Frequently asked questions

for air conditioning and electrical services

Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

Air conditioning units, especially older ones, which have not been properly maintained can be costly to repair. Occasionally, it may be more cost effective to replace the air conditioning system than it is to fix it, however, we recommend an onsite inspection so our qualified staff can provide expert advice on the most cost-effective solution to your air conditioning problems.

What does ARC approved mean?

Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) administers arctick_logorefrigerant handling licences
and refrigeration trading authorisations to air conditioning companies on behalf of the Australian Government.

Why use an ARC authorised business?

An ARC authorised tradesman meet government environmental standards to ensure no potentially damaging substances, such as Fluorocarbon, found within air conditioners can harm the environment.
Secondly, ARC authorised businesses and technicians must work within legally mandated standards to give you piece of mind.

How often should I service my air conditioner?

Most manufactures require air conditioning systems to be serviced annually to maintain the products warranty.

What ducted air conditioning do you install or service/repair?

Maestro Trade Services can install and service most makes and models of ducted air conditioning, Brisbane. If you’re after professional advice on a new system, we can help you design, supply and install the right system for your home.

What is an air conditioning major service?

Major service removes the harmful bacteria, dirt and mould that builds up over time within hard to reach places, such as the fan barrel, coil and filters, which will:

  • prevent harmful bacteria from being released into the air,
  • help extend the life of your unit, and
  • keep running costs to a minimum.

What is R22 refidgerant?

HCFC-22 (aka R22) has been commonly used in residential heat pump, air conditioning and refrigeration systems since the 1990s following the phase out of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in developed countries in 1995.

As releases of R22, including from leaks, contributes to ozone depletion, Australia has a legislated phase out of HCFC, in line with its obligations under the Montreal Protocol. Australia will largely phase out the import of HCFCs from 2016, apart from 2.5 ozone depletion potential tonnes a year (equating to around 45 tonnes of R22) which will be permitted until 2029 to service equipment.

If your system is in need of repair and has R22 as it refrigerant type, we recommend an onsite inspection with our qualified staff and they can provide expert advice on the most cost-effective solution to your air conditioning problems.
