Like every other appliance in your home, window air conditioners need maintenance. When you do not care for your window air conditioner, it will not perform at peak efficiency. Don’t let that happen in your home! Below are some tips that will help you maintain your window air conditioner this season.
- 1. First and foremost, remember to clean your air conditioner’s air filter once a month. To do this, wash the filter screen and the grill with soap, water and bleach. This will keep mold growth at bay.
- 2. Next on the agenda, clean the air conditioner coils that are located under the filter. Simply vacuum the evaporator coils and condenser coils to remove any dust or dirt.
- 3. Last but certainly not least, be sure to straighten out coil fins that are bent with a fin comb. Best of all, fin combs are inexpensive and can be purchased at your local hardware store.
