Some Do It Yourself Tips For Your Air Conditioner Maintenance

Who in this world wouldn’t want his/her material assets to last long? Of course we all do. And if your air conditioner goes faulty, you may have to incur a high cost for its repair. So it’s always better to maintain it to help it last longer. That way, you will be able to save up a lot of your finances throughout life.

To help you keep your air conditioner running smooth and trouble-free, here are some tips which you may follow:

1. Keep an eye on the hoses to check if there are any leaks on them. Do this at least twice a year—once before you start using it for the summer months and another when you stop using it with the coming of winter. These are the best times to check leaks and in case you spot any, you can repair it right away before it gets worse.

2. Keep the compressor always clean. It is the most valuable part of the air conditioning unit and costs a lot to replace. And of course, it catches dirt in all the pollution around. So a little bit of spray cleaning of the compressor can ensure a longer life for it.

3. Every two years, call a professional to clean the ductworks for your air conditioner. This is not anything great or hard, nor a must. But keeping them clean assures better life for the whole machine.

4. The compressor should be kept covered when not in use, especially in the winter season. It must always be well-protected from harsh snows or sleet or rains. Some companies have their own compressor covers for the unit. So ask for one when you are buying your air conditioner. These covers are easy-to-fit and hassle-free. But if you don’t get such covers, manage on your own. But protect the compressor always.

These simple do-it-yourself maintenance steps should ideally be followed by every owner of an air conditioner if he/she wants the machine to last longer and better.
