During summers in the UAE, your AC or HVAC unit often becomes your most heavily used appliance, be it at home or the office. It is next to impossible to imagine life without an AC in Dubai, UAE. Being such an indispensable appliance, investing in regular and high-quality AC maintenance should be high on your to-do list. While there are umpteen benefits of regularly maintaining and servicing your AC/HVAC unit, you should also know how often this needs to be done.
When to get your AC Serviced?
Your AC or HVAC unit has several components that require regular maintenance during the peak of summers in Dubai. During the hotter months, it is advisable to clean the filters of your AC every 60 days. When it comes to full service, we recommend you do this once every year, preferably just at the dawn of summer.
Benefits of Regular AC Maintenance
1. Enhance Energy Efficiency
One of the most popular reasons people regularly service their ACs is to maintain their energy efficiency. This is because, with prolonged usage, your AC can accumulate dust, dirt, and even minute debris capable of obstructing airflow. Over time, this can reduce the cooling capacity of your AC. So, when you opt for regular maintenance, you not only increase its energy efficiency but also reduce your power consumption.
2. Lengthen Equipment Lifespans
Purchasing and owning an AC is quite an investment. So naturally, you would want to make the most of your hard-earned money and ensure that your AC has a long lifespan. If you regularly maintain your AC you can identify monitor issues early on. This can save you from the sudden costs of repair or even replacement. So, by avoiding premature decommissioning of your AC or HVAC unit, you can effectively lengthen its lifespan and, in the process, save money.
3. Keep Safe from Germs
An AC that is serviced and maintained regularly leaves no room for bacteria and other germs to multiply. Since your AC or HVAC unit can accumulate moisture over a few years of usage, your machine is likely harbouring harmful germs. A deep-clean AC service can eliminate these health hazards and keep you both cool and safe during the summer months.
4. Enhance AC Resale Value
Another important reason you must regularly maintain your AC is to enhance its resale value. When you try to sell your AC or HVAC unit for any reason, your potential buyer will want a copy of its service record. If your service record is impeccable and has no lapses, then the resale value of your AC can often rise higher than expected.
5. Keep Comfortable in Summers
The main purpose of an AC or HVAC unit is to maintain comfortable temperatures indoors. But without timely maintenance and servicing, you may no longer enjoy the same level of comfort when indoors. With a well-maintained AC or HVAC unit, you can essentially forget about waiting for the AC to cool your room.
6. Purify Air Quality
Yet another health benefit of regularly maintaining your AC is that you will be able to breathe better quality air inside your room. Since AC filters are notorious for accumulating dust, pollen, and other allergens over time, it is best to have a periodic filter cleaning schedule for your AC. In this way, you and your family (or colleagues) can remain free of respiratory ailments.
7. Reduce Humidity Indoors
One of the many underrated benefits of cleaning your AC components during regular maintenance is indoor humidity. With a clean and high-performing AC that is maintained regularly, you will notice lower levels of indoor humidity. This is beneficial because it can keep the growth of mould and mildew at bay. As a result, you can forget about the foul-smelling odour created by mould inside your room.
8. Add-on System Upgrades
If you think your AC is underperforming, there may be various reasons for it. One reason could be the need for an add-on system upgrade. Most ACs available in Dubai have such a facility for adding programmable thermostats, better insulation, or even highly optimised ductwork. When you schedule your AC for regular maintenance and servicing, your highly experienced technician will be able to identify any current and future needs for add-on system upgrades that can further optimise the performance of your AC or HVAC unit.
9. Clear Out Unwanted Pests
Split and Window ACs and commercial HVAC units can often become cosy shelters and breeding grounds for household pests. These animals like rodents and insects often nest inside the outdoor units of your Split AC as well as within the outer frame of your Window AC. But more often, they are found nesting within the ductwork of commercial HVAC units. With regular maintenance and servicing, you can ensure that no such unwanted creatures make your AC their home. In this way, you can rest assured that you will remain protected from diseases spread by these pests.
10. Eliminate Extra Noise
Finally, with regular servicing and maintenance of your AC or HVAC unit, you will notice that it does not get noisier as it gets older. When expert technicians take care of regular AC maintenance for you, they make sure to fix loose parts, replace worn-out components, and address any other mechanical faults in your AC or HVAC unit. These are crucial to keeping your cooling unit noise-free for a placid home and peaceful workplace.
