Cleaning air conditioner filters

After one of the warmest summers on record, your AC has probably had a hard time recently making sure you and your home or office has kept beautifully cool! If this is the case, now is the time to start thinking about preventative maintenance.

All AC units draw in air from the room. The air is then heated or cooled in the indoor unit before being released at the desired temperature back into the room. The air is pushed through a number of filters to purify and treat the air to ensure it is clean. Overtime these filters get blocked which will result in a drop in performance and an increase in energy use. If the unit doesn’t work at it’s most efficient this adds additional load onto component parts which can result in cost repair bills or a full system replacement.

We recommend preventative maintenance to stop unexpected problems. If your unit is under 5 years old, it also validates your Daikin parts warranty ensuring that you won’t have the extra cost of new parts should something go wrong.

We’ve experienced our busiest summer ever, and from experience, a warm summer means a busy winter for repairs because of non-maintained systems. Don’t let this happen to you by booking in your annual maintenance inspection now. Just drop our service team an email, service@cooltechairconditioning.com, and we’ll call you back to book you in.

Can a Change in the Refrigerant Used in Air Conditioning Save the Environment?

 

Environmentally friendly solutions are extremely popular in all walks of life; we’ve woken up as a species and realised that we really need to step up and protect our planet.

In the past, air conditioners have been blamed for breaking down our ozone layer through the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) gases as a refrigerant. Fortunately, many air conditioning manufacturers have ceased using such harmful refrigerants, and instead are using a more acceptable solution instead; hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gases.

Who Invented Air Conditioning?

‘AC’ could just as well stand for ‘ancient civilisation’ as ‘air conditioning’. Over 3,000 years ago, the Egyptians would typically hang soaking rugs in their doorways, keeping out the humid air of the Nile Delta, and thereby reducing indoor temperature through evaporation. Similarly, the Babylonian elite installed water features that ran underground to cool their temples and palaces.

Despite these early innovations, equating the primitive air conditioning of antiquity with modern AC is about as insightful as saying that central heating was invented when Neolithic man first brought fire back to the cave.
