Air conditioning is pretty much something we all take for granted. It does its own thing, keeping us cool on hot sticky days. But is there really any need to clean it? Sounds like a difficult and unnecessary task, right? Wrong! Cleaning your air conditioning unit on a regular basis provides plenty of health benefits for you and your family and saves you money. Ha, we thought that might grab your attention!
Ways That Dust Affects Your House and Your Health
- Improves the quality of indoor air – Air conditioners units don’t just keep your home cool they also keep the air that’s circulating healthy and clean. A dirty air conditioning unit provides the perfect environment for germs, bacteria, fungi and mould to thrive; so in essence, whenever your unit is turned on particles of contaminants get blown around the room possibly triggering allergies and respiratory problems in you and your family.
- Improved efficiency – Giving your air conditioner a regular clean helps improve its efficiency by reducing the pressure and stress caused by a build-up of dirt and debris. Dirty air filters become clogged up with dust making your machine have to work harder than it should in order to circulate the air. Moreover, when the evaporator coil gets covered with dust, it makes it harder for it to absorb heat and this, in turn, affects the efficient cooling of your home.
- Avoids expensive repair and replacement costs– Leaving your air conditioner unit to just ‘do its own thing’ simply allows the dirt and dust to build up further and will in time lead to bigger problems and the inevitable breakdown of your unit. As it gathers more dust, cleaning becomes more difficult and because the evaporator coils are unable to absorb the heat effectively, you’ll find that your unit frequently overheats. It can also mean a build-up of ice. All of these problems can be avoided by getting your unit cleaned regularly by a professional aircon cleaning company. Furthermore, regular cleaning of your aircon unit will throw up any potential problems meaning they can be addressed in their early stages, saving you future costs on expensive repairs or having to replace your unit. Yes, you’ll have to pay for a professional aircon cleaning service but this is a small price to pay compared to what you might have to pay for repairs or replacement.
- Lower electricity bills – For most households, a large part of their monthly electricity bill is can be attributed to their cooling system. Since a dirty aircon unit has to work harder to perform it uses up 5-10% more electricity. By cleaning your unit and thereby increasing its performance, you will benefit from lower electricity bills.
