We cannot emphasize enough the necessity that air conditioning systems are regularly maintained.
Our teams of dedicated air conditioning service technicians operate throughout Gauteng and they focus on both installations and maintenance of air conditioner units. Because of their knowledge and experience they can determine whether any particular part is near the end of its serviceability and if so we will inform the client and advise that it be replaced to prevent your aircon to also unexpectedly fail (all aircons fails only…) after hours, on Sundays, long weekends and when your in-laws are on their way for a, carefully planned, family gathering
There’s no ‘ifs and buts’ that the lifespan of regularly serviced air conditioning units will outlast units that have been neglected. We are still servicing units that we installed over five years ago which run as well as they did the day they were installed. Conversely, we’ve seen the same branded units that had to be replaced after only three years due to the lack of regular servicing.
Well-maintained air conditioning equipment keeps running at peak performance and keeps energy bills down! The very fact that we offer an unrivaled 10-year warranty on all units we install and are responsible for the ongoing maintenance speaks volumes about the real longevity of aircon units.
How Do I Know if my Air Conditioner Needs Servicing?
There are a few signs showing that your air conditioner service is overdue. Common signs are when you notice that the unit no longer performs as well as it used to, e.g. not cooling or heating as effectively, or air flow is restricted. Another common sign would be unpleasant smells coming from the system. If any of these signs are apparent, then it is important to get your units serviced ASAP. During this time you are at the highest risk of the unit failing. We experience that the vast majority of expensive aircon repairs occur in systems which have not been subject to regular maintenance or servicing. The installation of your air conditioning system is a major investment. Naturally, you will want to protect your investment by both prolonging the life of your system and ensuring that the air conditioning units continue to run efficiently and economically.
How Often Should An Airconditioning System be Serviced?
Typically, when an AC system is used in a residential environment for cooling only, one service visit per annum is generally sufficient. However, where the system is used in both heating and cooling modes, we recommend at least two visits per year. For commercial applications, e.g. shops, offices or restaurants, a minimum of two visits per year would be required. In critical locations, e.g. server rooms, trading floors, workshops or hairdressing or beauty salons where there are often high levels of airborne pollutants in the air, we would advise that your air conditioning maintenance program allows for three or more service visits. We also offer great deals if you have multiple air conditioners that require servicing. Contact us for further information and a quotation on our air conditioning service and maintenance packages.
