Air Conditioning Services

Air Con Service

Air conditioning systems are an important part of many air quality monitoring systems. However, whilst the monitoring equipment generally always recieves regular service and maintenance, quite often the A/C units do not.

It is very important to have air conditioning units serviced thoroughly on a 6 monthly  basis for reliable continued operation of the air monitoring station. Analysers are susceptible to high temperatures and if run for prolonged periods of time with a malfunctioning air conditioning unit, the analysers will develop faults and can cause significant damage. It is not recommended for analysers to run continuously at above above 35 degrees centrigrade.

A few tips to keep your A/C in tip top condition.

Tip.1 - The air conditioner isn't cooling and the air flow is reduced - The unit is probably iced up, turn the unit if for a few hours to defrost.

Tip.2 - Using the air conditioner with the thermostat on maximum isn't usually necessary; an enclosure temp of 25oC is cool enough for most analysers, over cooling wastes energy costs.

Tip.3 - Regular servicing of the air conditioner will ensure the unit performs efficiently and reduces energy costs.

Tip.4 - Poor cooling is often caused by the heat exchanger (condenser) becoming blocked with dust and debris.

Tip.5 - If the unit is making strange noises or not cooling, turn the unit off. Running the unit when it has lost its refrigerant will damage the compressor

Tip. 6 - Before you call for assistance please check the air conditioner is in cooling mode and any plugs are pushed fully in.
