"The Rule Before You Cool"
Airify are warning clients with heat pumps to ensure the condensate drains are clear before using the "Cooling" mode.
Blocked air con drains lead to flooding inside the room where the unit is located.
Airify offer a full clean that includes clearing the condensate drain ensuring you don't end up with a major flood in your home.
No equipment can perform efficiently and smoothly if it doesn’t undergo regular maintenance. Your air conditioning system’s performance will steadily deteriorate if maintenance is neglected. It’s best to perform maintenance at least once a year, though twice would be most ideal.
Unless you have the experience and equipment needed to do the maintenance yourself, you should contract a HVAC professional. Still, it’s important that you know what maintenance will involve.
Here are three key tasks that must be a part of any AC maintenance routine:
Air Filter Clean
Air filters trap and eliminate dust and other particulates in the air. This prevents these tiny pollutants and pathogens from getting sucked into a room via the AC system. A dirty air filter can interfere with the smooth, unobstructed flow of air and can be much less efficient at capturing particulates.
In addition to annual or semiannual scheduled maintenance, check your air filters once a month and wash or replace them if they appear dirty. The frequency of changing your air filters is dependent on the general quality of air in your area. Places with cleaner air can get by with washing or replacing air filters quarterly.
Clear Outdoor Unit
Shrubs, long grass, dust, mud, leaves, dead insects, and other objects on and around the outdoor unit can hamper airflow, decrease heat discharge, and thus degrade the AC system’s overall function.
You should keep the outdoor unit clean and also should clear the area around it to ensure there are no obstructions. At the minimum, you should have two feet of clearance around the unit though five feet would be preferable.
Heat pump systems are charged with refrigerant at the factory. Over time and with use, tiny leaks can slowly lower the refrigerant level. The system will not work as required if the refrigerant isn’t at the factory-specified level. Check for leaks, carry out repairs to rectify any leakage, and charge refrigerant as necessary by contacting a HVAC professional.
