This unit is constantly monitored by our Building Management System (BMS) which controls the temperature to the museum keeping it at an optimum Level.
The filters on our AHU system are replaced on a quarterly basis in line with our planned preventative maintenance (PPM) schedule.
Along with our Maintenance plans with external contractors, NDH, we are checking daily the operation of the AHU System to ensure all is working correctly.
