Refrigerated Air Conditioning
Providing you regularly clean your return air filter, a domestic refrigerated system should normally only need one annual check-up. Systems in commercial and business applications might need up to four service visits a year plus additional checks to ensure that the filters are working efficiently. With well cared for filters and regular services, refrigerated air conditioning should only need the smallest amount of maintenance.
Issues with Refrigerated Systems
Regardless whether you have a room air conditioner or a ducted system, the vital thing is to ensure that the filters in refrigerated systems are always kept clean. Where the outside unit is placed can also seriously affect the system’s lifespan and may require repairs.
Parts that may Need Attention Include:
- The filters or filter media
- The refrigerant gas
- The motors and/or compressors (in the instance of major failure)
- The electronics (in the event of a power surge)
High quality refrigerated air conditioning has a very long lifespan providing it is properly looked after and maintained. The majority of reputable branded air conditioners have a five year parts and labour warranty or, in the event that a system has ducting, it may come with a ten year warranty.
Whichever form of air conditioning you choose, scheduling regular maintenance appointments with a specialist company like Ford & Doonan is essential if you want to keep your system running at its prime and perfectly controlling the climate in your home or work place.
