Busting Myths: It’s not ageing

It’s summer, humidity is on the rise and you’ve spent a large portion of the day outside so you’re looking forward to that moment when you walk into the house and turn the AC on.

But it doesn’t seem to be cooling. 

In a situation such as this, one would assume the machine is now faulty and begin their market research to replace the model, thus paying thousands of dirhams due to a misconception: It’s old, so it must be malfunctioning. 

Let’s bust that myth, shall we? It isn’t malfunctioning. 

Simply explained, like a vacuum cleaner sucks in dust particles, an AC unit attracts external dust and debris. With that creating a detrimental layer of filth within the unit, the filters are now congested. As the unit turns on to offer cooling, it is now emitting dust particles, visible or not, within the space. A well-functioning and clean unit helps dehumidify the room it operates in. 

An annual tune up of the air conditioning unit is basically offering a head start on efficient and powerful performance during the country’s challenging summer weather. Bear in mind that if the unit does require part replacement, this would fall under the product warranty. Unfortunately, this is void if the unit is serviced and/or inspected by technicians that aren’t certified HVAC professionals. A valid warranty and a professional unit tune up, it’s a win-win, isn’t it?  

It has been studied that missing out on regular maintenance and servicing can reduce the life expectancy of the unit by 5% which means it has begun depreciating its performance and not offering you the cooling you’d expect, especially in the hotter months. 

We’re here to assure you that an ageing model does not require a replacement, it needs an inspection and servicing annually. The importance of servicing is two-fold, as explained below:

  • Cost Effectiveness: The inspections save on electricity bills as they ensure energy efficiency which provide you with a long-term, functioning unit
  • Peace of Mind: This is quite important. Dust particles collected within the AC unit can contribute to an unhealthy air quality which results in medical issues. For peace of mind regarding air quality within the space, regular servicing is the answer. 

Additionally, regular servicing will help eliminate larger issues with the unit in the future. With an annual inspection and unit maintenance, problems that may have begun formulating can be detected and remedied early on, saving you a larger cost down the line. This means, you’re looking at increased performance because our highly-trained technicians have helped you recover lost efficiency.
