Air Conditioner and Heater Service & Preventative Maintenance
Quick Air is dedicated to ensuring that your air conditioner or heater is always working at its peak performance, and that can be done by having an experienced licensed technician perform preventative maintenance and service on your unit. We treat all our customers as new and have them quickly booked in for preventative maintenance or regular service to ensure that the efficiency is maintained.
Regular servicing of your heating and cooling unit 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 Quick Air, we're all about customer satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on our workmanship. Air conditioners lose their original efficiency if not regularly serviced by an experienced technician. On average 90% of the units that haven't had preventative maintenance service have reported having ongoing issues. We want to take great care of your air conditioners or heaters, 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 needs to be conducted by an experienced technician. The best time to get a preventative maintenance service 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 outweighs the cost of our service and 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 warranty claims. Also, a licensed technician must provide the service and maintenance on your new unit, for the duration of your warranty, or the warranty may be invalidated by the original equipment manufacturer. Quick Air has same day bookings available, call us on 1300 730 896.
Can a regular service of your air conditioner or heater prolong the life?
It becomes self-evident that regular maintenance prolongs the life of the unit and minimises the likelihood of an early breakdown. All Quick Air's suppliers and well-known brands are consistent in their recommendations for preventative maintenance service for the same reasons we have outlined above. Quick Air 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.

An air conditioner's compressor, filters, coils and electrical components require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. A gradual decline in performance and efficiency is a very common after-effect of neglecting regular preventative maintenance of your unit. We like to think of Quick Air's service and 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.
