'Cool' tips to beat the heat

Friday, March 03, 2017

With the winter having bid goodbye to Mumbai, things are heating up quite literally. And, it’s the time most of us switch on the AC. Here are a few useful tips on how to get the best out of your air conditioner this summer

  • Always run your air-conditioner for a few minutes before you need to use it.
  • Change the filters regularly. Dirty filters restrict air flow, reducing efficiency and in the worst case, can cause the evaporator to ice up.
  • The first thing to check before turning on your unit is to make sure the condensing unit located outside is not covered up. The unit needs to draw air into the system in order to have something to cool and circulate inside, but the process is hindered if it cannot pull in enough outside air.
  • Clean obvious obstructions such as newspaper etc. from around the exterior of the air-conditioner.
  • Be sure the thermostat is set in the cooling mode. Just setting the dial below room temperature will not activate the air-conditioning if it is set in the heat mode.
  • Do not cover the condenser in order to protect it from the elements during the winter; they are designed for outdoor installation only.
  • To clean the air-conditioner coils, make sure the power from your unit is disconnected first.
  • A thoroughly cleaned air-conditioning unit will operate at top efficiency so try to keep the conditioner as clean as possible to make the most out of it.
  • Giving your air-conditioning system a good electrostatic air filter is the best thing you can do for your air-conditioner. A good air filter will extend the life of your air-conditioner because the important parts, like the blower assembly, the cooling coil, and other inner parts will stay cleaner, operate more efficiently and last longer.
  • Ensure direct sunlight does not enter the air-conditioned space, particularly in the afternoons.
