After getting your air conditioner installed, it is important that you maintain it so that it is working properly, and not decreasing the air quality of your home. Poor air quality affects everyone especially those with previous respiratory problems which is why it is important to make sure your air conditioner is installed correctly and also maintained afterward.
- Clean Air Filters
The more you use an air conditioner, the more debris that it is going to collect as it sits in the same spot. This results in air filters being clogged and becoming ineffective in filtering the air that goes around your home or property. Air filters work to filter out dirt, dust, and other debris which is why it is important to make sure that your air filters are cleaned.
2. Get Your Air Conditioner Inspected
Getting your air conditioner inspected by a professional is the best way to know if your air conditioner is working properly. D&T Air Conditioning can have one of its experts come and evaluate your air conditioning system so that we can fix any current problems and then prevent other problems from occurring.
3. Make Sure Fins Are Not Bent
Air conditioning fins run along the outside of your air conditioner and work to move warm air away from the air conditioning unit so that cool air can come through. If the fins inside your air conditioning unit are damaged and bent, the quality of air that your unit pushes around your house can decrease.
4. Cleaning Coils
The coils inside an air conditioning unit are responsible for transferring warm air out of your home. After use, these coils can become dirty and work less efficiently to transfer warm air out because they are clogged. This results in your air conditioning unit having to work harder and cause further problems along the way.
5. Remove Debris From The Unit
Removing debris such as leaves and nuts that can potentially build up inside your air conditioning unit is important to make sure that your air quality is not affected. Trees and bushes that surround your air conditioning unit can cause these types of debris to build-up. Keeping your unit clean of debris will maintain your unit’s condition and air quality.
