Regular maintenance can help you save money on energy bills.
Without regular maintenance, an air conditioner loses about 5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation. This means that your air conditioner has to work harder each year to perform at the same level, costing you more money, and causing more wear-and-tear on the unit, shortening its life.
But with regular maintenance, your air conditioning unit should be able to serve you faithfully and efficiently for many extra years, saving you money over the long run.
Performing regular maintenance on your A/C unit all year long will ensure you are getting the best out of your system. This will lead to significant savings on your electric bills while having a comfortable home. To help you with this, we offer air conditioning maintenance agreements that provide for checking and ensuring that your system is optimised for peak performance.
Freon levels are checked and regulated. If you are low on Freon, it could be preventing your system from cooling properly. It may also be a signal that there is a leak somewhere in the lines. We make sure your Freon levels are set for optimal performance.
Regular maintenance also helps prevent clogged condensate drains which can be full of harmful bacteria. Water and bacteria can build up in the lines that drain excess water from the system. We flush out the condensate lines on every visit. To prevent water leaking issues, it’s very important to make sure these lines are clear. In cases where algae buildup is present, we include algae tablets to clean the affected area.
We also thoroughly inspect all parts of the system. A squeaky motor may need some oil and lubrication. We also check all electrical connections and controlling devices for proper fit and voltage. This includes calibrating the thermostat if needed, and checking the safety controls.
