Your air conditioner is not an infinite machine – it needs to be looked after using professional services regularly to continue functioning at peak performance and energy efficiency. This is especially true for those who live in Melbourne, as our soaring temperatures mean that our air conditioners are under more pressure and used more frequently. So, what do frequent services mean for you?
How Often Should I Service My Air Conditioner?
Our experts always recommend that you service your air conditioner at least once every year. However, there are some scenarios that warrant having it serviced more often. Possibly even two to three times every year. These include:
- You’ve noticed that your air conditioner isn’t working properly
- Your air conditioner is on constantly (such as in an office or in hot climates like we experience in Melbourne)
- You have an evaporative AC unit (these must be serviced twice every year; once before summer to ensure it’s in working order and again after summer to decommission it and prepare for winter)
Now, it’s possible you’re rolling your eyes at this, probably thinking that regular air conditioning services aren’t necessary. If that’s the case, let’s take a look at why servicing definitely is necessary.
Why Should I Service My Air Conditioner?
We’ve had to help countless customers who assumed that regular air conditioner services were unnecessary – hoping to save money by skipping them. Unfortunately, they were slapped with hefty bills down the line when regular repairs and even replacements were needed! This is also because any underlying problems went unnoticed for months, even years, giving them the time needed to worsen dramatically and make repairs much more expensive.
Simply put, regular maintenance services will significantly extend the lifespan of your air conditioner, making repairs and replacements a distant problem for the future. This offers huge savings, as replacements can cost up thousands of dollars depending on your model. These services will also ensure that your unit consistently functions at peak performance and energy efficiency, greatly reducing your monthly utility costs. As mentioned above, this is especially true in Melbourne, where temperatures often reach record-breaking heights.
As you can see, the costs of regular air conditioner services far outweigh those of expensive and regular repairs, replacements, and inefficient units. If you would like to save money and get the most out of your air conditioner, come to Melbourne’s leading specialists – HeatCool.
