Why Do I Need an Air Con Service?

Posted on: July 6th, 2018 by Active

Just like you have your car regularly serviced to avoid any unexpected issues, your air conditioning unit should also undergo regular maintenance to keep it working at its best. Here at Air Conditioning Direct, we discuss the importance of having your air con unit regularly serviced.

Commercial air conditioners are typically used more than domestic units and may be serviced anywhere between twice or four times a year.

If you suspect that your unit is not performing as efficiently as it once did, or giving less power, it is important that the unit undergoes maintenance to avoid a complete breakdown.


Blocked filters may not sound like a big issue, but if left, they may fail and affect the performance of the rest of the unit. What’s more, blocked filters can lead to dirt building up on the coil and fan blade which can turn into leaks if the drain outlet becomes blocked, or even cause the motor fan to fail if the fan blade becomes heavy.

Refrigerant Leaks

Another common issue that can occur if an air conditioning system isn’t properly maintained is refrigerant leaks. If this issue occurs, you will notice a vast drop in the performance of your system, eventually resulting in no air being pumped out of the system.

Regular maintenance is not only important to avoid a breakdown of your system, it may also be necessary in order to comply with your manufacturer’s warranty.
