Air Conditioner's Routine Maintenance

In order to maintain an air conditioner operating smoothly and efficiently for as long as feasible, frequent maintenance must be performed on its filters, coils, and fins. Your air conditioner will lose efficiency and consume more energy if you don’t do periodic maintenance on it.

A/C unit filters Usages

The single most crucial thing you can do to maintain your air conditioner and keep it running at maximum efficiency is to routinely clean or replace its filters. A system’s efficacy is significantly decreased by blocked or unclean filters because they restrict airflow. The ability of the evaporator coil to absorb heat is further decreased when airflow is restricted because some air may circumvent the filter and deposit dirt straight onto the coil. You may cut the energy usage of your air conditioner by up to 15% by replacing a filthy filter with a clean one. Or you can simply go for the air conditioning service now.

Anywhere along the return duct’s length may have filters installed in a central air conditioning system. Most central air conditioners have filters incorporated into the unit or into the wall, ceiling, or both. The side of an air conditioner’s grill that faces the room is normally filtered.

While certain filters may be reused again, others must be changed often. There are several possibilities, each with varying levels of efficiency. Throughout the heating and cooling seasons, the filter or filters in your air conditioner should be cleaned or changed at least once every two months. If your air conditioner is used regularly, it is situated in a dusty area, or you have furry pets, filters may need to be replaced more frequently.

For use in temperature control systems, AC coils

The evaporator coil and condenser coil of an air conditioner will get dirty after many months or perhaps several years of use. If you keep the filter clean, the evaporator coil will last longer between cleanings. But with time, the evaporator coil will become more and more dirty. By obstructing airflow and serving as insulation, this filth decreases the coil’s efficiency by lowering its capacity to absorb heat.

Twisting Fins

Evaporator and condenser coils’ aluminium fins are prone to bending, which might obstruct airflow. A device called a “fin comb” is offered by air conditioner wholesalers that may be used to return the fins to a condition that is quite close to when they were initially installed.

Drains for Condensation

To do this, periodically pass a strong wire through the device’s drain ports. Walls and carpets may get discoloured as a result of an AC being unable to remove too much moisture from the air due to clogged drain channels.


At the beginning of each cooling season, check to see whether the seal between the air conditioner and the window frame is making contact with the metal casing of the unit. This seal might get damaged by moisture, which could result in conditioned air leaking out of your home.
