How we service air conditioners

Air conditioner servicing is a comprehensive process that requires technical skill and experience. We work through the following process when servicing air conditioners:

  • We thoroughly clean your filters, to improve air flow and quality. This reduces your electricity usage, and helps to capture nasties such as bacteria and pollen.
  • If your air conditioner has replaceable filters, if necessary, we will order replacements.
  • We check the refrigerant levels of the air conditioning system, to keep it working correctly. Low refrigerant levels can severely damage the system.
  • We clean the condenser’s (outdoor unit) and evaporator’s (indoor unit) coils
  • We remove any debris from the outdoor unit, and vacuum away dirt
  • If you have a ducted system, we will check for rips and tears, and clean them with a vacuum.
  • We will check all electrical connections, and tighten them if needed
  • We will flush the air conditioner’s drain line
  • We check that the air conditioner is cooling properly (and heating properly, if it’s a reverse cycle machine)
  • We check the air conditioner’s airflow, to identify blockages

Do I really need to service my air conditioner?

Yes! Unfortunately, air conditioning servicing is a neglected process, and many people come to us once their air conditioner has broken. Regular servicing doesn’t just help your air conditioner to work efficiently, it also vastly reduces the chance of it breaking down, saving you money in the long run.

It’s especially important to service your air conditioner before summer, as it will be working much harder during that period, and may break when the heat reaches its peak.

Air conditioning repairs Brisbane

If your air conditioner is weaker than usual, or not working at all, we can troubleshoot the problem and repair it for you. Some systems have serious problems that are cheaper to replace than repair, or may be so old that their parts are no longer available. If this is the case, we can recommend a replacement system that suits your property, and install it for you.

We are also happy to complete emergency air conditioning repair—just get in touch with us ASAP, and we’ll help.

Air conditioning servicing | Expert guide

Why should you get your air conditioner serviced?

Air conditioning systems are fairly complex pieces of machinery, with various parts working together to control the climate. If a machine is regularly used and expected to last for longer than a few years, it must be serviced to keep it working correctly, and to prolong its life. This includes your car, boat, bicycle, smoke alarm, hot water system, furnace, and air conditioner.

Servicing your air conditioner has the following benefits:

  • It will last for longer—by keeping the air conditioner clean, intact, and with the correct refrigerant levels, it won’t need to work harder than required, and as a result, will lengthen the life of its parts.
  • There will be fewer breaks—a regularly-serviced air conditioner helps to keep its parts in good condition, and running smoothly, resulting in fewer breakages.
  • It will reduce your electricity bills—an air conditioner that doesn’t need to work harder than necessary will use less electricity, and lower your bills.
  • Your health may be improved—air conditioners collect dust, pollen, mould, and other nasty pollutants. If these aren’t regularly removed, it can lead to health problems such as coughing, wheezing, earaches, stomach bugs, skin issues, irritated nasal passages, infection, allergies, and ashtma problems. Servicing helps you to breathe clean air, and keep your health intact.
  • Your air conditioner may be quieter—unserviced air conditioners are much more likely to develop problems, which can lead to rattling, grinding, cracking, gurgling, popping, and a host of other irritating sounds. These can often be fixed with a service or a repair.

How often should you get your air conditioner serviced?

It’s recommended to have your air conditioner serviced once a year, as well as cleaning your filters every few months.

How to maintain your air conditioner

Cleaning the filters (split systems)

Many air conditioners have removable filters that should be regularly cleaned. Usually, you can open the front cover of the unit, remove the filters, and vacuum them clean. For any stubborn dirt, you can soak the filters for a few hours in a solution of one half cup of vinegar and one half cup of water, giving them plenty of time to dry before refitting them.

Cleaning the louvres (split systems)

Louvres are the oscillating blades that direct the air flow from the air conditioner. You can clean them with a vacuum cleaner, and a damp cloth for any stubborn dirt.

Removing debris from the outdoor unit

The outdoor unit will often become soiled with dirt, leaves, and other debris, and should be removed if so.
