We provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning (known as HVAC) solutions for a wide range of commercial and industrial properties. Whatever the activities inside your premises and the conditions outside, we keep your operations at the right temperature.
Air conditioning is borne out of refrigeration – taking heat from a space and disposing of it outside is the principle behind it. It keeps you warm when it’s cool, and cool when it’s warm.
A split type aid conditioning unit is actually made up of two units – the water or air-cooled condensing unit on the outside of a building and the air handling unit(s) inside. They are popular due to their flexibility – one outdoor unit can control multiple indoor units.
Split type systems are renowned for providing even temperatures in larger open plan spaces, and those of an awkward shape. Offering both heating and cooling to any commercial space, the different-sized air handling units mean they can be mixed and matched to suit premises with several different sized areas.
Great for office spaces, commercial buildings and retail spaces with a range of controls, timers and functions.
It could be refrigeration, cold room, air conditioning, ventilation or all four, whatever you need we can provide the HVAC solution thanks our experience and expertise gathered over more than 40 years.
A fact-finding site visit will provide us with the knowledge to design a truly bespoke system. Being proudly independent, we collate prices from various manufacturers to give you the best possible no obligation quote.
While the following list is not exhaustive, it provides an insight into the types of markets we serve: manufacturers, hotels, restaurants, food processing plants, public houses, offices, retailers, as well as the public sector and residential developments, to name but a few.
And our forward-thinking policy towards technology means we can help our clients adapt to cleaner and more efficient systems to recycle energy, save costs and help future-proof your business.
Air conditioning design & installation – We will work with you to understand your requirements and then design a system bespoke to your needs. We’ll take every aspect of your site into account, such as the room design and measurements, to recommend the type of HVAC installation that will provide the best air flow and temperature control.
We provide systems by Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and Daikin and can also work with architects and specifiers to provide systems to their requirements.
We provide five air conditioning systems:
Ventilation in the workplace has taken on increased significance since the Covid-19 pandemic with the need for fresh air a crucial factor in arresting the spread of the disease.
Although ventilation and air conditioning are inextricably linked, they provide different functions. Air conditioning solely focuses on the temperature of a working environment, while ventilation is all about the purity of the air quality within it.
Working environments that create smells and vapours should prioritise ventilation. For example, businesses that by the nature of their work create dust, hazardous materials, fumes and odours should talk to us about ventilation. By using a ventilator, the air is purified and the harmful products are removed.
We can also provide ventilation heat recovery, where we channel fresh air coming into a building through a heat exchanger to provide fresh, warm air for the inside.
Talk to us about your ventilation and air conditioning needs. Our experience and expertise mean we can design a system that’s perfect for your needs.
Whatever the age of your air conditioning unit, it’s important you have it serviced every 12 months or so to keep it running as safely and efficiently as possible. Regular servicing will increase its lifespan and could save you having to pay for expensive repairs.
We service heating, cooling and ventilation systems in all types of commercial and industrial properties and manufacturing processes – ranging from offices, shops and restaurants to cold stores, warehouses, food production and factory environments.
On-site maintenance and repairs – Our comprehensive maintenance packages are designed to keep your HVAC installation in the best possible working order and proactively warn you of potential failings. They include:
Our air conditioning maintenance packages are trusted by all kinds of clients, from property owners and tenants to business owners and process managers, to provide the best solutions and their unique challenges and requirements.
And should the worst occur, we can repair any make of HVAC installation thanks to our highly skilled, qualified and experienced engineers who have a high level of competence across a wide range of HVAC makes and systems.
All our engineers hold F-gas category 1 refrigerant handling certificates, giving you peace of mind that we have the required skill level and knowledge to install and maintain your heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment.
We believe they are the best in the business. On-call 24/7 for clients across the country, they’re central to our excellent reputation and our leading position serving businesses across the UK. They have a high level of technical competence and brilliant attention to detail.
MWL work with a wide spectrum of clients, and here is a glimpse at some of them:
The Dalziel Group, which serves the meat processing and retail butchery industry from 12 distribution sites throughout the UK, and The Real Lancashire Black Pudding Company are just two of our clients in the food processing and distribution sector.
Others include the growers and distributors of vegetables; the bakers of sweet treats for coffee shops, retailers and restaurant chains throughout the UK and Europe; wholesale suppliers of halal meat, fish, poultry, and providers of fresh food produce, butchery and groceries.
In the medical sector, we work with Rosegrove Surgery, a large GP surgery in Burnley. Some of our more unusual clients include the makers of currency and passports for countries around the world, and the creators of sustainable packaging products.
Air conditioning is borne out of refrigeration – taking heat from a space and disposing of it outside is the principle behind it. It can keep you warm when it’s cool, and cool when it’s warm.
The simple answer is yes, although it’s best if your condenser/compressor is on the outside of the building. The unit can draw in cold air and heat it, but it's normally less effort for your heat pump if you have the unit in as warm and sheltered area as possible so the incoming air is as warm as it can be, therefore needing less energy to heat it.
We can repair any make of HVAC installation thanks to our highly skilled, qualified, and experienced engineers who have a high level of competence across a wide range of HVAC makes, models and systems. We service heating, cooling, and ventilation systems in all types of commercial and industrial properties and manufacturing facilities – ranging from offices, shops and restaurants to cold stores, warehouses, food production and factory environments. Whatever the activities inside your premises and the conditions outside, we keep your operations at the right temperature.
Most modern HVAC systems are capable of regulating humidity due to an evaporator coil that condenses water vapour from the air, in a process akin to when condensation appears on the outside of a glass containing a cold drink. The liquid is then condensed out of the air, making your space less humid. The moisture collected by the evaporator coil goes to a drain and then is sent outside, away from your home or work premises.
Essentially, the higher an air-con unit’s Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) rating, the more efficient it is due to it having a higher cooling capacity per watt of power. However, the actual efficiency can vary due to various external factors like weather and humidity. The bigger the difference in temperature between indoors and outdoors, the harder your unit will have to work. There’s also a rating known as SEER, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, and this applies in countries that experience wide variations in weather conditions.
Although ventilation and air conditioning are inextricably linked, they provide different functions. Air conditioning solely focuses on the temperature of a working environment, while ventilation is all about the purity of the air quality within it by extracting dust, hazardous materials, fumes and odours.
However, we can provide ventilation heat recovery systems, where fresh air is channelled into a building through a heat exchanger to provide fresh, warm air for the inside.
