Ongoing maintenance is vital to extending the lifespan of your air conditioning system. Without hands-on servicing and taking care of breakdowns and other faults promptly, you can significantly compromise the wellbeing of your unit. Working with a skilled air conditioning maintenance provider will result in more efficient communication and a more optimal AC unit for you and your building.
From experience to credentials, here are 6 telltale signs to indicate you’re working with a trusty air conditioning maintenance provider.
A reliable air conditioning unit comes from working with a good air conditioning maintenance provider. But what makes an air conditioning maintenance provider good? To help you make the right choice, here are six traits or skills worth considering.
Are They Full-Service AC Specialists?
When it comes to choosing an air conditioning maintenance provider, you’ll want to look at their skill set. The best provider will have a wide range of skills, not limited to maintenance alone.
Here at HunterCON, we offer a wide range of AC services, as well as electrical and security services. We have a wealth of experience with systems of all kinds, so no matter the size of the job, we can help. Here are just a few of the processes involved with servicing your system:
• Filter maintenance
• Refrigerant leak test
• Drain maintenance
• Electrical component test
• Check insulation on refrigeration lines
• System operation
• Inspecting electrical connections
• Thermostat operation
Are They Familiar With Your Unit?
Although most AC systems are quite similar, they do have their nuances. You’ll want to ensure you employ a maintenance provider who knows your unit inside and out, regardless of whether it’s a residential split system or a commercial ducted system.
We are air conditioning experts with a thorough understanding of all kinds of systems. We work with all major air conditioning brands and know every model.
• Actron Air
Are They Licensed?
As with any trade, it’s important to work with a certified AC maintenance provider to ensure peace of mind throughout the entire job. Licensed AC specialists carry an ARCtick number, meaning they are qualified to handle the dangerous materials involved with air conditioning units.
This also means they are fully qualified to advise on how the system works, general upkeep, formulate preventative maintenance plans and service your system when it needs it.
Do They Provide Preventative Maintenance Programs?
The best AC maintenance providers are those that have the option to include you in their preventative maintenance program as part of their service. A preventative plan for your air conditioning system will help ensure long life and reliable system. If HunterCON installed your AC unit, you’d automatically be put into this program, which comes with an additional 5-year warranty.
We specialise in tailoring preventative maintenance plans specific to the needs of you and your air conditioning system. This will increase the efficiency and reliability of your system, ultimately leading to a reduction in repair costs, lower electricity bills, and an increase in its lifespan.
How Well Do They Communicate?
The best maintenance providers are those that communicate clearly, right from the first phone call. Experience is evident in how well a service provider can articulate, so be sure to ask plenty of questions when choosing a provider.
We pride ourselves on putting relationships with our customers first, no matter the size of the job. Having a nimble team means we can offer ongoing support to all of our clients and see that you always know who you are talking to.
Are They Local?
Air conditioning maintenance is all about speed and efficiency, therefore working with a local specialist is very important. Some AC breakdowns are considered emergencies, and will require attention right away – you don’t want to be left in the lurch by a provider who is based on the other side of Sydney.
We are based in the Inner West. However, our operations span the greater metro area, including the Eastern Suburbs, Lower North Shore and South West. We always respond quickly and aim to be on-site as soon as possible.
With over 9 years of experience under our belt, we pride ourselves on providing air conditioning maintenance services of the highest quality. If you’re looking for a quote, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
