An Aircon causes a cooling effect by simultaneously removing heat and moisture and thereby lower the temperature to create a pleasant environment. The warm, moist air circulating in the room is forced out in the external piping system through the filter unit in the cooling system. PVC pipes can be installed within the walls or mounted on the roof and directed out of the home for the water from the moisture to drip out and maintain the temperature of the room well kept.
It’s the last thing you want to hear when it’s 30-plus degrees Celsius outside and you’ve run out of ice cubes for your drinks. There’s some sort of weird sound coming from your air conditioner that you’ve never heard before.
There are several reasons your air conditioner is making noise. It all depends on the noise. Is it a banging sound? There may be a loose or broken part. Is it buzzing? There may be some debris that needs to be cleaned out.
If you hear any unusual sounds coming from your air conditioner, have a professional diagnose the problem and make the repairs.
Your air conditioner is yours to use as much as you want or are able to. If you are worried about using too much energy and hiking up your electricity bill, there are some ways to control how much you use your AC. For example, use your programmable thermostat so that your air conditioner isn’t running when no one is home.

Your air conditioner has a lot of working parts that should be checked by a professional, but there are some things you can clean yourself, including:
The condenser unit
The air filter
Before cleaning, make sure both your outside and inside units are turned off.
To clean your condenser unit, first ensure the power is off so you don’t get a shock. Remove the covering and use a fine brush to gently remove dirt and debris. Be careful - they’re very fragile! Use a mixture of water and mild detergent to carefully remove buildup from the coils.
Replace your furnace’s air filter regularly to remove pet hair and dust. It’s the “air handler” on your furnace that moves the cool air around your home.
