Keeping your air conditioner’s filters clean is important. It ensures your air conditioner is working at its peak performance all year round and keeps your running costs down.
“How do you clean the filters?” is one of the most common questions our customers ask us. The truth is its a very easy job that will take you 10 minutes or so every few months.
You’ll need easy access to the filter (or return air grill). You’ll need to use a ladder, so please ensure its in a safe position with all legs stable on level ground. If you are unable to use a ladder, please get in touch and we’ll assist you.
Remove the screw or latch on the filter and open it up carefully.
Slide the filter out of position.
Wash the filter under running water. Position the filter so that the water runs through from the opposite side of where the dust is. If you have outdoor access, using a hose is ideal. If indoors, run the filters under the tap in the kitchen or laundry sink.
If your unit is in a kitchen and there is grease build up on the filters, you may need to use a brush with soapy water to remove all the dust and grime.
Shake the excess water off the filter.
Slide the filters back into the unit, ensuring they sit in their guides correctly.
Carefully close the filter, and secure the fastening.
Enjoy your air conditioning!
