Learn More About Air Conditioner Chemical Wash & Cleaning

| Last Updated: June 9, 2021

With regular use your air conditioner will begin to accumulate a buildup of dirt, airborne bacteria and dust in its filters and system which over time will affect its performance and life cycle, if not maintained correctly. In conjunction with affecting your system’s performance, this buildup of dirt, dust and bacteria will also result in poor air quality when the system is in use.

To ensure your air conditioner works optimally for its life cycle and to avoid unsanitary air flow and expensive repairs, it’s crucial to have regular maintenance

Chemical cleaning and chemical washing are the two most effective methods of keeping your system clean and sanitary. Learn more about these cleaning methods below:

Benefits of Aircon Chemical Wash

There are a wide range of benefits from having an Aircon Chemical Wash performed on your air conditioning system. Here are some of these:

1. Chemical washing clears any dirt and dust from your air filter

Filters that are blocked up with dirt and dust will cause unsanitary air to be circulated from your system, as well as limiting the free flow of air causing your system to work under pressure. This can result in poor performance, system break downs and higher energy bills. Chemical cleaning will remove any dirt and dust, improving air quality and allowing your system to work more efficiently.

2. Chemical washing removes blockages and stops your condenser from freezing

As your condenser is involved in the heat exchange of your system, working to cool the air, if this isn’t cleaned to flush any blockages, maintaining cool air flow can be difficult. With chemical washing you can remove any external or internal blockage that is impeding your condenser. By removing any blockages it also helps to stop your condenser from freezing, which is often caused by having either a dirty air filter, blockages in your air ducts or a fan that’s malfunctioning.

3. Chemical washing can identify leaks and other issues

When your system is washed on a regular basis it helps you to identify any issues, such as leaking refrigerant, which is harmful and can lead to health concerns.

4. Chemical washing cleans your system’s evaporator

Your evaporator coils are one of the most integral parts of your air conditioning system. With chemical washing you can ensure that dirt and dust buildup is removed, to avoid your evaporator malfunctioning.

5. Chemical washing checks whether parts are working correctly

When your air conditioning system receives a chemical wash the technician will also check to see that the parts are functioning correctly, such as the thermostat and the blower wheel.

Some of the Cleaning Steps Offered as Part of the Chemical Wash

An Aircon chemical wash is very thorough. It is so effective because it not only involves cleaning, but also checking to see if the main parts to your air conditioner are working correctly.

Here are some of the steps that are offered in an Aircon chemical wash:

  • Chemical washing of air filters, blowers, evaporator coils, condenser coils and parts
  • Checking the operations of the compressor suction, discharge pressure and the motor of the air conditioning blower fan
  • Checking all major electrical connections to see if any loose wires are present
  • Cleaning the air conditioning system’s front covers and panels
  • Checking the air conditioning water drainage pipe and flushing
  • Dismantling and checking the fan coil unit

Aircon Chemical Cleaning vs Aircon Chemical Wash

An Aircon chemical clean and an Aircon chemical wash are both beneficial to your air conditioning system. When comparing the two it’s easy to differentiate the chemical clean as being a good regular service for your system while the chemical wash is a major service, as it’s more comprehensive.

Having a chemical clean undertaken on your air conditioning system involves removing any dirt and dust buildup by spray cleaning, which is ideal to help extend the life cycle of your system. This varies from a chemical wash which includes a far more detailed assessment of how the parts are functioning, chemical washing of the coils, air filters and blowers and dirt and dust removal.

When your air conditioner is new the chemical clean would be suitable for regular servicing, but as it starts to age the more comprehensive chemical wash is more suitable, for optimal system function and sanitary requirements.

Importance Of Servicing Your Air Conditioner

Buying an air conditioner is an investment that adds value to your home and ensures your family remain comfortable in all types of weather conditions. A premium quality air conditioner is generally a large household expense, so it’s important to maintain your system to help avoid breakdowns and keep it running in optimal condition.

If your system is not serviced regularly and has dirt and dust buildup on the components, it can result in these parts malfunctioning, causing unsanitary air to be released, as well as blockages which place your system under pressure. When air conditioning systems experience blockages or additional pressure on the motor and other parts, it can also lead to higher running costs, expensive repairs and your system not being able to cool your home effectively.
