Air Conditioning has become an essential part of many of our lives in humid Singapore. Many of us tend to use our air conditioners on a regular basis making it a necessity to periodically service and clean your air conditioners often on a regular basis.
Although it is important to clean our air conditioner, it is often overlooked that our air conditioner compressor also needs to be serviced and cleaned which is often neglected since is it often out of sight, and out of mind.
The air conditioner compressor is the most important component of an air conditioner system. It functions as the heart of your air conditioning unit by constantly converting the warm air in your home and office into water which is being disposed of in toilets for the home and outdoor drainage for offices.
As with all electronics, maintenance due to usage and replacement of wear and tear parts becomes a necessity in ensuring the longevity of your air conditioner system.
How Does the Air Conditioner Compressor Work?
By understanding the purpose of your air conditioner compressor, you will understand how an entire air conditioner system functions.
As we explained earlier, the purpose of a compressor is the circulate cool air into your home or office while at the same time, removing any humidity and warm air by condensing air into the water which flows down the aircon drainage pipe. This constant circulation of air will eventually cool your home or office.
How to Maintain Your Aircon Compressor?
As with most homes and offices in Singapore, most compressors can be found either on the aircon ledge or suspended along the ceiling or master bedroom window, exposing the compressor to the harsh weather and constant dirt and bugs from the surrounding.
As a homeowner, you can:
- Check periodically if there are any leaves or bugs stuck in the filter of your aircon compressor
- Request for an aircon compressor cleaning and inspection once a year
- Request for inspection of aircon refringent gas level during each cleaning and maintenance session.
Now that you know the importance of an aircon compressor, the next time when you’re servicing and maintaining your aircon, why not request to have your aircon compressor inspected? As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, especially for home appliances such as air conditioners.
