We Provide fastest and best Air conditioning repair and fixing services in Karachi.There are three common types of air conditioning systems – split systems, fixed units and ducted air conditioning systems.
Split System Air Conditioners
A split system air conditioner consists of two sections, one inside the home and one out, with the sections being connected by refrigerant piping. Split system air conditioners are available as reverse cycle or cooling only and range in power from 2 kW (6824.284 BTU/hr) to 8 kW (27297.136 BTU/hr). Generally, 2kW to 5kW (commonly 3.7 kW is also known as 1 ton cooling capacity) air conditioners are suitable for small to medium sized areas, while 5kW to 8kW air conditioners are suitable for larger areas. Split systems can be wall or floor mounted, depending on the space where they are being installed. Floor mounted systems are usually only used when the wall hung system is not feasible. Portable split systems are also available and these are usually smaller units that have the indoor and outdoor sections connected by a hose through an open window. The advantage of this is that the unit can be moved from room to room as required.
Multi split systems can air condition multiple rooms (up to seven) using only the one outdoor unit. These systems are best used when there is limited outdoor space or where there is not enough ceiling space to install ducted air conditioning. Using a multi split system means that you have control over the air conditioning in each room, saving you money in running costs and minimizing wastage.
Fixed Air Conditioning Units
A fixed air conditioning unit is a small box unit that is traditionally mounted within external windows or walls. These are generally only good for single rooms so multiple units may be needed if you need to air condition more than one area of your home. Smaller units can be plugged into a standard power point but larger units may need to be wired into the electrical system.
Ducted Air Conditioning Systems:
Ducted air conditioning can be installed in virtually any home, existing or new, provided that there is sufficient ceiling space. There are two components to the ducted system, with the compressor unit located outside the house and the indoor unit located within the ceiling space. The cooled or heated air is distributed through vents located throughout the house.
Repairs and Maintenance:
While professionals are able to repair your air conditioning system in the event that it breaks down, it is better to have a maintenance system in place. Professionals are happy to provide maintenance services. Such services include:
- checking how well the unit is operating
- checking refrigerant levels and gas pressure
- cleaning coils and burners
- checking for and repairing any leaks in piping or insulation
- replacing air filters
- resetting the thermostat and ensuring that it is correctly calibrated
- ensuring that fans are operating correctly
- ensuring that the unit does not rattle, vibrate or make excessive noise
- The filter in the air conditioner needs to be cleaned regularly and this is easily done by removing the screen and running a vacuum cleaner over it every two weeks or so.
This is especially true when it comes to split and ducted systems. When the air conditioning system is being installed, the refrigeration lines need to be completely free of any moisture, so that erosion does not occur within the compressor. Erosion can be harmful to the air conditioner’s performance.
Professionals can also help you design the right system for your needs, and can advise you on which system is best for you. Air conditioners come with manufacturer’s warranties, so in order to ensure that there are no warranty problems, professional installation is a must.
