Servicing is extremely important in the efficient running of anything electrical or indeed mechanical. Computers need memory erasing or formatting to enable it to run faster and smoother, cars and motorcycles need servicing / tuning to again make it run smoother and more efficient as do air conditioning units. A well serviced Air Conditioning unit not only runs better ( Heating quicker or cooling quicker ) but it in turn reduces its operating / running costs significantly, sometimes up to several hundred pounds annually so it’s very important to get it serviced regularly.
Typically with a Air conditioning system service we would carry out the following:
Check the coolant pressure ( ensuring that the equipment is operating at its most efficient )
Check and clean the condenser coil ( again ensuring that the equipment is operating at its most efficient )
Checking that the evaporator coil is clean ( once more ensuring that the equipment is operating at its most efficient )
Checking and tightening ( where appropriate ) all wiring, final connections, relays, capacitors and so forth to minimise any chance of intermediate faults and thus saving you more money on additional call out costs.
Ensuring and cleaning where appropriate the condensate drain to avoid damage to the fabric of the building due to
Check the compressor for both operation and overheating.
Inspect the condenser fan motor and fan blades for signs of wear or damage
Additional inspections of pipe work for damage, pipe lagging for missing or damaged lagging etc.
