All You Need To Know About Air Conditioning Servicing


Air Conditioners are very sturdy pieces of machinery and are manufactured to withstand all types weather conditions and to be able to run through out the year with out been switched off.  Due to this a lot of homeowners tend to believe that their aircon’s will not need regular servicing once installed. The truth is that only a regular service of the air conditioner will guaranty the optimum utilisation of the unit.

 

Why is Air Conditioning Servicing is Necessary?

It is a fact that an air conditioner loses about 5% of its efficiency for every year of its operation.  By maintaining the regular servicing, the efficiency of the aircon can be maintained by up to 95% of its original efficiency. A higher efficiency will mean better cooling, lower electricity bills and can help you avoid higher costs of repairs in the future.  An air conditioner that is not serviced regularly will use more electricity for its day-to-day operations and will inevitably leading to a higher electricity bill when compared to aircon’s that are regularly serviced. Lastly, an aircon unit not serviced regularly will not be able to cool the air effectively, which will lead to discomfort and irritation.
 
So to prevent these extra cost and irritation, you should have your air conditioner serviced regularly.
