Is sanyo aircon good?

Like many other brands, Sanyo’s air conditioning units have powerful cooling capacity, several wind modes, and other outstanding features. The brand is known for its cheap price and competent lineup of air conditioners.

What is the difference between inverter and non-inverter aircon?

The main differences between the two systems are the type of compressor motor used in the system. An Inverter aircon has a controllable compressor unit, where the compressor of the air-conditioning works as a heating or cooling control unit to adjust and regulate its output. Meanwhile, non-inverter aircon have no controllable compressor unit. Thus, it runs at its full capacity, and stop once the desired room temperature has been achieved.

What are the pros of sanyo aircon?

Sanyo air conditioners are priced at several different price segments such that you can quickly choose the most affordable one that you need. The brand also provides outstanding antibacterial technology, and their aircon units are microprocessor controlled. The intelligent microprocessor can recognise specific conditions of the environment, and adjusts the temperature and humidity accordingly.

What are the cons of sanyo aircon?

However, sanyo air conditioners might be known to be noisy, and it has poorer dust and filter system as compared to other brands.

Can you still buy sanyo aircon spare parts?

How do you clean a sanyo aircon?

1. Turn off the air conditioner

Before opening the air conditioner, it is important to make sure it is turned off. Check the instructions to see how exactly you can remove your specific filters and open the front panel of the air conditioner.

2. Check the status of the filters

Use protective gloves when cleaning the filters. When you remove the filters, check their condition. If you notice that the netting has holes, it means that you have to replace them with new ones.

3. Clean the surface with a vacuum cleaner

One of the most important things about maintaining the good condition of the filters is regular vacuuming and dust cleaning. Use a vacuum cleaner without a brush, because it can damage the netting. Clean the filter well from top to bottom in its length. If you have pets, you may need to do this several times to make sure you have cleaned the net of all the hair. When using the vacuum cleaner, do not press too hard, as you can tear the filter.

4. Soak the filter in water

Once you have finished vacuuming and made sure that the netting is well cleaned of dust, you can proceed with washing the filter. To do this, fill the tub with water or a container large enough, and the water must be at room temperature. Pour a simple liquid detergent in the water and place the filter in the bath or container, making sure you have fully submerged it. Move the filter several times back and forth in the soap solution and allow it to soak for 10-15 minutes.

To remove dirt, do not use brushes or other rough tools to avoid damaging the filter. We recommend that you use a hose, as it will allow you to clean all waste and dirt well. Continue to clean the filter with a hose until the water flows clean on the other side.

5. Spray the filter with a homemade solution

To destroy bacteria, you can prepare a mixture that is effective enough at home. Make a solution by adding vinegar and water in a spray bottle in a one-to-one ratio. Spray the filter with the solution and allow it to disinfect well for about ten minutes. Then rinse the filter under running water.

6. Dry the filter well

It is important to dry the air filter outside to make sure that any moisture has been removed. You can put newspapers on the ground under the filter and lean it against the wall. After about three hours, the filter should be completely dry and then you can install it again in your air conditioner.

What is the best way to maintain sanyo aircon?

Regularly maintained and well-cleaned air conditioning is an effective air conditioner, but more often than not, you might not have the time or energy to engage in such a tedious procedure. If you do not wish to spend hours reading and testing various tips, you can trust the professional services  to help you settle this chore. Here at Silverback Aircon, we have a team of professional air conditioning technicians who can quickly and efficiently perform the prevention of your air conditioning system.

How often should I service my sanyo aircon?

It is known that Singapore is a rainy country, with perpertual humidity. Humidity combined with heat makes the aircon work harder than usual. In such conditions, it is recommended by professionals that your aircon is serviced every 3 to 4 months.

Is air conditioner servicing even important?

You may think that aircon servicing is expensive, and unnecessary since your air conditioners are still functioning normally. However, every unit works for hours at a time, and you are more likely than not unaware of how much dust actually accumulates on your air con components. Dust accumulation occurs on critical areas of filters, condenser coil, and evaporator coil. Avoiding air conditioning service means losing cooling capacity, cooling speed, and increased power consumption. As the saying goes, a stitch in time saves nine, if you do regularly service your air conditioners, you may save yourself much more hassle in the long term.

Service worker came on time. Good job done by the worker. Understand that there would be 2 workers, but only one came as the other one on mc. Although he did the job by himself, he was fast and good and able to complete the job within 3 hours. The worker had done a clean job and the whole place was not messy at all, he even helped to clean up the toilets and made my helper's life easier. My aircons now are clean and cold again.

Excellent service and professional with aircon. Was a bit hesitant initially whether to engage their services as can't really find much feedback or review about this company. Glad that we decided to engage them in replacing our aircon units. Their prices are super reasonable....
