If your unit has an easily resolved minor problem that doesn’t require parts, coolant or gas our technician will attempt to conduct air conditioner repairs in this appointment.
Repairing minor air conditioner problems can prevent major difficulties or breakdowns of your unit’s primary components, also when your unit starts to experience breakdowns regular annual servicing should be conducted to maintain the condition of unit and hopefully prevent further breakdowns.
Common parts that can be replaced on a split air conditioning unit:
• Fan motor
• Fan blade
• PCB boards (indoor/outdoor/controller/power)
• Remote signal receiver
• Indoor sensor
• Condenser coil
• Metring device or an expansion valve
• Evaporator coil and blower
• Chemical refrigerant

Should I Fix or Replace my Air Conditioner?
If your air conditioning unit’s problem can’t be resolved immediately upon diagnosis, we will confirm if parts are available and present you with the best quote options before proceeding with any air conditioning repair work.
We may need to source new parts for your air conditioner, so it’s worth considering the age and the brand of your unit when making the decision as to whether it’s more cost effective to fix or replace it.
Things to consider when making the air conditioner repair or replacement decision that is best for you include:
Air Conditioner Age
The absolute maximum lifespan of an air conditioner is 15 years, the official lifespan of an air conditioner is 10 years.
Air conditioner manufacturers’ are only required to keep spare parts for units for 10 years. So the consideration to repair or replace also becomes a question if parts are available as well.
Models that were more popular selling for a certain manufacturer tend to be available longer.
The older an air conditioner is, the less efficiently it runs. New models can be up to 60% more efficient – a saving on heating and cooling costs that quickly adds up in the long run. Depending on how much you use you air conditioner, in a short amount of time a new system could pay for itself.
Overall Unit Condition
If your air conditioner has required repair/replacement of multiple or major parts on numerous occasions, it may be in your best interest to replace the unit. Replacement is often best for older air conditioners that may require discontinued parts.
For example, if your old unit has a coolant leak, then repairing the leak, adding more refrigerant and replacing the compressor (which often give out not long after fixing a leak) can cost more than replacing the entire unit with a new, lower end air conditioner.
Genuine Repairs For Brands
We know that your air conditioner is a considerable investment to you. Therefore, we only use quality, genuine branded parts for ducted or split system air conditioning repairs.
Our industry experience has shown that generic parts are inferior, often don’t fit properly, and are likely to cause more breakdowns in the future.
Air Conditioner Warranty
There is no warranty offered on air conditioner repairs whereas a new unit you secure a five year manufacturer’s warranty and Safe & Sure’s two year installation warranty.
This means it’s also worth considering the number of components that need replacing and the cost vs purchasing a new unit.
