The cleaning of your air conditioner is proportional to its energy consumption. Over time, when the dust accumulation starts to build up on the air conditioner and clogged the filter, the air conditioner has to work more and use more energy.

However, you can follow some simple tips to keep your air conditioner run smoothly.
While air conditioner cleaning seems a boring work, by completing it you can ensure a smooth air conditioner operation.
Keep the filter clean

Keep the outdoor unit clean.

Clean the air conditioner grill.
Clean the indoor unit of the air conditioner from outside as well. Dust and debris also accumulate on the grilles, use a vacuum cleaner to keep it clean. These dust will later slip into the air conditioner and clog the filter.
