Does My Ducted Air Conditioner Need A Professional Service?
Unsure whether your air conditioner needs a service? Check for the following signs that some routine maintenance is due:
- Your ducted system is making more noise than usual. A loud air conditioner could be the result of broken mechanical components, moving parts touching when they shouldn’t be, or incorrect installation.
- An unpleasant odour is coming through your ducts. Bad smells should be checked by an air conditioning technician immediately. Smoke or burning smells can be a sign of mechanical or electrical malfunction. Mildew, bacteria build-up or dead vermin/insects in the ducts are other causes of bad smells, and must be dealt with by a professional.
- Lower than normal air flow. If you aren’t feeling as much air flow as you used to, you may need to have your air conditioner’s filters cleaned or changed.
- Water is leaking out of the primary internal or external unit. The drainage system could be blocked or broken and a technician will need to clean the system out.
- There is mould in or around your air vents. If you can see mildew, dust or dirt around your ducted air conditioner vents, you may need a technician to clean/replace your system’s filter. A technician will also check the ducting in the ceiling for any splits, and clean out your ducts so you can be sure the air in your home is clean.
- You don’t know when your ducted air conditioner was last serviced, it has been longer than a year since you got it serviced, or you know your unit has never been serviced. Regular cleaning and upkeep is needed to keep your manufacturer’s warranty valid and stop your unit from breaking, so book a service today.
- Someone in your house smokes cigarettes indoors.
If your Brisbane air conditioner is showing any of these warning signs, you shouldn’t wait for a major breakdown to occur.

Risks of a Neglected Air Conditioner
The vast majority of air conditioner problems could be avoided if the units were serviced regularly. Don’t wait until your ducted air conditioner breaks before you take action.
If you don’t have your system maintained, you run the risk of:
- Mould and bacteria being spread through your home’s air. Dirty filters, splits in ducts, and foreign objects trapped in a system can spread contaminated air around your home.
- Excessive power bills & lower heating and cooling performance. One of the biggest problems ducted air conditioning systems experience is leaking ducts. A return duct experiencing only 3% leakage will cause a 5% system capacity loss. Multiple leakages will significantly decrease system capacity and increase air conditioner operating costs.
- Needless unit repairs and replacement. Most of the ducted air conditioners that we fix would not have broken down if they had of been regularly serviced and maintained.
With an annual ducted air conditioning service, Brisbane home and business owners can keep track of the health of their systems.
If you’ve never had your ducts inspected, we offer ducted air conditioning service around Brisbane, so book today!
Tip: If you are moving into a new house with ducted air conditioning, or are having a new system installed on your property, get your installer to book you in for an annual service so you don’t forget.

Does Your Ducted Air Conditioner Need a Major Service?
If your ducted air conditioner is performing poorly and hasn’t been serviced routinely – or at all – a major service may be in order. Our major ducted air conditioning service includes disassembly and cleaning of the major parts – particularly the fan barrel and drain pain – as well as a full duct inspection.
See our air conditioning repairs page for more information.
If you can see significant dirt, mould, debris, or tar build up from indoor smoking, or there is leakage from the outside of your unit, these are all signs that your ducted air conditioner probably requires a more intensive service.
Major services demand more labour than our regular services and additional costs apply.
