In this article, we’ll tell you how to treat your air conditioning parts to avoid problems in the future.
The Importance of Regular AC Maintenance
Regular maintenance will ensure the longevity and efficiency of AC systems and their components and prevent detrimental issues in the future.
Air conditioning parts are responsible for the optimal functionality of your system. If they’re not working properly, the system will show it.
Therefore, your air conditioning parts should be checked bi-yearly to prevent damage or failure.
Neglecting routine maintenance can reduce your system’s performance, cause poor interior air quality, and cause the system to overwork and use more energy than necessary.
Cleaning and inspection of your air conditioning parts will keep your air conditioner running as normal. But how do you clean and inspect?
Tips for Properly Cleaning and Protecting AC Components
As a general rule, you should always turn off the power supply before cleaning your air conditioning parts so as not to trip the switch or electrocute yourself.
Furthermore, your system’s electrical components should be covered with electrical tape while you’re working.
All components should be cleaned with soft microfibre brushes and cloths to remove dirt and debris.
Harsher cleaning equipment can lead to permanent scratches which can encourage the rate of deterioration over time.
The fins of the evaporator and condenser coils should be cleaned with a specialised coil cleaner.
The part of your air conditioner that will need the most attention is the air filter. The air filter is responsible for collecting airborne debris and purifying the air in your room. But if the filter is clogged, the air conditioner will struggle to collect debris, which causes lower air quality. You should replace or clean your air filter every 2-3 months to ensure it is working optimally.
Signs your Air Conditioning Parts May Need Repair or Replacement
The telltale sign that your air conditioning parts may need repairing or replacing is if you notice any sudden or unusual changes in your air conditioner.
For example, strange noises, leaks, odd smells, or a noticeable decrease in the efficiency of your system.
These symptoms indicate that something is wrong, and your air conditioner needs to be inspected by a qualified professional. You should ensure to contact a specialist as soon as possible to avoid the problems worsening.
