Popular Services for Akira Units

General Servicing

General servicing is the most basic yet essential type of air conditioning maintenance, often saving you money and effort when done regularly. The process includes dismantling and cleaning the front panel, cover, and air filter to improve air quality. This service also cleans the vacuum evaporator coil for efficient airflow, vacuum blower parts to remove dirt and mold, and clear the drainage pipe of rust and bacteria. The water tray is also washed and vacuumed.

Chemical Wash

A chemical wash is a more thorough version of general servicing, ideal for air conditioners not serviced in over 6-9 months. It uses a chemical solution to clean the air filters, fan, and cooling coil. The blower is also dismantled and cleaned. For frequent aircon users, an annual chemical wash is recommended to remove accumulated dirt.

Chemical Overhaul

A chemical overhaul is even more intensive than a chemical wash. During this service, the entire unit is dismantled, and components like drainage pipes, heat exchange coils, and blower wheels are thoroughly cleaned. This service is ideal for those who haven't had servicing in over 9 months and are experiencing issues like leaking or strange noises.

Servicing Process for Akira

1. Open the Cover

Before opening the unit in a portable Akira aircon, certain procedure should be followed. A condensate is formed during the cooling process that is collected in a tank located at the lower portion of the unit, this should be periodically emptied. Turn the portable AC in fan mode for two hours to remove moisture. After it has dried up, the front panel can now be removed by unscrewing the back portion of the portable AC unit exposing the air filter.

2. Remove and Wash the Air Filter

The air filter can be easily removed by grasping the edges of the filter with both hands and detaching it from its position. Be very careful when handling the filters as some of the Akira models have a very delicate material.

Now, remove loose dirt that is visible on the filter. Gently tap the filter with your hands. Some models have a HEPA filter, this can be removed with the large air filter and is replaced every after few months of usage. For heavily clogged filters, this can be cleaned by rinsing it with running water or immersing it in a slightly warm water and a mild detergent. After it has been thoroughly washed, dry the filter in a cool shady place.

3. Replace the Air Filter

Re-attach the HEPA filter first before the large filter. Then position the large filter into the brails inside the unit. Make sure that both filters are placed according to their order as this would cause damage to the AC. Flip the back panel back into the unit then screw all edges back to securely close the unit.
