Can’t sleep at night? Sniffles, runny nose and sore throat getting you down? You have tried all the lozenges, thick bitter herbal concoctions and nasal sprays to no avail.
How about servicing your aircon? Have you thought about that? When was the last time you gave a thought to your poor old trusty aircon?.
Chances are you use your aircon everyday or at least every night. Just like your car and any other piece of machinery, your aircon needs and deserves to be regularly serviced.The evaporator and condenser coil collects dirt over the years. This dirt reduces airflow reducing its ability to absorb heat. Avoid this problem by checking and cleaning the coil every year.
Amy from Yew Wai Air Conditioning, an air cond service repair expert on Gawin explains why you should maintain your air con:
1. DUSTY AIR CONS INCREASE ENERGY USE. YOU SPEND MORE ON ELECTRICITY
Filters need to be routinely cleaned or replaced. Filters, coils and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function efficiently through out its years of use and to avoid decline in performance and increase in energy use.
Some filters are reusable, they just need to be cleaned while others need to be replaced. Replacing a dirty filter with a clean one can lower energy consumption by 5% to 15%. If you have pets or dusty conditions in your house or office, you will need to clean or replace the air con systems filters every one or two months. A well maintained air con costs less to operate. When the unit is not well maintained it takes more power to operate costing more on your energy bill.
2. POOR AIR QUALITY MESSES UP YOUR BREATHING
Cleaning your air con regularly improves indoor air quality. Poor air quality from dirty components and clogged filters can result in allergies and breathing problems. Especially for small children and the elderly and those who stay indoors a lot. Improved air quality is one of the best benefits of regular air conditioning maintenance.
3. A CONSISTENTLY COMFORTABLE HOME
Consistent home comfort – it’s the hottest night and you’re trying to sleep when your aircon decides to throw in the towel. Avoid this.
So don’t forget to regularly service your air con. If an aircon service isn’t improving the quality of your air then you may need an expert to look into the problem. Find air conditioning service experts on Gawin.
