We cannot overstate the necessity that air conditioning systems are regularly maintained. Our teams of dedicated air conditioning service technicians operate throughout Melbourne and the surrounding suburbs and they purely focus on both servicing and maintenance of air conditioning units. Their vast experience can determine whether a particular part is near the end of its serviceability and advise that it be replaced to avoid the unit breaking down when you most need it.
There’s no ‘ifs and buts’ that the lifespan of regularly serviced air conditioning units will outlast units that have been neglected. We are still servicing units that we installed over ten years ago which run as well as they did the day they were installed. Conversely, we’ve seen the same branded units that have needed replacing after only three years due to the lack of regular servicing. Well-maintained air conditioning equipment keeps running at peak performance and keeps energy bills down!
The very fact that we offer an unrivaled 6-year installation warranty on all units we install and are responsible for the ongoing maintenance speaks volumes about the real longevity of aircon units.
How do I know if my Air Con needs servicing?
There are several tell-tale signs show that your aircon service is overdue. Common signs are when you notice that the unit no longer performs as well as it used to, e.g. not cooling or heating as effectively, or air flow is restricted. Another common sign would be unpleasant smells coming from the system. If any of these signs are apparent, then it is important to get your units serviced ASAP. During this time you are at the highest risk of the unit failing. It is our experience that the vast majority of expensive air conditioning repairs occur in systems which have not been subject to regular maintenance or servicing.
The installation of your air conditioning system is a major investment. Naturally, you will want to protect your investment by both prolonging the life of your system and ensuring that the air conditioning units continue to run efficiently and economically.
How often should a system be serviced?
Typically, when an AC system is used in a residential environment for cooling only, one service visit per annum is generally sufficient. However, where the system is used in both heating and cooling modes, we recommend at least two visits per year.
For commercial applications, e.g. shops, offices or restaurants, a minimum of two visits per year would be required. In critical locations, e.g. server rooms, trading floors, workshops or hairdressing or beauty salons where there are often high levels of airborne pollutants in the air, we would advise that your air conditioning maintenance program allows for three or more service visits.
Our recommended service plans
Our engineers will carry out a full assessment of the units when they complete the AC maintenance. They will give both the indoor and outdoor units a thorough clean, both internally and externally. They will check that the system is operating within normal parameters and will flush out the drain lines which will help reduce the possibility of future leaks. We do not simply clean the filters as many less than reputable AC companies do when they “service” your units.
We will send you a written quotation detailing everything that is included in your service and maintenance programme; the quotation will also include all pricing information so you know exactly what you will be receiving and how much it will cost before you commit to a maintenance contract.
Our maintenance plans are bespoke for your specific system and are set up to ensure you will receive the best value for money. When we have installed your air conditioner, you are automatically enrolled into our unrivaled 6-year warranty when you have chosen us as you annual maintenance service provider. The is no better protection available from any other air conditioning company for what can often be a major investment.
We also offer great deals if you have multiple air conditioners that require servicing. Contact us for further information and a quotation on our air conditioning service and maintenance packages.
