In between school runs, work, and daily errands, fixing your air conditioners can seem quite the inconvenient task, and may push it off for some time in the future. And in a heartbeat and the heat of summer, the future is now.
But you may be confused about what you need to do and frantically start Googling every article on possible faults immediately. With so much information online, you may not know what applies to your situation, so you sneakily log off and pretend the problems don’t exist. However, this isn’t a long-term solution, which is why we put together this handy article on air conditioning maintenance on the Gold Coast to help you take on some of the most common problems out there.
Here are three of the most common problems that can occur to your air conditioner and the fixes we suggest.
1) You Have A Blocked Filter
Even though cleaning out your filters can be a tedious job that you seem to get stuck with every few months – choosing to ignore this simple maintenance can be quite disastrous in the long run. Blocked filters are inefficient and affect the functioning of your air conditioner. Make sure to stick to a regular maintenance schedule so that you aren’t left with expensive bills in the future because you were too busy. Uncleaned filters can also be a breeding ground for mould that IS impacting your family’s health. Click here to learn more about mould cleaning.
2) Obstructed Drainage
Few people realise that their air conditioner makes more than 100 litres of water every day. Once you learn this, it’s no surprise to learn that your drain could become blocked, especially when it hasn’t been adequately maintained, and this could lead to hazardous leaks into your unit itself. You’ll also be surprised to find all sorts of strange things in your drain, from dirt and dust build-up to hair – it can be a slimy activity you would rather avoid. That’s why we recommend you add your drain to your quarterly air conditioner maintenance schedule.
3) Inadequate Maintenance
Inadequate maintenance is often the leading cause for most of our repair callouts, and we know how frustrating it can be on homeowners. This is why we always urge customers during installation to make sure they care for their air conditioners to keep them in tip-top condition. There’s are a few steps you can take to ensure your air conditioner is regularly maintained. Firstly, get to know your air con! After you know and feel comfortable with your system, you can know go ahead and do the basic maintenance. Clean or replace the filters, some unit filters are disposable while some are re-usable and can be cleaned with water. As a common maintenance rule, you should clean your air conditioner filters every two weeks.
