Does your air conditioning system need some TLC?
When it comes to your air conditioning system, you can’t just have it installed and forget about it. If you want it to work effectively, you should make sure you get it serviced every year if it’s in your home or once every 3 – 6 months if it’s in a commercial setting. If you don’t, it won’t be working at 100% so you won’t feel the full benefit.
Here are five top reasons why you should book in your service pronto:
Prone to freezing up
If your evaporator coil drops below freezing your air conditioning unit will freeze up. This can be very frustrating. It’s not something that can be ignored, it won’t fix itself and can lead to more problems so it will need to be fixed. An engineer will be able to find out what’s causing it, it could be a mechanical failure, an issue with the pressure or inadequate air flow. Engineers however, often become overbooked in times of extreme cold weather, so think ahead and book before the weather turns.
Can produce stale odours
One of the reasons why you got an air conditioning system installed in the first place was probably that you could get fresh air circulating in your home or workplace. If you don’t have your filters cleaned regularly, you’ll get stale air and bad smells, the opposite of what you want.
When you have your system serviced, it gets a thorough clean. If you don’t get it serviced, your condensate drain line can get clogged up with sludge, dirt and mould. This leads to dirty water leaking out. Yuck!
Poor airflow = loss of performance
If you have a dirty filter, dirty blower fan blades or blocked vents, it can cause low airflow over the coil. This results in a reduction of air flow, so you won’t feel the power you normally would.
Higher energy bills
If your air conditioning system isn’t running efficiently it can result in you using more electricity, which means higher energy bills.
