Evaporative Cooling Service and Repair

In the scorching summer heat, there's one hero that keeps our homes cool and comfortable – the evaporative cooler.But what happens when this trusty ally starts blowing warm air, or you notice it's not working as efficiently as before? That's where our Evaporative Cooling Service steps in.

Evaporative Cooler Servicing & Repairs Across Melbourne

You might not realise it, but evaporative coolers accumulate windblown dust and pollen over time.

This accumulation of debris can lead to clogs in the unit, blockage of the filter pads, and potential issues with the pump and water distribution system.

As a consequence, less airflow is circulated throughout the house.

To maintain a cool and comfortable indoor environment during the summer months, it’s essential to regularly clean and maintain domestic evaporative air coolers.
