The first thing that you will need to consider to maintain a pristine air conditioner is to provide tender loving care to your air conditioner. Now, I do not mean that you should hug, kiss and sleep with your air conditioner unit but rather to sign up for an annual maintenance plan for your air conditioner. If you do opt for this service, you will have trained mechanic coming to your doorstep at regular intervals. Not only will you save your money because over the year service is cheaper in the long run. You will also save energy with well-maintained air conditioner and will also save you the hassle of remembering to call for service. Regular maintenance also increases the lifespan of your air conditioner, so overall opting for an around the year scheduled service is one of the best and easiest methods to maintaining a pristine air conditioner.
If you do not want to opt for over the year service, whether due to budget constraints or other reason, then you will need to adopt a few habits that will help you maintain a pristine air conditioner. So the first thing that you need to do (which you know for sure) is to shut off the power of your air conditioner when you are not using it. Do not just turn off the power, make sure that you unplug the main power cords as well. With how much traffic and dust that we have in the air, especially in metropolitan cities such as Bangalore, it becomes a necessity to clean your air conditioner filters. Usually, the air filters of air conditioners get clogged up with use and it affects the air conditioner functioning as well as reduce the cooling capacity of your air conditioner. Remove the air filter mesh and soak it in diluted liquid detergent. You can use an old toothbrush to brush the mesh and dry it in the sun.

Another part of the air conditioner that most people forget to clean is the coil fins. Most people use split system air conditioners, so you will have an indoor air conditioning unit and an outdoor condenser unit. While most do clean the indoor unit, often people forget about the outdoor condenser unit. You will be able to easily see the ridges over the condenser and evaporator coils. Make sure that you clean these two regularly as they are prone to dust collection and other.
Further, make sure that you unclog the rear drain at all times. Blocked drain pipe means that there is no way for the water to leave the air conditioner and this results in water dripping from your indoor air conditioning unit. This also means that you will have high humidity in your room as there is nowhere for the water to flow out. One last thing to do is to cover up your compressor unit when you are not using it. I do not mean that you have to cover it up every time you leave your house, but to cover it up during the winter or the raining season.
