Commercial & Domestic Air Conditioner Maintenance
Why is Regular Air Conditioning Service So Important?
Air conditioning service is strongly recommended by the manufacturer of your air conditioning systems. Regular servicing maintain optimum running efficiency, a healthy environment minimising risk of allergies and increases the lifespan of your product. Poorly maintained systems can suffer significant losses in efficiency which results in poor performance, higher running costs and a shortened life expectancy.
Air Conditioning Systems should be checked at minimum, yearly for:
- Filter blockage / Dirt build up causing airflow restriction
- Mould & Bacteria build up on coil, fan and baffle
- Drain blockages
- Fan balances
- Condenser airflow & system condition (corrosion)
- Refrigerant Charge

Reasons you may need air conditioning repairs
If you notice your air conditioning is operating at the wrong temperature, for example, it’s blowing out warm air when it is set to cool mode, you may need air conditioning repairs.
Before you call a professional on the Sunshine Coast, however, ensure the thermostat in the air conditioner is set to lower than room temperature. If the thermostat is correct, there may be a bigger problem with your vents or compressor.
Over the course of a day, it’s normal for your air conditioning to complete cooling cycles if it’s set to maintain a certain temperature.
If, however, you begin to notice your air conditioning complete frequent or unusual cycles, it may require professional attention. An air conditioning system switching on and off repeatedly can cause a spike in your energy bills and will not cool your home optimally.
A weak flow of cool air is a common problem with air conditioning systems and usually indicates there is a blockage within your system.
It could also be a sign of a broken fan or a faulty motor. An expert repair service will quickly be able to source and repair the cause of the weak airflow.
If your air conditioner uses a refrigerant system to cool your property, it may produce condensation. This condensation, however, should be contained and should not leak out of your air conditioning system.
If you notice water pooled around your system or a drip coming from your air conditioner, your system will require urgent repairs. Urgent attention is needed as leaks are not only a slip-hazard, but they can also cause structural damage to your home if ignored.
Should you notice the moisture levels in your home feel higher than usual, for example, if your home feels humid indoors, it is likely you need air conditioning repair services.
Air conditioners should moderate humidity levels and keep the moisture of your environment at a comfortable level. Issues with moisture levels may require simple recalibrating repair services or more extensive repairs.
Unexpected Noise Levels
You will likely be familiar with the usual ‘hum’ of your air conditioning system unit or the beeping noise it makes as it switches on and off.
If, however, your system starts to make unusual noises or operates at a much higher volume than normal, it’s not only distracting but may be an indication there is a larger problem with your cooling system that needs to be repaired. For example, an unusual buzz or rattling noise may be caused by a loose part.
Annual maintenance can identify and resolve the above issues before they have the chance to impact the quality of your air-conditioning system.
To prevent your air conditioner from breaking down when you need it most, ensure you book regular maintenance services.
Prevention is always more favourable than emergency repairs.
AIR CONDITIONING MAINTENANCE FAQS
When you have air conditioning on the Sunshine Coast, you need to take good care of it so that it always works like it should. You can refer to the manufacturer directions for many tips about proper care of your cooling system. However, you may still have questions and that’s when it’s nice to have Allchin Air Conditioning and Refrigeration on your side. We are the experts in all air conditioning systems and can answer these frequently asked questions for you.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE THE AIR CONDITIONING FILTER?
There are several factors that play a role in how often you need to change your air conditioner’s filter. The number of people and pets in your home is one – the more residents in your house, the more often the filter likely needs to be changed. How often you run your air conditioner is another consideration. The more it is operated, the sooner the filter will need to be changed. Check your filter monthly and swap it out once it’s dirty or filled with debris. Most of the time, your filter will last 30 to 90 days before needing to be replaced.
HOW DO I CLEAN THE OUTSIDE UNIT?
Keeping your air conditioner clean is vital to performance. A dirty cooling system won’t work as well and may wear out and need repairs more often and you could even end up having to replace it sooner than necessary. Make sure the outside unit is free of leaves and other debris and wash the dust and dirt off of it, while it’s turned off, on a regular basis.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I NOTICE DAMAGE?
Most of the time, it’s best to call a professional when you are having an issue with your air conditioner? Our team of experts can diagnose the situation and help you decide the best course of action. We can also do proper repairs so you can get back to normal as soon as possible.
DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL MAINTENANCE?
Yes, you should have your air conditioner professionally maintained on a regular basis. There are some aspects of maintenance you can do on your own, but we are equipped to do some of the bigger jobs, including checking refrigerant levels and examining the electrical components. It’s a good idea to have your air conditioner checked by a professional once or twice a year for the best results.
