What We Do
Living in a city that can experience all four seasons in one day, it is crucial to have effective air conditioning and heating systems in place. The risks of extreme temperatures are more serious for older adults than for the general population. Particularly if the person has an existing health condition, the risks of extreme heat or cold can be serious and potentially life-threatening. Quality, well-installed and maintained heating, cooling and fresh air ventilation systems can prevent health risks, as well as promoting better breathing and sleep quality.
Mechfield FM is a leading commercial air conditioning provider committed to offering personalised service with exceptional attention to detail. Whatever your commercial Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) needs, our expert team are here to help.
