How To Maintain Your Air Conditioner

Card image cap

Maintaining your air conditioner is crucial to allow your unit to function efficiently and effectively for many years. This includes paying attention to your air conditioners, filters, coils and fins.

Failing to do regular maintenance will result in a consistent decline in air conditioning performance while the amount of energy used goes up. Hence, you will have greater costs and less comfort.

Here are some practical tips for maintaining the efficiency of your air conditioner.

Tips For Air Conditioning Maintenance

Hire A Professional

Hiring a professional is the easiest and most useful strategy for air conditioning maintenance. Maintaining your air conditioner is not a simple task, especially when it has complex technical problems such as not being able to decrease the indoor temperature to a pleasant level.

A professional service technician is trained to deal with a variety of air conditioning issues, so they will know how to find and fix problems in your air conditioning system. Some of their tasks would include:

  • Checking the accuracy of the thermostat
  • Measuring airflow through the evaporator coil
  • Inspecting electric terminals
  • Testing for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector

Clean The Filters

An air conditioning maintenance task you can do by yourself is to replace and clean filters. When filters are clogged and dirty, this can decrease airflow and the efficiency of your air conditioning system. Plus, when airflow is obstructed, air will miss the filter and dirt will go straight into the evaporator coil and lessen the coil’s heat-absorbing output.

Check and Clean Your Evaporator Coil

Another way to maintain your air conditioner is to check and clean your evaporator coil every year. If the evaporator coil is dirty, this can also reduce airflow and insulate the coil, which impairs its ability to absorb heat. Therefore, cleaning your evaporator coil helps to keep your air conditioning working efficiently.

Comb The Coil Fins Back Into Place

Every air conditioning unit consists of aluminium fins that can bend easily and block airflow. You can buy an air conditioning tool called a “fin comb” to comb these fins back into place.
