When the air conditioner is in use, air is being constantly drawn into the system. This air may contain dust, pollen and various other particles and pollutants that can be harmful. The system has filters that will pick up this debris but, over time, the filters will become clogged and dirty.
A clogged filter will impede the airflow so that it doesn’t move through the system as easily. As a result, the system will have to work harder, causing electricity bills to rise, but may still not be as efficient as previously so your comfort levels are decreased.
Dust on the evaporator coil will also reduce its ability to absorb heat so that air is not cooled as well as before. Overall, a dirty system can increase electricity costs by up to 25% while not providing the same level of service.
Reduced Repair Bills
Since dirty filters and other components will cause the system to work harder, this will eventually result in component failure. Dirt may cause the system to overheat and eventually stop working.
Failure of the system will not only cause inconvenience and discomfort, but it may also lead to expensive repair bills that can be avoided by regular cleaning. If the situation becomes really bad, the system may become unrepairable, and a complete replacement may be necessary. Prompt action is therefore needed to avoid this happening.
Improved Air Quality
An efficient air conditioning system will circulate the air inside your property and ensure it’s healthy and clean. If, however, it’s allowed to become dirty it will instead circulate air that’s been contaminated by fungi, mould, germs and bacteria that will thrive within the units. This will be particularly bad for people with asthma and other respiratory illnesses and can also cause problems for those who are relatively healthy.
Cleaning the system regularly and thoroughly will prevent the filters from becoming clogged and ensure that only clean air comes out of the vents. So, as well as keeping the air clean, the air conditioning system will also ensure it’s healthy to breathe. This is particularly important at the time of a COVID-19 pandemic when clean air is essential to prevent it from spreading.
Periodic Cleaning and Maintenance
At Extrordinair, we not only supply and install cooling and heating systems, but we also ensure they continue to operate at peak efficiency. We can provide a full service every year before the heat of the summer arrives, so you’ll know the system will work well. We’ll give it a deep clean and ensure all parts of the system are working properly.
Regular maintenance will enable us to replace components that are not working properly or need renewal. At the same time, we’ll be able to identify potential failures and take the necessary action before they become more serious and expensive. A periodic clean and service will ensure your air conditioning continues to operate efficiently, save you money on electricity and repair bills, prolong the life of your system and keep you comfortable with no frustrating or inconvenient failures.
