You've upgraded your room with a new air conditioner. It's been installed, and you'd like to see if it's up to par. Like most others, you agree that the air conditioner is good as long as it provides adequate cooling. After all, you bought a 5-star rated air conditioner from a reputable brand, and you expect it to function well, save power, and last a long time. However, the enthusiasm is fleeting. Inadequate installation procedures, as well as poor post-sale servicing or maintenance, might cause problems after the installation. With this post, we will attempt to give you with some crucial points to consider when installing and servicing your air conditioners.
The quality of the installation work and the location of the installation.
Typically, people have no notion where the best place to install an air conditioner and rely on the installation technician's recommendation. It is necessary to be knowledgeable of the installation requirements and to be able to speak with and question the installation professional.
The following are crucial considerations:
Split-system air conditioning
The site for the outdoor and indoor unit installation should be determined. The preferred site is
In case of Window AC
How you should be cautious when having your air conditioner serviced:
Observe the cleaning job while scheduling maintenance to ensure the coils are cleaned to the highest possible standard. The technician must fill out a stipulated preformat detailing the job performed and his observations of the various measurements made, particularly the current drawn by the unit when the compressor is functioning and when it is not. Make care to fill out the form completely so that it can be compared before and after the next service. Apart from cleaning, there is no further preventive maintenance for air conditioners.
Maintenance of the Air Conditioning System
Cleaning and testing for current it draws to show whether the gas pressure is as it was originally filled are the key reasons for AC maintenance. Inadequate maintenance might result in less cooling and higher electricity usage.
Maintain the insulation of connected pipes, since a lack of insulation can result in lower cooling, increased electricity usage, and water drops from the AC. Request that the technician inspect the insulation every time it is serviced.
Leakage of gas:
The rubber mounting and rubber parts used for any securing purpose may deteriorate after 5-6 years of service, and a check should be done when the service is completed. If there is degeneration, vibrations may occur, and the brazed joint may fail, allowing leakage to occur.
It is critical not only to purchase the correct product but also to ensure that the installation is completed correctly and that the product is properly maintained. A well-installed and maintained air conditioner can provide adequate cooling while using less electricity, but if it is not properly installed or maintained, it can lead to disappointment with a good buy.
