Brisbane Air Conditioning

Service and Cleaning Why?

 

An air conditioner is a big investment usually between $1500-$4000 including installation. It is important to protect this investment to ensure that you get the max life out of the unit. Some people are diligent in cleaning the filters located behind the front panel, but most are not especially tenants! When operating the air conditioner acts as a air filter for your house catching all the fine dust, fur and contaminants.  These clog the filter also enter the cooling system rapidly. Once the contaminants start settling on the fins of the condenser and the fan barrel they start to build up and due to the water that is present from condensation they start to grow mould and bacteria. This causes two issues:

  1. the mould and bacteria is harmful to you and your family causing sickness and asthma.
  2. the build up stops airflow and reduces the cooling capacity of the air conditioner causing the unit to work harder and harder causing unnecessary wear and tear and heat.

What to do?

Clean the filters under the front flap regularly (once a month). Then at least every 6 months get the unit cleaned and serviced by a trained professional. If the filters are kept clean by the occupant then the professional clean will cost less as the build up should not be as bad. (cleaning should be done prior to and just after Sumner September and February.
