Air conditioning cooling solutions to keep you comfortable all year round
There’s nothing worse than a faulty air conditioner that can’t keep up when the temperature rises. This is why many people have a preventive maintenance plan in place to avoid costly breakdowns and replacements. Depending on your air conditioner’s brand, age, and frequency of use will determine how often it needs to be serviced.
Sidepost’s experienced and qualified technicians service all types of air conditioners, both for domestic and commercial clients. We’ll thoroughly examine your unit to identify faults such as leaks, blockages or part failures before they escalate. And if something is off, we only use tried and tested solutions to ensure your unit operates like the well-oiled machine that it is!
What happens after a air conditioning service
Your air conditioner is susceptible to a build-up of dirt, dust and grime, which can impede its performance and lead to expensive repairs. Once we’ve conducted our unit inspection, we’ll provide you with a report detailing our findings and future maintenance recommendations. If any immediate problems do need addressing, we’ll give you a repair quote before getting started.
Insured professionals who service all air conditioner types
Whether you have a split system, ducted air conditioner or wall-mounted unit, our team of insured professionals can service it for you. We recognise that everyone’s requirements are unique, i.e. an industrial warehouse will have different cooling needs than a residential home, so we tailor our services to suit your needs. We even offer recurring services and will work with you to create a tailored maintenance plan.
Our standard air conditioner service includes:
- Clean the compressor fins
- Clean filters
- Check gas levels for correct pressure
- Check and clean the evaporator and condenser coils
- Inspect for leaks in the system

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How often should air conditioning be serviced?
A: Even if your ac is running smoothly, we recommend getting it serviced at least yearly. This helps prolong your unit's lifespan by catching any potential issues early, i.e. rusting coils or low refrigerant levels. However, if your unit is used frequently (multiple times a day) or in a dusty area, we recommend it be serviced every six months.
Q: How long does an air conditioner service take?
A: A standard air conditioner service usually takes around 1-2 hours. Times will vary depending on the size and type of unit as well as any issues that our technician may find. It may take less time for older units that we have serviced before as our technician will be familiar with the unit.
Q: How can I prepare for my AC service?
A: Here are 4 simple things you can do to prepare for your AC service:
1. Clear any debris or obstacles that may be blocking the unit, i.e. leaves, furniture etc.
2. Check the area around the unit for any signs of damage, i.e. cracked paving or loose tiles
3. Book a time that is convenient for you and make sure someone will be home to let the technician in
4. Prepare any questions you may have for the technician
Q: Are there any additional costs?
A: No, there are no undisclosed additional costs for our service. If a repair or replacement part is warranted, our technician will provide you with a quote prior to carrying out any work.
Q: What if I'm not happy with the service?
A: At Sidepost, we pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service. If you are not satisfied with the service you have received, please contact us, and we'll do our best to resolve the issue. Our satisfaction guarantee means that you can be confident you're getting the best possible service.
Q: How long do air conditioners last?
A: If your air conditioner has been well-maintained, it can last for 10-15 years. However, it's important to remember that your air conditioner's mechanical parts may eventually become obsolete or unavailable in the marketplace. It may be more cost-effective to replace your unit when this happens.
Q: How do I know if my AC needs to be serviced?
A: 1. Lack of Airflow
2. Water leaks
3. Hot air
4. Unpleasant smells
5. Unusual noises
6. Your room simply isn't cooling down
If you've noticed any of these signs, contact Sidepost’s air conditioning team. Our air conditioning servicing includes inspecting and cleaning your unit. Don't wait until it's too late and your unit breaks down!
Q: Should I replace my 30-year-old air conditioner?
A: Once your air conditioner has extended beyond 25 years, it's time to start thinking about replacing it. Newer units are more energy-efficient and use less electricity, saving you money in the long run. Furthermore, the parts needed to repair an older unit may no longer be available today.
Q: Can I book a recurring ac service?
A: Yes, you can! Our commercial customers generally prefer to do this, as it helps to ensure that their air conditioning units are always in top working condition. Depending on your AC's usage and environment, we'll provide you with a servicing schedule that suits your needs. However, we also provide a recurring service to our residential clients - we aim to accommodate your needs as a customer.
