Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, depending on what time you’re watching this video. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy, checking in with you on the drive home to Hawkesbury. And today I’ve hopped out of my car and into somebody’s lounge room, just to show you in regards to air conditioners. Now air conditioners are a great invention, because they keep us cool in summer and nice and toasty warm in winter, but when they’re not working, (sigh), it makes us a little bit frustrated with the process, so we want to get that maintained well [00:00:30] so that we don’t have or we have minimal breakdowns on that machine.
One of the things that’s quite common if the air conditioner’s not heating or cooling to temperature, sometimes it can be as simple as cleaning the air filter. And what I’ve done is I’ve lifted the top section of the air conditioner, the front section of it with the two clips on either side, and then you’ll notice that that has actually exposed the three filters that are within the air conditioner.
It’s a really simple thing to do if you’re experiencing the air conditioner either not heating [00:01:00] or cooling correctly. Sometimes it’s as simple as taking that filter out, washing it under some warm water, and then putting it back in, and you’ll find that that temperature comes on correctly. Other things that may be wrong with it is the gas that is not to the height that it should be within the unit, so that needs a mechanic to actually assess that.
Um, another thing that can happen is you can sometimes get a water leak from that when the overflow is blocked, and that will come back through the unit, rather than exiting [00:01:30] through the usual channels that it does outside through the overflow. Anyway, that’s a couple of things that may help you with your air conditioners. Always best to stay on top of the maintenance. It’s like driving a car. If you don’t get it serviced regularly, it’s not going to look after you or drive you to where you wanted to be. Same thing with the air conditioner. If you don’t look after it regularly, it’s not going to keep you hot in winter and cool in summer.
Anyway, if you’ve got any questions in regards to air conditioners or the mechanics that need to … You can call [00:02:00] to help you with that process. We’re more than happy to put you in contact with them and answer any questions that you have. I’m Rachael Goldsworthy, and I look forward to catching up with you on the next video.
