Now that summer is here, our aircon will surely be used more often compared to when we have colder weather. Since we use our aircon more, we need to keep it clean so it functions efficiently. Because when our aircon functions well, it can save us on energy costs and repair bills.
As it is with any other electrical appliance, unplug your aircon from the power source as a safety precaution. You will have to check your aircon’s compressor. This part is pretty easy to remove. Loosen all the screws around the edge of the outer covering so you can take it out and remove the compressor from the inside. Then carefully lift the grill of the fan, making sure that no wires are crimped. Place this ins a safe place.
Inside, you will see all the dirt that has accumulated in the past. This is something that you want to remove by using some brush or vacuum. The next parts you may want to clean are the cooling fins. Clean these using some sprayer from the inside to the out so that all are removed. When the cooling fins are clean, the air that moves through it can cool properly, helping the unit function efficiently.
Make sure too that where your aircon is hosted is also clean because the unit will suck up the dirt in it. You may also want to regularly check your aircon’s freon.
