3 Key Points to Consider When Hiring a Professional Air Conditioner Cleaning Technician for Your Smart Home

In Hong Kong's scorching summers, relying on air conditioners is a common necessity. However, with the onset of warmer weather, air conditioners often accumulate dust and harbor bacteria and mold due to the humidity of spring. Therefore, before revving up your air conditioner for the summer, it's advisable to have a professional technician perform a deep cleaning to ensure optimal cooling and indoor air quality. Here are three essential considerations when hiring a professional air conditioner cleaning service, explained in this Moorgenzine article.

Key Points:

  • Factors Affecting Technician Charges
  • Service Details to Note
  • Preparing for the Cleaning Service
  • DIY Cleaning Option
  • Tips for Daily Maintenance

Factors Affecting Technician Charges

When hiring a professional technician, various factors can influence the service charges. These include the size of the air conditioner unit, geographical location, service scope (e.g., inspection and component maintenance), workdays versus holidays, indoor ceiling height, and available space around the air conditioner unit.

Service Details to Note

Depending on the type of air conditioner unit (e.g., window-type or split-type), there are specific service details to consider. For window-type units, ensure sufficient space for on-site cleaning to avoid additional charges for unit removal. For split-type units, typically only indoor units are cleaned, and additional arrangements or costs may apply for outdoor unit cleaning. Common service details encompass pre-service unit inspection, post-service performance checks, and warranty considerations for any damages incurred during cleaning.

Preparing for the Cleaning Service

Prior to the cleaning service, it's essential to clear space around the air conditioner unit to facilitate on-site cleaning. Additionally, remove any nearby items to prevent potential damage or contamination. If experiencing unusual odors or inadequate cooling even after cleaning, consider scheduling a follow-up inspection.

DIY Cleaning Option

While professional cleaning services are recommended, DIY cleaning is also feasible with affordable tools such as foam cleaner, stiff-bristled brush, spray bottle, and old cloth. However, DIY cleaning should be performed cautiously to avoid damaging the unit or compromising safety.

Tips for Daily Maintenance

To prolong the lifespan of your air conditioner and maintain optimal performance, adopt these daily maintenance tips: regularly clean the air filter, ensure proper ventilation around the unit, set moderate temperature settings to conserve energy, use fans to enhance air circulation, and employ proper storage practices during extended periods of non-use.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can ensure a comfortable and healthy indoor environment throughout the seasons. For further inquiries about smart home solutions, feel free to contact Moorgen.
