What is the difference between aircon cleaning and aircon servicing? Should we request for aircon servicing or aircon cleaning. In Singapore, aircon cleaning and aircon servicing are used loosely and inter-changeably by layman. Let’s examine closer what is the difference between aircon Cleaning and aircon servicing.
Technically, aircon cleaning refers to simple cleaning of aircon filter and drainage and sometimes flushing the aircon fins with water which can easily be performed by the home owners. It does not include the performance of the following:
- Aircon chemical washing where chemical solution is applied to the aircon system;
- Aircon steam cleaning where jet of heated steam is sprayed on the aircon system;
- Aircon overhauling where aircon system is dismantled to their individual parts and wash thoroughly with chemical solution; and
- Examining choked drainage pipes and refrigerant pressure.
On the other hand, aircon servicing refers to more extensive and intensive cleaning which involves the examination of choked drainage pipes and refrigerant pressure as well as the performance of aircon chemical wash and aircon steam cleaning. Sometimes, a complete aircon overhaul may be performed.
Aircon cleaning is superficial washing while aircon servicing is deep cleansing of the aircon system. The objective of aircon servicing is to clean the aircon system thoroughly and remove stubborn dirt from it to boost the performance of the aircon. Aircon servicing is not cheap and therefore it is often performed when required or every 2 to 3 months. Aircon cleaning should be performed every month.
Examination of Drainage Pipes and Refrigerant
Some aircon professionals may cut corners during aircon servicing and skip the examination of drainage pipes and refrigerant. Before you sign any package or contract with an aircon service provider, please make sure you confirm with the service provider that the aircon servicing includes the examination of drainage pipes and refrigerant.
