2. Use a cloth to clean the coils

Coils that are dirty and covered in particles will not be able to cool your room efficiently. Hence, this will cause the AC unit to consume more power to work harder.

The coils are easy to spot as it is just behind the filter.

3. There is a strange smell all of a sudden

This is the most obvious when the drain pipe is left unattended. This is because the backflow of water from the clogged pipe causes more mold growth overtime, which is also bad for health.

4. It takes Longer to cool your room

Based on our personal experience, for a room of 600 square feet, it normally take 20-30mins to completely cool down the room.

So if you have a similar room size and it takes more than 40 minutes to cool down, get your air-cond checked.
