You’re all set up with your air con unit so now you can just ignore it and let it get on with the job, right? Actually, wrong. It’s vital to keep on top of servicing and maintaining your air con unit to keep it working efficiently – which in turn will save you money.
LOW MAINTENANCE, HIGH ENERGY BILLS
According to efficiency experts, air con units that aren’t serviced or regularly maintained eat up more electricity. For example, a clogged-up filter is thought to increase energy usage by 5%-15% – that’s bad news for your utility bills (and not great for the planet, either).
AIR CON OUT OF ORDER
Failing to keep up with air con servicing and maintenance could affect productivity. Imagine the scene: it’s the hottest day of the year and suddenly your air con stops working. Staff are left sweltering and barely able to work while you desperately call up for repairs. It’s not a good picture, is it?
PROTECTING YOUR WARRANTY
Without regular checks, your air con unit could be struggling to work at it best and as a result could need replacing sooner rather than later. And if you ignore your air con unit and it breaks down, you’ll obviously need to get it repaired – but if it hasn’t been routinely maintained and serviced your warranty may not cover you.
SAY HELLO TO BACTERIA
Noticing a funny smell in your workplace? Bacteria will have a field day with dirty drip trays and coils and it won’t be long before the stale odour becomes obvious either. Regular maintenance will keep your air con’s components clean and pong-free.
So don’t overlook servicing and maintaining your air con. It’s a false economy that could leave you with an inefficient unit, higher energy bills – and some very hot and unhappy staff.
