1. Filters

The number 1 maintenance task required is replacing or cleaning your air-conditioners filters.

By having dirty filters, especially where a filter becomes blocked or clogged this can severely impact the system. Dirty filters blocks the standard air flow causing your unit to work harder than its supposed to, this is also where you can see an increase in power consumption.

By replacing or cleaning these filters, your power consumption can reduce from 5-25%.

Now your question do I clean or replace my filters?

This question does depend on which unit you have as filters are available in a mixture of types which all have different efficiencies. Some types of filters can be reusable therefor can be cleaned regularly. However other filters are disposable so will need to be replaced.

How often should I Clean my Filters?

Here at Voltora Industries we recommend cleaning filter’s every 6 weeks during peak cooling seasons, and then 3 monthly during the remainder of the year, however this all does depend on your needs and your home. For example, if you have pets or run your air con constantly, we recommend cleaning these more frequently. If you barely use the system and the unit is in a clean environment, you may not need to clean them as often.

2. Condensation Drains

The condensation drains on your air conditioner can become clogged, if you air conditioner is blocked or clogged the unit will stop reducing the Humidity, and in our Brisbane weather reducing humidity is a key factor when we shop for suitable air conditioners for our home.

Drains that aren’t functioning efficiently can cause some severe damage to your walls and carpets.

How can my Drain become blocked?

There are many different reasons as to why your aircon drains become blocked this include but are not limited to: Ants, Wasps, Large Bugs, quality of the air con and drains, age of the system, and unsatisfactory installation.

What should you do if your drain is clogged?

If you see that your drains are blocked, or even notice water dripping from your indoor head unit, please seek professional help as trying to fix this issue yourself could cause more damage. Here at Voltora Industries we can help you clear out your drains and get your system up and running to the highest standard again.

3. Coils

Both your Air Conditioners Evaporator and Condenser Coils can collect dust and debris, this can cause your Air Conditioner to reduce not only the amount of airflow but also the standard and this is where you could get stale smelling air blowing into the house.

Another big point is damaged, or dirty coils can reduce your Units ability to absorb heat, this means your home/ room will take longer to cool to desired temperature and will use significantly more power.

What do I do?

We recommend looking over your coils to ensure the condition is satisfactory at least once per year. However, if your outdoor unit Is placed in a dusty area, a garden or in any position where your mower may flick debris towards the unit we recommend checking your coils every 6 months.

How do I fix a dirty/ damaged coil?

Voltora Industries Specialist suggest you seek professional advice/ services to fix your coils, trying to fix these coils your self can cause further damage to your unit.

4. Yearly Maintenance Check and Service
