FAQ About Syndmarc Refrigeration & Airconditioning & Allied Services
Changing the filter when it becomes clogged is arguably the most important HVAC maintenance task. This maintains adequate airflow so the AC doesn’t overheat. It also helps cooled air circulate efficiently to keep your utility bills down.
Standard air filters should be checked once a month and replaced after no more than three months. High-efficiency filters may last up to a year, and some filters can be washed and reused.
Replacing the filter is only one part of maintaining your AC unit. While you can complete this yourself, most maintenance tasks should be left to a professional with the proper tools, experience, and know-how to tune up your cooling system effectively.
- Checking the refrigerant charge
- Inspecting and cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils
- Checking and tightening all electrical connections
- Inspecting the relays for wear and tear
- Cleaning the drain line and condensate pump
- Checking system airflow
- Balancing and cleaning the blower wheel
- Checking the ductwork for leaks or damage
We recommend maintaining your air conditioner once or twice a year. It’s easy to skip these tune-ups, but once you realize the benefits that await you, you’ll never miss another visit. Here’s what you stand to gain:
- Lower energy bills
- Fewer mid-season breakdowns
- Reduced air conditioner repair bills
- Extended equipment lifespan
- Improved home comfort and indoor air quality
- Peace of mind
Every 3 to 4 months
The frequency of cleaning depends on various factors such as usage, the environment, and the unit type. As a rule of thumb, we recommend availing an aircon cleaning service every 3 to 4 months for residential units. For AC units used in businesses, aircon cleaning should be done at least every 3 months.
