Below are some points for home owners / property owners to take note should you need a service for your air conditioning.

Aircon Not Working ?

1. Check Main Power Switch

Although it is very uncommon to experience power shut down in Singapore, it is recommended to check that you have power in your home and that the rest of the electrical appliances are functioning. By narrowing the possibilities, you can start filtering your options. Sometimes, it might be a simple electrical tripped by other appliances that lead to a power shut down. In this case, it can be solved easily by unplugging your affected appliances, switch the main power outlet ON and check if your aircon is working.

2. Check Your Aircon Remote

This is a common problem faced by many home owners. Sometimes, it can be a simple case of battery dying. By replacing the batteries, you can further test to check if your aircon is functioning. Even after changing the batteries and your aircon still does not function, try to turn the aircon ON manually. This manual option will be recorded in your aircon user guide.

3. Avoid Self Fixing

We highly recommend not to try self repairing your aircon unless you are a aircon expert. We understand that you might be tempted to fix the problem on your own to save cost but many a times, it turns counterproductive. In an event where you try fixing and further damaging the internal components, it will turn into a major repair or replacement.

Digital Lock – Trends / Compare / Recommendation

Reasons Why You Should Consider A Digital Lock

  • Enhance Security

It allows users to change their pin code on their digital lock whenever they want. Digital locks are also much more difficult to break in as compared to tradition door locks. A hammer and a screwdriver are all that you need to break open a manual door lock compared to a digital lock which is pick proof.

  • Convenience

There is no longer a need to carry around a large set of keys and worry about your keys getting stolen or misplace.

Most users will experience at least once or twice in their life that forgetting to bring their house keys out becomes a big problem. Families with elderly and young kids tend to face this problem more often.

  • Easy to use

Keying in pin code, using fingerprint scanning or RFID card are very convenient to access the door especially for the elderly or the disabled.

When it comes to young children, where they often misplace their keys, parents need not worry that their young child will not have entry into their home.

  • No need to worry about illegal copy of keys

For landlord who rent out their properties, they often worry that their tenants have extra copy of keys when they shifted out and constantly having to replace the entire door lock set which becomes costly in the long run. Owners simply needs to change the pin access.

  • Easy management of access

You may grant access to relatives, maid, or part time helper easily by giving them a temporary access code without the need to duplicate or passing them a key.

For certain models, you are even able to preset a specific time password access for a given time frame.

No longer do we need to purposely rush home to help with just opening doors

  • Trendy Outlook

Most Digital lock generally look much nicer. Their sleek and seamless surface enhance the appearance of the digital lock which makes it look more elegant and modern like a smart phone or tablets.
