All air conditioners require preventative maintenance to keep them running smoothly throughout their lifetime. Performing preventative maintenance can ensure your unit operates at the highest efficiency without premature breakdowns.
Regular preventative maintenance can help improve the efficiency of your air conditioning unit and save money on your electricity bill. A dirty air filter in an air conditioning unit can interfere with the machine’s ability to circulate conditioned air throughout the room. As a result, the air conditioner can run longer each day or cause you to change the temperature setting because the room feels uncomfortable even though the unit is running. A dirty condenser coil can cause the refrigerant compressor to run harder, which draws more amps from your electricity service and results in higher electricity bills.
Preventative maintenance can save a lot of money in repair costs by catching small problems before they become bigger, more expensive problems. Not only does a dirty condenser coil typically force the air conditioner to work harder and drive up the electricity bill, but a dirty coil can also force the compressor to work much harder and can result in premature failure of the compressor. The cost to check and clean condenser coils is generally much lower than the cost of replacing the compressor. Preventative maintenance can also detect other issues such as a water leak in the system that could cause damage to the AC unit or to the building structure.
Extend the life of your air conditioning unit by taking care of it throughout its working life. Air conditioners work best when they are regularly serviced and cleaned as needed. If one part fails to work as it was designed to, it can cause stress to the entire air conditioning system and result in a total breakdown. Keeping all parts in good working order means less stress on the equipment overall. The unit functions better over the long term and it can last much longer than a unit that has not been sufficiently maintained.
Customers who have a scheduled maintenance agreement in place enjoy added benefits, which include;
- Scheduled maintenance program to suit the AC requirements
- Priority attendance to any breakdown
- An air Conditioning system operating at peak performance and efficiency
United Refrigeration also offers commercial maintenance programs.
