Why Do I need a Aircon Chemical Wash?

Build up of dust

The build up of dirty particles can restrict airflow into the evaporator coil. Excessive dirt and dust reduces the aircon efficiency and increases overall energy consumption. This can be identified especially if the air from the aircon is puffed out intermittently rather then smoothly. Thankfully, this can be easily be negated by regular chemical overhaul.

Leakage or Choke

Backtray chocking could potentially lead to leakage, this is cause by buid up of dirt and sometimes algae. Aircon with leaking issues could reduce air quality and requires high pressure cleaning to clear off all debris. Users who uses the unit consistently are advised to clean at least once a year

Water Leak

Drainage pipe choke, choke back tray, condensation of copper pipe & loose connections of water pipe could all lead to water leakage in your aircon units. An Aircon Chemical overhaul (Full Chemical Wash) will resolve the choking issues. For other issues like condensation and loose piping will require more in depth investigation and repairs.

Difference between chemical wash and chemical overhaul

Aircon chemical wash simply means the cleaning of a unit with a chemical solution. The motherboard of the fancoil will be wrapped with a water proof material to prevent water damage to the motherboard, an inexperienced technicians might not handle this well. 

Chemical overhaul means a full clean of your unit. The gas will be locked, this will be done by climbing out to the condensing unit and switching it off. Our technicians will then proceed to do a full dismantling of the fancoil and this allows us to clean it thoroughly on both sides! 

The biggest difference? A chemical washing cleans the surface and front end of the fancoil but a chemical overhaul cleans the whole fancoil!
