Why Is Air Conditioning Maintenance Needed?

  • Extended Lifespan: Scheduled maintenance prolongs the life of your AC system, reducing the need for premature replacements.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Properly maintained systems operate more efficiently, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower bills.
  • Early Issue Detection: Regular maintenance allows for the early identification of faults, giving you time to plan and address them before they escalate.
  • Preventive Repairs: By spotting problems early, you avoid unexpected breakdowns, minimising inconvenience and costly emergency repairs.
  • Reliable Functioning: A well-maintained system means fewer chances of sudden failures, ensuring your comfort and peace of mind.
  • Compliance Assurance: Regular maintenance helps your business comply with f-Gas regulations, ensuring legal requirements are met.
  • Manufacturer’s Warranty: In order to maintain a manufacturer’s parts warranty, a maintenance visit/s will be needed each year.

Regular maintenance proves to be a proactive and financially prudent approach, offering long-term savings and hassle-free operation.

How often does air conditioning need to be serviced?

For the home AC system that is only used to cool in the warmer months, a yearly service is recommended. If, however, your home unit is used most days to heat and cool, a 6 monthly service is required.

In a commercial setting, such as a shop, restaurant, or office, a service every 6 months is the recommended regularity.

In business premises where there are computers/servers or clean rooms, three services a year are essential. In a setting where the impurities in the air are higher, such as workshops and gyms, three service visits are highly recommended.

Tips for Efficient Air Conditioning

Here are some valuable tips to make the most of your air conditioning system:

  • Keep Filters Clean: Regularly clean or replace air filters to ensure proper airflow and system efficiency.
  • Optimal Thermostat Settings: Set your thermostat at a comfortable temperature to avoid overworking the system.
  • Seal Duct Leaks: Leaky ducts can lead to energy wastage. Have them sealed to improve efficiency.
  • Proper Insulation: Ensure your home or office is adequately insulated to maintain indoor temperature.
  • Scheduled Maintenance: Stick to a routine maintenance schedule to identify and address issues early on.
