Man or Machine – What could an AC Service Machine do for your business?
AP Air Ltd stocks the Service Cube and is the official UK supplier for Oksys, one of the industry experts in air conditioning service machines, so you might think we are biased but take a moment and let us explain why these units could prove beneficial to your company.
You might be surprised to know that our customer base for service machines is not limited to manufacturers or main dealers; they are also popular with independent mechanics wanting to increase turnover and who value the associated support we offer. The machine range we provide includes both R-134a & R-1234yf models, so all levels of service and customer requirements are met.
What’s in it for you? Introducing a service machine into your business could bring you…
more money! – Most of the service station models we supply, including the Cube, are equipped with a fully automatic working cycle and alarm warning; this means that instead of being tied to the machine you can set it running and get on with other jobs. Features such as the Cube’s inbuilt Agri database are also time-savers as you can quickly refer to the appropriate refrigerant levels of a range of vehicles at the touch of a button. As well as enabling you to fit more jobs into your schedule a service machine should also help reduce the day to day pressure on staff.
a better and eco-friendlier service – An element of human error is always the risk with manual servicing, though this need not be a concern if you are using a digitally calibrated service machine. Bypass the manual element of recovering and recharging refrigerant in an air conditioning system and you not only remove the contact/inhalation health risks to staff, you also avoid harmful leaks into the atmosphere. If that wasn’t enough, the service machine also reduces waste as it can recycle refrigerant by removing moisture from it.
a slicker service – Who doesn’t want to exceed customer expectations and give the competition a run for their money? Units like the 2019 Oksys range are equipped with Bluetooth enabling you to see the service information for a vehicle, as well as email it to your customer for a more professional package. With the Oksys machines it’s not just your customers who benefit; take advantage of the manufacturer’s free app Oksys Gen to conveniently view/download service jobs and Oksys LAB to service the machine and update your database.
even more money! – Subject to holding the necessary refrigerant handling licence and picking a suitable model, an air conditioning service machine could give you the opportunity to broaden your business offerings. Whether you want to branch out and start offering car as well as agri servicing, perhaps you fancy incorporating a mobile element to your workshop work, getting a service machine can create many new business possibilities.
