Home/Posts/Uncategorised/How Often Should My Air Conditioner Be Serviced?

A must-have for any Newcastle home is an efficient air conditioning system given our humid, subtropical climate. It is fair to say air conditioning in Newcastle homes is key to comfort.

After your outlay you want to make sure that it is worth its weight in gold. To guarantee this it is important that it is serviced regularly.

We at Breeze Air Conditioning suggest that a qualified technician does this annually. If you don’t then there’s a good chance the system will malfunction and you’ll have to spend a lot of money on parts and labour. Inefficient systems will also hike up your electricity bills.

A regular service can increase the performance of a unit by as much as 40 per cent.

We provide a full service air conditioning service Newcastle homes need and this includes:

Replacing Or Cleaning The Filter

This can become clogged with dirt and grime. You can monitor the filter performance over the course of the year yourself by taking out the filter and holding it up to the light. If the light doesn’t shine through it then you will have to clean it.

Calibrating The Thermostat

It detects the temperature in its area and determines whether or not our air con needs turning on. If your thermostat is faulty your home won’t be cooled to optimum levels. Our engineer will also check that the wiring is in good order. There are two types of thermostats: digital and programmable, both of which our qualified service team are trained to deal with.

Checking The Drain Line

This is similar to the filter isn’t and can be clogged with dirt. A dodgy drain line will cause the pan to fill up causing water leakage.

Evaluate Refrigerant Levels

We will assess these and make sure they are working for your specific needs. Leaks will cause the system to underperform. Inspect electrical components and controls. Faulty or loose connections can result in damage to the air con.

Lubricate Moving Parts

A standard service involves this because it prevents wear and tear and will give the air conditioner an extended life.
Clean the evaporator, condenser coils and filters. This is essential for optimum performance of the air conditioning system for the next 12 months.

Our technician will not only give your air conditioning system a thorough service he or she will give you some valuable advice on how your can play a role in keeping it in tip top shape all year round. If your system has seen better days we at Breeze Air Conditioning can also suggest which unit you could replace it with.
