    Maintenance Tips for Split Air Conditioning Systems

    Maintenance Tips for Split Air Conditioning Systems

    Split air conditioning systems are widespread among Australian homes and offices. The ease of use and powerful air conditioning makes them a popular choice for all. During peak summer, your systems are working at peak performance to deliver relief from the rising mercury, which can get very hot in Melbourne especially.

    To ensure that your split ac unit remains at optimal performance across the rest of summer here are a few key tips to follow.

    Replacing filters regularly

    Filters are one of the most critical components of your air conditioner. They circulate and clean the air properly, hence need to be changed frequently. As a matter of fact, dirty filters can become a source of airborne bacteria to spread throughout your house. Changing the filters depends on how often you use your split system. Generally, once a month or once every 2 months is a safe thing to do. It’s also a healthy habit to follow by vacuuming any dust, cobwebs, and grime from the filter occasionally.

    Cleaning the compressor

    Your AC’s compressor plays the role of compressing low pressure and low volume gas to convert these into high pressure and high temperature as needed for cooling. Ensuring to clean the compressor frequently will enable better cooling and better, quality air. Oil specially designed for the ACs can be used for its longevity.

    Evaporator coils

    When air passes through the air conditioning system, an evaporator coil absorbs the heat to let cold air throughout the space. By replacing old evaporator coils, you can significantly improve air flow and air circulation inside your residential or office space.

    Turning off power supply during off-peak times

    During the summer, your usage is at its peak. But towards off periods like the end of the season or perhaps when you head off for holidays during the summers, you should shut off the power supply completely instead of just turning it off. Cutting off the power supply prevents the unit from using electricity when it’s not in use.

    Regular service

    Getting your split air conditioner serviced by experienced professionals will increase its longevity and keep it performing across many summers. Service only needs to be performed every few years, unless there are noticeable, major changes in its performance.
