Maintaining your air conditioner unit will ensure that it is ready to properly cool your home throughout the summer. Keeping your unit in good condition is also important for your wallet, lack of AC maintenance will shortens a unit’s lifespan by 5-10 years, it meaning you will have to buy a new AC sooner. Lack of maintenance also results in a 5% efficiency loss, which may cause in higher electricity bills.
For this matter, we will consider the costs of servicing an air conditioning unit. A flat fee for a one-time maintenance visit costs Rs.399/- which will cover the general service dry service, wet service filter cleaning etc..
You need to get it done your air conditioning maintenance done at least once a year, in the summer. Doing it in the spring summer will allow your technician to repair any damage the unit might have acquired during the winter, and make it ready just in time for the arrival of warmer temperatures. However, it is best to do maintenance twice a year in the spring and fall. Planing to this bi-annual schedule will keep your unit running perfectly.
Air conditioning units work by using evaporator and condenser coils to remove heat from the air in your home. Warm household air blows through the evaporator coils, which transfer the heat into refrigerant vapor, which is then moved to the condenser in the outdoor part of the unit. The condenser coils turn the now-warm refrigerant vapor into liquid, allowing the heat to be dispersed outside and away from your home.
Both evaporator and condenser coils are integral to the function of your air conditioner, and must be properly maintained in order for the unit to work efficiently.
Maintenance process : Replacement of air filters dirty filters can lower your AC’s efficiency and cause damage. You can perform monthly checks and cleanings yourself. If your AC is in constant use, you’ll need to replace the filters once per month to keep the unit running properly. Filters typically cost Rs.350-Rs.850 approximately. Some filters are reusable and only need regular cleaning.
Clean evaporator and condenser coils: if the coils are caked with debris, they can not remove the heat from your air conditioner as well. Badly damaged coils may need to be replaced. Replacing evaporator coils can cost $230-$400. Replacement condenser coils can cost as much as Rs.4000/-.
Remove surrounding debris: any fallen leaves or greenery that has grown too close to the AC unit should be cleared and trimmed. Comb coil fins: combing coil fins restores their original form, removing blockage-causing bends and make it easier to release warm air.
Clean clogged drains: clogged drains can cause fluid in your unit to accumulate, leading to humidity and water damage in your AC.
Lubricate moving parts: lubrication will reduce friction and the amount of electricity needed for your unit to normally function.
Tighten electrical connections: loose connections can be hazardous and cause your system to malfunction. They can also reduce your AC’s longevity.
Your HVAC technician should always check the following during maintenance service:
Thermostat settings: the thermostat should be set for the unit to come on when it’s too warm in your home, and be off when it reaches a comfortable temperature. If your thermostat isn’t accurately programmed, it can lead to discomfort and high energy consumption.
Capacitors: if your capacitors aren’t working, your unit might not start properly.
Compressor: some HVAC problems may at first seem to be caused by a faulty compressor. Having your compressor checked can confirm whether or not it’s the cause of an issue.
Electrical connections: faulty connections can cause certain parts to not work, or your unit to not start at all.
If your AC unit is working fine, but a technician is suggesting expensive repairs, get a second opinion. We recommend getting the advice of more than one technician before committing to a costly repair.
