It might seem like we’re getting a little bit ahead of ourselves here, but having a working, fully functional air conditioning system is crucial even in those colder months. Because these systems are so important, it’s essential that businesses understand how to look after and care for their air conditioner, no matter what time of the year it is.
Here at Paragon Temperature Solutions, we are experienced air conditioning engineers, so we already know how to take care of an air conditioning unit. Here are our 3 top tips for ensuring your system remains functional all year round.
Check Your Filters Regularly
One of the main issues that we come across with air conditioning units is that the filters can become clogged with dust and debris from the air and can cause the unit to overheat.
This is why it is essential that the filters are regularly checked for any blockages and cleaned of any dirt that can be seen. Not only will this reduce the chance of the unit overheating and posing a fire hazard, it will also improve the quality of the air that the air conditioner is circulating around the room.
Clearing your filters will also improve the actual circulation of the air, allowing more air to pass through the unit smoothly, reducing the amount of energy that is required to process the air which will also save you money in the long run!
Power It Down When Not Required
Like most machinery that requires power to function, it’s always best to turn it off if possible when it isn’t needed.
This will not only save you money on your energy bills, especially during those months where you are relying on the heating and cooling of a room to make it more bearable, it will also prolong the life of your unit, giving you reliable air conditioning for a longer period of time.
Because you are using the unit less, each of the components won’t be used unnecessarily which would lead to premature wear and tear. Avoid potentially costly repairs and replacement by powering down the unit when you don’t need it.
If In Doubt, Ask an Expert
If there’s something not quite right with your air conditioning unit, but you can’t seem to pinpoint what, it’s time to call in the experts.
Opening up the unit and fiddling with the components can be extremely dangerous and could seriously damage the air conditioning system and its functionality. So rather than putting yourself and your air conditioning unit at risk, we’d recommend calling in the aid of a specialist, just like the engineers we have here at Paragon Temperature Solutions.
We will be able to diagnose any issues that you may be experiencing, as well as spot damage that you might not be able to see. We can also ensure that your unit runs correctly, and diagnose any potential issues which may arise in the future!
