Having air conditioning in Cairns is necessary to keep cool, especially in the intense heat of our summer.
It provides cool relief in your home or commercial building so that you can rest and relax without overheating.
In fact, air conditioning can help prevent a variety of heat related illnesses, making it a great choice for any home.
However, proper maintenance is essential to ensuring that your cooling system always works like it should.
You can rely on the experts here at Alphacool to help you get the job done right.
Clean the Filter
One of the most important ways to properly care for your air conditioner is to clean the filter on a regular basis.
You can do this either by vacuuming it or by washing it with mild soap and water.
Be sure the filter dries completely before you put it back.
You can find the recommended filter cleaning schedule in the manufacturer instructions that accompany your unit.
Keep it Clean
In addition to cleaning the filter as advised, you also need to keep the unit itself clean.
On the outside, clear away debris, dirt, and other yard waste so that you get proper air flow. Clean the fan blades as well.
On the inside portion, keep the grilles clear of dust and debris build up.
You can do this with a vacuum cleaner or with a damp rag and mild soap.
Keeping the unit clean ensures adequate air flow and ensures that your system works properly.
Use the Programmable Feature
By setting the thermostat on your air conditioner, you can control when it comes on and goes off.
Waiting to turn it on until it’s already the hottest part of the day requires the system to work harder, using more energy and costing you more money.
Setting the thermostat to the desired temperature allows for a cool house and reduces your energy usage, and therefore your energy bill goes down.
It also keeps the unit from having to work so hard to cool your home, increasing its lifespan.

Another step for proper air conditioning maintenance is regular service.
