Clean & Service

Why cleaning and servicing is important to you & your assets

Benefits of good air conditioning

A life saver

An Environmental Protection Agency study of heat-related deaths found that more than 9,000 Americans died from the heat between 1979 and 2013, a figure which does not even fully capture the magnitude of the problem. Many more deaths have heat as a contributing factor but not the main cause. Keeping cool with an efficient air conditioner is the best means of preventing heat-related deaths and illnesses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Better air quality

Air conditioners circulate and filter air, removing pollutants and mold from the air. This is especially important for people who suffer from allergies and asthma because it minimizes the irritants that trigger an attack. This only hold true, however, if your system is kept clean and filters are regularly changed. Otherwise, the AC can actually contribute to indoor air pollution.

Fewer insects and parasites

The filters also keep out insects and are far more effective than a screen in an open window. Insects are annoying but they can also be dangerous to people with allergies. A good air conditioning system can help keep indoor pets flea and tick free.

Improves work force efficiency

We’ve all experienced the mental sluggishness that comes with a day that is just too hot. There’s actually a scientific basis for this. According to an article in Scientific American, the energy the body expends trying to cool itself down takes away from our ability to think and reason. When offices are air conditioned, people are able to work better and make better decisions.

Cooler tempers

It’s not just our brains that suffer from the heat either. When the mercury rises so do tempers.  As an article on Today.com explains, while our brains are slowing down, our bodies are speeding up with increased heart rates and higher blood pressure. All this leads to more aggressive behaviour making a cool environment key to maintaining peace at home, work, and in public places.

Easier sleep

Those same physical changes – higher heart rate and blood pressure – that make us angry can also make it next to impossible to get a good night’s sleep. One’s core body temperature is also a critical factor in getting to and staying asleep. A too hot (or too cold) room interferes with natural temperature regulation which doctors say functions best at between 65 and 75 degrees.

Protects furniture

Heat, and especially the humidity that often accompanies it, can wreak havoc on furniture of all kinds. Wood gains and loses moisture with the air around it which over time leads to warping. Leather also absorbs moisture which could eventually cause that stylish couch to rot. And any fabric is susceptible to the mold that breeds rampantly in damp environments.

Protects electronic devices from overheating

Almost as scary as the effects of heat and humidity on our bodies is the damage they can do to our electronics. The phones and computers we depend on daily can suffer serious meltdowns when the temperature goes up leading to loss of data and an overall shorter lifespan. If your place of work includes computer servers, they can be completely destroyed or at least suffer major damage if not kept cool enough.

Better security

We’ve already discussed how open windows, even with screens, are limited when it comes to keeping bugs out. They’re even worse at keeping out unwanted people. Depending on where you live or work, an unsecure window or door simply isn’t safe. You want to keep your loved ones and valuables protected from both the elements and the unpleasant side of humankind.

Fewer sweat stains

This pales in comparison to many of the other issues, but the heat can be murder on your clothes.  Unsightly discoloration from sweat can cause serious embarrassment and send a favorite shirt to the rag bag. Keeping cool with a central air conditioning system can help preserve your wardrobe and your budget.

Benefits of good solar

Why clean your panels?

Why clean your solar panels, solar panels work by allowing light into the solar cells. The more light that hits a panel, the more power it will generate.Due to the upwards angle of solar panels, they are more prone to bird droppings and a build-up of general dust and dirt that does not wash off with just rain. This reduces the amount of light hitting the panel and reduces its output. As the projected energy figures claimed by solar panel manufacturers and installers are based on the optimum performance of clean solar panels, this build-up of dirt can adversely affect the panel’s ability to meet those projections. So it is important to clean solar panels in order to protect and maintain your investment.  Regular solar panel cleaning will also help you to make the most of the government feed-in tariff.

Warranty

Some solar panel manufacturers and installation companies have made solar panel cleaning a condition of their warranty. Should you have problems with your solar panels, if you do not have proof of regular solar panel cleaning by professionals, your solar panels may not be covered by the warranty.

Why rain won't clean your panels

A good way to illustrate why rainwater will not clean solar panels is by looking at your car windscreen. If you didn’t clean your windscreen for 6 months, how much visibility would you lose? If left, the grime on your windscreen would accumulate and eventually ‘green’ over. Even if the car is rained on, the rain contains airborne dust particles that settle and attach to the surface after the rainwater evaporates. When we use our windscreen wipers, we clean the centre of the screen, but where the wipers do not reach, there is a film of dirt. The whole of your solar panel is in exactly the same condition as the edge of your car windscreen because they are both exposed to the same elements. Visibility through your windscreen is lost due to the loss of light. Therefore, the same principles hold true for solar panel cleaning. It is very important to maximise the light getting into the solar panel and in turn, increase your financial reward.
