The benefits of split system air conditioning in Canberra

The great thing about split system air conditioning in Canberra is it allows individual temperature control in each room, meaning they are super-efficient. A split system service is relatively simple (as no ducts are involved), but that doesn’t make it less important.

During a split system annual service, we carry out an in-depth 11-point split system air conditioner service, checking over everything from top to bottom, inside to outside. During your service, we check the refrigerant supplies, all electronics and thermostat controls and ensure the outdoor unit is clear of debris. We also ensure the pipe covers and insulation on the system’s pipework are in good working order (it can age in the summer sun). We also check the temperature of the air the system supplies to ensure everything is in order.

Upon servicing your system, our technicians will assess whether a comprehensive chemical clean is required. Sometimes we can complete this while on-site for an additional fee, but depending on your systems’ condition, sometimes our technicians will need extra time and a quote will be forwarded to you in this situation

A split-system air conditioner is commonly used in residential and commercial settings. It consists of two main components — an outdoor unit, which houses the compressor and condenser, and an indoor unit, typically mounted on a wall, containing the air handler and evaporator. A set of electrical cables and refrigerant tubing connects these two units. This design allows for efficient cooling, as the heat and noise from the compressor remain outside, while the indoor unit quietly distributes cooled air. Split systems are popular due to their efficiency, ease of installation and the innovative ability to cool specific areas or ‘zones’ within a building.

Signs that you need a split system service repair include unusual noises like grinding or hissing, weak airflow or lack of cool air, foul or unusual odours and visible leaks or moisture around the unit.

If you notice a significant increase in your energy bills without a change in usage, it could indicate that the system is not operating efficiently and may require servicing. If your air conditioner is frequently cycling on and off or does not maintain a consistent temperature, these are also indicators that it might be time for a repair.

We recommend servicing your split system air conditioner at least once a year to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. Regular servicing helps maintain the system’s health, prolonging its lifespan and preventing costly repairs. 

Minor repairs like fixing filters or minor electrical issues are often completed within an hour or two. More complex problems like repairing or replacing a compressor, fixing refrigerant leaks or addressing significant electrical faults may require several hours or a follow-up visit. The time frame also depends on the availability of necessary parts and the technician’s schedule.
