Summers are upon us and if you have not started already, you will soon be thanking the inventor of AC who saves you from this scorching heat. However, like every other machinery that is out there in the market; your AC requires maintenance as well and therefore, we decided to compile a list for our readers so that they can carry out the basic maintenance at their homes. Read on and implement these tips to make your AC new again.
6. Changing the Filter
If you dont already do this; make it a habit. The filter for your AC should be cleaned bi-weekly and replaced every 1-3 months. Cleaning and changing the filter ensures that youre maintaining a quality air flow while keeping your AC dust-free.
These are located on front of your AC and should be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt or any other hindrance that might be present there and reducing your ACs capacity.
4. Condenser Coil
Use a vacuum to clean this coil thoroughly which will result in improvement in your ACs performance. You can alternatively make use of an old toothbrush to clean the dirt from the coils.
3. Freon Levels
Ideally speaking, your AC should not be consuming any Freon coolant but if that is not the case, you need to be aware that it implies something is wrong with your AC and it is advised to tackle the problem right away instead of delaying it.
Make sure that the fuse and safety switch all are in working conditions before you start using your AC.
1. Bonus Tip
For those of you who own a window unit AC (the older version); make sure that you dont switch on the AC right away rather you should turn on its fan first and then after a span of 2-3 minutes, switch on AC to make sure that your AC runs smoother.
