Why Service Your Air Conditioner?by Airrite Mech4 Air-rite Mechanical Services
The summer season is fast approaching and soon you would be needing an air conditioner to keep you cool. Air conditioners are just like any other machine. They need regular maintenance and servicing if you want to continue using them. This becomes especially important when you are using it throughout all seasons if it’s a split system AC. There is a chance that dust has accumulated in the filters of the air conditioner. If that’s the case then the air conditioner’s efficiency will drop and it might not be able to cool the room as well as it used to. This is why it is important that you service your air conditioner after every few months. The following are some issues that you would have to face if you don’t service the air conditioner regularly.
Higher Energy Costs
Air conditioners have filters placed inside them to filter the air before it can be cooled down. When these filters are new, they perform this job effortlessly and thus, the air conditioner functions at peak efficiency. However, after being in use for a few months, the filters of the air conditioner become clogged with dust and fine particles. This makes it difficult for them to filter the air. As this unfiltered air enters the air conditioner, the dust and fine particles it is carrying, stick to the evaporator coil. They lower the heat-absorption capacity of the coil, making it difficult for it to cool the air. The coil has to work overtime and consume more energy to cool the air. As a result, your energy bills keep getting higher.
Development of Bigger Faults
Just as the case with any other machine, the air conditioner starts developing some minor issues after being in service for a few years. Regular maintenance and periodic servicing can help in dealing with these minor issues quite easily. However, if you don’t service your air conditioner frequently then these minor issues develop into bigger faults. Such faults can be hard to repair and might cause the air conditioner to become useless. Thus, if you want to ensure the durability of your air conditioner, you should look to service it at least once in every three months.
