When To Service Your Office Air-Conditioning


Office life is busy. We get it. And, your office air-conditioning – that quiet workhorse on the wall, on your roof, or at the back of the building, is often forgotten. That is, until it’s a stinking hot day and it fails, and your staff become miserable, complaining in the heat. It happens.

The way to prevent such a miserable disaster and potential money drain is to look after your air-conditioning system with regular servicing. 

Servicing your office air conditioning is not just about ensuring comfort; it’s about safeguarding the health and productivity of your workforce and optimising your operational costs.

Why you need to service your office air conditioning

It’s tempting to neglect that workhorse (your air conditioning). It’s ticking along nicely. So what if it fails – we’ll fix it if and when it does. 

Servicing your air conditioning will cost you less in the long run. Maintaining an efficient system is a better option – fiscally, than fixing or replacing a neglected one. 

It’s also beneficial for:

  1. Air Quality: Regular maintenance of air conditioning units ensures that the air in your office is free from dust, allergens, and other pollutants. 
  2. Energy Efficiency: Dirty or faulty parts can cause a system to work harder, increasing energy consumption and higher utility bills. 
  3. Extended Lifespan of the Unit: Regular maintenance prevents minor issues from developing into major problems that can be costly to repair.
  4. Consistent Comfort
  5. Preventing Breakdowns and Disruptions: Regular servicing is a proactive approach that can prevent sudden breakdowns and contribute to disruption in your office

What if you’re unsure whether your office air-conditioning is on the fritz or in need of a service? Well, here’s what to look out for…

How to tell when your office air conditioning needs servicing

Here are some signs that can identify your air conditioning needs a service:

  1. A decrease in airflow or efficiency
  2. Unusual noises like buzzing, rattling or grinding
  3. Unpleasant odours
  4. Increased energy costs 

If you notice any of the above in your office, there’s a good chance your air conditioner needs a service.
