A questioned asked by many, ideally all air conditioning systems should be serviced/maintained twice a year in order to keep the system(s) running and working effectively and as efficiently as possible.
Most people tend to run into issues with their air conditioning systems when they have not been serviced on a regular basis. Air conditioning filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service.
Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce the system’s efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity.
Unmaintained systems can also begin to produce a smell when used, this is because the system has not been correctly maintained and the system has become clogged.
A regular maintenance visit from a qualified engineer should include some or all of the following checks:
- ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC CONTROLS
- TEMPERATURE/HUMIDITY CONTROLLERS
- PRESSURE SWITCH AND FLOW SWITCHES
- SAFETY AND LIMITING DEVICES
- ACTUATORS AND DAMPERS
- HEATERS (ELECTRIC)
- REFRIGERATION SYSTEM
- WATER PUMPS ALL TYPES
With the proper maintenance your air conditioning and heating equipment will work more economically and be more dependable for years to come. Your air conditioner loses 5% of its overall efficiency every year it goes without proper professional maintenance. Systems operating at peak efficiency can cut monthly energy costs by up to 25%. Proper maintenance effectively doubles the life span of the average residential heating and cooling system.
We recommend a minimum of one annual service/maintenance a year on all air conditioning systems. Even oon air conditioning sytems that are onlyused so many months of the year.
