Your marine air conditioning unit is an irreplaceable and useful technology that provides your vessel with reliable cooling. But just like any other air conditioning unit, you need to keep up on regular maintenance of your marine AC to ensure the longevity of your unit.
While calling a marine air conditioning technician ensures that you’re getting professional repairs, there are a few things that you can do on your own to keep up on regular maintenance and prevent your unit from breaking down in the first place:
- Cleaning Air Filters - Cleaning your air filters prevents dust, dirt, and debris from circulating in your indoor air environment. It also increases the overall efficiency of your unit by removing build-up that constricts airflow. You can find your filter behind the return air grille (follow your manual’s instructions for tips on how to properly clean your air filters).
- Cleaning Sea Strainer - Your marine air conditioning system needs water to run properly, however, to ensure the proper amount of flow, you need to clean out your sea strainer at least once a month. A way to tell that your marine air conditioning is doing its job is to look at the water discharge--if there's a good amount of water coming out, then your marine air conditioning is functioning properly!
- Read Your Manual - Just like any other device or technology, you should keep your manual handy in the case of an emergency or situation OR to answer basic questions about your unit.
