Recommendations on maintenance in air conditioning equipment

aire acondicionado

Summer brings months of intense heat, which led to increased use of air conditioners to cool and clean your office environment. According to data from Conagua, some cities in Mexico reached temperatures above 38°C during this time of year.

To prevent any failure in your equipment due to constant use, promote proper operation and extend its useful life, Trane recommends periodically maintaining your equipment to maintain a clean, cool and contaminant-free climate; in addition to having a saving in energy consumption and avoiding expensive repairs.

Here are some tips for the improvement and maintenance of air conditioners:

Seasonal preventive maintenance
It is important to maintain any air conditioning equipment, particularly in coastal areas where corrosion is greatest and where it is necessary to clean the coil or filters of the air systems installed in homes, hotels or companies. The recommendation for these areas is to do it every six months to achieve the goal of extending their useful life.

Keep your systems running properly by following these tips and schedule an ordinary service of revision before the hot or cold seasons.

Monthly maintenance activities of air conditioning systems
Here are some activities that can be done on a regular basis to help the system keep running efficiently throughout the year.
• Check the air return filter monthly and change it if necessary.
• Clean debris and move it away from the compressor to keep air flowing.
• Contact a specialized technician if you hear any abnormal noise.

When to contact an air conditioning professional?
Even when all routine service tasks are scheduled and these preventive maintenance suggestions are followed, heating and air conditioning systems sometimes fail. That is why it is important to know what to listen to and observe, to detect which problems need immediate solution.

Contact an air conditioning system professional:
• If your energy consumption increases even if the range of use is the same.
• If your air conditioning or heating system does not maintain a good temperature level.
• If any part of your air conditioning system has been underwater.
• If you smell a burnt cable, turn off your unit immediately.

How to get your home to optimize energy?
These suggestions can help you save money on paying your electricity bill and reduce your use of fossil fuels.
• Make sure that the place where your air conditioning system is installed is properly ventilated.
• Close blinds or curtains to block sunlight during the warmest time of day.
• Install ceiling fans counterclockwise.

Heating system efficiency:
• Make sure your home is properly insulated so that heat does not escape.
• Close windows to reduce the outflow of hot air from your home.
• Make sure all heat vents are free of clogging.
• Lower the temperature of the thermostat when there are a large number of guests.

Los centros hospitalarios tienen requerimientos de salas o zonas de presión positiva y negativa con el objetivo de proteger a sus pacientes, trabajadores y usuarios de las áreas de infecciosos (salas de presión negativa) o inmunodeprimidos (salas de presión positiva). Estos espacios aislados por diferencias de presión se consiguen a través de los sistemas de control de los equipos de climatización de las instalaciones.
