Secunderabad: K Madhavan, a retired railway employee and resident of Sitaphalmandi, has been waiting for the AC mechanic for almost a week. Like him, there are several in the city who have opted for the services of AC mechanics and are waiting. Shop owners of electronic appliances say that there is a dearth of mechanics and with the onset of summer; the demand for mechanics is on the rise. “Heat, Air, Ventilation and Cooling (HAVC) helps in the maintenance of the air conditioning unit and also lowers the power consumption,” says Ramsunder, owner of Padmavathi Electronics at RP Road, Secunderabad.
Refrigerants used for cooling are the major contributors to global warming. By 2022, India is expected to have one fourth of air conditioners in the world; the harmful effect to the environment from this could be immense. Under a business-as-usual growth trajectory, about 4.5 billion air conditioners are expected to be installed by 2050. The HFCs (hydroflurocarbons) released from the air conditioning units cause the depletion of ozone layer and increase the temperature.
With the increase in the air conditioner installation there is an increasing demand for AC repairs and cleaners. Not cleaning the air filter will bring a hike in the power consumption and will also increase the level of HFCs released from the unit. Old ACs consume 1.5 units per hour while the new generation ACs has in-built inverter which will reduce the consumption to 0.91 units per hour
The more the power consumption, the higher are the levels of harmful chemicals getting released. Frequent cleaning of the air conditioning units is necessary to reduce the power consumption. Havoc heating, ventilating and air conditioning preventive maintenance cuts down the energy bill, preventive maintenance ensure that the system runs efficiently. It extends the lifespan of the unit which reduces the likelihood of spending a huge amount on the air conditioning systems. As-long-as the system isn’t overworking; it can save you a huge chunk of change on your electricity bill. Along with it cleaning the air conditioners must be cleaned on regular basis.
There is dearth of servicemen who repair and clean the air conditioning units. Clean air delivery late is the amount of clean air an air cleaner provides to a room or space. The dearth of servicemen leads to delays in cleaning and repair of the AC units, which in turn results in hike in power consumption.
