Split system air conditioners continue to be the most popular systems used worldwide since they can be installed in any room in the house. Therefore, they help save power costs and maintenance costs, as well. A split air-conditioner is designed in a manner that allows for it to be installed on the wall, with minimal usage of space in the room.
Here are 6 ways in which you can ensure that your split air conditioning system works efficiently:





1. Ensure that the air conditioning system is cleaned regularly

Any exposed surface should be wiped clean, both inside and on the outside. Debris, vines, pine needles and leaves can clog the exterior part of the central air unit while dust may affect the operation of the split system air conditioner.

2. Change the filters on a regular basis

The system’s filters play a critical role in the functioning of the system as they trap the dirt and contaminants in the air that passes through. Therefore, it’s of paramount importance that they be changed twice a year. You should inspect your filters every month to ensure that they are not clogged or damaged. A damaged filter will cause the dirt in the air to bypass the filter; as a consequence, this can cause the dirt to build up on the other components of your system. This will eventually cause your entire system to fail. Changing your filters regularly will save you the agony of having to live with a faulty system, and will also ensure that you don’t spend a lot of money working on repairs that could have been prevented.

3. Be aware of any abnormal sounds or smells

It’s advisable to turn your split AC on well before the upcoming summer season and check for abnormal behaviour, smells or sounds. A knocking or rattling sound could mean anything from a dislodged fan belt or a burnt blower motor. In any case, you should consult a professional to ascertain the fault in your system and get it repaired or replace the faulty part at the earliest.

4. Check the accuracy of the thermostat

The thermostat of a central air conditioning unit may fail to function effectively and it’s critical to have its accuracy checked regularly. You can buy another thermometer and compare the temperature readings that are displayed. The batteries that are used in programmable systems should be changed once a year as this helps to ensure a high level of consistency, proper cooling and heat control.

The air inlets in your home should be sealed properly to prevent hot air from entering the system and the cool air from escaping. Ensure that any cracks are fixed, gaps blocked and windows closed completely. Also, spaces that are located below the doors should be closed completely.
