Keeping Your Air Conditioning Unit Clean

Keeping Your Air Conditioning Unit Clean

Your air conditioner is a vital part of your family home, and just like any other fixture, you need to take steps to keep it clean.

A well-maintained air conditioner is necessary for better air quality, and to reduce the chances of infection and bacteria in the machine itself.

If you would like to know how to help keep the air conditioning in your Byron Bay home clean, then Coughran Electrical can give you a few tips.


Look at your instruction manual


When it was installed, your AC unit will have had an instruction manual that tells you all about the machine, including how to open it up and clean it.

If you are not able to find the manual, it could be possible for you to locate a copy online that can be downloaded.


Always turn off the machine


Any time that you are about to start messing with the machine, it is important that you take the time to turn the unit off.

There should be a button on the wall which turns the unit on and off, so use this to power down your air conditioner.


Seek advice from the experts


If you are not confident that you know what you are doing, then you might need to seek help from experts in air conditioning servicing.

We can assist you over the phone and send out a service team to make sure your AC is properly cleaned.


Remove the dust filters


The most important area to clean is the dust filters. They will need regular cleaning, more often than any other part of the unit.

The dirtier the filter is, the more effort it will take for the AC to cool down your room, and the more likely it is that the filters will be contaminated with bacteria and other unpleasant things


Clean the outside unit


The external part of your AC unit is another area where debris and bacteria can gain access to your home.

It is important that the external parts are free of plants, particularly toxic plants, and you should also try to vacuum the air intake part, as this prevents dust from entering the home.
