Air-con Servicing

Are you still thinking about when to service the aircon? Singapore’s warm and humid climate means having an air-conditioned environment to ensure a certain level of comfort for the human body, especially on days when the temperature soars. Thus, it is common to find places like offices, shopping malls, transport systems, and even homes equipped with air-con units. You are working under a cooler temperature has merits, like better mental alertness and higher productivity, without the energy-draining aspect associated with working under sweltering heat. Aircon servicing is needed and a part of life for Singaporeans.

For Singaporeans too dependent on air-con, it would be dreadful to be in places with malfunctioning air-conditioners. Workers’ productivity and retail / F&B companies’ profits will plunge. Many at home cannot have a good night’s sleep if the weather proves too warm.

As air-cons circulate the air within the room, it is essential to ensure clean air in circulation. There may be harmful bacteria and fungus growing in the air-con fan coil units. Dirty air carries undesirable bacterial content, which is dangerous when breathed in. 

The absence of open windows in confined spaces aggravates this situation. Young children, including asthmatic people, are susceptible to unclean air. They may develop allergy symptoms and fall sick if they stay in an air-conditioned room for prolonged periods. 

Quite frequently, a stale or foul smell may be emitted as contaminants get sucked in and flow out with the airflow. Air-cons not serviced regularly will not function at the manufacturer’s recommended conditions (for example, not cold enough as per the thermostat setting) and hence will lose their cooling effectiveness. 

Noise and vibration may also arise. Air-con leakage can occur due to a blocked drainage system as dust particles collect on the fan coils and choke the drainage. All these will eventually lead to excessive consumption of electricity, not to mention end users’ unhappiness.

Therefore, it is prudent always to keep our air-con units in tip-top conditions. This calls for a regular maintenance regime. 

Air-con servicing provided by professional air-con servicing companies comes in varying degrees, depending on the makes of air-con used, the usage levels of the end users, and other environmental factors. The basic ones involve:

  • Vacuuming away the accumulated dust.
  • Removing and cleaning the filters.
  • Cleaning the condenser unit, evaporator coils, blowers wheel, fan blades, the drain pan.
  • Flushing the drain pipe.
  • Checking for noise problems, the refrigeration system, and electrical components.

Many servicing companies also provide chemical cleaning for the air-con units, like chemical cleansing of the evaporator coils, which helps to remove stubborn grease and stains that cannot be easily removed by general cleaning. At the same time, the technicians will also check for any damages, such as those caused by air-con gas leakage, and make sure all parts are functioning correctly. 

In overhaul cleaning, the air-con parts are dismantled and chemically washed to rid any blockages or bacterial presence. Additionally, the air-con gas is replenished. Generally, it is recommended to service residential air-con units once every three months and once per month for industrial users.

A well-servicing air-con unit works at its optimal operating condition, saves electricity bills, provides a clean and healthy living environment that smells fresher, and minimizes the need for parts replacement to repair. The lifespan of the air-con unit can also be extended. Regular maintenance is undoubtedly the best way to prevent any problems from arising and ensure a consistent flow of cool, clean air to all.
