How Often Should Air Conditioning Be Serviced?

Getting your air conditioning serviced regularly has many long-term benefits and can also ensure safety precautions are being adhered to. At Alphacool, we specialise in air conditioning maintenance and repairs in the Far North Queensland area. Whether you’re looking to service your air conditioner yourself or whether you’re wondering when you should call us professionals, we’re here to help. Find out more about the benefits of servicing your air conditioning and when to do so. 

Why is it important to service your air conditioning?

By routinely checking your air conditioning, researchers suggest that you are able to maintain up to 95% operational efficiency since installation. With the right amount of attention and servicing, you can ensure that your air conditioning has a long lifespan. This is because you are more likely to avoid small malfunctions which, when left in disrepair, add manual pressure to other parts of the air conditioning and cause it to exhaust its capabilities. By catching the small malfunction early, you can also save on repair costs and energy bills. By routinely replacing your air filter yourself, you will avoid clogging up your air conditioning which can cause exhaustive conditioning attitudes and translates into, unfortunately for you, higher bills. 

How often should you service your air conditioning?

Typically, you should get your air conditioning serviced once a year by a professional. However, this is subject to how well you are caring for your air conditioning yourself. For example, you should aim to change your air filter regularly or at least every 90 days. Your air filter is subject to sizing and, depending on your circumstances, comes in different ratings (with the highest rating being recommended for those with pets or with dust allergies). As well as this, you can also take preventive measures by cleaning your air conditioner regularly and getting rid of those dirty condenser coils! Doing so will promote better air quality and reduce the unhealthy accumulation of dust and dirt. 

Signs you need a professional

If you assess your air conditioning and it is making a strange noise upon turning the unit on long after it has been subjected to a filter change and clean, you must seek professional advice. The same goes for if your air conditioning is not performing its primary function of blowing out cool air and is instead not giving out any air or failing to cool it down. Both of these signs indicate that there is perhaps an electrical fault or that a specific component has stopped functioning.
