Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning Services
We offer cost-friendly service agreements that will ensure your heat pump, high wall, ducted, and other air con systems are operating at their best, cutting down on the cost and inconvenience of breakdowns and repairs in the future.
Regular maintenance is a must to meet manufacturer efficiency specs on your heating and cooling systems. You may not even be able to validate your system warranty -should a repair be necessary- without proof of regular maintenance to ensure upkeep.
Sometimes breakdowns or faults will occur at a bad time like the hottest part of summer or the coldest part of winter when you don’t want to wait. Our contract customers can expect a priority response. For non-contract service calls, we’ll do our best.
To take advantage of all the benefits your heat pump offers, you need to give your system regular attention. This isn’t an overwhelming job. It just needs to be consistent.
Regular cleaning and maintenance will help extend the life span of a heat pump split air conditioner. In general, this type of air conditioner will last for 12 to 15 years.
However, depending on weather conditions and humidity levels in your locality, the system may last even longer. If you want your air conditioner to run at its best for years, clean the filters and coils regularly. Regular cleaning will help prevent clogging and ensure unobstructed airflow.
Commercial Ducted Systems offer great convenience, but have their maintenance challenges.
Maintenance of ducted systems needs to occur on a similar calendar as maintaining standard air conditioning systems. This should occur four quarters a year to maintain system efficiency and indoor air quality. However, many challenges exist to properly cleaning and maintaining ducted systems. The size of coils, installation area and location above ground all offer challenges.
The ducted system will likely produce some condensation during operation, so make sure there’s a proper condensation drainage. Otherwise, the water could leak back into your building and cause damage.
Keeping coils clean from dirt and debris is one of the most important things in a preventative maintenance program. Keeping them free of biological growth is even more important.
When coils become dirty with dust and grime, it can limit the air flow through the coils. In an HVAC system, this airflow is where the most dynamic heat exchange occurs. In other words, without proper air flow, your system works harder and in many cases will only work until it burns itself out.
Dirt, dust, and debris can also be the perfect environment for bacteria, mold, and mildew to grow. Not only does this cause possible health problems by increasing the mold spores circulating through you indoor air, but it can also increase your electricity bills. When dirt and debris limit air flow, and you add mold and mildew to the equation, many times the coils begin to develop a biofilm. This biofilm creates a barrier on your coils whereby they can;t exchange heat as efficiently as they used to.
