5 Ways to Clean and Maintain Your AC
All appliances are investments and we could all agree, especially in tropical countries, that air-conditioning units are one of the biggest investments we have at home. That is why we should take care of them and get the most out of our Investment. So here are 5 tips on how to clean and maintain your AC.
1. Change Your Air Filters
Changing the air filters is very simple and can be done in less than 5 minutes. This should normally be done once a month and is one of the best ways to maintain your AC. Air filters work to prevent small particles like dust or dirt from entering your home but if unclean or unchanged, Air filters might hinder the air quality of your Ac.
2. Clean the Coils
Coils are an important part of your AC units, it helps your unit absorb the heat and helps to cool your home. So what happens if it’s not clean? Basically, if you don’t clean the coils it reduces the amount of heat that they can absorb thereby increasing the amount of effort that your AC needs in order to produce cool air.
3. Inspect the Condensate Drain
This part of your AC allows for the condensation happening inside your unit to drain outside. But if not checked, the drain might get clogged and can potentially reduce the functioning efficiency of your AC.
4. Check Freon Level
All AC units consume freon, this is the gas that helps with the cycling of air in order to produce the cool air inside your home. Normally this would not be an issue but it’s better to be safe than sorry. A potential leak could spell disaster for your unit because, without freon gas, the cooling process inside your AC would not be possible.
