General Aircon Servicing vs Aircon Chemical Wash

General Aircon Servicing

General aircon servicing refers to the routine maintenance and cleaning of an air conditioning system to ensure its optimal performance, energy efficiency, and longevity. It is typically recommended to have this type of servicing performed on a regular basis, such as once every three to six months, depending on the manufacturer's recommendations and usage patterns.

During a general aircon servicing, EasyCleanSG’s aircon specialist will perform several tasks to keep the system in good working condition. These tasks may include:

  • Cleaning the air filters: Air filters protect the inside of the aircon unit from pollutants and allergens that are found it the air. Our specialist will remove and clean the air filters or replace them if necessary. Clean filters allow for better airflow and prevent the accumulation of dust and debris in the system.
  • Cleaning the evaporator coils: The evaporator coils is the component that helps to absorb heat from the air inside your home. Our specialist will clean the coils to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that can hinder the system's efficiency. Clean coils help improve the cooling capacity and energy efficiency of the air conditioner.
  • Clearing the indoor drainage pan and pipe: Drainage pan collects condensation that drips off from evaporator coil within the aircon system. Water is then directed through a pipe down the drain/discharged outside your house. Our specialist will check and clear the drainage pan and pipe to ensure it is not blocked. A blocked drain can lead to water leakage and potential damage to your aircon.
  • Testing system performance: Our specialist may perform tests to check the system's overall performance, temperature differentials, and functionality to ensure everything is working as expected.

General aircon servicing helps to maintain the efficiency and performance of the air conditioning system, reduces the risk of breakdowns, extends the lifespan of the unit, and ensures cleaner air quality. It is advisable to hire a qualified and experienced professional for aircon servicing to ensure proper maintenance and avoid any potential damage to the system. 

Aircon Chemical Wash

An aircon chemical wash, also known as an air conditioner chemical cleaning, is a process that involves using specialized cleaning agents or chemicals to thoroughly clean the internal components of an air conditioning system. 

During an aircon chemical wash, the specialist will first dismantle the necessary parts of the air conditioning unit, such as the fan coil unit, filters, and other accessible components. These parts are then soaked or sprayed with a cleaning solution that is specifically designed to remove dirt, dust, grime, and microbial contaminants that may have accumulated over time. 

The specialist will then rinse the components thoroughly to remove any residue and debris.  A high-pressure water jet or vacuum may be used to ensure a more thorough cleaning. Once completed, the specialist will reassemble the unit and perform a test run to ensure it is functioning properly.

Aircon chemical washes are typically recommended for air conditioning units that are heavily soiled, contaminated, or have not been cleaned for an extended period. This service helps to improve the air quality, energy efficiency, and overall performance of the air conditioner. It can also help to eliminate odors caused by microbial growth or stagnant water within the unit.

Please note that aircon chemical washes should only be performed by trained professionals who follow safety guidelines and use appropriate equipment and chemicals. Improper handling or misuse of chemicals can cause damage to the unit or pose health risks. Additionally, regular maintenance and cleaning of air conditioning units can help prevent the need for chemical washes in the first place.
