How Should You Maintain Your Air Conditioner?

Just like when we are stressed out and need a break, our devices too feel the same. Due to continuous performance and usage, our devices too face wear and tear. Thus your air conditioner, heating devices, fans, chimneys, etc., need regular maintenance to keep performing at optimum level. 

When we enjoy the cooling effect of the air conditioner, we hardly think that to keep it that way next season, we need to maintain it. That’s where we make the first mistake. The second thing is that we don’t take the pain to get it serviced regularly and wait till there is a drop in its functioning. 

Here are a few useful tips to take care of your air conditioner so that it keeps on cooling you effectively. 

Clean up the filters

The air filters are one of the components that obstruct the normal airflow when dust fills in. Thus, the first thing as a part of the maintenance you should do is to clean them. If not removed from the filters on time, the dust can spoil the cooling coils as it enters there, damaging the system. As a good practice, you should clean the air filters once a month. 

Evaporator and condenser coil

The air conditioner’s condenser coil is an outside unit exposed to harsh weather and dust. Accumulation of dust, debris, etc., from outside hinders the heat dissipation process at that end. 

The dust from air filters comes here. So, even if you clean the air filter, there are chances that the evaporator coil is not fully cleaned. However, unlike the monthly servicing op air filter, the evaporator coil requires half-yearly or yearly maintenance. 

Unclogging

The water flow from the air conditioner is an important part of its functioning. Thus, you should check for the clogging of the pipes and ensure that they are unclogged. You can check for that once every 15-20 days. 

In cities like Palm Desert, heating and air conditioning are available easily on a call and on-demand. Still, many of us would delay the repair and maintenance for too late. When the summers get in and when the air conditioning repair in Palm Desert sees a huge demand, you would have to wait a long time for your device to be repaired. Then you would curse yourself for not acting on time while washing sweat from your face. Don’t want to face that, right? Then it’s time to act.
