Window air conditoning units: Do they need maintaining?


Dear James:

Yes, window air conditioning units do require regular routine maintenance to help ensure that they operate properly and energy efficiently, and it will help them to extend their useful lives. There are three key maintenance tasks that you should do for your window air conditioning unit:

1) Replace or wash the air filter (once a month during the cooling season).

2) Clean the outside section of the condenser unit (once a year in April, prior to the cooling season).

3) Covering (and uncovering) the outside condenser unit (before and after the off-season).

You can find more information on the Air Conditioning (Room) webpage of the Maintenance Library at:

Hope this is helpful.
