Air Conditioner Service and Maintenance

There is nothing better than walking into a cool home or office on a hot summer’s day. That’s why we suggest that you look after your air conditioning system. A simple maintenance plan will assist in ensuring the longevity of the system and prevent your family from breathing in any dust, mould and dirt particles. Completing this regular maintenance will also save you money on electricity usage as air conditioners are able to run more efficiently when the filters are not congested.

It is as simple as removing the filters and washing them with warm soapy water and then rinsing out. This can be done as often as you like. We would suggest that you complete this monthly, particularly if you use your air conditioner quite heavily.

Secondly, you should arrange a professional air conditioner service at least once a year (more often if the unit is used heavily). This will ensure that the gas pressures are correct, the system is cleansed of mould and grime in the filters and coils, the electrical components are functioning correctly and the drain is isn’t clogged. Carrying out a service like this will ensure longevity of the system as the unit can operate without strain.
