The Peak of Success

During the first days of July 2012, Andrews Air Conditioning Business Development Manager, Sam Law, completed what must be one of the toughest physical tests in the UK – the Four Peaks Challenge.

In just 47 hours, 57 minutes and 26 seconds he and his team-mates climbed and descended the mountains of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Helvellyn in England, Snowdon in Wales and Carrantuohill in Ireland. In all they climbed a total height of almost 14,500ft and drove nearly 2000miles.

To make all the pain worthwhile, the team gathered sponsorship totalling an amazing £12,000 in aid of the Wooden Spoon Society, the Children’s Charity of UK Rugby, whose Patron is ex England Captain and British Lion, Phil Vickery.

Is Your Air Conditioning an Environmental Risk?

If your air conditioning is over 10 years old it probably uses R22 refrigerant, an ozone-depleting CFC which must be phased out by law.

Andrews Air Conditioning is at the forefront of efforts to help owners, operators and users of air conditioning systems understand their legal obligations. The good news is that modern, replacement air conditioning not only uses ozone-friendly refrigerants but is also highly energy efficient and cost effective.

If you’re not sure whether you have R22 inside your air conditioning, don’t get hot and bothered, just visit to download the brand new R22 Replacement App, or call 0800 731 8833 for a free R22 survey.

Michelin Replaces Tired Air Conditioning

As part of a major investment in their Dundee tyre manufacturing facility, Michelin Tyre plc contacted Andrews Air Conditioning Services to decommission and remove an aged packaged system. The existing installation, supplying critical cooling to the site’s IT suite, no longer met the stringent performance specification required by Michelin UK. It was found to contain the ozone-depleting R22 refrigerant which is being rapidly phased out.

Andrews Air Conditioning Services removed the obsolete units and replaced them with two Toshiba under-ceiling systems, featuring an auto restart function to ensure rapid restoration of air conditioning following a power failure. The sophisticated systems also interface with the building’s fire panel, ensuring the systems shut down immediately in the event of a fire alarm. New production equipment is being installed at the Dundee plant which will enable it to manufacture the latest generation of car tyres.
