The electric appliances are like human beings; they require regular care and attention. The only difference is that humans are fortunate enough to be able to express when they need care, and appliances cannot. In return, they give out a few signals. Hence, air conditioning service, especially of the Daikin split system, is vital to be done regularly. The systems coils, filters, or the fins do require regular maintenance to function adequately throughout the season. Neglecting the maintain ace of the system does reduce the life and performance.
Air Conditioner Filters
One of the most crucial tasks of an effective air conditioner service is to able to ensure the smooth working of your air conditioners is cleaning the filters. The filters vary regularly get clogged or dirty and eventually block the airflow and reduce the efficiency of the system. When there is an obstruction in the normal airflow, the air which passes through the filters gets polluted with all the dirt and dust particles into the evaporator coil and helps in impairing the heat-absorbing capacity of the loop. Hence, it becomes all the more important to replace a clogged filter with a cleaner version, which reduces the energy consumption of the air conditioner right from 5% to 15%.
Air Conditioner Coils
The evaporator’s coils and condenser coils of the air conditioner get dirty over time and require timely servicing. A clean filter prevents the loops from evaporating and soiling faster. However, with time the evaporator coil is still able to collect dirt, which eventually reduces the flow of air and results in the insulation of the coil and its ability to absorb heat properly. To avoid such a scenario, it is essential to check the coiling evaporators each year and get them clean timely.
There are these condenser coils which tend to become dirty due to the polluted outdoor environment. The dirt on these condenser coils can easily be noticed and sent for cleaning. It becomes essential to minimize all the debris or the dirt which forms near these condensers’ unit. The potential sources of all of this dirt and debris can be falling off the leaves, dryer vents, lawnmowers, etc.
It is essential to clean the entire area around the coil by removing the smallest of dirt or debris and trimming back the foliage back to at least 2 feet, which are 0.6 meters, which give space for adequate flow of air around the condenser.
Coil fins made of aluminum are placed on the condensers and evaporators can very quickly be bent and can result in blockage of the air flows right through the coil. Many of the air conditioning wholesalers in the market do sell a tool known as ‘Fin Comb,’ which helps in combing the fins back into its original state.
Not very often, but at times one can always pass a wire through the channels. The channels which are clogged result in a reduction of humidity, which results in excess moisture and discoloring of the carpets and walls.
