Maintaining Your Ducted Air Conditioning System Properly

A ducted air conditioning system is a great way to keep the home comfortable. It allows you to condition the entire house or choose the rooms you wish to keep cool or warm. Every appliance installed at our home demands maintenance. A regular cleaning, or changing worn-out parts would add to the longevity of the appliance. 

The Air Filter of the air conditioner takes care of the majority of pollutants. Air ducts are also very important and demand cleaning. If you have a ducted Air Conditioner that was idle all winter, or if you wish to install a new Air conditioner, here are some of the important points and related information which will help you take better care of your Air Conditioner.

Advantages of Ducted Air Conditioning Maintenance

Apart from enhancing the life of the AC, maintaining it on a regular basis ensures that the equipment runs as it should and provides chilled air without enhancing your energy bills, which is likely when the equipment’s compressor runs not stop. 

The thermostat, which lies behind the filter, switches off the AC’s compressor when the desired temperature has been reached, and switches on the compressor when the air temperature inside the room rises beyond a set limit. A dirty filter does not permit the air to pass through it and reach the thermostat.
