What’s Hiding Under Your Hood?

When you last cleaned your car did you service under the Hood?

When you wash and polish your car you probably also vacuum the inside and clean the windows. How often do you open the hood and provide maintenance and cleaning under the hood, if you are like most people it would be hardly ever.

Sometimes car owners are able to carry out simple maintenance like, topping up fluids, changing or cleaning filters.  Usually a higher level of training, tools and experience are required to maintain critical parts and minimise the risk of damage when servicing.

Your air conditioner is very similar to your car as there are minor maintenance jobs that equipment owners can perform and there are many parts under the hood that require a higher level of training and tools to maintain without causing damage which can incur expensive repair bills.

Licensed Sanitair HVAC Hygienists are professionally trained to clean and sanitise all the hard to get to places and they have specialised equipment and products to make sure the job is done properly and restore your air conditioner to as new condition.

If you have never had your air conditioner professionally cleaned then you could be in for some surprises.

Call Sanitair Today and Breathe Clean Air – Freecall 1800 130 168. We have technicians located across Australia in every state and territory.

Aircon Energy Saving Tips

Simple Aircon Energy Saving Tips

  • Air Con setting:  Set your air conditioner on 25°C and you will save $$$$$. The higher your setting the more money you will save.  Visit the Ergon Energy Calculator and see how much you can save.
  • Insulation: If the room you are trying to cool is not insulated, your air conditioner will have to work harder to cool the room down.  You will have to set your air con on a lower temperature to get the room to the desired temperature.  You may have to set on 20°C to get the indoor temperature to 24°C and this will cost you money $$$
  • Close Doors and Windows:  It goes without saying, close the doors and windows to stop the cool air from escaping and to stop the heat air coming into the room
  • Use the fan:  If you have a ceiling or floor fan use it to move the air around the room.
  • Cleaning your air conditioning: Cleaning the filters alone can save you up to 10% on energy costs.  Having the coils professionally cleaned will save up to 28% on energy costs, call your local Sanitair HVAC Hygienist 1800 130 168.   Not only will you save money but you will improve your indoor air quality.

Your air conditioner temperature impacts your power bills and is key to keeping your energy costs under control.   See the case study below:

 

However, if your indoor air conditioner coils are blocked with dust, dirt, DNA, pet dander, cooking oils, mould or bacteria it will work harder to cool the room.  If you haven’t had a professional Air conditioning clean on your system in the last 3 years, you are more than likely using more energy than you should.

The law catches up with Sanitair Townsville!

North Queensland’s $4M Floating Police Station gets the full premium Sanitair service and is once again fit for duty.
Commissioned in December 2014 and named the Brett Irwin, in honour of Constable Brett Andrew Irwin who was fatally shot at Keperra in 2007, the vessel is without doubt one of the best-equipped police boats in the country. The Brett Irwin boasts sleeping accommodation for 10 people, a commercial-style galley and holds enough diesel fuel to travel to 700 nautical miles at cruising speed – the distance from Townsville to Brisbane.
Todd from Sanitair Townsville said its not every day that you get to spend they whole day in a police station and enjoy the experience. Sanitair has provided their award winning services for police stations before but this was a first for a floating one.
Cleaning and sanitising the air conditioning systems in such a vessel has its challenges, working in confined spaces and being surrounded by a lot of sensitive and expensive equipment. Todd was happy to report that the job was completed on time before the vessel was due to sail again and without incident as expected.
You too can experience the Sanitair award winning service by Free Calling : 1800 130 168 nationwide.

What’s involved in a Sanitair Premium Service?

Sanitair™ Premium Aircon Service

What do you get for your money?

 

  1. A licenced Sanitair™ HVAC Hygienist will travel to your home or business.

All Sanitair technicians are professionally trained, licensed, insured and police checked. Our technicians are courteous, respectful and will leave no mess.

  1. Carry out a Functionality & Operational Test

This is so you know your system and remote control is functioning properly and safe to use.

  1. Removal of Evaporator Cover – Clean & Sanitise

Allows for access to the coils for correct and thorough cleaning of coils and casing.

  1. Low pressure Clean of Evaporator Coils

Removal of bulk and biological contaminants will make your system run more efficiently reducing your running costs by up to 28%. Your aircon will cool better, smell better and deliver healthier air for your family and friends.

  1. Low pressure Clean of Air well & Fan/Blower

Thorough cleaning of the evaporator fan/blower will increase the air flow reducing the time required to condition a room to your desired temperature. Correct cleaning of blower will also remove unwanted noises caused by imbalanced fans resulting in quieter operation. Your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard and therefore will last longer and also add to the operational cost savings.

  1. Condensate Pan & Drain Flush

Correct cleaning with a mix of mechanical and non-toxic & environmentally friendly cleaning solutions will ensure your system will be free of biological contaminants including Mould, Bio-Films and other harmful pathogens. Correct cleaning not only removes biological contaminant but is good insurance against unwanted system leaks that can damage property.

  1. Filter Clean & Sanitise

Cleaning and sanitising of filters should be carried out by home owners every 3 months, but included in a Sanitair premium clean we will degrease and sanitise your filters restoring them to as new condition.

  1. Application of Protectair™ Biological Coil Protection(12 Month Mould FREE Guarantee)

The final part of a Sanitair Premium Service is the application of Protectair™ BCP. This protective treatment will ensure that your evaporator coils are Mould Free for 12 Months and that is our Guarantee. This proprietary formula also has a deodorising effect and increases operational efficiency, saving you further.

  1. Outdoor Condenser Coil Flush.

This service also forms part of a normal Sanitair premium service if the condenser is located on ground level. Even though the outdoor unit has nothing to do with the indoor air quality, the removal of pet dander, grass clippings and dirt also contribute to the further reduction in running costs. (Unfortunately, due to Workplace Health & Safety laws outdoor condensing units mounted above 2.4 meters cannot be serviced by one man.)

Clean Fresh Air and a great VUE!

I am sure you would all agree that blue skies, warm weather, luxury accommodation and beautiful island views from your accommodation or swimming pool can make for a fantastic holiday.  For many of us tropical balmy nights can make it uncomfortable to get a good night’s sleep so when booking accommodation, air conditioning is a must.

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.

Whilst many hotels, motels and resorts do not take indoor air quality and the health of their guests seriously we can happily tell you all, that there is a growing number that do.

You can rest assured if you know that Sanitair has cleaned and sanitised the air conditioning in your holiday accommodation.
