ACs might seem like really complicated contraptions and that might deter you from handling them. But in reality, if you familiarise yourself with the workings of an air conditioning unit, you will be able to take it apart and clean it yourself. In most cases however, you don’t really even have to take your AC apart. The expert team here at Artisan Air has put together some tips and tricks on how to clean your AC. So, without further ado, let’s get right into it!


Check the Manual

First thing’s first, and that’s making sure you are safe while you clean your AC. Always turn off your AC before attempting to clean it. Read the manual before you start just to be safe.

The Outdoor Unit

A simple brush and hand picking the larger debris and leaves should do the trick. Make sure no birds nest in or around the unit. Sweep away cobwebs too if they form. A vacuum cleaner can come in handy.

The Indoor Unit

The most important bit to clean in the indoor unit are the filters. Pop off the plastic cover according to the manual. Use a brush to clean the filters. This will make your AC run better. Manufacturers recommend you do this every few weeks.

Don’t Touch

Although you might wish to take your AC apart and clean the condenser coils yourself, we recommend that you leave this job to the professionals. Condenser coils are sensitive and they don’t get dirty easily anyway.
