How often should you service aircond in Malaysia?

Aircon manufacturers will say that regular servicing is important to keep your aircon in good condition. But, how often should you actually service your aircon? Let’s find out.

With daily average temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius in Malaysian cities, our aircons get heavy usage throughout the year. This is especially true now that work-from-home and home-based learning arrangements need to happen more often.

The recommended aircon servicing schedule

The suggested frequency for a typical suburban household in Kuala Lumpur weather is shown below:

IF YOU USE THE AIRCON ALMOST EVERY DAY (or NIGHT)

  • Every 2 to 4 weeks: Clean the air filters
  • Every 4 to 6 months: Regular cleaning
  • Every 8 to 12 months: Chemical cleaning

IF YOU USE THE AIRCON ONCE A WEEK

  • Every 4 to 6 weeks: Clean the air filters
  • Every 6 to 8 months: Regular cleaning
  • Every 12 months: Chemical cleaning

IF YOU USE THE AIRCON ONCE A MONTH OR LESS

  • Every 3 months: Clean the air filters
  • Every 12 months: Chemical cleaning

The schedule above ensures that both the indoor and outdoor units are properly maintained and inspected regularly.

But, as with any electrical appliance, the right frequency to service your aircon can vary depending on many factors, including:

  • Working temperature: how hard does your aircon need to work to get to your set temperature? For example, a large room with large windows can make it easier for cool air to escape. If you always set your aircon to 20 degrees Celsius, you may need service your aircon more often
  • Environment: Do you live in a dusty environment (e.g. on the ground floor near a highway)? Are there lots of bushes and nature growing around your outdoor units, that may clog it up? Are your outdoor units sheltered from the sun and rain? All these factors will cause more dust build-up in your aircon unit, and require more frequent maintenance
  • Age: The older your aircon unit, the more regular servicing it may need, as the parts and seals begin to wear out
