Keep your cool by keeping the cooling system in proper working condition. If not on daily basis but even if you maintain the air conditioning system on a yearly basis then also it is sure to last longer than predicted. To ensure proper efficient cooling you must keep them clean and tidy. The air conditioning is designated to keep your home cooler than the outside temperature but just like many other electrical components it also needs repair and maintenance to ensure its peak performance.

While there are many maintenance steps that are best to be left for the professionals but you can work on simple DIYs at home to ensure effective air conditioning maintenance. These are the basic air conditioning maintenance steps:

  • Air Filter:

The first thing that is of crucial importance is the changing of the air filter! This is something that must be changed on a regular basis. The maximum use of air conditioning is during the summer months so before the onset of the summer months make sure to follow this simple DIY! You must remove the existing air filter and replace it with a new one. A new filter will help to provide more fresh and clean air. This will make you feel at ease once you land at home after facing the scorching outdoor sun.

  • Condenser:

The condenser is usually located on the outside. Since it is located on the outside, it attracts the majority of the dirt, debris, pollens and other harmful micro organisms that are present in the air. Due to this accumulation, the condenser’s working comes to a halt and shows inefficiency. Shut off the main switch and after shutting off the power, carefully remove the fan cage and using a stiff bristled broom clean out any leaves, cob webs and the other dirt and debris. Cleaning the condenser will help it to ‘breathe’. You must also clean the condenser coils as they too get soiled with usage.

  • Evaporator Coil:

The next thing that you can do for air conditioning maintenance in Quakers Hills is by cleaning the evaporator coil. The refrigerant of the air conditioning absorbs all the heat in order to produce cool air. To ensure this your aircon’s evaporator must be thoroughly cleaned. Cleaning it is critical to its functionality. In order to do so, you will have to open up the door to the blower unit. Start by dusting the coil followed by spraying over it with a commercial coil cleaner.

The above steps are quite simple and can be worked as DIY. Every gadget demands proper maintenance for its functioning. A valuable tip is to change the air filter on a regular basis. These are few basic things that you can do all by yourself, but in case of deep cleaning or any malfunctioning component of the air conditioning make sure to hire qualified aircon maintenance services. 

You cannot thrive in absence of aircons as once you install them; they become a necessity to your living.
