Expert Air Con Repair Technicians
If your air conditioning unit struggled to keep the house cool in the heatwaves of 2015/16 you don’t necessarily have to race out and buy a newer, state-of-the-art model. This is because the size of your air con should suit the size of the area you want to cool – so bigger isn’t always the way to go for more efficiency.
Consider the position of your unit in the room in Geelong. If it’s placed so that the direct sunlight hits it for most of the day, you can’t expect it to be efficient. Make sure you have the blinds down, or thick curtains drawn to block out the sun. Or have the air con moved to an area where the sun isn’t affecting it directly.
Another thing (apart from the need for repairs) that can cause your air conditioner to become confused is draughts, also insulation that isn’t up to scratch, around windows. Heavy curtains can be a cheap way of correcting this.
However, the major reason most air conditioners break down is because they’re not well maintained or serviced regularly, or they need to be repaired by a reputable plumber or air conditioning expert in Geelong area. You can bet your air con will run more efficiently with a new filter, for a start. Regular maintenance can mean small problems are picked up and repaired before they blossom into major emergencies on a weekend.
At Cats our friendly staff are all highly qualified technicians, fully licensed experts in the field of air conditioners and cooling units. No problem is too big or too small. We service and repair all kinds of cooling and air con systems, be they commercial or residential, across the greater Geelong region.
Maintenance and repairs
Our technicians are trained to trouble-shoot and diagnose any potential problems you may have with your cooler. We have the necessary product experience to diagnose and repair any and all major models of cooling appliances in the Geelong area.
We carry a comprehensive stock of necessary parts, such as:
Motors, pumps, pulleys, belts drain-valves, solenoids, control-boxes, etc.
Since you and your family will be inhaling the air that comes from your unit, it is a wise person who has it serviced so it is sanitised and clean. Regular service can spot minor snags before they become big ones so when it’s boiling outside, your unit will perform as it should.
During a service we:
- Replace worn belts and pulleys, or just tension them correctly
- Correctly adjust motor pulleys to control motor amp-draw, and thus prevent blowing fuses on hot days
- Attend to motors and fan hubs with noisy bearings before they malfunction
Inspect filter-pads and cooler trays, clean and disinfect them or replace pads if required after quoting a price for the job
