Mobile A/C service for construction equipment on the job

This summer’s record-breaking temperatures are putting air conditioning systems to the test on construction equipment everywhere. Excessive heat contributes to operator fatigue, which can result in lost productivity and create potentiaheavy equipment air conditioning repairl hazards on the job site, so it’s important to make sure your heavy equipment’s air conditioning systems are in peak working order. A poorly performing air conditioning system puts additional load on the machine’s engine, which means higher fuel consumption. Even a slow freon leak affects cooling performance, and the loss of lubricant can lead to system contamination or premature air conditioner failure. A freon recharge, in the short run, will keep your construction equipment’s A/C going, but it will not solve the root cause of the problem.

Ring Power’s certified heavy equipment air conditioning technicians can come to your job site to troubleshoot, diagnose, make adjustments and perform air conditioning repairs on your construction equipment. Our full A/C system evaluation includes the following checkpoints:
               • Electrical system        • Ducting                    • Condenser fan           • Blower motor        
               • Evaporator coils          • Compressor belt        • Refrigerant lines        • Freon pressure
And services: 
               • Clean the condenser coils (evaporator extra) 
               • Clean and inspect the condensate drain tubes 
               • Dye-testing of system to detect leaks
