It's Spring Clean Time

It's Spring Clean Time
3 Sep, 2020

It’s time to put another cold, damp and gloomy winter behind us because spring is here! And as the trees blossom, it’s time to think about a yearly spring clean and your air conditioning maintenance.

Okay, we know that’s probably the last thing you want to think about, but hear us out. In no time the weather will be hot and you’ll want to put the air con on. But it may have dirty filters or broken parts. Then you’ll be calling up your local technician who’s booked out for weeks.

Forget waiting. Now’s the time for spring service. Here’s how air conditioning maintenance can help your cooling system.

Split Systems

Split systems cool all summer long and then heat your home through the winter chill.

For the unit to work at its best the filter has to be regularly cleaned.

Dirty air conditioners harbour bacteria and allergens. They spread airborne bacteria through your home.

So the whole unit should be professionally cleaned to ensure the best possible air quality.

The change of season in spring and autumn is the best time for cleaning and servicing your split system to prepare for the new season.

Because it’s not peak time you can easily get same day service with Metropolitan. The benefits of a spring and autumn clean are:

  • More efficient operation
  • Energy savings
  • Cleaner air
  • Longer lasting AC
  • Reduce airborne bacteria
  • Beat the rush for servicing in summer and winter

Reverse Cycle Ducted Systems

Central heating and cooling makes winter and summer comfortable. Your reverse cycle ducted system needs to be serviced and cleaned to keep you comfortable and healthy.

The filter has to be clear for the unit to work at its best.

A dirty filter means dust and airborne bacteria are circulated through your home.

Your ductwork accumulates dust and debris over time and also benefits from a thorough clean out.

The best time to clean the ducts and filter is spring and autumn when the unit gets less use and the demand for AC services is low. It’s easy to get it done in a day with Metropolitan.

Enjoy these benefits with a change of season service and cleaning:

  • Power savings
  • Clean, healthier air
  • Increase lifespan of the system
  • Minimise airborne bacteria
  • Beat the peak season servicing rush
  • Optimal performance and efficiency

Gas Ducted Heaters

Gas ducted heaters should be serviced and cleaned either before or after winter.

It’s the best time because technicians are more available outside of winter peak season.

In spring and autumn you can get things done and dusted on the day with Metropolitan.

It’s the ducts that need dusting. The unit works best if the ductwork is cleaned out.

The benefits of duct cleaning and servicing are:

  • Save energy and reduce bills
  • Cleaner air
  • Eliminate that musty smell
  • Increase the heater’s lifespan
  • Beat the servicing rush in winter
  • Optimal performance and efficiency

The service can include a carbon monoxide test to make sure there are no problems with this deadly by-product of burning gas.

Carbon Monoxide Testing

Carbon monoxide is a deadly by-product of gas heaters. It must go up the flue and outside.

Metropolitan check for negative pressure to make sure carbon monoxide can’t be drawn into the room.

We also use a device to test for the presence of carbon monoxide to ensure your safety.

The important benefits of carbon monoxide testing are:

  • Keep you and your family safe
  • Peace of mind

Evaporative Air Conditioning

You use your evaporative cooler in summer. It’s covered and turned off in winter.

Spring and autumn are the ideal times to get it serviced and to clean out the ducts.

Ducts accumulate dust, debris and unwelcome guests such as insects and animals who get trapped.

Cleaning the ducts keeps things clear and fresh.

Doing it in spring or autumn means you can get it done without waiting.

The benefits of a service and duct clean are:

  • Healthier air
  • No smells
  • Increased efficiency
  • Energy savings
