Like a car, an air conditioner that is regularly maintained will run better and last longer. A poorly maintained air conditioner will be inefficient, use more energy and be prone to breakdown more often. It could also be dirty and unhealthy.
Regular maintenance gives you the confidence of knowing that your air conditioner can be relied upon, that it will work at its optimum capacity at those times when you need it most.
In the case of residential air conditioners, we recommend that maintenance be carried out once a year, typically before summer. Considering Queensland’s climate, this is generally sufficient to ensure that the equipment is well looked after, and to satisfy the manufacturer’s warranty conditions.
The cost of maintenance varies depending on the type and size of your air conditioning equipment, but it is not very expensive. Not only is it important to the life of the air conditioner, not to mention the cleanliness and health of your home, but it also pays for itself by catching small defects before they have the opportunity to turn into major problems.
