Air conditioner servicing and maintenance: What you need to know
How often should I service my air conditioner? How do I increase the lifespan of my air conditioning system? Here’s what you need to know about regularly servicing your air conditioner.
According to the latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), around two-thirds of Victorians have one or more air conditioners in their home. With warmer temperatures around the corner, it’s important to think about how to cool your home efficiently and cost-effectively.
Overall, air conditioning problems and breakdowns are on the rise. RACV Home Emergency Assist data reveals that emergency plumbing and electrical cooling jobs spiked 62 per cent in December 2022 compared to the same month in 2021.
Hot temperatures and above-average humidity may categorise the upcoming Victorian summer, thanks to El Nino. With the ABS finding that most Victorian households used their air conditioning for an average of nine weeks or more over the summer period, your cooling unit may be under more stress this summer.
Though you might think your air conditioner unit can work tirelessly year after year, there are important reasons – both health and financial - to get your air conditioner serviced regularly by a qualified professional.
