Air conditioning preventive maintenance when regularly conducted is a great way to help ensure the efficiency and longevity of your systems. As with most mechanical devices, there is maintenance you can do yourself and some that will require a professional air conditioning engineer to complete.
Over the years, the team here at Cooling Energy Services have helped many individuals to avoid costly issues by sharing their best tips and tricks on how to maintain the air conditioning units at their home or work.
Below are a selection of some of easiest and effective types of air conditioning preventive maintenance you can do.
What Air Conditioning Preventive Maintenance we would recommend:
- Keep the unit clean and clear of debris – Once a month, we recommend clearing debris such as leaves, pollen and twigs from the fan. A kitchen antiseptic spray tends to work well, just ensure to rinse with warm water and wait for it to dry before switching back on.
- Do an air flow check on both indoor and outdoor units – Make sure to keep around 2 feet of space clear around the units, as any obstacles in front of the units will likely diminish the air flow. If the air flow is still poor, you may have a failing fan motor or a blocked coil. This means it’s time to call for a professional checkup!
- Keep lamps or other heat producing products away – These may interfere with the thermostat and cause the system to work longer and harder than it may need to.
- Keep blinds and curtains closed – During the day keep curtains closed where possible to keep in or keep out heat, this will help you to use the air conditioning system more efficiently.
- Look out for rust – If you spot any rust on your unit, please call a professional for advice. Our expert engineers will be able to organise a check-up and provide a suitable solution for you.
