All air conditioning systems need to be serviced from regularly. We all know this. The sad truth of the matter is that many people are unsure or unclear about when aircon maintenance is needed and who we should call.
Let’s face it, there are people who do aircon maintenance, and there are professionals. A friend once told me, if you think that hiring a professional is expensive; just wait till you hire an amateur. A trusted aircon servicing company in Singapore is vital to ensure the lifespan of the unit.
Below are some of the common problems homeowners encounter when they’ve let the maintenance on their AC go for far too long.
- Your Power Bill is High
Your aircon is one of the highest consumers of electricity in your home. Having a clean system ensures efficiency and therefore reduces the power consumption in you home. A dirty aircon system means that your compressor will also need to work harder to cool the rooms in your home. The dirtier your aircon is, the more inefficient it will become, the harder the compressor will have to work and therefore, the higher your power consumption will be.
- You’re Getting Sick More Often
Air conditioners work by circulating and recycling air. Air is passed through and evaporator coil and a fan then blows this cooled air into your room. While this makes everyone in the room comfortable, it also means that aircons also circulate dust and pathogens. An aircon system filled with dirt can aggravate breathing problems and leave one feeling ill and fatigued.
- Your Unit Doesn’t Cool as Well As it used to
Just like any other machine, your aircon unit needs to be cleaned regularly. If your aircon unit is dirty, you’ll find that your room will not be cooling down as quickly as before. This a sure sign that you probably need to have your system serviced to increase its effectiveness and efficiency. In extreme cases, cleaning can increase function by up to 40%.
If you’re experiencing any of these problems, it is likely that your aircon needs an immediate cleaning service by a professional to prevent your machine becoming damaged, overworked and breaking down.
