Why is air conditioning maintenance important?

Even if you don't notice anything wrong with your A/C unit, it's still a good idea to have it checked out by professionals at least once a year – especially when the summer's approaching.

Air conditioning repairs are in high demand when the temperature heats up, and you won't be left sweating when you schedule an inspection ahead of time. Regular cleaning and servicing means problems are less likely to develop, so you won't be stuck without cooling or heating when you need it most.

Without routine maintenance, your air conditioner will steadily lose efficiency and performance over time. It will cost more energy to cool your home and you might find it more difficult to maintain the temperatures you want.


Air conditioning maintenance checklist

Carry out these basic checks and cleans every month during the cooling season to improve the chances of your A/C system running smoothly.

Change the filter

Dirty filters reduce performance by up to 15% and increase energy costs. If you don't change your filter for a long period, this could cause serious damage to the evaporator and other components. Aim to clean or replace your filter every month when the system's in use. If your house has a lot of dust or you have pets who shed fur, you may need to change the filter more frequently.

Clean the coils

Filters prevent most dust and dirt from getting into the system, but some will still get through over time. This impairs the efficiency of the evaporator and condenser coils, as they can't absorb as much heat. These coils should be cleaned once a year, ideally by a professional, or more often if they're exposed to dust and dirt in their surroundings.

Check the coil fins

Dirt can also collect on the aluminium fins on evaporator and condenser coils over time. The fins can also move or get bent out of shape. They should be cleaned and moved back into their original position to restore normal performance.

Remove obstructions

Outdoor condenser units should be kept free from dirt, dust and foliage. Sweep away leaves and other debris and cut grass, bushes and other plants back to at least one metre, to make sure airflow isn't restricted. These units are designed to be outdoors in all weather conditions, so they should never be covered.

Give it a test drive

Don't wait until the summer to check that your system's working properly. Switch it on in the spring and let it run for an hour, so you'll have the chance to spot anything unusual that needs to be dealt with before the heat arrives.


Professional air conditioning maintenance

Basic cleaning and maintenance can be done DIY, but for more complex or potentially hazardous tasks, you need to call in the experts. Some air conditioning services can only be carried out by a licensed technician.

Getting your units checked out by the professionals saves you money in the long term. When your air conditioner's operating at peak efficiency, you'll enjoy lower electricity bills and the components will last longer, so you won't have to replace the system before its time.

    The team at MaXim Air are extremely professional and friendly. They provided expert advice and suggestions during the initial quote for a ducted system, which was also highly competitive. The installation went flawlessly, they even helped fix up a sagging ceiling when installing the ducted vents. They truly went above and beyond in making sure I was 100% happy with the job. I would highly recommend MaXim Air Conditioning.

    Arran provided expert advice and ideas (that no one else had suggested) for the initial quote for our ducted air conditioning. The quote was very competitive. We received reminders of the installation day via text prior to installation. On the day of installation Victor and his team arrived on the dot of 7am and worked all day until the job was completed. They were very conscientious and cleaned up thouroughly. Would highly recommend MaXim air conditioning services.

    Maxim recently installed 2 split system air conditioners for us and we were very pleased with their excellent service. Stephen and his team were efficient, hardworking, professional, and pleasant to deal with. We were impressed with the effort that the team went to in ensuring we were happy with the position of the units in each room, and making sure the areas were tidy and all rubbish removed after installation. The team was punctual and completed the tasks within the quoted time frame. We also were grateful for the quick responses to our queries. We would highly recommend Maxim. Thank you Stephen and team.

    Excellent service from the Maxim team. A bit late (due at 7am which is too early on a Saturday anyway!) but no concern as they did a great job and were very helpful. Highly recommended.

    I had several companies quote to replaced my existing, very old, ducted system. Maxim was the only company to actually listen to what I wanted and make great suggestions - and they delivered a quote that was much lower than I had expected. They turned up on the agreed day and worked till the job was done - no corners were cut - the quality of the install was excellent. It was a very large complex job. They cleaned up everywhere - it was like they had never been there. They left very late at night, after a very early start. Before they left I found them with a torch going over my driveway in detail to make sure no screws had been left that i would drive over - you don't see that attention to detail often. The large team we had working at our place were all very courteous and friendly. For value, integrity and a very high standard or workmanship - I would recommend Maxim to anyone without hesitation.

    Stephen provided a detailed explanation of the installation process. Air con installed 1 month ago, with new duct, motor and unit. So far so good. The customer service was good, and the price reasonable.
