  • Is there a difference between the maintenance for split system air conditioners vs ducted?

    Maintenance for split system air conditioners and ducted air conditioning systems differ. Split systems have indoor and outdoor units; you need to clean or replace filters for better airflow and keep the indoor unit clean, as well as clear the outdoor unit of debris and clean the condenser coil. Ducted systems have central units and duct networks; you should check ducts for leaks, balance airflow to different areas, and clean vents. Also, we need to ensure the thermostat is accurate.

  • Is the heating and cooling affected is your AC isn't properly maintained?

    Your AC might not cool your space effectively because dirt can build up on its coils, making it work harder and use more energy. This could also lead to higher electricity bills. Neglecting maintenance can make your AC wear out faster and break down more often, causing discomfort. Additionally, your indoor air quality could worsen due to accumulated contaminants. Regular servicing, like changing filters, cleaning coils, and checking components, can prevent these issues and keep your AC running smoothly.

  • Does commercial air conditioning require more servicing?

    Commercial air conditioning systems need more servicing than residential ones. This is because they are used in bigger spaces with higher occupancy, which strains the system more. Commercial systems are also more complex, with different zones and stricter regulations to follow. They run in various types of spaces like offices and warehouses, each needing specific care. Since businesses rely on them, regular servicing prevents disruptions and ensures they work properly.

  • When is my first service due after my air conditioner installation?

    It’s best to refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines, but in most cases, you should hire an experienced air solutions technician to service your newly installed AC unit after six months of use.

  • Are the maintenance costs different for each brand of air conditioner?

    No, we charge a flat rate for service and maintenance. Repair costs are different, but in most cases, your unit will be under warranty for 5 years.
