It can be aggravating to turn on your air conditioner on the first hot day of the year to discover that it is labouring to chill the room, or worse, not working at all. While it’s advised that you hire a professional engineer to do an air conditioning service as part of your annual property maintenance, there are a few basic inspections you can perform in the interim to keep your air conditioner functioning efficiently.Do you want to learn more?

The majority of air conditioning problems are caused by a lack of cleanliness, but simply dusting the vents on a regular basis will extend the life of your unit significantly. Removing the filters, spraying them down with antibacterial spray, and rinsing them with warm water is another simple way to improve the hygiene of your air conditioning system. The cleaner you keep your unit, the less often you’ll need to have an air conditioning service.
Your air conditioning system has a filter to protect the mechanics inside as well as to keep the air inside your home or office clean. If this filter isn’t kept clean, your air conditioning system will work harder and less efficiently, resulting in increased energy bills and the possibility that your yearly air conditioning service will not be enough to keep your unit in good working order. Some air conditioning filters must be cleaned instead of replaced, and vice versa. An electrostatic filter can be cleaned, but a disposable fibreglass or paper filter should be replaced on a regular basis, anything from once a month to twice a year, depending on your local air quality. Check it on a regular basis to see how often you need change yours. When a filter needs to be replaced, it will appear clogged with dust.
The condensing unit is a component of your air conditioning system that sits outside and draws air in. If this becomes obstructed by weeds, dead leaves or even outdoor furniture you’ve stored against it, your air conditioning may not work as well as it could do. Cleaning the space around the unit should be a frequent component of your property upkeep. It’s also a good idea to perform this before an air conditioning service to prevent getting charged by the engineer for time spent cleaning and to avoid having your unit misdiagnosed.
