How is the
in your Home or
Did you know that poorly maintained Air Conditioning systems are contaminated with grime, dirt, mould, grease and other pollutants on the coils and filters? This does not only increase your energy bill but also greatly affects the air quality which your family breathes by circulating dirty and unhealthy air!
Even though not always visible to the human eye, mould and bacteria definitely lives in your air-conditioning system, and often at worrying quantities.
How can this affect your
health and your system?
Grime, dirt & mould polluting and affecting the air which you breathe.
Contaminates blocking the coil, preventing sufficient and healthy airflow.
Blocked filter due to dirt, dust and harmful contaminates, causing blockages and unhealthy air.
Air-Con NEW again
Regular maintenance on your air conditioning system is integral to maintaining its efficiency. The various parts of the system requiring steady maintenance are the filters, coils, and fins.
When systems are regularly maintained they are thoroughly sterilised and have the dirt and debris that builds up throughout the various parts and filters removed. This is especially important for individuals or their family members with allergies or who have asthma.
Make sure your air condition received a complete maintenance every time guide.
Use this checklist to help you understand the critical task involved during maintenance.
Did you receive a report that looks like this from your last visit by your tech, were all options explain to you, did they miss anything and have to come back?
Many service technicians overlook the critical parts during maintenance, leave hidden surprises unfixed, and only to realise when you turn on your systems during that Hot summer day or cold winter night…
Common defects we find are:
- Blocked drain
- Dirty coils
- Blocked pumps
- Leaking and collapsed ductwork
- Zone motors not functioning
- System drawing too much electronic due to block coil air circulation
The list goes on…
If you’re considering getting your system maintenance or you’re the DIY hero in the family…
Wash indoor covers & panels
Remove the filter and covers, take the cover out and wash them thoroughly with jet machine.
Examine and clean air filtration
Clean or replace filters. Wash it, dry it and reinstall it.
Inspect indoor coil
Check condition for any mold, dirt and grime, that can cause heat exchange failure, preventing the indoor fan coil from cooling.
Inspect the Indoor and outdoor drainage
Visually inspect drain is clean and free from debris, & it has good flow to prevent water leaks. Test the drain with water
Test electrical connections and circuit
All connections are tightened and safe, and ensure that the isolation switch is correctly operating. Ensure that the main power cable is concealed and insulated; if damaged or not insulated make recommendations.
Clean blower wheels (if necessary)
Inspect blower wheel cleanliness, if blower wheel consist of dirt and grime build up it requires cleaning. Make recommendations for an Eco Clean.
Calibration of your thermostat
Monitor thermostat operation and test all modes: fan on, cool, heat, and emergency heat to ensure correct operations
Measure air flow & monitor defrost operation
Measure for correct airflow, measure temperature difference across coil. Insert temperature Airflow meter in return plenum and in supply plenum’s
Inspect the ducting
Check for major leaks, plenum connections at the indoor fan coil, duct connections, fittings (BTO, Y-piece etc.) are not damaged.
Inspect fan coil & condenser mounting level
Check condenser is level to ensure that the compressor operations are not affected. Fan coil is level, as unbalanced coils will affect operations, and shorten life.
Condensate pump, if applicable.
Test operations, check pump is clean and free from debris. If blocked make recommendation for pump clean refurbishment.
Test zone motors (if applicable)
Test operation of zone motor dampers to ensure they are closing and opening correctly. If not operating correctly make recommendations.
Test condition of pipe work, insulation.
Visually inspect that all copper piping and insulation is in good condition and not damaged. Damaged insulation can have an effect on a system performance.
Monitor refrigerant pressures
Test and record refrigerant pressures. Inspect refrigeration circuit conditions of the condenser and evaporator coil as well as visual inspection for refrigerant leaks.
Check interconnecting services (Flares)
Run systems on heating cycle. Use Big Blue spray to cover flare connection and check for leaks.
Test voltage and amperage draw, to ascertain that your A/C unit is not overdrawing current and wasting power.
Test starting capabilities
Check the compressor amps with your clamp on the amp meter, check the data tag on the equipment to ensure that they are within factory specs. If reading not in spec, make recommendations.
Test reversing valve functions
Make sure reversing valve and coil valve functions are operating correctly. If not operating correctly make recommendations.
Test safety controls (Isolator & Breaker)
Check to make sure that the breaker and isolator are correct size. Check the wiring, and that there is not any water inside the isolator. If the isolator is defective, make recommendations.
Inspect outdoor condenser & coil
Check inside condensing unit for any infestations of vermin or insects. Wash outdoor condensate coil.
Check condenser air circulation
Check that the condenser has no obstruction, clear to allow good air flow. There must be sufficient room in front for condenser for air circulation.
Coat condenser with fresh paint (if required)
Check condenser exterior is in good condition

How does Maintaining & cleaning your systems SAVE YOU?
The biggest “waster” of electricity is your air conditioning system. Because most air conditioners are not maintained properly, homeowners are wasting precious electricity and paying the utility company way more than they should! Wouldn’t you rather put that money in YOUR pocket?
An Alliance Maintenance and Cleaning service is recommended for your system annually, to keep it in top operating condition. Cleaning is an integral part of your regular service completed by our team. It is a unique service to fully restore critical parts of your air conditioner back to new.
Covers and filters removed from the interior unit, and washed separately.
The drain tray and drain pipe are checked, coil is soaked, and left to activate the chemical agent.
Fan coil is carefully washed first with water, then sanitised with microbial solution.
Makes sure the coil is free from grime, dirt, mould and other pathogens.

Serviced by a professional
Air conditioning should always be service and installed professionally qualified technician. If serviced improperly, an unsafe heater can lead to house fires or release air pollutants directly into your home, which can lead to poor indoor air pollution and have an impact on your health. These air pollutants include carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is both colourless and odourless and high levels of intoxication can be extremely dangerous. The level of air pollutants varies depending on multiple factors including proper use of your heater and how often it is serviced. Carbon monoxide has many effects, but most prominent are its ability to restrict your oxygen levels and impair thinking and reflexes.
All you have to do is tune-up your air conditioning system once a year. That’s it! By cleaning contamination build up, you can reduce Energy Consumption up to 30%. That’s real money in your pocket, and you don’t even have to change the setting on your thermostat!
