Common questions from the users when they call our air conditioning repair service:
When and how should filters be cleaned?
In a split system, the filters are found by lifting the front cover of the device. To remove the filters, you must remove them by pulling down and lifting a small tab, which you will easily locate in the frame of the plastic filters. When cleaning them, simply put them under the tap or use a soft bristle brush.
To replace the filters, once they are dry, you just have to put them back in place.
Why does the air conditioner smell bad?
The unpleasant smell may be due to the proliferation of microorganisms in the device due to the condensation of water in the evaporator.
The humidity of the evaporator promotes the formation of mold, which is the main cause of the bad smell that the air conditioning equipment gives off. The evaporator is an copper/aluminum piece inside the device, a kind of grilles like the car radiator, and that is the part of the equipment that must be cleaned and disinfected.
It is not something that users can do on their own, since you have to disassemble the front of the equipment and add special disinfectant products. Request our professional help since cleaning the internal battery is somewhat delicate and requires certain technical knowledge.
On the other hand, the bad odors of the air conditioning can also come from the drainage of the equipment if the installers did not place a siphon. To solve this problem, a siphon must be placed on the condensate drain line, and it must also be done by a professional.
Why does the air conditioner drop water and what steps should I take to repair it?
It is completely normal for the air conditioner to release or dump water down the drain pipe, as this is a sign of proper functioning. The amount of water generated by the equipment depends on the relative humidity of the environment, but whenever there is water, it is that the evaporator is cooling and condenses the humidity of the air.
If the water falls or drips where it should not, that is, through the housing of the indoor unit, or splashes through the front, the first thing to do is check the correct drainage of the device.
When the drain pipe becomes clogged, water cannot flow out.
If there is a container or carafe in the water outlet, it is important to ensure that it is not full, because if it is full and the tube is submerged, the water will overflow the condensate tray of the indoor unit.
But if the problem is not one of those mentioned, it may be that the equipment’s evaporator produces ice due to lack of refrigerant or dirt accumulated in filters or turbines. In this case it is necessary to observe if the evaporator is frozen to rule out this cause or not, and the most convenient thing is to notify our technical service to make a few checks and solve the problem.

Why does the air conditioning not cool? I need an «air conditioner repair near me» company!
People often think that when the air conditioner does not cool, it is enough to do a gas refill. But this is not so. If the equipment does not cool it may be that there is a leak, that it will have to be searched and repaired, or it may be that a fan, a plate, the compressor, etc. have been broken.
We recommend once again that you put yourself in the hands of our technical assistance service to obtain an accurate diagnosis of the problems of your air conditioning equipment.
