In order to ensure you get the maximum performance from your Heat Pumps Takapuna or Ducted Air conditioning system throughout its working life, you need to arrange for the system to be regularly serviced and maintained. For domestic or commercial customers. Commercial Air Conditioning systems typically have a full service every three to six months. According to council standards and requirements for the reason to obtain A building warrant of fitness (BWOF)
Airflow: Air-source heat pumps require free airflow to the indoor and outdoor heat-exchange coils. The air filter inside the indoor air-handling unit (AHU) is removed and cleaned. The outdoor cabinet is inspected for airflow obstructions.
Cleaning: The coils are deep-cleaned to remove debris and contaminants, and to help prevent mould and mildew growth. Clean coils are important for efficient heating and cooling.
Refrigerant: The refrigerant lines, coils and flare connections are inspected for leakage. (Refrigerant Gas )
Drainage: Clear drainage must be maintained to indoor units to prevent water leaks and damage. Drain lines are flushed and treated to clear and inhibit algae and mould growth.
Electrical contacts: Wiring and contacts are inspected for wear. Poor wiring and electronics can cause ice to form on the outdoor coil (heating months) and indoor coil (cooling months).
Compression: High-performance ductless mini splits utilize digital inverter-driven compressors, electronic expansion valves (EEV), and sophisticated sensors to prepare, regulate and monitor super-heating of high-efficiency refrigerant. Only a trained and skilled technician should inspect and test these components.
Homeowner care tips: Clean the air filter each month. A dirty filter blocks heat exchange and increases energy bills. Check the outside cabinet periodically for airflow obstructions, such as leaves, ice and snow (depending on your regional weather).
