Did you know that running your Air Conditioner this summer without regular service and safety checks places your family in danger?
Reverse Cycle A/C needs regular servicing to ensure all components are safely and efficiently running within factory specifications.
The Air Conditioning unit pictured (not serviced for 5 years) is a recent snap of a burnt-out Reverse Cycle A/C unit taken by one of our technicians. A seasonal inspection by our accredited ARCtick A/C technician would have found the compressor failure, crushed cable, and burnt connection.
The hard-working A/C systems you rely on to keep you warm in winter and cool during heatwaves, are the most frequent source of appliance or house fires. This statement is backed up by National Fire Authority and Australian Insurance Council 2018 Data. Heavy and lengthy use of A/C will put significant strain on your unit and home electrics. In 2020, the Metropolitan Fire Service reported a $2.5m fire damage due to poorly maintained and faulty A/C systems.
Remember, A/C systems rely on a certain rate of airflow to operate. Clogged filters stress the system, gobbling up more energy and money to run. Internal build-up and poor maintenance cause components to fail, units to break down, and electricals to overload, ultimately causing a blow-up.
Compressor and fan inspections are integral parts of Reverse Cycle A/C Service and Safety Check. With heatwave and prolonged use, ensuring that your system will operate efficiently and safely can save you more than just electricity.
