Perform Regular Maintenance
Most people know that they need to change the air filter on their air conditioner regularly. However, people are less aware of other regular maintenance that can help prevent needing an engineer. Here are a few basic maintenance tasks that can help prevent the need for more professional help:
Check the ducts for air leaks at least twice a year
Frequently check your plant room and air ducts. You want to make sure that wildlife is not setting up home in your vents. Also you want to ensure there are no items being stored near the plant equipment interfering with air flow.
Check the external unit at least once a month.
You want to be sure that the elements are not interfering with performance. Make sure that your unit is clear of any unwanted plant growth, birds nesting or ant hills depending on where its positioned.
Use high quality air filters
A top of the line air filter will produce greater air quality, and will also help to increase the efficiency of your unit.
Dust and clean your vents and ducts regularly
Dirty vents and ducts can cause poor air flow, and could lead to potential health risks. You will want to be sure that there is no moss and/or fungi growing in your vents and ducts.
