The weather is reasonably unpredictable. There are months that are expected to be rainy or cold, there are times when you would have thought summer has arrived early. We may use our air conditioning units sporadically – this does not mean that we avoid cleaning and maintaining the unit. Like any home appliance, an air conditioning unit requires regular cleaning to ensure it is performing at its best.
Regular cleaning of the filters is just one aspect of cleaning an AC unit. You need to get rid of the dust and dirt from your filter, but what about the inside of the unit? What’s hiding inside? A thorough clean of your unit will remove toxic pollutants such as mould and bacteria which have an adverse effect on allergies and symptoms of asthma.
Aside from this, there are many more ways to maintain your air conditioning unit and make it work at its best. Follow these tips now.
- Keep the indoor and outdoor units free from dirt. Periodically, clean the dust on the filter. You can use a vacuum cleaner, or wash the filter using mild detergent and warm water. Let the filter dry thoroughly before you replace it. You need to also make sure that the outdoor fins are free from debris as this can restrict airflow and cause the compressor to work harder which leads to higher energy consumption and cost.
- Use built in energy-saving programmers and features. During hot seasons, it would be best to use program timers in order to start the air conditioning units before the temperature gets too hot. Do not set the temperature to the coldest setting, this will not cool your home or office faster. Set the temperature of the unit to about 24 degrees Celsius. This will make your environment more comfortable while saving energy consumption and cost. Remember every time you reduce the temperature by one degree the Air Conditioner will use approximately 5% more power.
- Have your unit cleaned by a professional. Choose the best cleaning and sanitizing company that will provide a thorough clean of your air conditioning unit.
