Residential Maintenance

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT – An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure.

Hills Air Conditioning provides maintenance and break down service for all types of residential air conditioning. We recommend that your air conditioning and heating equipment checked and maintained twice a year. We recommend having a preventative maintenance service in the spring before you start using and in the height of summer and in autumn before the fall of winter. Much better to catch a problem before it becomes an expensive breakdown during a heat-wave in summer or a freeze in winter.

On a maintenance service we ensure your air conditioning system is operating to 100%. Following is a general list of requirements we recommend to keep your system in it most effecting order to operate saving you operation cost.

FILTERS Ensure they are clean, installed correctly in the filter frame, ensure that it isn’t broken down letting unfiltered air to pass through into your system.
CONDENSATE  DRAINS Very critical that they are flushed and tested to ensure water is draining away, as these can block up causing a flood, if a ducted or ceiling concealed system it can be extremely costly to repair if your ceilings become flooded out.
ELECTRICAL Ensure all electrical connections are tight to prevent fires and shorting out to your system causing damage to other parts.
ZONEING Ensure your zone damper actuators are opening and closing correctly and ensure you know what the zone ordering is correct.
DUCTING Ensure the ducting is all connected and not leaking air into the ceiling cavity.
REFRIGERATION SYSTEM Ensure that the system has correct refrigerant level, all valve caps are fitted and they are not leaking.
