Air Conditioning Service Options
An air conditioner is an important piece of equipment used to achieve a comfortable microclimate in the home and office. As a rule, users like climate control equipment like to be powerful and functional, but also economical and simple to operate. Modern models cope with their tasks reliably and meet the expectations of users. The best air conditioner and operating settings can be chosen for each individual situation, whether a large building or a small private residence.
Despite this, each air conditioner must be serviced, inspected, and cleaned regularly. This is done in order to get rid of accumulated filth and prevent malfunctioning.
The following are done to service an air conditioner:
— Cleaning filters.
— Cleaning indoor and outdoor heat exchangers.
— Cleaning the outdoor unit.
— Checking and cleaning the drainage system.
— Cleaning the exterior panels of the indoor unit.
— Checking the refrigerant pressure and power lines, and equipment diagnosis.
As well as other services and technical maintenance.
Air conditioner maintenance must be conducted regularly and while adhering to a schedule, regardless whether the air conditioner is functioning without issues or whether there is a malfunction. This approach creates the basis for reliable, efficient, and uninterrupted operation of the HVAC system.
From the point of view of the servicing company, there are a couple options with regard to the air conditioner service. The first is the standard way, in which cleaning is done without the removal of the indoor unit of the air conditioning system. In this case, only some parts of the air conditioner are removed. This option is good for conditioners that were installed recently and are not very dirty, and so, don’t require full cleaning.
The second option involves removing and fully disassembling the outdoor unit, and cleaning each part separately. This option costs more as it requires recovering the refrigerant and disconnecting the refrigerant and power lines from the indoor unit. In this case, the indoor unit is fully removed and disassembled. Usually, this option is used for serious mold contamination.
However, not all air conditioners can be disassembled and assembled without damage. Cheap air conditioners manufactured in China contain low quality plastic. They are not made to be taken apart and put back together, as they have a very fragile plastic structure, similar to glass. In this case, our company’s technicians warn the customer and recommend they have service conducted using the first option, without removing the indoor unit.
The costs of conducting servicing consist of the following options:
— the cost of the inspection, cleaning, and diagnostic of the air conditioner.
— the cost of refrigerant — freon (if recharging is necessary).
— The cost of removal and installation, if the technician needs to take off the indoor unit.
The complex maintenance of air conditioners is an important task which not only improves the quality of equipment function, but also increases its lifespan. The effects can be felt right away when the air conditioning system starts functioning fully and provides a comfortable room temperature. In addition, the money you spend on energy is optimized, because an air conditioner that has not been properly maintained has to operate with a heavier load, which increases energy usage.
