Air Conditioning​

Boats and Barcos offer a full and comprehensive range of air conditioning servicing and replacement / upgrade

Whilst most marine air conditioning systems are supplied with MarineAir marine air conditioning, Climma marine air conditioning or Dometic marine air conditioning, there are many options depending on the requirement and space restrictions for each vessel and some solutions are supplied by the smaller brands in the market place, if you would like us to survey your vessel for a new installation of marine air conditioning or inspect your existing marine air conditioning system please contact us to make an appointment.

Our in house engineers specialise in re- gassing, annual inspections, cleaning It is very important to maintain your air conditioning system, air handlers have an air filter which need to be kept clean for clear air flow, if air flow is reduced the efficiency and performance will be effected and prolonged usage with reduced air flow can cause irreversible damage.

Your Airconditioning annual service includes:

Clean air filters on handlers

Clean salt water strainer

Check seacocks for system isolation if necessary

Check for leaks and re gas where necessary

Check water pump for clear flow
Pump down test for compressor efficiency

Test operation of the system recording temperatures at the point of air delivery in cold (and hot function if applicable)

*** Please note that all works with air conditioning gas are performed with a safe recovery system to insure the environment is protected at all times***

Marine Heating Service

Many vessels are fitted with reverse air conditioning to provide heating and chilling, these systems need to be serviced along with the airconditioning (please see airconditioning annual service)

If your vessel is fitted with a diesel type heater, Eberspacher marine diesel heater, Webasto marine diesel heater or similar type, it is important to have these inspected yearly. Each brand or design has its own schedule, please contact us with the make or a photo of your unit / control and we will happily advise the manufacturers recommendation.
