Having a fully functioning and serviceable cellar cooling system is often taken for granted but in the case of a pub it is absolutely essential to the smooth running of the business, especially in the warmer summer months.
Under the terms of your lease agreement you are responsible for the repair, maintenance and replacement of the cellar cooling system to your pub. To assist you with meeting these obligations Ei Publican Partnerships has developed its own Cellar Cooling Maintenance Scheme. This document outlines the key provisions of the scheme from which you will benefit.
When taking out a new lease you will be offered the opportunity of joining the scheme. Prior to acceptance an engineer will attend to carry out a thorough check on the equipment. A comprehensive report will be produced confirming the condition of the equipment and whether it can be accepted without the need for further works; in the event further work is essential, a quotation will be provided detailing the costs associated with this. The obligation would be down to you to rectify these issues prior to acceptance onto the scheme.
