It’s amazing what a scheduled service can uncover. Look at these reverse-cycle airconditioning filters a Sharpe Services tech discovered on a recent callout.
Regular cleaning (or replacement) of filters is an important maintenance task that will guarantee the efficiency and longevity of your airconditioner.
Filters collect contaminating particles such as dust, dirt, pollen, mould and lint, along with bacteria, hair or animal fur, and tiny specs of wood, metal and plastics.
Dirty filters are one of the leading causes of failure in any type of airconditioner. As well as raising energy consumption by up to 20 per cent, dirt and lack of regular professional servicing can dramatically shorten the system’s lifespan.
This is because a dirty filter is restricting air flow, forcing fans to work harder, slowly damaging vital components and even risking a house fire.
Build-up of dirt and grime can also cause unhealthy mould to form. You will breathe this in when you use the unit to cool or heat.
In this case, as well as sorting out the dirty filters, our Sharpe Services tech tested the system’s refrigerant level and power current draw, then checked all connections for safety and performance.
Remember, scheduled servicing is always cheaper than repairs and replacement.
So don’t only start worrying about your cooling systems when it starts playing up. Book a Sharpe scheduled service today.
