Appliance Maintenance (Part 5) Computer

As the regulated e-waste recylcer approved by the Environmental Protection Department of the HKSAR government, ALBA Integrated Waste Solutions (HK) Limited receives many discarded electrical appliances from citizens and organizations every day. Surprisingly, many of them are still in good condition and can be used. Some appliances even have minor problems that can be fixed by technicians due to improper use or maintenance. To help everyone easily extend the life of their appliances, save money, and reduce waste, we have prepared a series of “Appliance Maintenance” tips.

Computers have complex structures, and there can be many reasons why they break down. However, maintaining good heat dissipation and regularly cleaning the computer can definitely help reduce wear and tear. Here are three simple computer maintenance and usage tips to keep in mind:

– Avoid using the computer on surfaces that make it difficult to dissipate heat, such as on a bed or a blanket

– Regularly clean the accumulated dust to maintain good heat dissipation

– Shut down the computer directly at night when not in use, instead of putting it to “sleep/hibernate” mode
