Short answer, YES!


Why do air conditioners need servicing?

It is recommended you service your air conditioning system every 12 months. This ensures your system runs smoothly and efficiently and can eliminate the possibility of costly repairs in the future.


If you want to make the most out of your ducted air conditioning system it needs to be serviced at least annually. If a service doesn’t occur you are guaranteeing you system won’t last as long. So a system that was supposed to last 12 years will now only last 8. An air conditioner cannot be neglected. For example, if you let you can run for years without getting it serviced there is a high chance it will break down and you will be up a creek without a paddle. The same applies to air conditioning units


Keeping your health and wellbeing in mind, if you’re not getting your air conditioning regularly serviced, a build-up of dust and bacteria could be forming in your unit and could be causing health issues especially for elderly people, children, and people with asthma. Clean air is very important and when an air conditioner isn’t clean dust and bacteria can accumulate until it is infecting the air as it has nowhere else to go after being trapped in your unit.

Power consumption

Electricity costs are a big factor in home ownership and renters. Australians pay the most for electricity when compared to anywhere else in world and that’s why Aussies need to do everything within their power (pun intended) to stop paying extra on their electricity bills. Have a serviced air conditioner supports this as your system doesn’t have to work as hard to have airflow.


Many companies offer a warranty, like us at Quality Air. More often than not, to keep that warranty intact you must not void it by skipping annual services. If a system that hasn’t been getting regular services breaks down because of the extra pressure it has to maintain, it is no longer covered by warranty as the faults could have been avoided if the system was correctly taken care of.

It is very easy to ignore getting your air conditioner serviced to save some extra money, but not getting it serviced could end up becoming more costly than you expected with repairs.
