Air Conditioning Servicing



Caring for your Air Conditioning unit

Air conditioning maintenance is always based on individual use, but in general you should check filters once a fortnight and replace the batteries in your remote control (where applicable) once a year. At the same time check the outdoor unit is clear of leaves, shrubs or dirt build up. To clean, simply brush or hose the outdoor coil. Please read the filter section below for more information.


The primary purpose of filters is to protect the indoor coil from dust build up which could reduce the overall performance of the air conditioner. It is important to regularly check and clean your filter. The majority of service calls are due to a dirty or blocked filter and in most cases a service fee is charged even if the air conditioner is under warranty.

Most air conditioners in the split range now have a specially treated additional filter that traps fine pollens etc which greatly helps people suffering from allergies.

Air conditioning maintenance is just one simple fortnightly operation. Because the air filter in any air conditioner screens out dust and pollen particles, it should be removed regularly and washed. This simple operation is covered in the individual unit's instruction manual.

All filters have a limited life span and will need replacing as over time they lose their dust holding capabilities. We recommend replacing the filter in a ducted system yearly and in a split system every two years.

Air Conditioning Service & Maintenance

Peninsula Air Conditioning provides air conditioning service and maintenance for all air conditioning systems they have installed. We also offer this service for Daikin air conditioning systems that were installed by others.
Airconditioning General Service

It is recommended that your air conditioning system is maintained on a regular basis, whether it be a split air conditioner, multi split air conditioner or ducted air conditioner. We recommend your air conditioning system is serviced at least once a year, depending upon the environmental conditions at your location. However, a service prior to the summer and winter season would ensure your air conditioning system would be in top working order for the times you need it most.

If we have recently installed your air conditioning system, we will contact you approximately 1 year after installation for your first General Service unless you have requested otherwise.

An airconditioning service takes approximate half an hour to an hour.
