01 Aug 2017
We live in a country where it’s important to have air conditioning – not only to cool us in our hot summers, but to take the bite off in winter in our often poorly insulated homes. If you are privileged enough to have an air conditioner, then it’s essential to ensure that you maximise its' usage. In this article we take a look at 5 good reasons to regularly service your air conditioner.
1. Maintain the efficiency of your air conditioner
Your air conditioner loses approximately 5% of its overall efficiency every year if it goes without proper professional maintenance! Regular servicing ensures your unit runs at optimal capacity, giving you improved power consumption and quicker cooling and heating. lost efficiency can even be recovered through service and maintenance from a trained professional.
2. Lengthen the lifespan of your air conditioner
Air conditioning units, like any other mechanical devices, will become less efficient far sooner if regular servicing is not carried out. Regardless of how sophisticated the unit may be, blockages do occur and parts need to be replaced. With regular maintenance an air conditioning unit will keep up to 96% percent of its original efficiency and proper maintenance effectively doubles the life span of the average system.
3. Save on electricity costs
Air conditioners consume a large portion of the average monthly power bill and poorly maintained units can draw more power. Proper and efficient maintenance can make a significant difference. Monthly energy costs of up to a staggering 25% can be saved with regularly and efficiently serviced units.
4. Improve the quality of your air
An air conditioner working at its fullest capacity will keep your home more comfortable by controlling humidity, thereby maximizing cooling. Many of the health risks that are associated with poor air quality can be greatly reduced or eliminated, not only with correct initial system installation, but with regular servicing and maintenance.
5. Maintain the warranty on your air conditioner
Possibly the most important point of all - most air conditioning manufacturers, depending on the brand, provide a 1 or 2 year warranty on all new units if they are serviced regularly from the date of installation. Following this, failing to properly maintain the unit results in all warranties becoming null and void.
