Things You Should Know About Your AC Unit
Sunday 30 August 2020
If you’re someone who doesn’t know the first thing about air conditioning devices, that’s okay. Why not check out the following information; it might prove to be useful, should you need it.
You need to clean your compressor regularly
Since this is the part of the machine that’s located outside, it can often be a good idea to take the time to keep it clean. Weekly checks can be the most suitable, although it is generally best to also give them a clean after bad weather (particularly wind and storms). Make sure that there isn’t any debris lodged in the devices fins, as this can have an effect on how well it runs. Also, there should be 2 feet of space around all sides, so it might be worth cleaning around it too.
The filters need to be changed and cleaned
The filter can usually be found somewhere in your unit indoors, and it’s crucial for the device’s ability to properly purify the air and remove any particles before they can make their way into your home. It’s typically best for them to be changed every month if they’re smaller (1”), although it’s worth noting that larger ones (like those that are 4-5”, for example) may only need to be changed every half a year, or even once every 12 months.
