Spring is service season – with increased demand occurring at this time of year for household electrical, plumbing, heating-cooling and solar.
With reliable warmer weather upon us, households are thinking about activating their cooling systems and looking forward to maximum solar gains from their rooftop panels.
This is a good time to make sure your solar, evaporative and air-conditioners are working at peak efficiency, which will save you money in running and repair costs.
Sharpe Group offers a complete range of service packages.
For example, if you have recently moved into a house with an existing solar rooftop array, our Solar Safe System Service verifies the system is operating at peak efficiency and that all electrical connections meet industry standards.
Our solar inspection and testing also includes a free clean of up to 20 panels!
A build-up of winter dirt and early spring pollen can reduce a panel’s efficiency by up to 30 per cent.
Another consideration is the possibility of upgrading to micro-inverter technology.
This allows solar panels to operate independently of each other so that if one is in shade or develops a fault, it will not affect the others. Our fully-qualified technicians can advise on this and other issues while they are servicing your system.
Air-conditioners are an important part of many households’ summer comfort and also need regular servicing.
A poorly maintained air-conditioner can eat up 25 per cent or more electricity than a recently serviced model.
Not only is the system’s performance greatly reduced but increased strain is put on key components like the compressor, which is a costly item to repair.
Spring is also the time households should be arranging the opening up of their evaporative cooling systems – service.
These pump-and-fan systems require regular lubrication, adjustment and checking for electrical safety. As well filters and pads need to be cleaned or replaced and the water reservoir flushed and refilled.
We have a range of maintenance package offers spanning all our areas of expertise.
