Like any piece of complex equipment, your AC system needs occasional maintenance to avoid a potentially expensive aircon repair. Every type of AC system has its own unique set of potential problems that need to be checked to ensure that everything is working as the manufacturer intended. There are mechanical parts that can wear and begin to affect other components of the system. Electrical or electronic faults could impact the way the system works and how it responds to your needs. For these reasons we recommend that you contact AirSpares and ask us about scheduled maintenance for your AC system.
Why Bother Servicing?
When an AC system is not serviced regularly, it will be next to impossible for someone with no training to diagnose or fix the problem. There may be warning signs, such as a loss of cooling, increased energy bills, and strange noises, but even if the problem is identified, it will need to be professionally repaired. However, repairs can be expensive, and servicing is a far cheaper option overall. When an AC system is well maintained it’s less likely to fail when you need it most, and any repairs that are required can be detected earlier. Early detection can often lead to fixing minor issues before they develop into larger problems that require expensive repairs and in some case even replacement.
Is Professional Servicing Necessary?
It is true that there are some things that we can all do to keep our AC systems working well. We can ensure that the air filters are checked, changed and/or cleaned regularly to maintain the airflow in our homes. We can also make sure that there are no object or foliage blocking our external units and stopping them from working correctly. We can clean our ducts and raise the temperature to reduce the strain our systems at the busiest times of the year. However, one thing that we cannot and should not do is attempt to diagnose or repair our AC systems without formal training. It would be very easy to injure yourself and cause damage to your air conditioning that would be expensive to repair. Always call on a local trusted professional
How Often Should an AC System be Serviced?
As a good rule of thumb, an AC system should be serviced prior to each heating or cooling period to make sure that it’s ready for the months ahead. It’s a good idea to book a service early; most people wait until the summer or winter has arrived, and then air conditioning companies end up being very busy catching up. If there are any major problems that needs to be addressed, the technician will advise you and wait for your authority to fix it. In many cases, some simple adjustments and cleaning are all that’s needed to make sure that your AC system is as effective and energy efficient as possible.
