Heating and cooling account for about 50 percent of your home’s energy costs. If you’re…
Air conditioning units are not the cheapest thing you will ever buy, and nor are they cheap to run. However, if you can budget for an air conditioning unit, you shouldn’t be without one. Look upon it as an investment in the quality of your life. So, once you have shelled out for your new unit, immediate thoughts can often turn to feeling you won’t have to pay anything more for a long time. This, unfortunately, would be a mistake.
Like a car, an air conditioning unit requires regular maintenance and servicing. You don’t buy a new car and expect to drive it for 100,000 miles without any problems if you never have it serviced. If you have your AC unit regularly serviced, it will last appreciably longer, thus maximizing the value of the initial outlay, and you will also substantially reduce the running costs as well.
While regular servicing and maintenance can help you avoid most problems, faults can appear, and these need to be attended to immediately. Air conditioning is subject to what is known as the ‘domino effect’, where if one thing goes wrong and remains untreated, further problems can develop as a result, What could originally have been a small cost of a repair can very soon lead to a major, and most unwanted repair bill.
If you are new to the world of air conditioning, or have never really taken the time to understand how everything works, we would strongly recommend you give us a call here at Petrocelli Services and schedule a maintenance check. While we are there we can explain how they system works, what each element in the unit does, and what to watch out for. That way, if something does go wrong, you will understand immediately why it needs repairing without any delay.
