Preventive Maintenance of Heating and Cooling System in Melbourne Can Save You Money

It is very important that any heating and cooling system in Melbourne be regularly maintained. This prevents unnecessary repairs and system failure and ensures that the systems can operate at peak efficiency. It creates a more comfortable environment and improves the healthiness of the room. Preventative maintenance should be scheduled for every heating and cooling system, particularly for commercial and industrial buildings.

In order to get the most from your HVAC system, it should be well maintained and regularly serviced. It will save you money and energy to have qualified technicians taking care of your air conditioning system. If you want to keep your costs low and get as much value as possible from your system, then you should have skilled technicians working on your system, and they can consider unique factors for your building that could influence the way they care for the system and the kind of upgrades or changes they recommend. A programmed preventive maintenance schedule will greatly benefit your business and your bottom line.

Here is what a program like this may look like (keeping in mind that specific factors may vary from one system or unit to another):


  • Clean and inspect cabinet and coil
  • Clear all obstructions from condensate lines and drain pans
  • Inspect compressor
  • Lubricate and inspect fan motor and fan blades
  • Test refrigeration system
  • Inspect wiring, safety controls, switches and control box


  • Clean and check blower assembly
  • Lubricate belts and replace as needed
  • Clean combustion blower housing
  • Test safety controls
  • Clean and clear drip pan, evaporator coil and condensate lines
  • Inspect heat exchanger
  • Clean and replace air filter
  • Check duct system
  • Tighten and check control box, connections and wiring
  • Check thermostat controls

General Maintenance of Heating and Cooling Systems

Every 1-3 months, the air filters should be inspected to make certain there is no debris blocking up the filter. Every 3-6 months, the air filters should be changed out (or as needed, or as per manufacturer’s recommendation). Filters may need to be replaced sooner during times of extensive use. You can save energy by using clean air filters in your HVAC system, cutting energy usage by up to 15%.

How much you pay for heating and cooling costs will depend on the size of the building or room, how often the unit is used, where you are located, and how old your system is. To give you an idea of preventative maintenance requirements, a single level building using a reverse cycle system with ducts would generally need a 2-3 hour quarterly inspection. If you are using a plant-based system in a larger building, then you may expect a 20-hour maintenance session every quarter. We can provide you with a quote for programmed preventative maintenance for whatever kind of building you have. We will be happy to send one of our technicians to your site to perform an evaluation.

If you keep your HVAC system in great condition, then it will operate more efficiently, providing a comfortable working environment that is safer and healthier. You’ll benefit from energy savings that go straight to your bottom line.
