Maintaining an air conditioner is a big job. Hiring a professional to service your air con will ensure that it is working properly at the beginning of every summer. A proper technician will do more than clean your air conditioner. They will check several things about your air con to make sure it up to standard and ensure it is operating at it’s highest efficiency.
Often, an experienced technician can identify necessary fixes before they become a problem so that you can avoid costly repairs in the middle of summer.
Technicians will often check or perform the following tasks (you should not attempt these on your own):
Check the electrical connections and tighten any that have loosened with use
Flush the drains
Clean both the evaporator coils and condenser thoroughly
Check blades and blower wheel for good air flow
Clean winder debris from the condenser
Clean the ductwork and make any necessary repairs. While you can access some of the ducting and clean it yourself, a professional will have special tools and techniques to clean the whole thing.
Check ductwork for moisture. Too much condensation can potentially lead to water damage or mould growth.
Check the refrigerant charge and ensure that it is correct
Give a full air conditioning service by inspecting the entire unit and fixing anything that needs to be fixed.
The result of a properly serviced air con will be a more efficient machine that produces cooler, cleaner air throughout our hot Brisbane summers.
