Budget. Budget. Budget. Isn’t this the number one reason why we choose to cut short the list of our expenses every day? Sometimes, even the need items in our expense list have to be sacrificed because budget is too tight. We have to be careful though in identifying what we need and what can be sacrificed, because if we’re not careful enough, we might put our family’s safety at risk.
One such item in our expenses is air conditioner repair and maintenance. We often think that that’s another aspect of housekeeping that can wait or that can be delayed. We even think that it can be sacrificed altogether. But today, we are going to give you a few good reasons why you have to do proper maintenance for your air conditioning unit.
Protects you from heat-related diseases
As we all know, heat and humidity are the major key players in the Singaporean weather. In fact, all throughout the year, people in the country experience hot and humid weather for a large portion of the day. For this reason, air conditioning system has become a commodity for most residential, commercial, and industrial properties.
Without air conditioning unit, you will feel the irritating coastal weather when you’re at home or inside the office building. In line with this prevailing weather condition in Singapore, you can get some heat-related diseases and health conditions if you don’t protect yourself. Heat stroke tops that list of diseases and health conditions. In fact, 15% of deaths caused by heat stroke all around the world are from Singapore.
Proper ventilation and efficient cooling units inside our house and office buildings will be helpful in reducing such deaths. Our air conditioners can only remain efficient if we maintain and fix them with the help of aircon repair Singapore contractors who know every detail about the job. If we don’t do this, we can’t expect our cooling systems to work as they should.
Reduces cooling costs
Another reason for hiring professionals to inspect, repair, and maintain our cooling units is because a defective A/C also means more electricity required to be consumed to cool down a space. Let’s take for example an air conditioning unit that is badly in need of a chemical wash.
If you don’t do a chemical wash on this unit, chances are, the dirt inside your air conditioner will make it hard for your cooling appliance to work as it should. With these impurities, blocking the filter and other parts of your A/C, your unit would need to exert more effort, consuming much more electricity in the process, only to cool down your home or business space.
Malfunctioning parts inside your cooling system will also make it hard for the A/C to release the hot air outside or even to circulate cool air inside the room where it is located. A dust-filled filter, on the other hand, will block the passage of air to your house. All these problems can only be identified and resolved by capable and experienced air conditioning repair contractors.
