Summer is Coming | Is Your Air-Conditioner Ready?

With summer we also see the arrival of week on week 30 degree plus days and nights.  We have found during these times that the stress loads on air conditioning and ceiling fans sharply increases impacting upon productivity and lifespan.  We would encourage you to have these appliances serviced and cleaned before the heat wave is well and truly here.

In addition, if you do have an air conditioning unit at your property property, regular servicing is recommended for the following reasons:

 

Health

Having a dirty air-conditioner can certainly have a negative impact on your health over time. Dirty filters and ducts can result in a build-up of allergens and bacteria in the air, which can exacerbate existing health issues or even contribute to the spread of some illness. Keeping your filters clean means the less likelihood of you and family being subjected to the nasties that can harbor there.

 

Efficiency of the Unit

Having a regular service (even just once a year) will ensure that your air-conditioner is working at maximum efficiency.  This essentially equates to lower running costs and a longer life span.

 

Avoiding a breakdown during peak use times

Having an air conditioner break down in peak periods (which is usually the way it happens) can be at best frustrating and at worst downright dangerous particularly for the elderly, the very young, and those with compromised immunity Getting a technician to come out during these times can be a challenge due to high volumes of break-downs.

If it has been a while between cleans, we highly recommend getting in touch with us so we can arrange this for you as it may well be time to book in some preventative maintenance.

We have in fact been able to negotiate some excellent rates with our preferred providers to assist our Landlords with this cost.
