What to Expect When Getting Your Split System Air Conditioner Serviced?

Aussies are no strangers to warm weather. As the summer heat intensifies, it’s crucial to ensure that your air conditioner is in optimal condition to keep you cool and comfortable. Regular servicing and maintenance of your air conditioning system are essential to ensure its efficiency and longevity. 

If you’re wondering what to expect when getting your air conditioner serviced, this article will guide you through the process. So sit back, relax and let’s explore what lies ahead.

Thorough inspection and cleaning

A comprehensive inspection and cleaning is one of the primary tasks performed during an air conditioner service. A trained technician will carefully examine your unit—both internally and externally—to identify any potential issues. This involves checking the filters, coils, fan blades and electrical components for any signs of wear or damage.

The technician will then clean the unit, removing dirt, dust and debris that may have accumulated within your filters over time. This cleaning process helps improve the overall efficiency of your air conditioner, as a clean unit can cool more effectively and maintain better air quality.

The technician will also check the drainage system to ensure it’s functioning correctly, as clogged drains can lead to water leakage or damage. We can also complete a deep clean on your split system — if we attend to complete a general maintenance and it looks like your system needs a deep clean, we will send you a quote to perform a chemical clean on your split system!

Split system service

If you have a split system air conditioner, the service will include specific tasks related to this type of unit. A split system air conditioner consists of two units: the outdoor unit and the indoor unit.

  • The outdoor unit contains the compressor, which pressurises the refrigerant, and the condenser coil, which releases heat into the outside air.
  • The indoor unit houses the evaporator coil, which absorbs heat from the indoor air, and the fan, which circulates cool air throughout the room.

The refrigerant flows between the two units through copper tubing, transforming a high-temperature gas into a cool liquid. The thermostat controls the system, signalling it to start cooling when the indoor temperature rises above the set temperature. By working together, these components create a comfortable and refreshing indoor environment.

The technician will inspect both units to ensure they are operating smoothly. They will clean the indoor unit’s filters and coils, remove any dirt or dust and check for proper airflow. The outdoor unit will also be inspected for any debris that may obstruct the system’s performance.

Split system repairs

During the service, if any issues or potential problems are identified with your split system air conditioner, the technician will discuss the necessary repairs with you.

Split system repairs may include fixing electrical connections, replacing faulty components or addressing refrigerant leaks. It’s essential to address these issues promptly to avoid further damage and ensure the longevity of your air conditioner.

Professional advice and recommendations

In addition to inspecting and cleaning your air conditioner, a reputable technician will also provide professional advice and recommendations. They will share insights on operating your unit more efficiently, such as adjusting the fan speed or temperature based on your cooling needs.

The technician may also suggest upgrades or enhancements to improve your air conditioner’s performance or energy efficiency.

Routine maintenance schedule

Once your air conditioner has been serviced, the technician may recommend a routine maintenance schedule for future visits. Regular maintenance is crucial for keeping your air conditioner in top condition and preventing any potential breakdowns during the hot summer months.

By adhering to a maintenance schedule, you can catch minor issues early on and avoid costly repairs in the future.
