Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning

Although we’re known for second-to-none commercial refrigeration service, preventive maintenance and ice machine leasing we also repair and maintain HVAC equipment. Does YOUR exhaust hood make excessive noise? Does your swamp cooler or make up air no longer supply that fresh blast of fresh air into the kitchen?  Your equipment may need maintenance OR maybe it’s more serious and needs a repair. AJAX will take care of YOUR service requirements!

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

services4
Why should you invest in a maintenance service?
Myths…

  • It’s under warranty so it doesn’t need maintenance. Truth: All commercial equipment requires quarterly maintenance, at the very least. Just read your owner’s manual to confirm!
  • I just buy a five year compressor warranty so I don’t have to worry about costly repairs.Truth: Manufacturer’s warranties will be voided if improper voltage or dirty condensers cause compressor failure.  Multiple failures can occur before the compressor finally fails again.
  • I can do it myself.  Truth: Yes you can. Go DIY’ers!! All respect to you! Now we salute you but is the reality of the situation truly in line with this? Again, yes you can do it yourself, but do you on a quarterly basis? Even if you do, are you sure the interior and back area of the condenser are getting cleaned? Have you run ice machine cleaner through the water system every six months? Let our experts take care of your equipment so you can run your business! The expert eyes of our PM Team on the equipment will catch warning signs of costly failures before they occur.
  • Blow and Go is what I get from PM’s. Truth: Yes, your right when it comes to most service companies. AJAX’s PM program includes PM Supervisors who are your go to friendly contacts. They will ensure TOTAL QUALITY CONTROL (TQC) at your place of business and true VALUE! Contact the office today for a personal site visit.
