Here are 8 reasons to ensure you have an on-call aircon specialist.
A functional or well-maintained aircon is essential for any Australian home. An aircon makes the house comfortable, especially when the weather gets too hot. The Australian climate can go to extremes, and the word ‘warm’ can be an understatement. That is why it is essential that the unit is always well-maintained and is in its best condition to work.
However, as the unit ages, it will encounter problems and hiccups along the way. The bad part is there is no telling when problems may occur. Therefore, regular maintenance is encouraged so that problems can be detected even before they get out of hand.
Should problems occur, homeowners must seek the services of reliable aircon technicians. Having the issues resolved as soon as possible minimises the risks of more serious problems. A reliable air conditioning service provider should be available round the clock. A 24/7 service ensures that customers do not have to wait until office hours to call in for problems that need urgent attention.
8 reasons you need a reliable emergency air conditioning specialist
Here are some good reasons why air conditioning service providers should offer 24/7 services.
1. Emergencies do happen.
No one can dictate nor predict when a problem with an aircon unit will occur. A problem can arise during the most inopportune moments – in the middle of the night or during a hot summer weekend.
Comfort is vital in every home and family. Having someone to call round-the-clock is crucial when the AC unit bugs down and needs to be checked by a professional. Often, having to wait until the weekend or holiday break is over to have someone check the unit may already be too late.
2. Some problems need urgent attention.
Some issues with the AC unit need urgent attention. They not only bring problems to the unit but also pose risks to the occupants of the house.
One problem that should be dealt with immediately is refrigerant leaks. A leak in refrigerant can result in the unit losing its cooling power. Because of this, the unit works harder to cool the room, undergoing too much strain. Overworking the unit can lead to system damage.
Moreover, refrigerant is hazardous and should be handled with extreme care. Therefore, calling a trusted air conditioning professional immediately if the unit is leaking refrigerant is critical.
3. Some problems can lead to permanent damage.
Imagine discovering the problem on a Saturday and having to wait for Monday to have someone check the unit. Or the problem arises on a holiday, but it’s a long holiday week. Thus, the homeowner has to wait until the next working day to be attended to. Of course, the problem would have significantly worsened by then.
Some issues, if left unattended, can lead to permanent unit damage. For instance, frozen evaporator coils can be permanently damaged if insufficient airflow is left unfixed.
4. The homeowner has a busy workweek schedule.
Many homeowners are busy professionals. They work straight from Monday to Friday, from the early hours of the morning until night-time. So understandably, they would only be available on weekends to have someone come over and check their malfunctioning units.
These busy homeowners will prefer a service provider who can cater to them at their preferred time of visit. Whether for maintenance, an emergency repair, or a check-up, a service provider that is available 24/7 will be a great help.
5. There is a baby or a sick person in the household.
A baby will not understand what happened with the air conditioning unit. All the baby knows is that it is suddenly too warm in the room. He will fuss, he will cry, and, if it’s in the middle of the night, he will not let anyone in the house get a good night’s sleep. If he is not sleeping, then no one else will.
On the other hand, a sick person should not be stressed and must be comfortable. If the aircon unit suddenly goes bonkers, it may affect the recovery of the ill family member.
6. The faster the remedy, the more money is saved.
Having the problems fixed means avoiding more costly problems, but this is not where the savings end. As mentioned above, if there is a sick member of the household, a non-working AC unit can affect his comfort and recovery.
Another thing is that when the AC unit is not working, the household tends to open all the windows. Opening all the windows can let in allergens and dust particles, which can cause respiratory allergies and illnesses.
One option when the AC unit is not working is to check in to the nearest hotel. Unfortunately, this means spending more on comfort because the unit is not yet fixed.
7. They can work around the family schedule.
Aside from work, some families may have some activities planned for their week. A service provider available 24/7 lets the family go on with its plans while still being able to schedule a site visit or repair. There will be no need to cancel that visit to the paediatrician or the child’s sports clinic because their technicians are available, even beyond office hours.
8. Safety and comfort cannot wait.
No one wants to be stuck in a house as hot as an oven. But driving out in the middle of the night for a place to stay is not safe either.
The same is true for business owners. No one wants to stay in a business establishment that is too warm for comfort.
Call the reliable technicians at Coles as soon as the AC unit shows signs of problems. They will come to the site to check on the unit and fix the issue as quickly as possible.
