Air conditioning is a necessity for most of Queensland and majority of homes do have airconditioing installed.
Split systems or ducted AC are the 2 most popular systems.
Brisbane's humidity does not work with Evaporative systems as these are suited for dry enviroments.
To have ducted airconditioning installed - You will have to find and air conditioning expert.
A regular residential electrician can and will install split systems but the ducted units require more skill as they are a large motor that needs to be installed usually within the roof cavity and have the air ducts relayed throughout the home
If you have airconditioning, At times you will also need to have your air conditioning units serviced or cleaned. Just like you would for any major appliance.
Some maintenace you can do yourself - such as cleaning the filters on the internal outlets
When the external units or condensors neeed servicing, you need a liscened professional
When we come and to clean your air conditioning system we nnmake sure that everything is done right.
This is the checklist we use and tick off all the steps on
Your air conditioning unit does more than just cool your home; it also plays an important role in helping keep the air circulating inside your home clean and healthy.
A dirty unit provides a suitable breeding ground for mould, fungi, bacteria to thrive.
In humid conditions the better the airflow the less chance mould spores will settle and start to take hold
When you turn on your airconditioning unit, these particles trapped in your filters get blown into the room and contaminate the air, exposing you and your family to a variety of respiratory infection and trigger asthma attacks.
An Aircon cleaner does more then just wiping down the vents inside the home. They should also include replacing filters and completey washing out the condesor that sit outside the building
Leaving air conditioners running withot regular cleaning will compound into bigger problems and complete failure. As your air conditioner unit gathers more dust and dirt, it will become more difficult to get it back to a clean state.
As well as running ineffectively, the unit is prone to overheating as the evaporator coils are unable to disperse heat effectively.
A neglected air conditioning unit is also prone to developing ice build upscaused by is improper airflow.
In laymans terms, your air conditioner is suffocating and not getting enough air to function properly.
Bad airflow causes the coils to drop below freezing. Any humidity in the air will collect on the coils and form more ice on your air conditioner.
To prevent poor air flow all you need to do, is properly clean and or replace the filters.
These problems can be avoided by having your unit regularly cleaned by a professional air conditioning cleaning company Aircon Clean
In Queensland, the biggest cause of air conditioner failures are the cute little geckos that run around our homes.
These little critters love to live in airconditior units where it is warm and they have lots of areas to hide in and this is where the touble starts.
If they are on the circuit boards, they can ruin them with their urine and they will get zapped and short circut the fuse boards and the air conditioning unit stops working
Geckos cause alot of damage and expense when this happens.
Some warranties will exclude gecko damage if the system does break down as it is the home owners resposibility to maintain the unit and this includes keeping them clean and clear.
If you can gecko proof your air conditioner unit - you will never run out of cool air ad you will save your self thousands of dollars in call out fees and replacement costs
You can try to make sure all areas around the unit are sealed - silicone can seal most cracks and crevices
There are several Gecko repellent sprays that have pretty good feedback like Go Gecko
There are also stickly glue traps that trap the lizards before they get into the circuit board areas
You may need to use a pest controll service to install traps or to use the different repellents
You will need a Brisbane electrician to do any servicing work to your AC
