Cool Solutions was originally established in 2006 and truly are specialists in air conditioning. They offer installation, maintenance, servicing, re-gassing and repair services for residential air conditioning units and for vehicles, providing a convenient and flexible service. There is no need for clients to drop anything off at a garage as Cool Solutions will come to you to re-gas your vehicle’s units and the process usually doesn’t take longer than an hour. When it comes to home air conditioning, owner Werner Verdonck stresses the need for maintenance for the units on a regular basis. “It is not enough to just clean the filters; they need to be thoroughly maintained as this provides huge benefits and savings in the long run. “A well-maintained air conditioning unit will last longer, deliver better quality air and avoid costly electricity bills. If they are not maintained correctly the internal units build up mould and dirt which affects the air you breathe and means the machine has to work harder, affecting its lifespan. “This extra pressure also means gas will escape, which is both bad for the environment and costly in the long run as the units will need to be re-gassed more frequently,” said Werner. Machines should be serviced at least once a year, after which they will be as good as new. Contrary to popular belief, air conditioning units do not take their air from the exterior of the house but instead from the top of the inside unit, blowing it out again at the bottom. This means the same air is circulated through the house. Even where there’s no damp in the house, the unit creates condensation when cooling, which can create a perfect breeding environment for bacteria. Regular servicing is vital to avoid this problem in your home. Servicing also prolongs the lifespan of your unit and helps cut down on electricity bills. Cool Solutions is based in Moraira and also sells all types of well-known air conditioning units such as Mitsubishi, Daikin and Panasonic.
