Installation and Repair Q&A

  1. What is the best aircon brand in Singapore in terms of service and warranty?
    To date, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Daikin, Fujitsu and Toshiba are the leading and most in-demand brands of the air conditioner in Singapore for both residential and commercial structure. Learn more on how to choose the right aircon here.

  2. Should I get an inverter aircon or non-inverter aircon, and what is the difference?
    The difference is in their energy consumption. An inverter aircon has an adaptive compressor motor that makes it a more energy efficient unit since the entire unit is not always at work because the room temperature governs its speed. However, there is the need to take into account other factors including the size of the room and the property’s regulations regarding the installation of inverter aircon.

  3. How long are the warranty period for aircons?
    Most aircon brands offer two-year warranty, which includes repair, cleaning, and check-up.

  4. Is it possible for me to install my own AC?
    We highly discourage doing so, as it may put the AC and the property at risk to irreversible damages. Here is the process on how to install an aircon.

  5. What is the site survey fee for aircon installation quotation for?
    The survey fee, $50, meets the services rendered when you take the survey to help you be informed of what to expect and get an accurate quotation for the installation. However, this fee can be waived if you proceed with the installation application.

  6. Do you still install aircon that was brought from a different store?
    Yes. We work on different brands of aircons including Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, Panasonic, LG, and Daikin.

  7. Do you recommend buying second-hand AC?
    Sure, as long as they are still in good condition. Always have a professional technician check the state of the second hand AC before buying.

  8. Is it possible to repair the AC circuit board, and not replace it?
    Yes, our technicians will be able to save your circuit board if you can have it assessed and repair earlier.

Problem Q&A

  1. How often should aircon be cleaned?
    At least aim to have your aircon cleaned three times a year, especially if it is being used constantly. It is also recommended to clean the filter every two weeks.

  2. Why is the AC not cooling the room anymore?
    The reason can be due to different issue including the accumulation of dirt causing the compressor and evaporate coils to underperform or something could be broken and needs replacing. The cause behind this aircon not cooling the room can be identified through a comprehensive inspection of the unit.

  3. What is the role of the purifying filter and how often should it be changed?
    The filters are installed in the unit to ensure that the aircon produces clean air that is free of impurities. And since these features are meant to filter the air, they trap the pollutants and thus need to be changed routinely (after every six months).

  4. What is the best temperature setting for my aircon?
    For energy-efficiency, while retaining comfort, you can set it not lower than 22 degrees Celsius.

  5. Why can’t I lower the temperature of my aircon?
    The problem could be with the thermostat that is faulty or needs recalibrating. On the other hand, the issue could be due to particles blocking the condenser hence causing the unit not to produce enough cold air to cool the room.

  6. Does the air conditioner pose health risks and advantages?
    Dirty aircons may result in respiratory problems, while a well-functioning aircon simply contribute to a more comfortable living condition.

  7. Why does my AC make weird sounds?
    The modern ACs are designed to run with the least noises. If your aircon is making sounds, then that is a sign of a problem that can range from a loose fan to an overworked or overheating compressor. You should have the unit checked as soon as possible.

  8. My aircon smells bad, what could be wrong?
    This could be caused by a lot of things, including insects getting stuck inside the unit, and molds forming due to accumulated dirt.

  9. Is it normal for my aircon to leak water?
    Leaking water is a sign that the unit needs cleaning. The problem is often attributed to dirt particles that accumulate in the unit causing the evaporator coils to freeze and produce water. However, the issue can also be due to any other reason hence the need for it to be inspected and necessary repairs done by our technician. More tips here.

  10. Why does my aircon turn on and off by itself?
    This happens to aircon that have severely clogged air filter. The build-up of frost causes the AC to shut on and off randomly.

  11. Is the formation of ice on the condenser pipes normal?
    If you note any ice formation on the pipes, then that is a sign of leaking refrigerant that is causing a dip in the temperatures. Therefore, you should have your aircon services as soon as possible.

  12. Why is my aircon control unresponsive?
    You can check your circuit breaker and restart it from there. If it still does not work, make sure to contact a specialist right away.  

  13. What should I do when my aircon unit does not automatically restart even after pressing the power button?
    Give it a few minutes before turning it back on; sometimes, it the unit’s systems that are on a “defence or self-preservation” mode trying to protect the AC from further damage.

  14. Why do I get dust in my air conditioner?
    Dust is everywhere, and they strangely find ways to accumulate wherever. The aircon is definitely a great target for dust accumulation due to its constant air circulation. The dustier the place is, the dustier the aircon will get, as well.

  15. Do I always need to have the fan speed set to high?
    That is not necessary. You can reduce the fan speed once the ideal room temperature is achieved so that you help trap the cold air and reduce the amount of work the unit will do.

  16. Can I still move my aircon to a new location?
    Yes, and we can assist you in making this process smoother and safer.

  17. Do I still need aircon servicing if the routinely clean the filters?
    The aircon servicing is essential because the filters are part of the many other elements that account for a complete and functional air conditioning unit. The fan coils, condenser, and compressor, as well as the filter all, work collectively, and if one is faulty, the entire unit starts to malfunction.

  18. How do I ensure my air conditioner works efficiently?
    The key is to have it cleaned constantly and to never overwork it by always maxing up its cooling settings.  

  19. Should my aircon system turn off by itself?
    It should if you have pre-set it to do this based on a particular room temperature or time; otherwise, it should not turn off by itself if that is not the case.

Just last weekend, my parents told me that the air-conditioner at our old house broke down. It was the hot time, so we needed to fix the unit because I wouldn't want my parents to feel uncomfortable. I was away for the weekend, so I decided to book online. To my surprise, I got a schedule and it was for tomorrow. The guy got to our old home removed and replace the old filters and repaired the lines. My mom was relieved that there's an AC at home to fight off the heat more

We were on a visit at our farmhouse in the countryside this summer and guess what happened? Our AC broke down. Before we could say that our holidays were spoiled, I immediately requested an aircon contractor for an emergency aircon repair. It was really difficult for them to reach us as we were on the other corner of the city but they came, fixed the problem and didn’t even ask for a lot of money. No wonder AS Aircon Servicing got a well-deserved name in the more
