Evaporative Cooling Service & Maintenance

14-Point Evaporative Cooling Service & Professional Clean

Why choose our Evaporative Cooler Service?

Just like your car, your Evaporative Air Conditioning unit needs regular servicing to ensure it is operating at maximum efficiency – while delivering the safest, cleanest air to you and your little ones. 

We recommend booking one of our 14-point Comprehensive Evaporative Cooling Services in the spring, to avoid the peak demand of the summer rush. With our comprehensive Air Conditioning service including a thorough clean inside and outside of the unit – removing it of mould and bacteria from stagnant water – you’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing you’re enjoying pure, clean air with efficient performance all summer long. 

If your system is currently faulty, you will need the system to be repaired. See our repairs services 

Our Evaporative Cooler Service Includes:

Filter Pads

Filter pads are thoroughly cleaned from nasty build-up of dust and dirt, spider webs, insects, leaves, and other debris.

Water Pump

We make sure that your water pump is operating correctly and is also free from debris.

Drain Valve

An inspection of the drain valve is performed, ensuring that it is opening and closing correctly – and that there are no signs of wear or visible leaks around the O-ring seal.

Float Valve

We make sure that your water supply is shutting off when the correct water level is achieved, by checking on your float valve (system dependant).


We take a good look at the solenoid valve that is vital to efficient cooling operation.

Internal Water Tank

Then, we get in and give your internal water tank a thorough clean to make sure no stale water is circulating for healthier breathing in Australian family homes.

Roof Flashings

Our expert technicians check that your roof flashings are waterproof, and free of any bird nests and debris.


A full inspection searching for leaks and drips is performed, from your water line through to the drainpipe.

Water Distribution

We check the water distribution across filter pads to ensure complete saturation that results in peak performance with quality air.


Then we turn our attention to your fan. It is tested in all modes and the speeds are set correctly.


Now it’s time to inspect your ducting. This is essential to make sure it is still in good condition and kink-free, allowing your cool air to flow freely through your home.

Bleed-rate Setting

It’s time to move on to testing and adjustment of your bleed-rate settings. This makes sure that your cooler doesn’t leak too much water (in systems that don’t have a drain valve).


Your outlets are inspected to ensure efficient performance of airflow.

Full Function Test

And finally, only now do we perform a full function test, to ensure that everything is spick and span for you.

How Evap Works

How often should my Evaporative Air Conditioning unit be serviced?

We recommend that you get your Evaporative Service done annually. Because the inner environment of your Evaporative Air Conditioning system is warm and wet, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mould if neglected too long. Also, in extreme cases, a neglected Evaporative Cooler clogged up with dust and leaves can cause a house fire. 

A Plum Trade Services Evaporative Cooling service is a cost-effective way to ensure your Air Conditioning delivers at optimum performance. Our 14-Point comprehensive checklist ensures you get a thorough service every time.
