In Singapore, the hot tropical climate makes it tough to live without air-conditioning. This has led to a rise in the usage of air conditioners to beat the heat of scorching summers. The more an aircon works, the more there are chances of wear and tear if regular maintenance and servicing are not done. Looking for the best aircon service pricing in Singapore? Check out the price chart below.
When different parts of your aircon get clogged because of dirt and dust, it can affect the efficiency of the aircon unit. Not only will the unit’s cooling power be lowered but it will result in increased energy bills since the aircon will have to work harder.
Doing the regular cleaning yourself will help the aircon unit work smoother for some time but professional cleaning is essential to maintain its good efficiency. A maintenance package is thus recommended to prolong the lifespan of the unit.
A chemical cleaning is a process by which a professional cleans the machinery of your aircon to improve its performance. It involves cleaning the air filters, fan bearings, and drainage system through chemical-based cleaners. Also, the fan evaporator coil, refrigerant gas, blower wheel, drain pan, and pipes are all cleaned using the chemical cleaner. The price for this chemical cleaning varies according to the type of aircon and its number of fan coils. The one-time chemical cleaning prices are listed for the aircon having:
|Nos. of Air-cond Unit||1 Time Service|
|1 Fancoil||$ 80|
|2 Fancoil||$ 150|
|3 Fancoil||$ 210|
|4 Fancoil & above||$ 65 per unit|
A normal cleaning and maintenance servicing should be done for your aircon at least every year. This ensures that it will continue to run smoothly and only call for minor repairs instead of completely breaking down where you would be left with no other choice but to replace the aircon.
This normal maintenance includes cleaning the filter and evaporator surface. In this servicing, the professionals also perform a general compressor health check to identify any issues or problems that might need fixing.
|Nos. of Aircon Unit||1 Time Service|
|1 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 40|
|2 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 50|
|3 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 70|
|4 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 85|
|5 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 100|
|6 Fancoil & above (c/w Condenser)||$ 19 per unit|
|Nos. of Aircon Unit||Tri-yearly (3x)|
|2 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||146 nett|
|3 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 196 nett|
|4 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 236 nett|
|5 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 286 nett|
|6 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 336 nett|
|Nos. of Aircon Unit||Quarterly (4x)|
|2 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 21.90 per unit / $175|
|3 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 17.90 per unit / $215|
|4 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 16.60 per unit / $265|
|5 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 16.75 per unit / $335|
|6 Fancoil (c/w Condenser)||$ 16.50 per unit / $395|
An air conditioner is responsible not only for maintaining a cool and pleasant temperature in a room but also purifies the air and making sure that there is enough air circulation. Regular cleaning and maintenance are of utmost importance to ensure that the air-conditioning unit keeps working as designed.
However, with extended usage, an aircon would need more than just normal servicing. An aircon chemical overhaul is a way in which you can thoroughly service the aircon to improve its performance and durability.
The process of chemical overhaul starts with dismantling the complete unit and cleaning the filters with chemicals to ensure that only fresh and pure air is blown inside the room.
The technician then cleans each and every component of the aircon including blower wheels, heat exchange coils, water trays, drainage pipes, and others. The main purpose is not only cleaning but also looking for any anomalies so that they can be fixed then and there.
This process is more detailed than a chemical cleaning and produces much better results in improving the aircon’s efficiency. Again, the price of the aircon chemical overhaul service depends on the number of air conditioner units having different numbers of fan coils.
|Nos. of Air-cond Unit||1 Time Service|
|1 Fancoil||$ 140|
|2 Fancoil||$ 260|
|3 Fancoil & above||$ 120 per unit|
Refilling the gas reservoir is one of the most important aspects of aircon maintenance. If the gas level is low, the air-conditioning unit will not be able to effectively cool the room.
If you hire a technician to top up the gas reservoir, he will not only refill the gas but also check for leaks or cracks to ensure that the gas does not get leaked in the future. The process of refilling involves attaching the gas pipes with the aircon’s ports and then filling the gas by constantly checking the gauge.
When the required amount has been filled, the valves are locked. You can also use various kits available in the market to check the gas levels yourself. If the levels drop, you can call for professional help to refill it and check for leaks. The price for gas refilling is listed below:
|R410A||$60 – $150|
|R22||$40 – $120|
Sometimes, it is hard to determine the issue of aircon units, especially older models. There might be a myriad of issues, but it is hard to know which is the most potent problem that requires your immediate attention.
Hence, at times like this, where your aircon is in a dire need of repair, you will be requiring aircon troubleshooting services. Aircon troubleshooting prices may differ depending on the situation. Hence it is advisable for curious customers to contact us for a quote.

When you buy a new air conditioner, its installation is the first step. However, it is also the most crucial step as any small mistake or negligence can result in much bigger problems in the future in terms of the aircon’s performance and functionality. Hence it is important to find out what you need to know before buying an aircon unit.
You should also find out about the Aircon BTU and make the necessary BTU calculations to optimise your aircon usage. A typical split aircon requires an indoor unit and an outdoor unit to be installed. Power cables are then connected and drainage pipes installed. Hiring a professional to install ensures that all aspects are properly looked after.
The price of an aircon installation depends on several factors such as the type of air-conditioning unit being installed, if ventilation ducts are also installed or not, and other factors. This price can range anywhere between $800 to $2,000.
