When temperatures rise and summer kicks in, you do not want to be caught with a faulty air conditioner unit.
The last thing you want is to turn your air conditioner on and it does not work! It is essential to maintain your air conditioner units regularly, even if it has not been used for extended periods. An air conditioner still collects damaging dust and debris when not used.
To avoid disappointing air conditioner breakdowns, it is a good way to perform some basic maintenance.
Air conditioners are fitted with a basic filter that prevents dust, pollen, grease and other airborne pollutants from entering the air conditioning unit. From time to time, these filters get blocked up and put pressure on the performance of the aircon unit. Prolonged use of the unit with dirty filters can cause costly damages, and it puts more pressure on the motor, that will result in higher power usage.
Remove the filters and clean them regularly.
