Air Conditioner and Heater Service & Preventative Maintenance

QuickAir is dedicated to ensuring that your air conditioner or heater, including split systems and evaporative coolers, is always working at its peak performance. This can be achieved by having an experienced licensed technician perform preventative maintenance and routine air conditioning service on your unit. We treat all our customers as new and have them quickly booked in for preventative maintenance, aircon service, or regular service to ensure that efficiency is maintained.

Regular servicing of your heating, cooling, split system, and evaporative cooling units benefits you by reducing future repair costs, extending the lifespan of your unit, and saving you money on your electricity bills in the long run. Read our article about how setting up your air conditioner to the correct temperature can save you lots of money.

At QuickAir, we’re all about customer satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on our workmanship. Air conditioners, including split systems and evaporative coolers, lose their original efficiency if not regularly serviced by an experienced technician. On average, 90% of the units that haven’t had preventative maintenance have reported having ongoing issues. We want to take great care of your air conditioners, heaters, and cooling systems, call us on 1300 730 896.


How often should your air conditioner or heater be serviced?

The answer is annual or semi-annual. We suggest that the service, including aircon maintenance, split system maintenance, and evaporative cooling maintenance, needs to be conducted by an experienced technician. The best time to get preventative maintenance is before the season starts. There are multiple benefits of a regular service, one of them is having your unit working optimally, which considerably saves money on your energy bill. In most cases, the energy cost savings far outweigh the cost of our preventative maintenance price in the long-run.

To maintain your warranty on newly purchased units, annual service through licensed technicians is a must and makes you eligible for the warranty claims. Otherwise, the warranty may be invalidated by the original equipment manufacturer. QuickAir has same-day bookings available, call us on 1300 730 896.


Can regular maintenance of your air conditioner or heater prolong the life?

It becomes self-evident that regular maintenance, including air conditioning maintenance, prolongs the life of the unit and minimises the likelihood of an early breakdown. All QuickAir’s suppliers and well-known brands are consistent in their recommendations for preventative maintenance for the same reasons we have outlined above. QuickAir would like to call out a risk associated with air conditioners and heaters.


Is special care required for Gas Heaters?

Gas heating, if left unserviced, can cause carbon monoxide leaks, and be a serious health risk to you and your family. Various state governments, for example, Energy Safe Victoria, are running ad campaigns asking consumers to have their gas appliances checked regularly by a qualified technician for carbon monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide is deadly it can’t be seen, heard, or smelt. Have your gas heater checked by a qualified QuickAir technician and keep your family safe. Visit our blog or Energy Safe Victoria for more information.


What is involved in our standard service scope for the heating and cooling system?

  • Check the gas levels
  • Check the running pressures
  • Clean the filters and coils
  • Check the airflow
  • Check the controller
  • Test the thermostat
  • Oil the fan motor
  • Clean the grille and face cover
  • Check the condensation drains
  • Clear away rubbish and debris from the outdoor unit
  • Check the general condition of in and outdoor units
  • Inspect all electrical components
  • Check the amp draw of the compressor
  • Clean down the units
  • Carbon monoxide testing

*The above checklist varies depending on your unit type, not all tests can be done on all units.


An air conditioner’s compressor, filters, coils, and electrical components require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its lifespan. A gradual decline in performance and efficiency is a very common after-effect of neglecting regular preventative maintenance of your unit. We like you to think of QuickAir’s preventative maintenance in the same way you would think about the regular service of anything mechanical such as your car, pool, chainsaw, lawnmower, or gutters.

We also recommend our troubleshooting page, which might help you identify easy fixes to problems. However, don’t put off preventative maintenance for the best long term care of your unit.
