Wall-mounted air conditioners, often known as ductless air conditioners, split-minis (if they also supply heat), or room air conditioners, are a common solution when a home lacks an HVAC system and a window AC unit is not desired.
Similarly, air ducts or HVAC ducts are a core part of your house. Regardless of the season, they are utilized all year. However, it also means a greater chance of these ducts becoming clogged with dust.
How to Keep Your Air Ducts Clean
1. Keep Your Home Neat
2. Replace Air Filters More Frequently
Air filters are an important part of any ventilation system. The filters capture all types of air pollutants and keep the ducts clean. In addition, if you have pets in your home, you will have to replace them more frequently. There is no doubt that a clean air filter is essential for clean air ducts. Due to their highly effective filtering systems, wall-mounted air conditioners have the key advantage of improved air quality.
3. Coil and Condenser Cleaning
Spend some time inspecting and cleaning the exterior of your wall-mounted AC unit before winter arrives. When left unattended, dirt and debris buildup on the wall-mounted air conditioners outside the unit may cause the unit to malfunction.
4. Use Air Purifiers
5. Keep The Vents Open
6. Conduct Routine Inspections
7. Avoid Using Dense Fabric
Curtains and carpets are not recommended because dust particles become clogged in them. Carpets are made of dense fabric, making cleaning them a difficult task. Even when a carpet is cleaned, dust particles remain in the air for a long period. As a result, using dense fabric increases the likelihood of clogging the HVAC air ducts.
Don’t forget to maintain your wall-mounted AC unit before summer starts. You will thank yourself when you’re sitting comfortably and cool during the hot weather.
