With temperatures on the rise, more and more people have started using air conditioning. It is important to take good care of your air conditioner if you want it to serve you for a long time.
Maintaining your air conditioner becomes easy once you understand its components. Refer to the product manual which will give you a basic idea about them. Here are some of the things to keep in mind about maintenance of your air conditioner:
- Replace air filters once in a moth or a quarter, as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Maintain stable thermostat temperature so that the AC can provide cooling with optimum effort.
- Clean the cooling coils once a year. Switch off the device and pour water on the coils to remove dust.
- To keep the air vents clean, place an absorbent protection below the return air vent. Water coming out of air vents is a sign that the air-conditioner in not in good condition.
- Get rid of the dust and dirt on the compressor to enable free flow of air through the cooling fins. During winters, when the AC is not used, cover the compressor with a cloth to protect it from dust.
- If you have a window AC, make sure it is not exposed to too much sunlight. If possible, place plants near the AC to provide shade without blocking the air flow.
Apart from taking these steps to maintain the air conditioner, having a professional technician inspect your air conditioning unit regularly will keep it running smoothly and minimize your electricity bills.
