Top Air Conditioner Installation & Repair related questions

What’s involved in a standard air conditioner service?

During an air conditioner service, your electrician will check the thermostat and gas levels, along with filters, coils, coil fins and condensate drains. They’ll make sure they’re all free from dust and debris so air can flow properly.

How often should I service my air conditioner?

This can depend on how frequently you use your air con unit and how dusty or polluted the outside environment is. If you do a DIY clean of your filters every few weeks and keeping the outdoor unit clear of debris and cobwebs, you may only need a professional air conditioner service once a year.

Do ducted air conditioners need servicing?

Yes, just like all other air conditioners, ducted air con systems can collect dust and dirt, so need regular cleaning. Brushing and vacuuming around the vents will help, but it’s a good idea to get the ducts professionally serviced yearly.

Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

When trying to decide if you should repair or replace your air conditioner, weigh up factors like: the age of the air conditioner, its energy efficiency, and the cost of a new unit verses the cost to repair.

Do you need a licence to install or repair air conditioners?

Each Australian state regulates the licences of air conditioning professionals. But installers and technicians across Australia must hold one of two licences issued by the Australian Refrigeration Council: either a Full Refrigeration & Air Conditioning licence, or a Restricted licence (allowing for work on split system air conditioners only).

How much does it cost to service an air conditioner?

The average cost of an air conditioner service on Airtasker is $122-$450, but price can be affected by the complexity of the task. Read our air conditioner price guide to learn more about the cost of different air conditioning services.

What do Aircon Installation services include?

Aircon installation services include installing the more commonly used window-type or split-type air conditioning units in your home. Some technicians may have the expertise to install the wiring, and offer other services, including checking the refrigerant levels, inspecting the coils, coil fins and condensate drains, checking and cleaning the filters and vents of dust and debris.
 
Installing Window-Type Aircon Units

Technicians that install window-type units can insert the unit into a pre-constructed wall slot. If you don’t have this, you can request for this service as some technicians may offer to install mounts for the aircon unit in one of your windows.
 
Technicians that specialize in aircon installation usually remove old aircon units from their slot, then place your new window-type aircon unit. They may also test your wiring to ensure there is sufficient amperage to power your new aircon unit.  
 
Installing Split-Type Aircon Units

Technicians can mount your split-type aircon unit on the wall of your choice in a room, install the condenser outside of the room and connect its ducts and wiring. If your walls are concrete, be sure to have a hole made before installation to allow passage of the wires and ducts. In the absence of this, you may be able to request this as part of the installation service as some technicians may be able to perform this part of the installation process.
 
Aircon Unit Repair & Maintenance

Technicians can perform simple maintenance work on your air conditioning units. They can clear the vents, coils, coil fins, and condensate drains of any accumulated dust and debris. They can also clean the surfaces of the unit as needed.
 
In terms of repairs, technicians can inspect the unit and find what is causing your air conditioning unit to malfunction or not work at all. Technicians will fix the problem if they can. They may advise you to buy a new unit if the repairs are too complicated and expensive compared to purchasing a new one.
