Split System Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips

Split system air conditioners are simple appliances. They rarely fail, but internal components become damaged, worn and dirty over time. This affects performance and can lead to breakdowns.

You can prevent major problems by keeping an eye on the system between yearly maintenance appointments. At regular intervals you should:

  • Clean away leaves, foliage and debris from the outdoor unit
  • Turn the system off at the breaker and use a hose to clean the outdoor unit
  • Check the air filter to see whether it needs cleaning
  • Clean the air filter using a hose
  • Silent operation
  • Filters dust and allergens 
  • Run your air conditioner’s built-in self-cleaning function

Build ups of dust, dirt and leaves can cause serious issues for split system air conditioning. These problems all cause your air conditioner to work harder, which puts strain on the system and can lead to breakdowns. It’s important to keep the outdoor unit cleaned and make sure any nearby trees and bushes are trimmed back.

We recommend checking and cleaning your air conditioner every few weeks during summer, but you may need to service it more often if it’s installed in a commercial space.

Split System Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips

Martel Electrical offers expert advice and can help you select the best air conditioner for your home, budget and lifestyle. We do this by checking things like the size of the room, placement of windows and doors, how you use the space, and the size of your family.

This helps us make recommendations about the right sizing and placement for your air conditioner. A system that’s too small will struggle to cool or heat the room, while an oversized system won’t be as energy efficient.

There are lots of factors that help us specify the right size air conditioner for your home. As a rule of thumb, we recommend the following:

How to Use an Air Conditioner while Saving on Your Power Bill

Air conditioners can be power-hungry appliances. The best thing you can do to save on your electricity bill is to ensure you’re using the right system for your home.

As your air conditioning Brisbane Northside specialists, Martel can also make recommendations on how you can save on your power bill. We typically recommend things like:

  • Closing curtains and blinds during the middle of the day
  • Avoid using the oven, stove or any appliance that produces heat
  • Set the thermostat to 24C
  • Use timer functions to control when the unit turns on and off
  • Close doors and windows to keep the cool air in
  • Invest in newer technologies, such as inverter air conditioners

It’s also a good idea to turn your air conditioning on earlier in the day, rather than waiting for the house to heat up. This way, your conditioner doesn’t need to work as hard to cool the space. The system can then be turned off at night to save energy.


How often should I clean the filter in my air conditioner?

The air filter in a split system air conditioner should be cleaned every 3-6 months. The filter will be cleaned during your annual maintenance appointment, but you can also clean it yourself in between professional services.

What temperature should I set my air conditioning to?

We recommend setting your air conditioner to 23C-24C during the summer, and 18-20C in the winter.

Canstar Blue found that air conditioners consume about 10% more energy for every degree that the temperature is reduced in summer. Setting your thermostat to 24C offers a good balance of comfort and efficiency. You can further improve the effectiveness of your air conditioner by shutting curtains, closing external doors and windows, and by using built-in energy saving functions.

How much does it cost to run an air conditioner?

Research from Canstar Blue shows that it costs approximately $155-$396 to run a split system air conditioner in North Brisbane each year. The actual cost of running your air conditioner depends on the temperature settings, how you use the system, and factors such as home insulation.

Talk to Martel about split system air conditioning installation Brisbane. We can specify a system that provides maximum comfort while looking after your budget.

How many years does a split system air conditioner last?

It’s common for split system air conditioners to last 10 years. High quality units from brands like Daikin, Fujitsu and Mitsubishi can last 15+ years with regular maintenance.

You can extend the life of your air conditioner by cleaning the air filter regularly, booking a yearly maintenance appointment, and keeping the outdoor condenser clear of debris (such as fallen leaves).

Is it better to repair or replace my air conditioner?

It’s often more economical to repair a split system air conditioner. If the unit is older than 10 years, or if it frequently needs major repairs, it may be time to consider replacing it instead.

Older air conditioners can be difficult to find parts for, and they may break down more often. When this happens, it is cheaper in the long run to replace the unit with something newer and more energy efficient.
