At Siv Air we don’t just clean your air conditioners, we service them!
Regular aircon cleaning is the key to maintaining the life of your air conditioner if you live in Cairns. It is also essential to your health if you live in areas of high humidity and heat. There are days where your air conditioner can seem like your best friend. But unfortunately, that “best friend” produces condensation. Because of this, Aircons can become the perfect breeding ground for mould, mildew, and other allergies.
Bacteria, mould, and fungi that can grow inside a dirty air conditioner can be detrimental to your health. This is especially true for anyone who has a depressed immune system or illness. Furthermore people with Asthma or allergies are also likely to be affected.
The presence of mould in your air conditioner can cause wheezing, watery eyes, coughing, rashes or hives. The great news is that a little regular maintenance is all it will take to reduce the risk of exposure.
Regular AC maintenance will also make your air conditioner last years longer. Some forms of maintenance can be done on your own. For everything else, call the professional team at Siv Air.
Your Air Conditioner Needs More Than Clean Filters
Cleaning and replacing aircon filters is something many Cairns homeowners know how to do themselves.
Before you clean your aircon’s filters, ensure that your air conditioner is turned off. Once it is safe to do so, remove the filter, and use a vacuum attachment to clean the dust off of them. If they are washable, simply rinse them under the tap or hose. Allow them to dry thoroughly before placing them back into the air conditioner. If the filter isn’t washable or has sustained damage, it’s time to replace it. This process should be completed every 3 months.
Despite maintaining your air conditioner filters, a thorough, professional clean is necessary every now and again.
The Experts on How to Clean Your Air Conditioner
Every 1-2 years, your air conditioner should be professionally cleaned. It should be noted that if you have a smoker in the home or have pets, the unit will need more frequent cleaning.
When Siv Air arrives to service your air conditioner, we first provide a thorough assessment of what is and is not needed for your unit. Each factor is taken into account and the status is presented to you with recommendations.
If a clean is in order, we will remove the air conditioner cover and filters and take them outside for a thorough cleaning. We will then inspect the evaporator coil for contamination or evidence of icing.
As we begin the cleaning process, a large waterproof bag is placed under your air conditioner to collect the runoff. This helps to prevent any damage to the surrounding area and means your air conditioning unit can stay in place.
We treat the barrel fan, evaporator coils, condensate drain pan, louvers, fan blades, covers, and casing with a tested and safe chemical solution specifically designed to kill microbial contamination and rinse away clean.
Once the solution has had a chance to kill the mould, fungi, and bacteria, we pressure wash all parts of the unit with a specially designed, battery-operated pressure washer until the air conditioner is thoroughly cleaned and 100% safe for use.
A Clean Aircon Is Not the End
Our service doesn’t end when the unit is clean. Siv Air is proud to treat each unit we service with products from Environmental Air Solutions. Locally made here in Cairns, EAS is made with pure Australian tea tree oil. EAS products help inhibit the regrowth of mould spores, fungi, and bacteria on your air conditioning unit. Tea tree oil is noted for its antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.
Once we’ve got your unit cleaned up and mould-treated, we inspect your refrigerant level , ensure your fans operate correctly and check the electrical draw of the unit. Finally, we even inspect your remote controls to ensure they are in proper working order.
Why Should You Have Your Aircon Professionally Cleaned?
1. You’ll breathe easier.
The mould and bacteria that form in your unit become airborne each time it is turned on.
The Hydro process allows us to kill microbes, fungi, and bacteria even in parts of your unit that aren’t serviceable by hand. So in the end, not only will your air conditioning unit be cleaner, but so will the air you breathe in your home.
2. You’ll save on your energy bill and experience cooler air.
Neglecting necessary maintenance will cause a significant decline in air conditioning performance. This will cause energy use (and your bill) to steadily increase.
A dirty air conditioner has to work much harder to cool the air. This costsyou significantly more on your energy bill each month. A clean coil and fan have a higher volume of air passing through them. This means that they will cool the air far more easily. A clean aircon is a happy aircon, and a more environmentally responsible one at that.
An Air Conditioner Service will potentially pay for itself over time on your energy bill.
3. Your unit will work better and last longer.
Any time your air conditioner is running, it’s getting dirty. Thorough air conditioning service is required to keep it running at peak performance and efficiency.
Cleaning your filters is necessary, but it just isn’t enough. Just like your car needs regular oil changes and tune-ups, your air conditioner needs regular professional service.
4. Aircon Cleaning may prevent property damage.
Blocked drains from your air conditioner can cause water leaks. Leaks can potentially damage not only your unit but the surrounding area. In particular, water leaks have even been known to cause electrical shorts that can cause fires.
