In the electronic, electrical and technological aspects, if an appliance does not receive good care or proper maintenance, its lifetime is drastically reduced. One of these products is air conditioning system, equipment that has very delicate parts that need to be replaced from time to time, as well as periodic cleaning to help prevent possible creation of bacterial and fungal pests inside, with the consequent air pollution in our homes and offices, causing health problems.
The time factor is one of the most important when it comes to maintaining air conditioning. If you only use this appliance in seasons such as summer, you must carry out the following steps before turning it on.
The number of maintenance we must carry out per year depends largely on the use we give the equipment (number of hours per day) and the conditions of the site where it is located. For example, if the air conditioner is exposed to external factors such as dust, car smoke, pollution, or saltpeter, equipment maintenance should be done more frequently.
Taking into account the above, our recommendation is to carry out preventive maintenance in the following periods:
– In homes with moderate use of air conditioning (6 – 8 hours a day) and normal external conditions, it is recommended to perform maintenance every 4 months.
– In homes with intensive use of air conditioning (10-24 hours a day) and normal external conditions, it is recommended to perform maintenance every 3 months.
– In offices, warehouses, restaurants or areas with high traffic and higher thermal load, it is recommended to carry out a monthly or bimonthly maintenance plan. This plan must include predictive maintenance that can detect possible future failures.
– If our air conditioning has a long period of non-use, our recommendation is to carry out prior maintenance before turning it on.
The proper functioning of air conditioning systems not only responds to questions of comfort, health, and well-being of people who work in offices, hotels, restaurants or hospitals, or those who live in air-conditioned buildings. Specialized research units, for example, require exceptionally accurate designs and optimal facilities. There can be no mistake here. The smallest margin could cause local infections, even a pandemic, or dead.
Biosecurity is a matter of life and death. Working in biocontainment tasks does not only concern excellent engineering designs and maintenance services, but it also involves carrying out practices as delicate as preventing the spread of highly infectious agents into the environment, which must remain completely sealed.
