Understanding Air Conditioning

What does air conditioning do?

Before we delve into why servicing your system is so important, let’s explore exactly what air conditioning is. Air conditioning is the process used to create and maintain a certain temperature, relative humidity and air purity conditions within indoor spaces. This process is typically applied to maintain a level of personal comfort, we here in the UK prefer to call it ‘Comfort Cooling’.

So if you desire more comfortable temperatures at home, or are responsible for an office, leisure centre, retail premises or another commercial environment, you’ll likely want to consider ‘Comfort Cooling’ for your home or business.

In addition to high-performance cooling capabilities, air conditioning units can:

  • Deliver a healthy and breathable indoor environment.
  • Eliminate unwanted smells and contaminants.
  • Provide ‘Reverse Cycle’ Heat Pump heating in addition to cool air.

For your AC system to work properly and to ensure its lifespan, an annual air conditioning service is recommended. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for a FREE survey and quote today!

Why It’s Important To Service Your Air Conditioning Unit

Now that you know what air conditioning is, its applications and how Chillmech can help, why is it so important to service your air conditioning unit? Here are some of the many advantages that AC system servicing can deliver to your home or commercial space…

  • Improved Efficiency

Regularly servicing your air conditioning unit ensures that your system is operating at peak efficiency. This bodes well for your energy bills as you will see considerable monetary savings and reduced utility bills.

  • Extended Lifespan

Air conditioning is built to be long-lasting, as long as required maintenance, such as servicing, is undertaken. Regular servicing can extend the life of your AC system, protecting your investment in the long term.

  • Prevents Breakdowns

Our engineers will complete thorough inspections and tests on your air conditioning unit. These tests will identify any potential issues before they become major – and more expensive, problems in the future.

  • Cooling AND Heating!

Did you know that fully functioning air conditioning systems can heat rooms as well as cool them? By simply reversing the operation of the Refrigeration system you can keep your home cool in the summer and warmer throughout the winter too.

  • Better Air Quality

When it has been serviced and is fully functioning, your AC system is great at improving air quality. By filtering out ‘dirty’ air your air conditioning system works hard to replace it with clean, fresh air. This means that you’ll be cooler and able to breathe more easily.

  • Reduces Health Issues

When functioning air conditioning provides better quality air, it can lower the risk of triggering health problems such as asthma. With toxins, dust and debris removed from your property, this is a great benefit for those with health problems and allergy sufferers alike.

  • Increased Productivity

Commercial areas can benefit from AC servicing by creating a comfortable working environment for your employees. When employees are comfortable, they will likely be more productive, whether in an office, warehouse or factory.

  • Environmental Benefits

When air conditioning is functioning as it should, it can contribute to lower energy consumption. This lower energy consumption will reduce your carbon footprint – a great benefit to the environment.

  • Consistent Comfortable Temperatures

Servicing your air conditioning unit ensures that you enjoy consistently comfortable temperatures in your home or commercial space. See inconsistent cooling and heating become things of the past with regular AC servicing.

  • Maintain Your Warranty

Your air conditioning unit likely comes with a warranty, and servicing it is often a warranty requirement. Ensure that you preserve your warranty coverage and protect your investment with AC system servicing.

  • Peace of Mind

Regularly servicing your air conditioning unit provides you with peace of mind that your system is functioning as it should. What’s more, you can enjoy hassle-free cooling and heating throughout the year.
