Air-conditioning Preventative Maintenance

Banging or clanking is commonly heard when there is a broken or loose part such as indoor fan motor/blade or something out of balance such as the fan barrel. Depending on the location and severity of the part, it may need attention before continuing to use the unit. Alternatively, it could just be a matter of monitoring and letting the aircon run until complete failure if the system is close to end of life anyway. Blockages can occur  when matter accumulates in the aircon drain line, such as algae, slime or mould.

I recently completed some renovations to my Coffee House & Catering business in Port Kembla and required the services of a refrigeration expert to install and commission an under-bench fridge! It will prevent excessive power bills and save you money by detecting problems early or before they become most serious. Coverage for some causes of aircon damage are rare, such as animal or vermin damage. However, finding and maintain this coverage can be particularly useful in warmer climates where geckos frequently wreak havoc with AC units. Ice build  up and/or water leaking also can be a sign of refrigerant shortage.

However, some causes are standard inclusions, such as fusion, fire or storm damage. Please note that the Liquid Line and Discharge Line do not require insulation. Being exposed actually allows intended heat loss from these lines.

Nature’s beauty also provides the perfect home for all sorts of animals. If an AC unit is in close proximity their natural habitat, the risk of animal damage to the air conditioner increases. The most common animals impacting AC units include geckos, ants, cockroaches, lizards, snakes, frogs, rodents and possums. If you have an air conditioner with heat, it is recommended to flick this reverse cycle AC system to the opposite temperature function every 3 months and test run for 30 minutes. So if you are using the heating function in winter, flick the air conditioner to cooling at least once during that season.

To ensure your ducted system is working at its most efficient, you need to clean your filters at minimum once every six months. At the beginning of summer and then again before you start heating in winter are the optimal times to give the filters a good clean.

Lose covers or flaps can expose hazardous components or give children unwanted access to batteries. These outlets can be cleaned with a dry duster and/or a warm, damp cloth.
