If you have an air conditioner in your home or workplace, it is important to ensure it is regularly maintained by an air conditioning specialist. In this article, we’ll outline why preventative maintenance is important, what’s involved in air conditioning preventative maintenance, and discuss if you need an air conditioning maintenance contract.
Why is air conditioning preventative maintenance important?
Just as it’s important to regularly complete preventative maintenance for your other electrical equipment, it is important to complete preventative maintenance on your air conditioning.
Air conditioning preventative maintenance ensures your air conditioner – regardless of how new or old the system is – will continue to keep you, your family and coworkers comfortable no matter the weather.
Should I have an air conditioning maintenance contract?
If you have an air conditioner installed in your home or office, entering an air conditioning maintenance contract with an air conditioning specialist such as Too Breezy will make maintaining your air conditioner and completing all the tasks involved in good air conditioner preventative maintenance a breeze – excuse the pun!
What are the main tasks involved in regular air conditioning maintenance?
Tasks that should be completed regularly as part of routine air conditioning preventative maintenance include:
Clean and Replace Air Conditioning Filters
Over time, air conditioning filters become dirty and clogged. It’s important to regularly clean and replace them when this happens. This may result in severe health problems if you don’t get on top of cleaning and replacing your air conditioning filters as part of your air conditioning preventative maintenance routine.
A new air filter will also enhance the energy efficiency of your air conditioner by between 5 to 10%, which is great news not only for those who are environmentally conscious, but even if you just want to lower your energy bill.
Air Conditioner Coils
As with air conditioning filters, coils should also be cleaned and replaced frequently to ensure you get the most out of your air conditioning preventative maintenance.
Air conditioner coils are prone to getting clogged with debris and dust, which can reduce airflow and your air conditioner’s ability to regulate temperature. We recommend checking the quality of your air conditioning coils at least once a year, something which can be arranged easily with an air conditioning maintenance contract.
Reducing Excessive Moisture Through Clogged Drains
Ensuring drainage systems are well kept is a key part of air conditioning preventative maintenance. Clogged drainage systems can result in discolouration to your walls and carpet through excessive moisture, which can cause more issues. Therefore, an air conditioning maintenance contract, regardless of whether you’re a business or a homeowner, is a good idea.
What else does an air conditioning preventative maintenance specialist do?
Our team at Too Breezy specialise in air conditioning preventative maintenance. In addition to the above tasks we will also complete the following as required as part of your air conditioning maintenance contract:

- Check thermostat
What should I do if I discover something that needs to be fixed during my self-managed routine preventative maintenance?
If, when cleaning your air conditioning system yourself, you discover there is an issue, or something that needs to be fixed, it’s best not to try and attempt it yourself.
While certain air conditioning preventative maintenance can be completed by homeowners, the team at Too Breezy recommends you leave the harder, more specific tasks for the experts.
This is where an air conditioning maintenance contract with Too Breezy can really come into its own. You won’t have to worry about all those little air conditioning preventative maintenance tasks we’ve listed above, because you’ve already got professionals on hand to take care of all your air conditioning needs.
