In order to keep your cooling system running in top shape, we recommend our customers regularly inspect their unit’s filters every 90 days, performing regular filter preventative maintenance is key to your cooling unit’s longevity. The filter’s location will vary depending on your type of cooling unit. The following information will give a simple overview of how to properly maintain your cooling unit’s filter:
Platinum / Mini Splits
- These units have a wall-mounted evaporator that has a detachable front grille. Beneath this grille is a filter. The filter can easily be cleaned with a vacuum, compressed air, or the use of soap and water and then replaced inside the evaporator unit.
- Clogged duct filters hamper the efficiency of a unit and shorten its lifespan. The filters can be located at the ductwork on the unit and require regular replacements. Replacement filters for Extreme tiR units are available on our website.
- These systems use filters that are located at the wall register inside of your cellar. Since wall register sizes may vary we do not provide replacement filters and therefore must be purchased separately. We recommend filters with a mean efficiency reporting value (MERV) of 4 or better.
By following these simple filter preventative maintenance tips, your cooling unit will continue to run at optimum capacity while protecting your investment in fine wine for years to come.
