Maintaining Air Conditioning Is a Necessity For Longevity

Over the years that service group 365 has been maintaining and conditioning systems it has become extremely apparent that a maintenance schedule is not usually the top of the owners priority.  however, systems that are not maintained correctly has a lifespan dramatically cut due to the pressure put upon the system and the additional wear and tear on the parts.  if you are looking for your air conditioning system to last as long as it possibly can then an efficient maintenance programme is absolutely essential.

Experience has shown us that whenever we take on a new client for an air conditioning maintenance, that has previously not had a maintenance plan in place the benefits they receive through efficient cooling or heating and reduced running costs far outweigh the cost of the maintenance.  to think for one second that in order to slash cost budget it is best to omit the maintenance, then this really is false economy. There is no substitute or system which will guarantee your air conditioning will last as long as it can than a maintenance plan.

How long should my air conditioning last

Manufacturers will tell you that your air conditioning system should last anywhere between 10 to 15 years as long as it is correctly maintained.  when you think about it initially, it seems like your investment really isn’t going to last that long.  But on the other hand, a lot of things change in 10 to 15 years. Imagine if your computers and telephones lasted that long?

The longevity of your air conditioning system is in direct proportion to the maintenance plan you have in place.  in some cases however there will always be some sort of mechanical failure which the only explanation is that the system was not manufactured correctly in the first place, and therefore the weaknesses have begun to show and resulted in a mechanical failure of some sort.

Over the years of maintaining all types of air conditioning systems service group 365 has seen air con systems which have  exceeded their working capacity in this little as four years due to an extremely poor  air conditioning installation coupled with little or no maintenance plan in place. On the other hand however, we are still maintaining systems that are over 25 years old and are operating as well now as they ever have done.  Don’t get me wrong, a brand-new system would be far more efficient by today’s standards, but still, they are running and cooling nonetheless.

A maintenance plan can take place on a quarterly or biannual basis. the company he was carrying out your maintenance programme will be able to assess your requirements after the first visit. Another thing to remember with air conditioning is the length of time that it is actually running in comparison to a car for example.  This is just so you can understand how efficient and air conditioning system can be when it is correctly maintained.  bear with me here it might seem a little strange at first will make sense in the end.  An average air-conditioning system will run for approximately 7 hours per day, five days per week and 52 weeks a year (this is assuming that you use your air conditioning to heat as well).  this means that your air conditioning will run for approximately 1820 hours per year.  if you rerun the calculation based upon a car it really becomes clear about how much work and air conditioning system actually does.  it has been calculating time and time again that the average speed of a car in the UK throughout its lifetime is only about 25 miles an hour.  If a car travelled the same time that your air conditioning runs throughout the year then it would mount up to 45,500 miles.  Now we have to do is times that by 10 or 15 years and you’ll realise just how efficient and effective air conditioning systems are when they are maintained correctly.

An air conditioning maintenance programme is an absolute necessity to ensure you get the most “mileage” out of your initial investment.
