How to clean the air conditioner yourself?

Air conditioners have long become a piece of essential equipment in every home because thanks to such devices you can create the necessary microclimate in the house. Air conditioning helps us to escape from the summer heat and warm up in the winter season.

But, unfortunately, not everyone knows that such devices need maintenance and constant cleaning. Otherwise, the device will not work efficiently and will eventually fail. In addition, a dirty air conditioner can also harm your health. You can clean the air conditioner both with the help of qualified specialists and with your own hands. It is clear that all models of air conditioners are different and may differ from each other in some features. Therefore, in order to avoid mistakes and not harm the device even more, carefully read the instructions for the air conditioner.

The air conditioner filter is one of its most important elements, it is with it that the cleaning of the device begins. This element should be cleaned about once or twice a week. You can clean it with a regular vacuum cleaner, but if the filter is very dirty, it is better to rinse it. In no case should you use any detergents, as you can damage the filter itself. Do not forget that if the air conditioner broke down due to the fact that the filter was not cleaned, so the warranty service in such cases is not valid.

When cleaning the air conditioner, do not forget about the heat exchanger. This is an ordinary radiator that also needs regular cleaning. Here you can also use a vacuum cleaner, but in case of severe contamination of the part, it is better to call a service technician for such equipment. As a rule, such an element is located under the air conditioner cover or under its filter. No less attention should be paid to the outdoor unit of the air conditioner, which also clogs very quickly. It is better to remove and clean the outdoor unit with a vacuum cleaner.

If you do not know how to get to a particular air conditioner spare part, it is better to use the services of experienced professionals.
