All air conditioning equipment needs to be well maintained to deliver optimum performance during peak conditions. A poorly maintained air conditioner will be inefficient, pose a health hazard due to its dirty interior, and consume more energy resulting in frequent breakdowns.

Regular maintenance ensures that problems can be detected early and nipped in the bud before they escalate into major failures.

In the case of residential air conditioners, we recommend that maintenance be carried out once a year, typically before summer. Considering Melbourne’s climate, this is generally sufficient to ensure that the equipment is well looked after, and to satisfy the manufacturer’s warranty conditions. We can tailor a preventive maintenance program for all commercial and industrial applications.

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, office or workplace but it also pays for itself by catching small defects before they have the opportunity to turn into major problems.
