Your air conditioning unit needs regular maintenance, no matter how new the model is. Regular AC repair and maintenance helps keep your electricity costs down, keep your AC unit in tip-top shape, and your indoor atmosphere healthier.
Here are some air conditioning maintenance and care tips that are helpful to know:
1. Understand how your AC unit works.
Most central air conditioning units have two parts—an outdoor unit (compressor/condenser) that sits next to your house and an indoor unit (evaporator) that’s located in a central duct near your furnace. These parts need deep-cleaning and checking regularly. Search on the internet for “AC repair near me” so they can come by immediately. Be sure to call the best ac repairing in Dubai with emergency ac repair.
2. Use timers.
Programmable thermostats are a smart investment. It lets you set higher temps when you’re not at home and cooler temps when return. When you get help with an AC installation, ask for advice on which thermostats work for your unit.
3. Keep Your AC Unit in a cool place.
Your AC units work hard—and harder when it is hot. You can extend its life by keeping your house shades down during the day. You can also install awnings to shield windows from the intense sun. If there will be intense heat during summer, consider operating them together with fans to circulate cooled air more effectively.
4. Change your filters.
Dirty filters worsen your AC unit’s efficiency. It is advised to install a new one every month during the cooling season for central and window units. If you have the washable type, have them cleaned by an AC repairing team in Dubai or clean them yourself.
Tip: Look for the filters MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value). It can range from 1 to 12 for home AC units. The higher the number, the better filtration it provides—and the more energy needed to pull air through it.
5. Make sure your AC unit is the right size for its intended room surface.
AC units are sized according to the amount of cubic feet they need to cool. This is particularly important when you are purchasing a new AC unit. If an AC unit is too small for the room it needs to cool, it will work too hard to cool the air, wear out more quickly and struggle to meet the demands of the thermostat. Our team at AL HADI AC. & REF. REP will advise you during AC installation if your AC unit is a mismatch for your intended room.
