Air Conditioning Routine Maintenance. Why Service Air Conditioners?

Firstly, air conditioners/heat pumps will get dirty as you use them on a regular basis

  1. SAVE ON YOUR POWER BILL

Maintenance and servicing a dirty air conditioner/heat pump can save you up to 30% power usage for that unit.

A dirty coil means the unit has to work harder to cool the air because there is much “less clean” surface area for the hot air to pass over. If the blower fan (drum) is covered in dirt and grime – air velocity decreases dramatically and so you are tempted to turn up the fan speed and turn down the temperature in order to cool the room down. This of course is going to use more power! When we clean your blower fan we normally more than double the volume of air off it. This means that you don’t have to have the fan motor working nearly as hard.

CLEANED & MAINTAINED AIR CONDITIONERS/HEAT PUMPS – MEANS LESS POWER USAGE AND COOLER AIR!

  1. MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION

The second reason is especially significant to allergy suffers, children and the sick. All air conditioners, after regular usage, become infected with “microbial contamination” – This contamination includes fungi, mould and bacteria. Air Conditioners/Heat Pumps are the perfect environment for such contaminants and of course, become constantly airborne every time you switch your air conditioner on. Mould combined with humidity can be a potent mix!!!

CORRECTLY CLEANED & MAINTAINED AIR CONDITIONERS/HEAT PUMPS MEANS VIRTUAL ERADICATION OF MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION AND CLEANER AIR!

  1. YOUR AIR CONDITIONER WILL LAST LONGER

A regularly serviced air conditioner will last a lot longer than one that never gets serviced. For example, if you purchased a new car and never serviced it (changed the oil/air cleaner etc) it may last 5 or so years if that! Your air conditioner is no different. The only reason you wouldn’t service it, is if you never used it!!!

  1. PREVENTABLE PROBLEMS

Some companies specialise in ONLY cleaning systems. We at Reefcosa also check your system is mechanically & electrically sound and ensure your refrigerant pressures are correct. For your wallet & the environment, this is possibly the most important single task we carry out on our visits.

In summary – consumers are generally not made aware of the above and so are under the belief that cleaning your filters is enough. Cleaning your filters is “simple maintenance”. After regular usage the whole head unit also needs to be “CORRECTLY CLEANED” and Serviced, as well as having mechanical & electrical checks carried out.

So we carry out the works, depending on the inspection option you select (see below or attached) and report on any issues found. Works outside of the above will incur additional charges. “Check” means check, if additional works are required to be carried out, we’ll include in the report pricing of additional works necessary. No further works will take place without your approval.

We offer three packages you can choose from to suit your individual requirements:

  1. Basic service – Split system A/C (bare minimum inspection)
  2. Thorough service and clean service – Split System A/C (Recommended for systems that have been regularly maintained)   
  3. Premium Sanitisation Service *Recommended for systems that have not been serviced in 2 years or for asthma sufferers, elderly or medical centres etc.
