If a couple of years ago the air conditioner was considered expensive equipment that not all users could afford, now it is a vital device. Air conditioners are now found not only in office buildings but also in ordinary houses and apartments.
Many users began to think about the expression “comfortable life”, associating it with climate technology.
If you already have such a mechanism or are just going to buy it, read our tips on its operation, which can be very useful for you.
– When operating the air conditioner, there may be some malfunctions that you can eliminate yourself. If the device began to work slower, then you may need to clean its filter. To do this, you can use a vacuum cleaner or rinse it with warm water and a soft sponge. If such cleaning did not give any results, it is better to call a qualified SDAC Heating & Air Conditioning technician.
– In order to avoid colds, install oscillating blinds. If you experiment a little with the dampers, you can eliminate the direct airflow, even if the person is sitting very close to the air conditioner.
– If your unit does not have a self-defrost function, the outdoor unit may freeze and stop functioning properly. This can happen at a time when the temperature outside is below zero, and you have switched the mechanism to the heating mode of the apartment. To get rid of this problem, start the cooling mode: warm air from the room will pass through the outdoor unit of the air conditioner and thus warm it up.
– The air conditioner works most effectively in the off-season, that is when the heating has not yet been turned off, but it is not so cold outside.
– Refrigerants used in modern models of air conditioners are completely safe, but still do not bring them close to the source of the fire.
– In addition to cooling the air in the room, such devices can also dry it. Therefore, it is better to use a humidifier.
– The air conditioner should work only in a room with closed windows and doors, otherwise, the air conditioner will not be able to provide the desired temperature.
– Maintenance of such equipment should include such procedures as cleaning the filter, charging the refrigerant, checking the electrical parts of the device, as well as lubricating the air conditioner fan.
– It is necessary to check and clean the air conditioner at least twice a year.
