AirCare technicians from Sharpe recently attended a major problem with a reverse-cycle air conditioner.
An internal fault with the electrics sparked a fire, which was fortunately quickly extinguished.
The following pictures show the extensive and expensive damage that a fault in your AC can quickly create.
Data from a leading insurance company suggests that air conditioning is the most likely home appliance to start a house fire. Heavy use of air conditioning for extended periods can put significant strain on your unit & your home’s electrics. Ensuring your system is working as efficiently as possible can increase both safety & savings.
How Poor AC Maintenance Affects Reliability
The effect and dust and lack of maintenance on your AC can be very significant. A poorly maintained air conditioner could use 30% more electricity than a recently serviced model. Also remember that not only is system performance greatly reduced when you don’t take care of your AC, increased strain is also put on key components like the compressor. A major compressor fault is an extremely costly repair.
Airconditioning High Electricity Bills
If your air conditioning unit hasn’t been regularly maintained, then it could cost you more than just higher electricity bills.
Daytime and night-time noise restrictions operate for air conditioners in South Australia. If a regulatory authority conducts a noise test stemming from a complaint, and your unit is above the prescribed noise level, you will be liable for the testing costs and could be fined.
Proper service, tests & repairs by Sharpe’s qualified technicians can help increase efficiency, improve safety and reduce noise pollution.
