AC Maintenance at Elephant Castle
Servicing is so important to make sure your #heatpump#ac unit is running efficiently. Especially at this time of year.
Blocked filters can reduce efficiency by
We were off to Air Conditioning Elephant and Castle today. It is one of London’s famous boroughs and was cited by Antonio in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. He says, “In the south suburbs, at the Elephant, is best to lodge.” Apparently, Shakespeare would often reference London in his plays possibly because the theatres were in Southwark within this general area. Perhaps “The Elephant” paid him commission for getting punters through the door!
Our job today was a maintenance task to assure an air conditioning system. Without maintenance an air conditioning system can reduce significantly in efficiency which causes an increase in energy usage as well as causing potential harm to components. The performance of the system declines and if neglected for too long, it can break down completely.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Elephant And Castle
Regular maintenance is essential on the filters, fins, and coils for the unit to keep efficiently functioning. One most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of the air conditioning unit is routine maintenance of the filter or replacement. A clogged or dirty filter can reduce airflow and will allow dirty air to bypass the filter into the coils preventing heat absorbing capacity. The filter was blocked quite badly at this location by 50%! No wonder there were issues. Bearing in mind this system is in a gym, it is under permanent pressure, so it is important the filter is changed every couple of months.
The evaporator coil and condenser coil during months and years of service accumulate dirt and will be cleaned as part of regular maintenance. There are coils outdoors also which gather dirt. This is especially so if there is debris and foliage nearby or just everyday pollution. It is important to keep the area around the unit clear.
Our maintenance programme will give you peace of mind and include checks for the correct amount of refrigerant , leaks, seal checks, airflow measurements, controllers, replacement of filters, cleaning and checks for accuracy and efficiency of system.
