Having an air conditioner in a rental property can be a great asset for rentability and maximising rental income. An air conditioner, however, is also an appliance that does require some maintenance. Undertaking regular annual maintenance helps to:
- Maximise energy efficiency
- Improved air quality and temperature control
- Reduce potential allergens, mould and bacteria
- Extend the service life of the unit.
For your standard split system air conditioning units, servicing means terminal screw inspection, temperatures recorded, cleaning of filters and coils, debris removal, covers removed and cleaned, internal components inspected for damage, wear and tear, vermin, drain flush and test.
We have great relationships with air conditioning suppliers should you wish to look into getting a new air conditioner for your rental property. We also have some great deals with our suppliers on an air conditioning service, with average service costs only around $110+GST. With the cost of a new unit for a lounge/living area being close to $3000, it’s worth the investment in maintenance to reduce issues and extend the lifespan of the unit.
Don’t hesitate to get in contact with our property management team if this is something you’d like us to arrange!
