Air conditioner servicing good for health and wallet
A particularly hot and humid Victorian summer means you’ve probably relied on your air conditioner more. Here’s why an air conditioner service makes sense for your health and wallet.
Storms, hail and flashing flooding have been some of the hallmarks of a dramatic, La Nina-impacted Victorian summer. However, one weather trend has stood out for giving Melburnians a feeling reminiscent of holidays in Far North Queensland and Darwin, and that’s increased humidity.
A prolonged spell of hot and humid weather, combined with the return of working from home, probably means you’ve been using your air conditioner more often than in past summers.
Unsurprisingly then, air conditioning problems and breakdowns have increased since the start of summer 2021-22. The latest Emergency Home Assist data reveals that emergency plumbing and electrical cooling jobs spiked 78% in December 2021 compared to the same month in 2020.
Though you might think your air conditioner unit can work tirelessly year after year, there are compelling reasons – both health and financial - to get your air conditioner serviced regularly by a qualified professional before, during or after summer.
