Avoid Ducting Disasters
Question 1: As the temperature gets towards 30 degrees C I’m thinking about getting my evaporative cooler fired up again. Any advice?
Answer: Don’t open it up for summer before making sure it’s up to the job. Here’s what we found recently. Filter pads were falling apart through a
combination of age & windy weather. Because the units are high up on the roof, many homeowners don’t put servicing on their “to-do” list. This can lead to other issues, including increased running costs and even a fire risk.
Q2: Fire? Please tell me more.
A: Every summer fire authorities stress the importance of regular servicing of household cooling systems. They warn that if a rooftop unit starts a fire, it is likely to take hold long before residents below become aware. They also say that rental tenants should ask the property owner or manager to arrange servicing. Another possible issue is that older systems could be subject to component recall or rectification.
Q3: So would a Sharpe Group technician be able to sort this out?
A: Certainly. Our check-and-test schedule covers all operating aspects of your evap, plus a system flush. We have years of experience and the best products on hand.
Q4: What are some prices for pads?
A: Sharpe Group can supply and fit replacement Aspen filters from $495. Celdek pads, considered the most efficient filter around, start from $748 supplied and installed.
