An air conditioning equipment is an investment that helps us to live more comfortable with the right temperature at home.
If we look for the equipment to last for many years and we hope to get the most out of its benefits, it is essential to perform a good periodic maintenance. It is not recommended once installed their air conditioning systems completely forget about it until it starts to give problems or a breakdown arises.
What is adequate maintenance?
- Filter cleaning This cleaning is very important, so that our air conditioning equipment works and lasts for longer. With this operation we do not lose thermal power, do not increase the consumption of the equipment and prevent the compressor from being damaged by excess dirt.
It is best to clean or replace the filter every so often.
- Cleaning the indoor unit In addition to the filters, we must also clean the space that remains when removing them. To finish the process, we will operate the equipment in ventilation mode.
- Cleaning the outdoor unit The outdoor unit does not usually have filters (except the centrifugal units) but it must also be cleaned, since the dirt from the outside is accumulated in the exchange battery. The easiest and most effective is to use an air compressor It is convenient to perform this operation frequently, especially in places with more pollution, such as cities.
How often do you have to perform this maintenance?
It is advisable to carry out this “thorough” cleaning and disinfection at least once a year. The best way to ensure that the air conditioner works correctly throughout the year, is to perform this maintenance in the seasonal changes, from cold to heat.
