Now that winter has well and truly set in, a lot of us have our heat pumps in use every day – and of course, the air conditioning feature is used regularly in our scorching Australian summer too. Did you know that air conditioning companies actually recommend a regular servicing of your air conditioner? Reverse cycle conditioners actually collect the dust from the air to help it clean. This dust is kept in the filters and of course, over time, builds up. So, what actually happens if you skip servicing?
Your System Becomes Less Effective
When the ducts get blocked with dust and dirt, less air gets filtered through. This means that only a small amount of your air is being conditioned at a time, resulting in your home heating up or cooling down slower, and in turn uses a lot more power due to having to be on for a longer time. This also means that since your air con is working harder just to filter the air in the immediate area, other rooms in your home will really struggle to get the benefit of the aircon – if at all. Hiring a professional to clean your air conditioner can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Your Air Loses Quality
Recirculating the dust and dirt that does manage to escape from the filters means your air is actually lower quality than before you turned the air conditioner on. Dust in the air is a major trigger for asthma and other allergies, meaning you could be harming the health of yourself or your family by running an air conditioner that has never been serviced, or is past due. Having a professional in to service your filters could see a big improvement in the health and breathing in you and your family members.
It Fails Altogether
When something goes wrong with an air conditioning system it can sometimes be a simple fix, but with an aircon that has never been serviced or properly cleaned, parts failure can often mean expensive repairs or the need for a whole new system. This is just another great of example how a regular clean can save you a lot of money in the long run, and you don’t have to worry about being left without an air conditioner on a 40 degree day!
