Is this Brisbane’s Most Complete Commercial Air Conditioning Maintenance Program?

Is this Brisbane’s Most Complete Commercial Air Conditioning Maintenance Program?


Acer Services offers South East Queensland businesses absolute peace of mind with our unmatched 32-Point Commercial Air Con Maintenance Checklist.

You wouldn’t skip a service in your work vehicles, or not bother to turn up for an annual medical check-up, would you?

So why would you neglect something that is equally important – getting a reputable air conditioning company like Acer Services to perform regular commercial maintenance on your air con system?

Not when regular maintenance schedules have been conclusively proven to reduce energy costs, extend the life of the equipment, and prevent costly repairs.

In fact, not only can having a scheduled air conditioning maintenance program reduce energy use by between 10 to 20%, but conversely infrequent or non-existent maintenance services can actually increase energy use by 30 to 50 percent…up to a 70% turnaround. 

Preventative air conditioning maintenance is a necessity, not a luxury.

We get it. All businesses have an inexhaustible list of outgoings and expenses, however air con maintenance is NOT something you should ever consider cutting back on.

Let’s face it, commercial air conditioning systems don’t come cheap, so if you have to replace yours before their time, you’re wasting money.

Through professional servicing, your A/C units will:

  • Last longer
  • Work more efficiently and economically
  • Rarely break down, and
  • Cool or heat more thoroughly to keep staff happier and more productive.

Remember the old “stitch in time” adage? It’s true!

If we can find a leak or other problem sooner, it is guaranteed to stop hassles later. (After all, have you ever known a problem to sort itself out and get better, not worse?)

And obviously it costs much less to fix a small problem than it does to fix a big one.

No other Brisbane commercial air conditioning company has a more comprehensive Maintenance Checklist.

Each and every time Acer Services conduct a scheduled air con maintenance (also called planned air conditioning maintenance), we carry out an unmatched…


 32-Point Checklist.

We don’t just skim over things, but look closely at all of the following points:

  33. Full Written Report + Preferred Client Status

And on top of that, at the end of each air con maintenance service, we also provide a full written report on the condition of your air conditioning system, which could include a list of issues that may need to be resolved at your next service.

Finally, by engaging Acer Services to perform scheduled A/C maintenance, you automatically achieve Preferred Customer Status allowing you to jump the queue if ever anything goes wrong…even in the middle of Summer when we are at our busiest!
