24°C

24 degrees is uniquely synonymous with the ideal temperature that your trusty home Air Conditioner should run at according to most manufacturer manuals.

Most Air Conditioners are now manufactured with a Star rating shown clearly on the front cover and as a consumer you would accept that the Star rating should remain as such for the lifetime of your Air Conditioner!   WRONG!

HydroKleen CEO John Sanders explains why.

When an Air Conditioner is new it will run at optimum as per the Star rating, however, when the Air Conditioner becomes dirty the Star rating becomes irrelevant because the machine has to work a lot harder to cool your room and so uses much more power.

This means that if your Air Conditioner has a Star rating of 4.5 – once it gets dirty it may drop to a 2 or a 2.5!

Sadly, the manufacturers fail to tell you this in their warranty manuals – other than to wash your filters regularly.

To keep your Air Conditioner running as per the Star rating on the front, you must keep the whole unit properly cleaned, not just the filters.

When your Air Conditioner becomes dirty you will tend to reduce the temperature from 24 to 22 or even 20 degrees.

Did you know that every time you reduce the temperature by one degree the Air Conditioner will use approximately 5% more power.

In 2009, HydroKleen invented the Wet wash system to clean and sanitize your Air Conditioner back to as new.  HydroKleen are the world experts in HydroKleening your trusty Air Conditioner back to how it should work when you purchased it.

If you want a guarantee that your air conditioner will have increased air flow and lower the temperature more quickly, in turn reducing running costs of your air conditioner, contact your local HydroKleen Certified Technician today on 1300 608 318.

Why You Need to Clean Your Air Conditioner Regularly

A clean air conditioning unit provides you and your family with many benefits.  Having cool air is just one benefit – ensuring the air is safe for you and your family is paramount. Regular cleaning and sanitisation of your unit provides you with health and financial benefits, and ensures your unit will last longer.

Here are some benefits of cleaning your air conditioner you need to know.

  • Cleaning your air conditioner lowers the power bill. You could lower your monthly energy bill by up to 30% by keeping your air conditioning unit clean. A dirty coil (located inside the unit) means the unit works harder to cool the air because there is much “less clean” surface area for the hot air to pass over. Avoid high power bills by having a thorough and proper HydroKleen annually.
  • Cleaning your air conditioner extends the unit’s life span. If an air conditioner is kept clean and well maintained, the appliance’s life can be extended. Air conditioners are costly, and you don’t want to replace them if you don’t have to. Regular cleaning with a certified HydroKleen Technician will keep your unit running smoothly.
  • Cleaning your air conditioner unit will help you and your family breathe cleaner and safer air in your home. After prolonged use, air conditioning systems become contaminated with fungi, mould, bacteria, pet dander and more.  When you turn on your unit, this is what you are breathing in!  Having your unit properly cleaned with a HydroKleen certified Technician will remove these contaminants in an eco-friendly, non-toxic way.  We’re proud of our association, and exclusive partnership, with National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice Program

Get your air conditioner functioning efficiently and effectively and breathing clean air.  Contact your local HydroKleen Certified Air Conditioning Cleaning Technician on 1300 608 318 and experience the difference.  Here’s what some of our customers are saying:

We had our air conditioners cleaned yesterday and cannot believe the difference.  We have always had them done annually by a different local company, but must say they have never been this good…

The reviews don’t lie. John and Brandon were amazing. The customer service is exceptional. Just complete value for money. The air that the AC unit blows smells great and is noticeably much stronger and cooler.

Why is a HydroKleen Different?

A HydroKleen isn’t like every other air conditioning cleaning system out there. Our systems are unique and have been tried and tested under some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. Heat and humidity, through to the bitter cold, we’re proud to say our products, techniques and systems make us best-in-class.

What makes us different? Our cleaning systems have been designed to leave you with the cleanest air conditioner on the market. We are specialists in cleaning and sanitizing split systems, window units, ceiling cassette units and even ducted air conditioning systems. Our cleaning agents and cleaning process have been exclusively approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice Program. This program focuses on finding and providing the best solutions in relation to asthma and allergy management. Understanding the health aspects of having clean air within your home or workplace is just part of what makes the HydroKleen clean and sanitization second-to-none.

If you’re not sure if your air conditioner needs a clean, there’s a few questions to ask:

  1. Has your air conditioner been cleaned (not just the filter) in the past 12 months? If it’s been over 12 months, your air conditioner is due for a clean.
  2. Does your air conditioner smell? If so, it’s probably the build up of microorganisms, such as mould and mildew creating that smell. It’s time to book a HydroKleen.
  3. Get a torch and shine it into the fan barrel of your split system. Can you see a build up of dirt? This is a sure sign you need to get your air conditioner cleaned.
  4. Has anyone in your home or workplace had any unexplained, coughs, colds or allergy-like symptoms? This could be a sign of the dust, dirt and other micro-organisms in the air, being recirculated, or a build up of mould and mildew in the air conditioner.


These are just a few of the factors which are important to ensuring you schedule a regular HydroKleen. When you choose a HydroKleen, we even guarantee that if our cleaning service isn’t the most thorough clean your air conditioner has ever had, the clean is FREE, plus we’ll book and pay for your air conditioner to be cleaned by a competitor!

