Why Service your Air Conditioning System?
- Increases efficiency and air flow
- Eliminates bacteria, viruses, mould & odours
- Helps minimise breakdowns and costly repairs
- Improves and maintains your air quality
- Reduces running costs
- Prolongs the life of your air conditioner
- Maximises heat exchange through the coil for greater efficiency
- Removes stains and odours from cigarette smoke
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions due to increased efficiency
- Helps prevent drain blockages (water damage inside)
Health Benefits of Air Conditioning Service:
Allergies? Fatigue? Is Your AC Making You Sick??
Split air conditioning systems solely recirculate the air within a room and do not directly incorporate any fresh outdoor air within their operation. Your indoor air quality is therefore managed by the indoor unit acting as the air filtration system for that room or space.
You are breathing whatever is being circulated through your AC – so if your AC is not clean, you are breathing contaminated air that could make you sick.
Over time, contamination of not only the dust filters but also the associated components like the barrel fan and coil will occur as the filters are not 100% effective in filtering all particles from the air that passes through the system. This contamination leads to inefficient operation, higher running costs, higher probability of breakdowns, and poor air quality.
The barrel fan in particular has a very large surface area which allows build-up of contamination reducing its ability to move air efficiently while also continually distributing this contamination throughout a room. The coil facilitates heat transfer which, when not clean, prevents efficient operation.
Dust, dead skin cells, dust mite allergens, chemical contaminants and other particles will accumulate on these components. With the addition of moisture that is produced by operating your AC, the ideal environment is created for the growth of bacteria and other micro-flora like yeasts, moulds, fungi and viruses. The quality of air flowing over these components is therefore significantly reduced over time posing numerous health risks and producing unpleasant musty odours.
Health Impacts of NOT Servicing your Aircon:
The health issues associated with operating a contaminated air conditioning system are widely recognised by medical and scientific experts, including CSIRO and the past president of the Australian Medical Association Dr Kerryn Phelps.
Associated health issues can include the following:
Aggravation of, or actually development of:
- Other respiratory problems
- Allergic reactions
- Skin & eye irritations
- Sinus irritation
- Cold and flu like symptoms
- Suppression of the immune system
- Other long term serious illness and infection
Operation Efficiency Benefits of Servicing your Aircon:
Is Your AC Not Cooling As Well As It Used To?

The efficiency of an AC unit is progressively reduced due to contaminant clogging leading to higher power consumption and increased strain on mechanical parts. A contaminated unit is more likely to experience mechanical faults or corrosion than a regularly maintained unit.
As operation efficiency is reduced, the room occupant will naturally attempt to dial up more cooling/heating power from the unit by adjusting remote control settings, therefore using even more electricity.
Hot Air Cool has developed cost effective solutions to the twin problems of maximising air quality and promoting efficient energy use of air conditioning systems. Operation of a regularly serviced AC unit has proven to increase its operating life.
Air Conditioning Service in the Commercial Sector:
Healthy Work Environment = Happy Employees = Increased Productivity
With an ever increasing recognition of Occupational Health & Safety concerns, maintaining good indoor air quality in commercial premises is paramount to ensuring a healthy working environment is provided.
A contaminated air conditioning system can lead to multiple health problems due to occupant exposure to bacterial, fungal, dust mite allergen, and other microscopic particles within the air. The link between poor indoor air quality and loss in productivity due to decreased staff efficiency, increased employee sick days and overall reduced occupant wellbeing, is well documented.
Other primary concerns for commercial operations include the need to optimise energy use and minimise the cost of providing air conditioning over time. Our technology can assist in the more efficient and hygienic management of your AC systems. We can provide an ongoing maintenance pressure cleaning service, which at the same time prolongs the life of an AC system and helps avoid premature product replacement. We would be pleased to discuss our proven technology and service approach in detail, and perhaps point the way for you to increase efficiencies in long term AC management.
