Air conditioners, like any other type of machine, tend to be neglected until they require repair.

Even if you do not intend to mishandle the air conditioning in your Coffs Harbour home, you could still be causing problems without realising it.

There are so many factors that you need to consider when using an AC unit that it is easy to make mistakes.

Toormina Refrigeration Service hope to help our customers get the best out of their devices.

Not having the right size unit


There are so many different sizes of air conditioning units that it is easy to make a mistake on purchase.

Many homeowners, trying to economise on their air conditioning, will choose to buy smaller units to save money.

However, if you have a larger home where the unit has to work extra hard just to keep temperatures cool, your air conditioning system can start to fail earlier, and may need to be replaced sooner.

In addition, it can also cost you more money by using energy all the time.

Incorrect fitting


It is extremely easy to make a mistake when you install your unit unless you hire a company like Toormina Refrigeration Service.

Units in constant sunlight can have to work hard to cool down the room or placing it in a corner may make it harder to ensure that the temperature is lowered throughout that space.

Not using ceiling fans


If you want to help your air conditioning unit as much as possible, you need to add a ceiling fan.

This helps the air to flow throughout the room and assists in lowering the temperature. This means that your unit will not have to work so hard to cool down the room.

Not changing filters


Another common error that we see at Toormina Refrigeration Service is not changing the filter regularly.

Air-conditioners trap debris in the filter, so if it is not changed at least once a month, there could be a lot of dust collecting on your filter which not only affects the quality of your air, but can cause the air-conditioning unit to fail more quickly.
