Air conditioning installation can take place at any time of the year. Sometimes it is inevitable to replace it in the middle of summer or spring because it broke down. However, some seasons are better off to work with when it comes to installations than others. Winter, for most technicians, is the best time to install the air condition systems for the following reasons.

When the warmer or hotter seasons come, most people are looking either to install new systems or to do some air conditioning replacement. During the cold season, these machines were not in use and therefore their breakdown went unnoticed. When the hot seasons come, people now start scheduling their installations, this may outweigh the level of personnel available for such jobs.

It is off season during winter and therefore you are better placed to acquire your air conditioner cheaply. When installation is done during the hotter months, the process may take longer therefore you may have to dig deeper into your pockets to offset the bill. When it is cold, the temperatures are more favourable to work in. This will take less time.

When the hot season comes knocking, the sellers will deliberately increase the prices in order to cash in on the extra money. This will not be favourable to your budget estimates. During winter, some company may set out rebates and therefore you have the chance to save some cash. These rebates may not be there during the hotter seasons.

Just because it is winter does not mean spring will not come. This means that you need to plan earlier for the warmer seasons to find you prepared. Last minute adjustment may lead to unnecessary expenditure that may disrupt your other plans. Therefore, if your air conditioner needs replacement, the earlier you do it the better. You do not want it to disappoint you when you least expect it.

Also, having your HVAC system’s air filters changed every three months can help cut your energy bills and help keep allergens, dust and dirt out of the air. Get the installations done when it is cheaper, more convenient and you have the time so that you do not rush over decision making.

Having your air conditioner maintained is an obvious choice for efficiency and reliability. The biggest problem is usually remembering to have it done before the weather gets too extreme. If you’re like most people, having one less thing to remember is worth a lot.

A maintenance agreement with a reputable, licensed air conditioning repair company like Brewair Airconditioning Services lets you check your heating and air conditioning system off your to-do list.

A maintenance agreement with Brewair Airconditioning Services lets you take the first step to guaranteeing that you’ll have your annual maintenance done on your heater and air conditioner. We will remind you that it needs to be done and offer you convenient times for your appointment.

You will also:

Extend the life of your HVAC system. A system that is maintained can last 3-5 years longer than one that is not.

- Ensure that the manufacturer’s warranty will not be voided. All manufacturers require annual maintenance by a certified technician for their warranty to be valid.

- Reduce the chance that there will be an emergency repair.

- When a heating and cooling system is inspected regularly, a technician can spot potential inconvenient and expensive problems and help you avoid them.

- Keep your system running at peak efficiency, which keeps your electricity bills low and comfort high.

Ensure that any agreement you enter into is with someone you can trust to offer the best service possible. At Brewair, you know what you can expect: certified technicians, top-notch service, and a company that truly cares about its customers in emergencies and every day. Call us today!

When you’re faced with the question of whether to repair or replace your heating and air conditioning unit, there are a few things to consider. This information will help you make the best decision for your situation. Also remember that your Brewair cooling technician can have a closer look and give you advice.

Most units will last between 8 to 12 years, after that point they become expensive to repair and begin to break down more often. Also parts are sometimes discontinued which causes them to be more unavailable or expensive. Consider the age of your equipment and if a unit is 8 to 12+ years old it is nearing the end of its life expectancy. (Note: You can add at least four years onto this number if you’ve had it regularly maintained by an air conditioning technician during this time!)

Even if you completely repair an old unit (which can be expensive to do), you will still only have the efficiency that it was rated for when it was manufactured, at best. Newer unit efficiencies, due to constant improvement and increasing government-imposed energy standards, have greatly improved over the past 20 years. In most cases, installing a new heating and air conditioning system can pay for itself in energy savings within a relatively short period of time.

The condition of your unit is the third factor to consider. Take into account the quality of your current unit, number of breakdowns you’ve experienced, and how often your unit has been maintained. If you have not maintained your unit and breakdowns are frequent, replacement should be a serious consideration. In this situation, no matter what the skill of the air conditioning technician, there is little that can be done.

So when you need to make a decision to repair or replace your heating and/or air conditioning system, make sure to consider all of these factors.

Chiller maintenance is often overlooked; many of us never see the high efficiency chillers and HVAC systems that provide air conditioning and heating for our commercial buildings. The equipment is safely out of sight and often out of mind, stored in mechanical rooms, underground or on rooftops. High energy costs, lower performance and reliability and decreased equipment life are all signs of a poorly maintained chiller system.

Poorly maintained chillers can be very costly in cash, time and productivity terms. They carry a high first cost, are the single largest user of electricity in most buildings and are expensive to repair if not maintained correctly. That’s why proper operation and maintenance of commercial building chillers should be a high priority for all facilities manager.

Regular maintenance is vital for today’s high efficiency and standard chillers – major components, such as compressors, electrical and controls components, condensers, evaporators and also the chillers’ operating characteristics all need to be inspected on a regular basis. Identifying problems early avoids equipment damage and can reduce downtime by up to 40 per cent.

Research has shown that regular maintenance can reduce unexpected breakdowns by up to 75 per cent and energy consumption by up to 30 per cent. Chillers can consume a substantial amount of energy, so these reductions in energy can be significant.

Compared to a major chiller failure, a sound predictive and preventative maintenance package will save money over the life of the chiller and ensure longer chiller life. We recognise that, for optimum, trouble free operation, it is not only necessary for these machines to be commissioned, but also to be maintained on a regular basis by a chiller expert. Regular maintenance minimises the chances of business loss and user complaints due to breakdown, whilst maximising the efficiency of the chillers’ operation, resulting in lower energy costs.

Regular maintenance is vital, as it reduces energy consumption, minimises and in many cases, avoids refrigerant leakage and guarantees reliable running of your machines. Being more energy efficient means using less energy, which reduces your operating costs. You will be making a positive impact on the environment by cutting carbon emissions and helping combat climate change.

Poor operating practices can impact on both a chiller’s efficiency and its longevity, which can, in turn, lead to misdiagnosis of operational problem; it’s all too easy to blame the weather or the chiller itself when, in fact, the issue is the way in which the chiller is being run.
