Air Conditioning Services: A Beginner’s Short Manual

Anyone who is fortunate enough to have an air conditioner must never take such a device for granted. Just because it is cheap an absolutely necessary during the hot months, this does not give you the allowance to neglect taking it in for routine servicing and timeous repairs. Air conditioning services must be selected with the following in mind.

When a company speaks of having been in business for more than 10 years, don’t take it as puffery and an ‘over the top’ way of extolling the good features of a particular service. It is a confident expression of the workmanship that you ought to expect, and legally, it is allowed, that is, if the bite turns out to be as any good as the bark. However, these days phrases like ‘enviable’, ‘service par-excellence’, ‘outstanding’ and other catch phrases employed by marketers are not as dependable as proof of certification. It is generally expected of providers of air conditioning services to have on their premises –or in rare instances, on their person- proof of standardization compliance with regulatory laws in the particular district. This should serve as face value proof in a court of law or a complaints tribunal in the event that repairs turn out to be faulty and the direct or indirect cause of ensuing damage to property.

What To Expect, Generally Speaking

A lot of people wonder what really goes into servicing and routine maintenance. Well, what takes place is a coming together of a whole bunch of specialist areas:

  • Quick repairs to all brands
  • Alterations to existing systems
  • Removal of old equipment when it is damaged beyond repair
  • The sale of equipment
  • Regular preventative maintenance
  • The measuring of air quality, i.e whether your air conditioner is performing properly
  • Duct cleaning
  • Cleaning of the cooling tower
  • Cooler maintenance
  • Maintenance Agreements

It therefore makes sense to sacrifice money on services that will surely benefit you in the long run, than to procrastinate and on repairs that will cost you a fortune down the line.
