Preparing to use your air conditioner and filter for the first time this year requires periodic maintenance. Keep the AC in top condition and know that your AC can provide an environment for mold and mildew growth if no maintenance is performed. Outside dirt and debris can accumulate inside the unit, which will affect the performance of your AC. For maintenance tips and instructions refer to your owner’s manual. Follow guidelines that the manufactures provides. Preventive measures can cut down on allergies, energy, repair costs, and help keep your AC running smoothly.
Some basic routine cleaning tips:
• Turn off the electricity to the air conditioner
• Remove AC from window
• Have a stand or table to check the air conditioner, preferably in garage or outside area
• Use a vacuum crevice tool and brush to clean the dirt and dust from internal components
• Use compressed air to thoroughly clean
• Replace or clean filters, some filters are washable with soap and water, others are disposable
Running an HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Air Purifier in your home in front of your AC will minimize airborne mold and allergens, and ensure that the air you breathe is healthy. The purpose of the HEPA air Purifier is to remove irritants such as mold, dust and bacteria that trigger allergies and eliminate volatile organic compounds that affect general health. Although there is HEPA air conditioner for windows this may be the best alternative.
