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 in a timely manner, 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.
Why you should be maintaining your AC system
Take a look at our handy guide to maintaining your AC system, including the importance of system maintenance, what is involved in service, as well as the potential cost savings that maintaining your AC will bring.
Why is maintaining your AC system important? There are a plethora of reasons you should service your AC system consistently. However, we have narrowed it down to three primary reasons.
Reduce Electricity Usage
An AC unit that has not been regularly serviced will cost significantly more to run every hour. However, with regular maintenance, you could run an average-sized AC unit for less than one dollar per hour. Not only is this good for your bank account, but it is better for the planet too, by reducing electricity usage.
Protect your family’s health
Neglected air-conditioning systems will create the perfect environment for all sorts of bacteria, germs, and nasty contaminants to build up, affecting the air quality and subsequently your family’s health. Regular servicing will ensure your AC system is as clean and hygienic as can be.
Increase system lifespan
This one is pretty obvious, but the better maintained your AC system is, the longer it will last. Not only is this a great cost-saving, but you will also benefit from not having to pay for costly repairs from damage that the service prevents.
How to recognise quality air conditioning service providers?
From experience to credentials, here are 6 things to consider when choosing the best air conditioning maintenance provider for you.
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:
Refrigerant leak test
Electrical component test
Check insulation on refrigeration lines
Inspecting electrical connections
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, such as:
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 very well, 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 specialist who is local 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.
