    York Air Conditioner Cleaning Steps

    For the York air conditioner to work without failures, it should be cleaned at least several times a year – before and at the end of the season. It is necessary to clean the external and internal block, to wash the drainage system. Almost all this can be done with ordinary detergents and your own hands, but some cleaning operations should be performed by a professional technician.

    Component parts should be cleaned regularly. Particular attention should be paid to coarse filters, as they are primarily clogged with dirt. Often, this procedure can be performed with the help of a vacuum cleaner, making it a duty in the process of cleaning the apartment. If the filters are too clogged, then they can be washed with a special detergent, and then rinse with water and dry.

    Besides cleaning or replacing the filters, you may also clean the evaporator, which is the main component of the internal module, with your own hands. First, you can also clean the dust with a brush or vacuum cleaner and then rinse with a disinfectant.

    It will be more difficult with fine filters, as there are elements among them that cannot be washed, then they should be replaced. These include carbon, antioxidant and antibacterial filters. Once all the components and parts have dried out, you can collect the insides in reverse order.

    • Turn off the power.
    • Remove the top panel, remove any large debris you find in the case.
    • Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft bristle nozzle to remove dust from hard-to-reach places. Be careful not to damage parts – many components can bend easily.
    • Unscrew the grille on top of the York air conditioner. The fan usually rises with the grille, so be careful not to damage the electrical connections.
    • Wipe the fan with a clean, damp cloth.
    • Clean the condenser – it has a smooth, flat surface, so the process will not take long and will not be complicated.
    • Assemble the unit. Return the fan and grille to their original position and screw them back onto the unit.
    • Leave the unit off for 12-24 hours.

      HVAC systems cleaning can improve air flow up to 25%. That means your system shouldn't be running as long as it's supposed to. Less system uptime will reduce your energy costs and will lead to lower your energy bills.
