Indoor Air Conditioner Cleaning Service

Are you wondering if it is time for an indoor air conditioner cleaning service? It most likely is. Cleaning your air conditioner is vital to its performance.

The split system AC is common in many Australian homes and Sensus Air Conditioning & Electrical are certified practitioners in line with Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) regulations.

We have over 10 years experience and we carry out split system air conditioner maintenance throughout the Brisbane area.

Filters located inside the air conditioner are responsible for trapping pollen parasites, dust, and other pollutants from the air.

The nature of air conditioners is that they collect dirt from the air and produce clean air. If an AC is not cleaned, it becomes a haven for parasites and mould to thrive. These toxins are then introduced into the air when the AC is switched on, and can cause respiratory problems, itchy eyes, and skin irritations.

If the air conditioner is used frequently, the filters may become clogged more often and require regular cleaning in order to retain efficiency.

It is possible to clean a ducted air conditioning system, however this job is best left to the professionals. On the other hand, some split system air conditioner maintenance can be done yourself – several parts of the split system AC can be cleaned at home.

You can easily open the AC cover and remove the filter(s), however, please ensure that the AC is off and unplugged before you open it up or clean it. We also recommend you refer to the air conditioner’s manual before you embark on the cleaning process.

Filters should be cleaned outdoors and you can do this by shaking the dirt off them, using a brush to gently scrub the surfaces, or vacuuming them.

In every case, it is important to wear protective clothing to prevent cuts or skin irritations. Where the filters have accumulated a lot of dirt, you can use warm water and a mild detergent to clean them. Filters should be allowed to dry out completely before being placed back into the AC.

A soft brush can be used to clean the evaporator coils found inside the indoor unit. While these can be cleaned using a soft brush, it is in your best interest to enlist an indoor air conditioning cleaning service provider to ensure you don’t void your warranty.

An expert AC service provider is knowledgeable in the handling of AC units, especially since there are refrigerants involved. A professional will know how to get to those hard to reach areas of an AC unit, and will test the AC once the cleaning process is complete.

How often should you clean your air conditioner?

This is determined by usage – an AC that is used a lot should be cleaned more often. We recommend cleaning of filters every couple of weeks.

Professional indoor air conditioner cleaning services should be sought at least once a year, although twice a year is much better.

It is also advisable to clean the air conditioner before the start of the summer or winter seasons. This will ensure that the unit performs to capacity and keeps you comfortable.
