Who is thinking about air-conditioning at this time of year in Puerto Vallarta, when our temperatures are absolutely perfect? But while there is certainly no need to be using the a/c in your Puerto Vallarta home or condo right now, performing regular maintenance adds to the lifespan of your units and has them ready for the summer season. We have a few easy, do-it-yourself tips for air-conditioners to keep them in great shape.
- While units are turned off, open the cover and remove the filter from your air-conditioning unit.
- Give a light spray to the interior coil of your a/c unit with a cleaning agent designed specifically to help remove dirt, dust, smoke and mildew from your unit. These sprays can be purchased at Home Depot or other hardware stores.
- Clean the filter with plain tap water and allow to dry.
- Replace the filter and cover and run your air-conditioner for 10 to 15 minutes.
That’s it! Four quick and easy steps to help keep dirt and build up from becoming a harder to manage problem with your air-conditioning units. It is a great idea to have a professional come in to your Puerto Vallarta property once a year to give all your units an expert maintenance visit, but in the meantime, adding quick DIY attention to your spring-cleaning list will help prolong the life of your units.
