What exactly does air conditioning maintenance involve?

  • ducted air conditioning service

It’s important that we get everything right when performing ducted air conditioning installation in Brisbane.

However, it’s just as important that said system is well-maintained and serviced in the years after it’s installed.

While most Brisbanites put a lot of effort into the first step, thoroughly researching air conditioning teams in Brisbane and looking into system specs, many completely neglect the second one!

Repairs and service are two of the most important things you can do to keep yourself comfortable in the home. A good maintenance schedule can help you identify (and fix) issues with your ducted air conditioning, before they become major problems.

But what exactly does air conditioning maintenance involve?


Ducted air conditioning service and repairs: how it works

There are dozens of different steps that might make up part of your air conditioning maintenance depending on how large and complex your system is.

As a general rule however, there are a couple of maintenance tasks that we run through no matter what type of system your home or business uses…

Filter cleaning

You’d be surprised how many air conditioning “problems” are simply the result of dirty filters and fans!

One of the first things we’ll do during air conditioning service and repairs is inspect your filters. In many cases, reduced cooling power can be fixed by simply cleaning these filters out, restoring airflow.

For split systems, this is a simple affair – just open up the indoor unit. For ducted air conditioning, it’s a little bit more involved as the filters are located deeper in your ductwork.

Whichever type of system you use however, the fundamentals are the same!

Electrical inspection

Electricity is dangerous, full stop – that’s why it’s so important that you ensure that the electrical wiring that powers your air conditioning system is functional, fit-for-purpose and safe.

Our mobile tech team aren’t just air conditioning specialists – we’re also licensed electrical experts who can inspect and repair the all-important electrical wiring powering your entire air conditioning system.

As part of your air conditioning service, we’ll inspect the connection between your electrical circuit and your air conditioning system, making sure that the wires are:

  • Properly insulated
  • Connected securely
  • Waterproofed

Coolant checks

Electricity is what powers your air conditioning unit. However, it’s coolant that makes the actual cooling process possible!

During your air conditioning maintenance, we’ll check the coolant levels in your system, identifying and fixing potential leaks and if necessary, topping up your coolant levels.

Refrigerant might sound harmless, but it can be incredibly dangerous, causing chemical burns if it comes into contact with bare skin. If you suspect a leak, don’t try to patch it up on your own – instead, call a professional.

Each member of our team holds a refrigerant handling license, certifying our ability to safely handle refrigerant as well top up your refrigerant levels.

Checking condenser fan and evaporator coils

Typically located in the outdoor unit, the condenser fan and evaporator coils are key to the air conditioning process:

  • Condenser fan – blows warm air over the evaporator coils
  • Evaporator coils – where the actual cooling itself happens

If you want to learn how these two components work together to cool down your house, we suggest checking out this article where we explain it.

All caught up? Good.

During your air conditioning maintenance, our team takes a look at both your condenser fan as well as your evaporator coils to ensure that they’re working properly.

In particular, we look out for common issues like mould and dust – both of which commonly pop up in both of these parts, and both of which can negatively affect your comfort.

Ongoing service contracts for commercial clients

While many of our air conditioning clients are residential, most of our maintenance and service requests are from businesses and other commercial properties.

It makes sense, too: compared to residential air conditioning systems, the systems you’ll find in workplaces typically run much longer and are considerably more complicated, making a regular maintenance and service schedule even more important!

As a business owner or the operator of a commercial property, it’s important that you keep your air conditioning in good working order.

A comfortable temperature at your business:

  • Helps protect employee health and wellbeing
  • Leaves a good impression with customers and visitors
  • Protects temperature-sensitive equipment and stock

Our mobile tech team doesn’t just offer emergency repairs when something goes wrong with your air conditioning – we also create individualised service contracts for your business.

Tell us what your opening hours are, your busiest seasons and any periods where you shut down for the holidays. We’ll come in during these quiet periods, reducing the disruption to your operations.

Of course, the scheduling isn’t the only thing we’ll tailor to fit your needs.

Our team also creates custom service routines, depending on your system and usage. For each subsequent service, we’ll run through the tasks included, creating a checklist of things that need to be done. These services take place throughout the year, particularly over the quieter winter period and also in the lead up to summer

Once that’s done, we’ll get to work, doing any work needed (after getting your approval, of course) and listing down everything we’ve done using Simpro, web app that allows you to check your system’s maintenance history from anywhere.
