With the British weather at its peak during July and August, having a reliable air conditioning unit installed in your business can make all the difference. But in order to get the most from your system you should carry out basic proactive maintenance, instead of reacting when something goes wrong.

Clean or replace the filters

The filters play a key role in the performance levels of your air conditioning unit and you should regularly check for any build-up of dust and dirt etc. If it needs cleaning, use an air blower and then some lukewarm water before allowing it some time to dry.

Check the coil fins

Use a fin comb on the internal and external part of your unit to straighten out the coil fins because over time they tend to become distorted or damaged. It’s also a good idea to clean the coil fins with a water jet pump at regular intervals to keep the system working at an optimum level. Read more about how air conditioning works.
