How often should I service my aircon?
Household air-con units that are used 12 hours daily or less should be serviced every 3 to 4 months. For heavier use, consider servicing your unit every 2 months. Air-conditioners for office and commercial usage should be serviced once every month.
What happens if I do not service my aircon?
The life span of the unit will be shortened, while air coolness will decrease with usage. Water leakages and other problems may occur when blockage builds up in the drainage system. The inefficient operation will then cause the electricity consumption to increase, raising the cost of monthly bills.
When should I consider a chemical overhaul?
If you have not serviced your aircon regularly, a chemical overhaul is the best option for you. A good indication that you require a chemical overhaul is when your unit performs irregularly, starts to leak or emits unpleasant odours.
Why isn’t the aircon blowing cold air?
There are several reasons for an aircon to underperform, but the most common causes are dirty air filters, internal blockages, clogged fan blower, shortage of refrigerant or faulty spare parts.
Getting your aircon serviced regularly is the key to maintaining your unit’s optimal performance and ensuring the quality and consistency of airflow.
Why is the aircon leaking water?
Water from the aircon unit is released out through a drainage pipe that is run from the fan coil unit to the nearest drain. If the drainage pipe starts to leak, it is likely due to blockage of the drainage pipe.
Why is the aircon producing a foul odour?
One of the most common causes of a bad-smelling aircon is a clogged filter, which collects dust and other small particles over time. That dust accumulates inside the aircon and combines with internal moisture to create good conditions for bacterial growth.
Why is the aircon making abnormal noises?
If your aircon is making a rattling or banging sound, the most likely cause is a loose internal component or a faulty part. A loud buzzing sound is a sign that your aircon has a failed motor. In such instances, keep the unit powered off and contact our repair service immediately.
