Wall mounted air conditioner cleaning

How do I know if I need to clean my air conditioner?

It is very easy to know if you should clean your wall air conditioner. First, if you neglected to clean the filters in your air conditioner, it is likely that your coil is already dirty. To check this, you need to remove your filters and look at the condition of the coil, you can also look at where the air comes out to see if your fan is dirty. If your coil or fan (roller) is dirty, you should clean your wall air conditioner.

 

What are the risks of a poorly maintained air conditioner?

The risks are enormous, if your air conditioner has not been cleaned for several years, it can be very dangerous for your health because the air quality can be very bad inside your house. Dirty filters can cause several problems:

Asthma
Respiratory diseases
Lung cancer
Lung infections
Development of bacteria
Mold formation

What are the steps for a good cleaning?

First, the technician therefore checked if your air conditioning is working well to make sure that the unit does not cause filtration or other problems. Second, you have to dismantle the air conditioner box to easily access the coil because this is the section you want to clean. Then the specialist will have to install the devices to recover all the dirt that is in the device so as not to splash on your walls and floors.

After all these steps have been completed, clean the coil using a chemical specially designed to clean the refrigeration coils (it is very important that the technician does not use an acid solution as this will damage the coil). This solution must be anti-bacterial to prevent the formation of mold and bacteria in the future. Finally, the technician must rinse your device with water to remove the excess accumulated on the fins of the coil.

How often should we clean our air conditioner?

It depends on each device because the dust level is different in each home. If you have pets cleaning may be necessary more often. Normally air conditioner cleaning should be done every 4-5 years

Before cleaning your wall-mounted air conditioning system, be sure to turn off the power and disconnect the power supply.

Cleaning the evaporator (indoor unit)

Clean the indoor unit with a vacuum cleaner, scrub the unit with warm, soapy water, then dry with a soft, clean cloth.

During a period of normal operation, the filter included in the device should be cleaned every two weeks of use. If dust accumulates on the filter, the air flow will be considerably reduced, which will lower the operating efficiency at will increase the noise of and the energy consumption of the device. The dust must be eliminated either by a vacuum cleaner, either by washing in a solution of mild detergent and lukewarm water. If you are cleaning the filter, be sure to let it dry completely before reinstalling it in your appliance

If your device has a plasma filter, an indicator light will notify you when it needs to be cleaned. To clean it, soak it in warm soapy water. The lifespan of plasma filters is 6 to 8 years.

Cleaning the condenser (outdoor unit)

To keep your device in good condition, external cleaning is essential. Just wipe the unit with a damp cloth or a dry cloth and with a garden hose make sure the outdoor coil is free of litter or pollen.

Finally, the entire system requires special care, a maintenance contract could prove to be a necessity in the event of specific maintenance which would require the services of a professional.
