With an estimated 54 million air conditioning and refrigeration units in Australia*, and most of us spending around 90% of our time indoors, having your air conditioning unit professionally serviced is a must.
Professional cleaning and maintenance of your unit not only maximises efficiency and performance, it ensures the air pumping out is clean and free from harmful bacteria.
Here are 5 reasons why you should have your unit maintained by a specialist:
1. Microbial growths can develop in unmaintained units, causing respiratory issues
Without proper scheduled cleaning, your air conditioner is the perfect breeding ground for mould, fungi, and bacteria to thrive. These particles are dispersed into the air when the unit is turned on, exposing you to respiratory infections and potentially triggering asthma attacks.
Mould biotoxin illness is a respiratory issue caused by prolonged exposure to mould, and if left untreated, can result in Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS).
2. Undetected issues can result in costly repairs
Proper maintenance can extend the life of your air conditioning unit and reduce the likelihood of expensive repairs later on.
Our specialists will check the refrigerant gas levels, test the thermostat, and ensure the internal components, such as coils, fins, and drainage, are in good condition. We will also be able to inspect the unit to identify issues you may encounter in future and recommend proactive repair options before the damage gets worse.
3. You may accidentally damage the unit
While there are basic things you can do to clean the unit yourself, such as regularly wiping over the unit and cleaning the mesh filters, a specialist will have the correct equipment and knowledge to service your unit more intensely, effectively, and efficiently.
4. Reduce foul odours
Have you ever noticed a bad smell in the room, but were unable to find the source? It could very well be coming from your air conditioning unit.
Often your specialist will be able to determine the cause of the problem by the smell coming from the unit. If it smells like dirty feet, it is most likely caused by water clogging. If it smells like exhaust fumes, it could be leakage of excess fluid.
5. Lower electricity bills
Pollutants and toxins will inevitably build up in your air conditioning unit over time, restricting airflow and forcing the unit to work harder to reach and maintain the set temperature. The extra energy required can drive up your electricity bill.
Investing in regular servicing and maintenance can help you save on energy costs while also improving performance.
