Air conditioning is a vital part of any home or business, offering warmth in winter and cooling in summer. However, as with most appliances and fittings, your air conditioning needs regular maintenance to ensure it is at its best at all times. Leaving your units bereft of attention can only lead to trouble further down the line when you need it the most – at Airway Air conditioning we provide premier air conditioning maintenance.

With this in mind, here are just a few reasons to keep your air conditioning in top condition.

Money Saving

There are several ways in which you save money when you make the effort to have maintenance for your units. The first is related to how well your air conditioning works, if your filters are blocked, or if there is a fault with your unit then it won’t be working to its fullest. It actually costs more to run if poorly maintained as the unit takes longer to get to temperature, causing the unit to use more electricity.

On top of this, if you find a small fault early enough it could be a relatively simple job to fix. On the other hand, if it remains undiscovered, the problem could become worse over time and create a huge repair bill further down the line.

Longer Lasting

Following on from the previous point, regular maintenance on your air conditioning will see the equipment last longer, so you needn’t worry about spending money to replace your units a year or two later. It’s the same principle you apply to everything else in that you need to look after it well to ensure it holds its longevity, otherwise you’re throwing money down the drain.

Improved Thermal Comfort

As we touched on before, keeping your units working to their best ability will improve how well they work, including how good they are at achieving your desired temperature. A poorly maintained unit could take its time getting to the correct temperature and may not ever reach it at all. Obviously the comfort in your home for your family or at work for your workforce is paramount, but by neglecting to maintain your units you miss an easy way to keep everyone thermally comfortable.

How Do I Know I Need Maintenance?

The thing with any kind of maintenance is that it’s supposed to be a preventative measure as opposed to something you do once a fault occurs. However, warning signs which could signal the need for a quick check up are:

  • Strange Smells
  • Loud/noisy operation
  • Complaints from staff
  • Leaking moisture

Keep a note of how often you have your air conditioning looked at by a professional and use this as guidance when it comes to booking in your next appointment. With a logbook of maintenance you can keep up to date with when your units were last checked out and avoid the obvious mistake of forgetting to have it done.
