Cleaning the air filters
Have you ever encountered air conditioners being not cold enough, causing your utility bills to increase unreasonably, or even triggering anyone at home who suffers from asthma or respiratory allergies? These problems are mainly due to dust and dirt trapped on the air filters and choke up the system overtime. While regular DIY cleaning of the air filters would help to reap the benefits, it may not be as effective as getting professional help.
Servicing your air-conditioners
Besides regular DIY cleaning of air filters, to remove impurities from the whole air-conditioning system thoroughly will require professional help. Internal components, such as drain pan and drainage pipe, require well-trained professional technicians to disassemble for cleaning and re-assemble properly.
For laymen who are not technically trained, we strongly advise you not to service the air-conditioners yourself to prevent unnecessarily trouble or damaging the parts accidentally.
