Tips to prevent AC damages
Clean your outdoor unit
The outdoor area outside your valuable Air Conditioner should be cleaned and checked once in a while. We must leave an adequate amount of free room for it. We advise you to cut or trim off any trees, shrubs, or any other kind of obstacles that would prevent the efficient working of AC.
Make sure to make free space up to a few feet outside the unit. Otherwise, the leaves, dirt, dust, and other debris get collected which in turn affects its smooth airflow and efficiency.
The clogged air conditioner cannot work properly. A similar problem persists in dirty air filters and clogged ones, both won’t produce an adequate cooling effect. Debris also will get collected on air-conditioner coils which creates an insulating impact. This will prevent the removal of heat from the home to outdoor units.
During autumn, maintain a close eye on them because there is a high chance of getting leaves stuck on them. We also recommend you get a quick inspection of the outdoor unit after a powerful storm. Be careful of the ice on the outdoor unit after the snow melts because it can also create a huge mess. You can contact us for AC maintenance Dubai.

This is a simple and fast step but people seem to ignore it. The unit gets overheated if it’s not done and leads to a situation where we spend more money than expected. In some cases, you can repair it but on the other hand, the entire thing is asked to replace.
Check filter regularly
If you want to prevent AC damage then don’t be lazy to keep an eye on the AC filter monthly. Regular checkups keep us up with good air quality and energy efficiency. People detect airflow problems from freezing coils due to clogged air filters. So we urge you to replace the air filters.
