Preventive Technical Health Check
Is your HVAC system still fit for purpose?
– by Armin Bock, 1 August 2017
Regular preventive check-ups are crucial if your HVAC system is to function properly at all times. A healthy HVAC system minimises the risk of system failure, guarantees an optimal indoor climate and reduces power consumption, making your HVAC system more energy-efficient, healthy and environmentally friendly. Heinen & Hopman has introduced the ‘Technical Health Check’ for all marine and offshore related HVAC systems.

The Technical Health Check is one of the services we offer for preserving a high-quality HVAC system onboard your vessel. All essential features of the system are examined and you will be given sound advice on the status of the system. The Technical Health Check includes:
- Ensuring ducting is clean to avoid bacterial growth
- Examination of the system’s status
- Assessing whether a sufficient amount of spare parts are available
- Status report with advice where required
- Check Vs Safety (Class and authorities)
Why do we need a check-up?
Prevention is always better than cure. As any failure of your HVAC system is very inconvenient. Preventive check-ups avoid unnecessary repairs and ensure there will be no downtime of your HVAC equipment or – even worse – your vessel.
How can I arrange a Technical Health Check?
Heinen & Hopman has a 24/7 global service network at your disposal and can offer you on-site service anywhere in the world. We can also perform a survey when you are sailing or located offshore.
