Just like other home appliances, air conditioning systems also become worn and damaged over time. Regular wear and tear can lead to costly repair work and annoying breakdowns right when you need your A/C to be functioning at peak performance.
At Cold Front Air Conditioning, we always make sure your system is working at its best throughout the year. One way to keep your system in top condition is through preventative maintenance.
Benefits of Preventative Maintenance
When your system is operating at peak efficiency, it does not have to work as hard to air condition your home or office. By investing in a preventative maintenance plan, you are ensuring the continued effectiveness of your A/C.
How can preventative maintenance help you?
- Avoid costly repairs
Having your system regularly maintained can reduce the need for repairs. During preventative maintenance, a qualified technician will perform checks on your A/C. This will allow them to spot minor issues in your system and action them before they escalate into bigger problems that could eventually damage your entire unit.
- Increase equipment lifespan
One of the reasons air conditioning systems fail before the end of their estimated lifecycle is because of lack of maintenance. By investing in preventative maintenance, you are extending the useful life of your air conditioning system. Most air conditioners can last up to 10 to 12 years. Regular maintenance will help keep your system running well over its lifetime.
- Improve efficiency
Preventative maintenance enables your A/C to use energy more efficiently. Dirty, poorly-maintained systems strain to produce the desired temperature whilst removing moisture from the air. When your system is clean and well-maintained, it generates cool air more efficiently.
- Lower power bills
Regular maintenance will also help lower your utility bills. When your system is operating efficiently, it doesn’t need to work extra harder to achieve optimal temperatures. Your A/C uses less energy to produce cool air, therefore costing you less to operate.
- Improve air quality
Your system accumulates dirt and debris over the season. When you turn your A/C on, these particles are released inside your home, contributing to indoor pollution. When you have preventative maintenance performed, our licenced technician will free your system of these nuances so you can maintain a clean and healthy environment indoors.
But I have a 5-year warranty?
Typically, your system will have a Manufacturer’s Warranty of 5 years for parts and labour on replacement of faulty parts. This means if an air conditioner component fails during this period, the manufacturer will replace the part free of charge. However, if the part fails due to lack of maintenance, the manufacturer may pass the cost onto the customer – that’s you! Your warranty does not cover corrosion, blocked drains, or any breakdown related to filters not being cleaned or power supply problems that may occur (i.e. power surges in electrical storms or problems caused by geckos or rodents).
