We all appreciate the benefits of a properly functioning air conditioning system on a hot summer day. However, paying for major repairs on an air conditioning unit, or replacing it entirely, can be a costly and time-consuming headache.
Fortunately, there are some simple maintenance and cleaning tasks that most people can do to keep their air conditioning units in good condition.
First and foremost, it’s important to disconnect the power to the air conditioning unit before performing any work on it. Once that’s done, one of the most simple tasks is cleaning the filter, and removing any debris. You could also clean and straighten the fins, and clean the area surrounding the air conditioning unit. There are also fairly simple ways to use commercially available products for cleaning evaporator coils and drains.
These simple tasks can do a lot to improve the overall lifespan of your air conditioning system. Of course, it would be a good idea to consult a professional for their help in performing regular air conditioning maintenance.
