Evaporative Cooling Service & Repair Solutions – Canberra & Queanbeyan
Evaporative coolers are a very popular choice in the Canberra and Queanbeyan region for people seeking to comfortably cool their home or business premises during the hot summer months, which are also relatively dry and low in humidity. An attractive benefit of evaporative cooling is that it uses less electricity than reverse cycle air conditioning.
Proactive Air Conditioning provides a wide range of evaporative cooling service and repair solutions to customers in the Canberra and Queanbeyan areas. We work on equipment from all the big brands supplying evaporative cooling, including Bonaire, Braemar, Brivis, Breezair, Celair, Coolair and Rinnai.
Proactive Air Conditioning strongly recommends that an annual service be performed by one of our competent and skilled trade technicians during the October-November pre-summer period every year. Completing the service provides peace of mind in knowing all parts and components of your evaporative cooling have been checked/tested/rectified or repaired before any hot weather arrives. Your ongoing comfort and system’s reliability are what our business is all about.
Reasons to Service Your Evaporative Cooling System in Canberra
There are many positive reasons to service your evaporative cooling system in Canberra.
- Improve air quality – keeping the system (particularly the cooling pads) clean ensures that fresh air (rather than stale, unhealthy air) is circulated throughout your property.
- Improve efficiency and lower power costs – a system operating at peak efficiency uses less electricity and doesn’t need to work as hard (reducing wear and tear on parts).
- Minimise breakdowns – a well-maintained system is less likely to break down (ensuring you stay cool during the hot Canberra summer months).
- Prolong life of system – maintaining any form of equipment prolongs its useful life (evaporative coolers are no exception).
As part of our evaporative cooling service in Canberra, we clean the nozzles, pads and blades in your cooler unit (to remove moulds, bacteria, dust, pollens and mineral build-ups).
Signs That Your Evaporative Cooling System Requires Attention
If you notice any of the following problems or signs, please telephone the specialist evaporative cooling team at Proactive Air Conditioning for assistance and advice.
- System doesn’t start.
- Vents blow warm air instead of cool air.
- An unpleasant odour emanates from the vents (commonly due to water stagnation or mouldy cooling pads).
- Smoke or a persistent burning smell comes from the vents (you should turn off the unit immediately, along with the applicable safety switch in your fuse box).
- A wet patch on your ceiling or a wall (indicates a possible system leak).*
- Water is running down the roof – the source of water appears to be rooftop unit (possible drain outlet problem).*
* Where heavy leaking or flooding is suspected, you should turn off the tap that supplies water to the evaporative cooling unit on your roof.
Proactive Air Conditioning strongly recommends you “drain out” the water retained in your evaporative cooling unit and pipework at the end of each Canberra summer season, or when cooling is no longer required. This retained water has the potential to freeze inside pipework in your roof space during winter, and potentially crack the pipes due to expansion. When the frozen water defrosts as the temperature increases in spring, the water from burst pipework often causes damage to your ceilings and walls as it runs freely from the damaged pipework.
If you don’t know how to “drain out” your evaporative cooling system, simply telephone the Proactive Air Conditioning office on (02) 6239 2345 and one of our office gurus will happily provide assistance and advice.
