Summer’s just beginning so now’s the time to do all the checks needed on your air conditioner just to be sure your home is ready for the heat as it comes rolling though. After all, the last thing you need is your air conditioner dying on you when summer is already in full swing. That’s why we’ve compiled some tips for maintaining your Noosa air conditioner before you need to bring in the professionals.
Clean the Outdoor Unit
The outdoor unit of your air conditioner is the home to several essential components, including the condenser and the compressor. An air conditioner with this structure generally relies on air to cool the hot coolant so that it can repeat the cooling cycle. If the outdoor unit or its surroundings is full of dirt and debris, it will be difficult for air to blow into the system. Cleaning away the debris can help your unit operate efficiently.
Replace Old and Dusty Filters
Over time, the filters in your air conditioner become clogged with dust caught on them as air passes through the inlet and outlet of your unit. This dust accumulation can 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 Noosa, we suggest air filters should be replaced at least every three months to maintain the performance of your air conditioner.
Turn Off the Humidifier
At times when the air feels too dry, turning on the humidifier is a good idea. But if it’s too hot and you need cool air more than extra moisture, then using just your air conditioner makes more sense in this situation. This is especially true in the peak of summer when it’s already quite humid. The air conditioner brings the temperature down by stripping excess moisture from the air so it can offer a few benefits in this situation.
Have Your Noosa Air Conditioner Serviced by a Technician
This is one of the best decisions you can make for your air conditioner this summer. A technician knows exactly the kind of servicing your air conditioner needs and has the right skill and experience to perform it. We always recommend trying these basic maintenance and troubleshooting tips first, to make it easier for the technician to identify and fix any existing issues.