If you want a guarantee that your air conditioner will have increased air flow and lower the temperature more quickly, in turn reducing running costs of your air conditioner, contact your local HydroKleen Certified Technician today on 1300 608 318.

Why You Should Care About Microbial Contamination

The HydroKleen team often speak of microbial (or microbiological) contamination, specifically in relation to dirty air conditioning systems that are in desperate need of cleaning. This contamination refers to the growth of harmful microorganisms, which can be found on various components of the internal workings of an air conditioner, particularly a dirty one. This potential hazard is a problem for several reasons:

  1. Visible growth of mould and mildew are a giveaway for microbial contamination. Mould and mildew are potential allergens and are difficult to remove and are a sure sign that your air conditioner is overdue for cleaning and sanitisation. This microbial contamination is a problem for those with asthma and other respiratory illnesses, the elderly and children.
  1. Microbial contamination often gives off a stale, damp smell, which is as unpleasant as it is unhealthy. This smell comes from the growth of mould and mildew spores. The only way to effectively remove the smell and prevent it from returning, is with regular cleaning.
  1. Every time you turn on your dirty air conditioner, the microbial contamination spreads through the air, becoming an airborne contaminant. Spread through the home or workplace, this contamination can lead to cold and allergy-type symptoms, such as runny noses and itchy eyes.
  1. Along with the health issues that can be caused, microbial contamination also leads to an air conditioner that’s less efficient, due to the build up of dirt, mould, mildew and other bacteria on the fan and coils. Did you know a HydroKleen can save you up to 30% on power usage for that unit?

The best way to avoid microbial contamination of your air conditioner is with a HydroKleen clean and sanitise. At HydroKleen, our cleaning agents and cleaning process have been exclusively approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice Program. Plus, we have a service guarantee, which we know you’ll love, so get in touch with our friendly HydroKleen team today to book your next clean on 1300 608 318!

Do You Buy Genuine or Imitation Products or Services?

We are living in a world where we’re always looking at ways we can save money. There are new supermarkets, retail outlets and businesses popping up all the time that promise quality products or services at discounted prices. It can be tempting to try that different supplier that offers the product or service at a significantly reduced price. What can it hurt?

This trend is now penetrating not just the products we buy but also services. Businesses, tradesman, and even technicians say they can match the product or service of their competitor. But, there are some things that you just shouldn’t substitute for price.

Let me give you a few examples:

  • Coke a Cola versus Home Brand Cola
  • Louis Vuitton Handbag versus Replica from Bali
  • Penfolds Shiraz versus Cleanskin Red
  • Lindt Chocolate versus Home Brand Chocolate Balls

You get the idea.

Oscar Wilde is quoted as saying “Imitation is the highest form of flattery”. But, some things should never be copied. There are some things that we should only buy genuine. There are things we just shouldn’t scrimp on, especially when it comes to the health of our family or colleagues.

We at HydroKleen find it alarming the number of client’s homes we attend where they have paid for “cheaper technicians” to clean their air conditioners at reduced rates. These are businesses supplying a service they don’t have the correct tools, equipment or expertise to perform.

The homeowner calls us to attend because:

  • they find the service hasn’t been performed correctly,
  • they have only cleaned part of the unit,
  • they have damaged the unit, and
  • they don’t offer any guarantee or warranty on their workmanship.

Nine years ago, HydroKleen invented and trade mark designed a cleaning service system. This system is so good that others are now trying to copy it. These “experts” claim to be able to offer the same high level of service as HydroKleen.

We understand that it’s hard to go past an advert for someone to clean your air conditioner for only $50 or $60. But, be very careful of the imitations or imposters. You do get what you pay for.

Think about it for a minute. An experienced air conditioner technician is going to travel to your home or workplace, thoroughly clean and sanitise your air conditioner unit, all for $50-$60. What level of service do you think you’ll get for this? It is simply a bait to get in your door and then they will tell you the real cost to clean. So please don’t let low advertised prices fool you.

It may cost more to HydroKleen your air conditioner by a fully trained HydroKleen technician. But, it will be value for your investment.

Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Only Buy Our Genuine Service:

  1. HydroKleen is the only cleaning service company with the specific equipment we designed and built. We can clean in places that others just cannot get to, no matter what lies they tell you.
  1. HydroKleen is the only cleaning service company that’s exclusively approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice program. We only achieved this approval after working for six months with independent chemists, doctors, and scientists. This included demonstrating our process, the cleaning agent we use and the anti-bacterial products we apply.

There is no other air conditioner cleaning company in Australia who’s achieved this. If you don’t believe us, visit the Sensitive Choice website.

  1. A HydroKleened air conditioning system is the most professional clean you can get. We’re so confident, should you not be happy with our service, we will refund your money in full and pay for a competitor to reclean it for you.

Beware of Imposters

There are lots of cheap imposters out there saying they can do the same as HydroKleen. In fact, nobody can clean like HydroKleen. Imposters don’t have access to any of our equipment or our technology. Nobody else can clean and sanitise your air conditioners as HydroKleen does. Make sure you use a “certified” HydroKleen technician and not somebody suggesting they can HydroKleen your air conditioner.

Don’t risk imitation – call HydroKleen today 1300 608 318 and Breathe Healthy Air™.
