For your air conditioner to work properly you should clean the compressor and condenser coils. For the cold air to circulate into your house or business effectively the compressor and condenser coils should be functioning properly. This can be done by removing the fan guard and spray the dust and dirt that may have built up in them. You find the buildup may block the cold air from getting into the house effectively and thus may result into unhealthy air in the house. As a result, you will be able to get the fresh air if you clean the compressor and condenser on regular basis.
Another maintenance practice is checking the coil fins. At some points these fins may get bent and thus may interfere with the continuous and smooth flow of air which may interrupt the cooling process. For you to straighten this coil fins you should use a fin comb so that air can move smoothly. This will prolong its lifespan and also increase its efficiency.
At all times you should make sure that the outdoor unit is levelled. This is the point where your air conditioner rests and with time it may change position or sink and this will interfere with the cooling process. It is important that you level the ground below your unit occasionally to make sure that it is at the right point. You can as well use the level from your tool box to align the unit which is always done when you are not sure of the right level.
Another important part that you should clean is the filter. You should clean it to remove the dust and dirt in it and also replace it after a period of 3 months. You find that when this is not done properly you may suffer from dangers such as breathing contaminated air and other things as well.
You should also use a mixture of water and bleaching agent to clean the evaporator coil. It should be done regularly since evaporator coil catches dirt and dirt very easily. This is the part that is responsible for creating cold air and once it is not cleaned it will interfere with the whole process.
Another important part that you should clean is the evaporator drain. This can also be done by the use of a mixture of water and a bleacher at the same ratio. As a result, you will be able to kill the mold or mildew that may build up in the air condition. Carrying out the maintenance practices on your air conditioner will ensure you have quality air in your house.
