Aircon is one of the most important electrical appliances
for any home or office in Singapore. The burning heat and
humidity in Singapore can make it impossible for you to live
a comfortable life. But if your Aircon is not properly
maintained, then you will not be able to get any good result
with it. Good thing is that there are so many DIY
maintenance thing that you can do for your Aircon and you
can get a comfortable result with that. But some Aircon
maintenance things are there that you should never try to
DIY, in any condition. In case, you want to know what air
what aircon maintenance you should never DIY, then following
are some suggestions that can help you in this regard.
Handling refrigerant: The
refrigerant in your Aircon is an important element for
cooling and proper temperature in your house. If you will
have 10% reduction of coolant in your Aircon, then it will
increase 20% load on the system. That means it will give 20%
less cooling, it will consume 20% more electricity and you
will have problems as well. If you are assuming you can fill
the coolant with DIY your method, then you are very much
wrong about it. You have to understand that the coolant
refilling needs special tools or equipment’s and that is not
safe either for you. If you will do it in an improper
manner, then you may end up having various health issues.
Also, if you will do it in a wrong way,
then you may remove all the coolant from your Aircon instead
of topping it up. But if you will call an expert instead of
DIY, then you will not have to worry about the damage or
loss part. Nor you will have any issues because an HVAC
expert will take proper steps for topping up the coolant
inside your Aircon and it will make sure you get the best
cooling after this work is done.
Cleaning from inside: If you
want to clean your Aircon from outside, that is ok, but you
shall never think about cleaning it from inside in a DIY
project. You must understand that an Aircon can have several
small instruments in it that may be very delicate and if you
will handle them in an improper manner, then you may end up
damaging that. To avoid any kind of damage in your Aircon or
its internal part, you should simply avoid cleaning it from
When I say, avoid cleaning it from
inside, then I say that for internet and external unit both.
Sometimes people think they can clean internal or external
unit without having any damage to it. That DIY project can
give negative impact to you and you may end up investing
more money into the repairing part instead of correcting it.
Replacing parts: If you want to
change the air filter for your Aircon, then you can always
DIY, but apart from that you should never think about
replacing other parts of your Aircon. You must understand
that if you will try to replace the internal parts by
yourself, then you may or may not get the optimum result
with it. In case, you will replace the parts in a wrong way,
then you may end up damaging your Aircon as well.
So, it is advised that you should try
to replace only those parts by yourself that are allowed by
the company. Other than those things, you should never try
the DIY method for part replacement. It will keep you away
from any kind of complication and you will be able to get a
good result as well with your Aircon maintenance.
Changes in electrical: If you
get any kind of complication or issues in your Aircon due to
electrical issues, then you should never try to DIY for the
resolution of it. If you are well aware of the electrical
connections and other things, then I can’t ask you to stay
put, but if that is not the case, then you should not do it
yourself. If you will do it yourself, then you will end up
having a lot of issues in it and you might get some electric
shock as well.
Another drawback of changing your
electrical cables or other things is that it may create a
short circuit in your entire house as well. I don’t need to
explain that, it will not be a safe thing or your house or
for your family members as well. So, try not to make this
kind of Aircon maintained as well in any condition.
Replacing the location: If you
want to replace the Aircon from one location to other
location, then DIY will be the dumbest mistake by you. In
shifting or replacing the Aircon location, you will have to
do a lot of things that need special tools and preciseness.
Other than this, you may need to take extra hands as well
for shifting your Aircon from one location to other.
If you will do the replacement work by
yourself, then you are going to have a complication as well.
So, if that is this kind of situation, then you should make
sure you hire someone who is an expert and experienced in
this work. That will make sure you do not get any kind of
issues or complication in the final outcome and you get the
best result as well with ease.
In addition to these things, it is also
advised that you ask some expert to check your Aircon in a
regular manner. The basic DIY maintenance tips can keep you
away from some bigger issues, but if you will completely
ignore experts help, then you will have nothing else but the
problem in this work. Also, in some DIY work, you may get
few troubles while doing the work. If you notice such
issues, then also you should call and expert instead of
doing that work by yourself and increasing complication in
the work instead of solving it.
