This service also forms part of a normal Sanitair premium service if the condenser is located on ground level.

(Unfortunately, due to Workplace Health & Safety laws outdoor condensing units mounted above 2.4 meters cannot be serviced by one man.)

Reading holiday reviews we all can see that many of the negative comments are air conditioning related and are from guests who have experienced poorly working, noisy, leaking or stale smelling air conditioning.  These problems can be worse in the tropics due to the seasonal rain and high humidity which can encourage biological contaminants like mould to flourish.

How much does your air conditioner cost to run?

With energy prices at an all-time high, this is the question on everyone’s minds.

On hot days we all turn on the air-con trying to keep cool, yet some of us don’t due to high energy costs and not knowing exactly how much more it will cost to keep us cool.

How much is it actually going to cost to use your air conditioning?  A lot less than what you might think.


The average reverse cycle air conditioner in a medium sized room (36sqm) costs $0.36 – $0.70 per hour to run on the cool setting.

A domestic ducted air conditioning reverse cycle system draws the most power, using an average $2.45 – $3.45 per hour to run.

It doesn’t have to cost the earth, if you manage it correctly you can keep your house cool by following the Tips on keeping your house cool and using the air conditioner when you need it the most.

The air conditioner coils, if contaminated cannot effectively cool down the air that passes over them resulting in the system working harder and setting the temperature lower to get the desired cooling effect.  This means you will be using more energy to cool the room down and also recirculating the contamination back into the room.

The harder the aircon works, the more energy it will use.  Lowering your temperature setting will increase your energy usage.  Ergon Energy estimates every one degree cooler in the summer months can add 10% to the electricity usage that the air conditioner uses.

See the energy savings you can make by making small changes to your air conditioning temperature settings by using ERGON air conditioner running costs calculator

A Sanitair HVAC Hygienist can effectively remove contaminants and ensure 12 months mould free guarantee on your indoor air conditioning coils.  Saving you money and improving your indoor air quality.  Call your local Licensed Sanitair HVAC Hygienist 1800 130 168.

Queensland Government plan to enforce aircon cap of 26 degrees during hot days.

The weather conditions for summer are expected to be higher than average and heatwaves are a given for Queenslanders.  The government may enforce consumers to keep air conditioning during these HOT summer days set on 26°C to avoid the large-scale blackouts across the region.

Although Government’s Energy Security Taskforce’s Summer Preparedness Plan Brochure states: “ Our power stations are ready to generate 11 445 MW of electricity to meet the peak demands of summer, which is more than the predicted peak demand of 9790 MW”.

The brochure also recommends “During a heatwave, residents may be asked to manage electricity network stress by changing air conditioners to 26 degrees or above and using cooling only in occupied rooms during peak hours. This helps us manage demand and mitigate the risk of load-shedding occurring”

How the plan will be enforced is not clear, limiting power supplies is likely to become a reality a high power usage continues over summer.

The trial for ‘demand management’ scheme is already underway in Victoria, offering consumers incentive payments to volunteer to cut their power in return for credits on the energy bill. The trial scheme scheduled to be launched in December 2017, comes as Australia’s energy market operator revealed both Victoria and South Australia face an increased risk of energy shortfall over the next decade.

Consumers need to be prepared for this summers predicted heat waves and have their air conditioners professionally cleaned by local licensed Sanitair HVAC Hygienists, so that they are more energy efficient and can provide a cooler indoor environment without using as much energy as a dirty air con.

A cleaner air conditioner can improve air flow and energy by up to 30%.  Call your local Sanitair HVAC Hygienist 1800 130 168.
