While many people are happy to make the investment into installing an air-conditioning unit in Singapore, many fail to make the right investment into maintaining it properly. Like a vehicle, air conditioning units have a lot of moving parts and they need to be maintained in order for them to function properly. To get the best out of your air conditioning unit in Singapore for years to come, you need to maintain it and herein we explore the five main reasons why servicing is important.
1 – Lower running costs
Very simply, an air conditioning unit will cost less to run when it is in good condition. When the unit is running properly and is correctly insulated it will cost less to cool your property because it will be more effective. Regular maintenance and cleaning will also help to prevent the need for major repairs and replacements that will massively increase your running costs.
2 – Healthy air
An air conditioning unit does more than keep your home cool and it will also help to improve the air quality in your home. By pushing the air through filters before it enters into your home the dirt and bacteria will be removed before you breathe it in. You will need to get the filters cleaned and maintained to stop them from developing mould and spreading bacteria, however.
3 – Prolonging life-span
A well-maintained air conditioning unit will last longer and they can keep running effectively for 10 years or more when they are properly maintained. When the installation costs of a new air conditioning unit are taken into account the maintenance costs to keep your unit running are tiny in comparison. Making a regular investment into prolonging the life of your unit will save you a great deal in the long run.
4 – Efficient running
A well-maintained unit will run more efficiently and studies have shown that they can become as much as 20% less efficient when they are not cleaned and maintained. Aside from the increased electricity costs of running a machine that is so much less efficient, this will also put more strain on the parts of the air conditioning unit as they will have to work harder to achieve the same result. All of this will combine to reduce the life-span of your air conditioning unit and drive your costs through the roof.
5 – Fewer and cheaper emergency repairs
All air conditioning units will need to undergo emergency repairs at one time or another, but a well-maintained unit will need to undergo fewer and they will be likely to be far cheaper. In the heavy months on usage during the summer repairs can be costly, but a well-maintained unit will often remain within warranty for longer and this can save you when repairs are needed. When you have your unit installed you should check the warranty conditions, which will often be extended if you have had a maintenance check carried out within a particular window of time.
Investing in the maintenance of your air conditioning unit in Singapore is essential in reducing your costs and ensuring that you are able to get the best from your unit. A well-maintained unit will be more efficient, cheaper to run and more effective at cooling your home too.
