We have collected a number of important rules that must be followed when operating an air conditioner:

  1. Use the air conditioner modes based on the outdoor temperature. Do not turn on the air conditioner at 28 degrees celsius, if the window is hot summer. It is also necessary to take into account the technical capabilities of the device. For example, if it is not designed to operate at sub-zero temperatures, do not turn on the air conditioner under such conditions;

  2. If your air conditioner is not equipped with a ventilation mode (not to be confused with ventilation!), then the room will have to be ventilated the old-fashioned way, opening the window. And you need to do this several times a day. During ventilation, the air conditioner must be turned off;

  3. Any air conditioner needs regular maintenance, at least before and after the summer season. We will tell you more about the service in the article;

  4. If your air conditioner is not equipped with a humidifier function, you will need an additional humidifier, since split systems dry the air;

  5. The power of the air conditioner should be selected based on the area of the room (1 kW = 1 sq. m.).

These are the main recommendations that need to be taken into account so that your air conditioner will last a long time and at the same time properly perform its function. Next, we will talk about how to turn on and configure the device, and tell you a little about its maintenance.

As a rule, the button is located on the right side of the device, but sometimes its presence is not so obvious and noticeable. You have to search the button on the case of conditioner. In some devices, the button can be pressed without any difficulties, and in some you have to look for a thin tool, since the button is recessed inside the case.

A little bit about the service

The answer to the question of how to properly use the air conditioner at home will be incomplete if we do not touch on the topic of maintenance. After all, the split system must not only be operated, but also carefully cared for.

Maintenance should be carried out at least twice a year if the machine is used only in the summer. If the air conditioner is operated in the cold season in the air heating mode, then maintenance should be carried out 3-4 times a year.

cleaning the air conditioner drainage system

Part of the work should be carried out by a professional. For example, it is better to entrust the inspection of electronics and other components to a master with experience. But cleaning and disinfection can be done with your own hands. However, this applies only to the wall unit of the air conditioner. The outdoor unit installed on the facade must be cleaned by the master. Especially if the unit is mounted at a high altitude.


Let’s go back to self-service. The easiest thing to do is to wipe the decorative panel of the air conditioner with a cloth with detergent. But that’s not enough. It is necessary to remove the decorative cover and clean the device from the inside, removing dust and dirt with special tools. Also, the inside of the device can be vacuumed using a nozzle with a narrow nozzle.

And in the air conditioner, you need to regularly replace the filters that purify the air from various impurities from the street. You will notice them as soon as you remove the decorative cover from the air conditioner housing. The largest filter, which has a plastic base, can be washed with detergent. But other filters can not be cleaned, they need to be completely replaced.


Now you know how to properly use the air conditioner at home, so that it will serve you for many years. Knowing and following these simple rules, you will be able to fully unlock the potential of the split system. This is especially true for expensive air conditioners equipped with a large number of functions.
