As summer heats up, it’s important to make sure your Maroochydore air conditioning has been serviced and is working properly so that your home is cool and comfortable. Of course, before you call out for a professional air conditioning service, there are a few things you can do on your own to keep your air conditioner running.
Clean the outdoor unit & air filters
The outdoor unit of your air conditioner is the home to a range of components that are essential to the running of your air conditioner, including the condenser and the compressor. An air conditioner with this structure generally relies on air to cool the hot coolant so that the cooling cycle can keep repeating. If the outdoor unit or its surroundings is full of dirt and debris, it will be difficult for air to blow into the system. This is the same for the filters within your internal air conditioning unit. They trap all of the dust & particles from the air, but if they get clogged they will become less effective. Cleaning away the dust and dirt can help your unit operate efficiently.Clean the outdoor unit & air filters
Replace old, ineffective filters
Over time, as the filters in your air conditioner become clogged with dust caught on them, they will eventually become ineffective and need replacing (no matter how often you clean them). Ineffective filters will significantly reduce the amount of not only cool air your aircon produces, but also clean air. This also forces the unit to work harder to cool your home. At Port City Air Conditioning Maroochydore, we suggest replacing your air filters at least every three months to maintain the performance of your air conditioner.
Check your temperature control
A lot of other problems with air conditioners can be traced back to the temperature control. In a lot of cases, issues can be caused by a broken or misadjusted thermostat. Troubleshooting a broken temperature control setting is easy if you know what you’re looking for, but if the problem is too complex for you, make sure to call one of our air conditioning technicians in Maroochydore and we’ll be happy to help.
