Air conditioning is increasingly making its mark within many areas of the UK, and the leisure industry is no exception. It has been announced recently that even the prestigious tennis courts at Wimbledon are to benefit from 70 million pounds worth of modernisations which include an air conditioning system to protect the grass.
As air conditioning contractors, Turn Key Air Conditioning Ltd, have experienced massive growth within the leisure industry and have gained ongoing contracts with many high end clients throughout Scotland. Our latest projects include the Installation and maintenance of air conditioning systems for restaurants like Beefeater, Taybarns, Table Table and The Hub. Some of our newest clients include American restaurant chain TFI Friday’s, who have contracted us to service and maintain their air conditioning systems. TFI Friday’s have also requested that we embark on an R22 refrigerant replacement project for them. Our retail clients include Wilkinsons, William Hill, Superdrug, O2 and Thorntons along with many other famous names in Glasgow, Edinburgh and other Scottish locations.
Service and leisure industry professionals understand the importance of state of the art systems within their premises to cater to every need. Retail businesses, hotels and restaurants have to provide a comfortable environment for their customers and employees, in order to guarantee success.
Turn Key Air Conditioning, are the preferred HVAC contractors for many hotels in Glasgow, Edinburgh and across Scotland including Hotel Indigo in Edinburgh, The Arthouse Hotel, Glasgow, Double Tree Hilton in North Queensferry, Edinburgh, Holiday Inn, Marriott Hotel Glasgow and Premier Inn Hotels. All of our projects are carried out with the utmost care and attention to detail, and we try to be as unobtrusive as possible in order to allow business as usual. We supply a range of products from major manufacturers such as Toshiba, Daikin and Mitsubishi Electric. Our off-site manufacturing offers a ground breaking solution for companies all over Scotland as well as places south of the border like Newcastle Upon Tyne International Airport.
Our expertise has enabled us to carry out a wide range of projects in hotels, restaurants and bars in Glasgow, Edinburgh and other areas of Scotland. Glasgow is a vibrant city full of diverse life with art museums, restaurants and amazing shopping, and the Hotel Indigo in Glasgow is a multi award winning boutique hotel. This hotel is a listed building which was originally an electric power station, the first of its kind in Glasgow, and later used as an insurance company call centre. Carefully renovated in recent years, significant structural work revealed layers of architectural history.
Constructed in 1892, the building featured 1920’s ceramics and plasterwork that had to be retained when converted into a state of the art 96 bedroom hotel. Castle Building Services appointed TK Air Conditioning as the specialist air conditioning contractor for the Glasgow project. We installed an extremely high performance, eco friendly and cost effective air conditioning system for this Scottish hotel.
Since 2015, it has been illegal to use Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), including the ozone-depleting refrigerant gas R22, and it has been banned in air conditioning and heat pump system manufacture since 2004. As global warming is an ongoing issue, these measures have been put in place to ensure environmentally friendly products and processes are used which will not damage the earth.
Replacement is the recommended option in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Scotland in general for a number of reasons, and our business solutions partner, Mitsubishi Electric point out some key factors to support this. Replacing can save on running costs, up to 50% in some cases, as existing equipment may be running inefficiently. In addition, running your current system is likely to become extremely difficult as spare parts become rare or obsolete. Older systems using this kind of technology will be targeted by legislation as the government is committed to reducing energy use in buildings.
