Summers have finally arrived. We have arranged our almirahs with our summer clothes and made changes in our dietary ingredients. But have we prepared our AC? Or do you plan to start using your AC without any preparations and cleaning? You can do so, but this will cause you some great losses!
We must prepare our AC for the summer season as well. We will start using them after a long gap of 5-7 months. After such a long gap without any preparations, using them can cause you problems like a sudden hike in your electricity bill, inefficiency in its working, or damage to the components.
How can you prepare your AC for the summer season? Here are some points that you can consider –
Replace the filters of your system before switching it on. Clean and replace your filters monthly in the summer season, and replace them before using your AC. The cleaning will remove the dirt and dust from the filter and enhance your AC’s cooling ability.
Your exterior condenser may be covered with dust and dirt during the winter season. Clean it thoroughly and remove all the dirt and twigs, if any. Ensure that there are at least two feet of free space around the exterior condenser. It will ensure that the internal components of your exterior condenser do not face any damage.
Your ductwork must be without any fault. Check that the seams and connections are secure and intact. There must not be any blockage by rugs or furniture, or there must not be anything inside the ductwork. If you find any holes or leakages, use silver aluminum tape to seal them.
The outside unit of your AC, known as the condenser, is as important as the inside components of your AC. It is responsible for the proper cooling of the air that enters the system. If the outside unit has debris in or on it, the system will not work efficiently. Clean the outside unit thoroughly and clear at least two feet around it. You can also use your garden hose to remove the fallen leaves lest they get sucked inside. It will ensure that your system works most efficiently.
Contact your technician for a regular tune-up of your system. It may be possible that even after considering the above points, your system may not work as efficiently as you want it to. This could be possible due to some serious internal problem with the system. To ensure that this problem does not take a lethal form, you should contact a technician as soon as possible.
