So, you have a Daikin air-con. But do you know how to clean it?

Although cool air may cascade reliably from your air-con day after day, you still need to know how to service your air-con on a regular basis. You would not want one of your much-needed energy efficient appliances to break down, after all.

Fortunately, cleaning one is not as hard as you might think. Here’s how to do it.


How to clean the filter

When to do this: Every two weeks

When the air-con is operating, dust and dirt will get trapped in the filter. If you want it to work efficiently, you will need to clean it on a regular basis.

Here’s how:
  • Open the front grill and take out the filter.
  • Mix some mild soap with lukewarm water and gently wash the filter with the solution. Rinse.
  • Let the filter dry completely, then re-install it.
  • Clean the front panel or front cover with a clean cloth.
  • Do not use cleaning agents other than mild soap.


How to clean the air-con unit exterior

When to do this: Whenever you feel the need to

One of the main reasons why a lot of people opt for a Daikin air-con is because of how great it looks in any room in our house. Naturally, you will always want to maintain that appearance and have it looking brand new.

To maintain your air-con’s appearance, just do the following:
  • Use water to clean it.
  • Wait for it to dry.


Engage the experts

By now, you would understand the importance of regular air-con maintenance, but you may not have the time or patience for it. The thought of busting out a ladder to reach the air-con so that you can clean it will be even more daunting if you have several of these energy efficient appliances installed at home.

Fortunately, even if you don’t have time to clean your air-con, you can engage a Daikin professional to do the work for you instead.
