Evaporative Cooling Service

And Preventative Maintenance

We recommend that you service your Evaporative Cooler at least once a year. Just like your car your Evaporative Cooler needs to be serviced regularly for enhanced performance and lifetime.

Our experienced technicians deliver maintenance services of the highest standard. They are all accredited in their field of expertise and we strive to ensure all services are carried out to our customer’s satisfaction.

Evaporative Coolers in Melbourne have little in the way of moving parts, meaning there is a lot less that can break. They nonetheless benefit from proper maintenance. An evaporative cooler is a warm and wet environment. It can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mould if neglected too long. It’s a good idea to give it a clean every 12 months. In extreme cases, a neglected evaporative cooler that is very clogged up with dust and leaves can cause a house fire.

In 2017, there were 6 fires in Victoria which were caused by Evaporative Coolers. Energy Safe Victoria released a Press Release stressing the importance of an Annual Service.

An Evaporative Cooling Service annually will ensure your evaporative cooler is operating at its optimum performance. Our comprehensive checklists are designed to ensure you have a thorough service every time.

    What Customers are Saying

    “Great correspondence prior to the installation date, on time installation, no fuzz, no mess, all worked well. A fantastic team who did a perfect job! They even sealed a cracked roof tile which was certainly not in their scope, just as a precaution in case of heavy rain.. don’t know many companies who take customer service that serious. Well done and thanks again!”

    “I had an older air conditioner that needed to be modernized with new zones. Luke did a great job of retrofitting the unit, arrived when he said he would, he was professional and courteous. Luke took the time to walk me through the control panel. Thanks Luke and Plum great experience!”
