Steps To Clean Your Air Conditioner Filters at Home

Cleaning air conditioner filters is very easy and you don’t need any professional help for cleaning filters. Here’s how you can do it by following easy steps and small tools like vacuum cleaners, air conditioner cleaning foam Norca (norca โฟม ล้าง แอร์, which is the term in Thai) or spray. 

  • Step 1: Vacuum The Ac Filter 

The very step of cleaning the filter is vacuuming it. Opening the front end of Ac is easy and almost every air conditioner comes with indicators. Open the front end and remove the filters. You’ll find all the dust on the filters. You can either use a vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust or you can dust it with a cloth. But it is highly recommended to use a vacuum because it removes all the dust without leaving anything on the filters. The main purpose of cleaning the filters is not only to cool air but also to keep the air clean. 

  • Step 2: Soak And Wash The Filter 

The next step is washing the filter. Washing the filter results in cool air. You can either soak the filter in water or use any foam to clean it. Make sure you are using antibacterial spray or foam. Dust or bacteria results in allergies. So soaking these filters and washing them properly is the next step. 

  • Step 3: Spray The Ac Filter 

After washing the filters, you need to spray the Ac filters. Use sprays that are antibacterial or antiseptic. In this way even if there’s some dust left behind after washing it doesn’t create much pollution. 

  • Step 4: Dry The Ac Filter 

Drying the Ac filter is also important. Never leave the filter even a little wet. Wet is not at all good for the good functioning of AC. So, dry it properly. You can use a dryer to dry the filters. But letting the filters dry in the sunlight is the most efficient way. As the sun kills bacteria and it’s natural it is better to let the filters dry naturally. 

So, this is how you can clean your filters at home. It is always better to have a clean air conditioner because a clean air conditioner results in an efficient air conditioner. And remember that you can clean air filters at home but if you want to get your ac unit cleaned and troubleshooted then it is suggested to take professional help at https://lkbrothersaircon.com/services/aircon-troubleshoot/
