In Dubai, the summer heat can be literally fatal in order to have a well maintained reliable system, air conditioning is essential for all families and businesses. Here, professionals talk about what homeowners can do to prevent an AC collapse.

An air conditioner breaks down in an area where summer temperatures routinely top 100 degrees can create serious problems. What can you do as a homeowner in Dubai to ensure that the system is always on its best behavior?

In our experience, crash prevention is simple - it's being diligent about maintenance and inspections. In fact, following the manufacturer's maintenance instructions is the most important thing you can do to extend the life of your air conditioning equipment and avoid costly breakdowns and repairs.

Have your system for regular maintenance
Too many homeowners ignore their air conditioning systems until they stop working, which is something they simply cannot understand. Having your air conditioner serviced regularly is like changing the oil in your car. You do not drive the car for a year without changing the oil, and then ask why they do not work anymore. However, for some reason, most people do not apply the same logic to their HVAC equipment, despite the fact that it represents such a significant investment. Your HVAC system is probably expensive equipment, and not keeping it properly, you can easily cut life expectancy in half.

We recommend having your HVAC systems cleaned once every six months by an experienced and licensed contractor. This service must include, as a minimum:

• Cleaning and / or filter replacement
• Clean the rollers
• Check and tighten electrical connections
• Control and adjustment of low-voltage components

It is also important for you to change the AC system filters on a regular basis, in addition to semiannual preventive maintenance. Changing the filters frequently keeps air moving freely through the system and keeps your air conditioning running efficiently. In contrast, a dirty filter will slow down the airflow and force the system to work harder to keep your home fresh. Overworking your system on a regular basis is one way to ensure a system error.

If you live in Dubai, you should change the filters every two or three months, more often if you notice that they are starting to look dirty. The health of your air conditioner depends on it, and so does yours. Maintaining fresh air conditioning system filters has the advantage of improving indoor air quality. In Dubai, where allergens and dust can be a major problem for children, allergy sufferers and people with respiratory diseases, changing filters regularly will ensure that every member of the family is able to breathe freely.

To keep your AC system in the form of service calls, we recommend cleaning the condenser coil only once a week. The fan inside the door also brings dirt and debris including grass, dead leaves, dust and more. Once it collects debris, it begins to restrict the flow of air through the unit, reducing its efficiency. To clean the condenser coil, you must first turn off the system.

Keeping your air conditioning running is not rocket science. But still, the regular AC maintenance Dubai is better to be done by professionals. It will keep you and your family comfortable for years to come.
