As we all self isolate and spend much more time indoors than we did before, it’s important to have clean, fresh air in our homes. The main way that we get this is through our air conditioning system – however, if you haven’t had your air conditioner inspected for maintenance lately, the air it’s producing might be doing more harm than good.
To avoid the adverse health effects that can come from unclean internal parts of your air conditioning system, start with having your air conditioner deep cleaned. A regular deep clean is key to ensuring the air conditioner is functioning properly, providing clean and sanitised air, and most importantly, keeping your home cool and comfortable.
Plus, not servicing or cleaning your air conditioner causes the filters to be blocked, which means that the system needs to run ‘harder’ to cool, which increases the amount of your electricity bills
How is a deep clean different to a regular clean?
Simply put, a deep clean is more thorough than a regular clean. Your system is taken apart systematically, and each section is individually cleaned using a pressure cleaner. This means that you can be sure all mould or other buildup has been removed so that there’s no contamination from parts such as the filters, evaporator coils and return air grills.
Then, as the system is put back together, each part is santitised using HVAC-specific products that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
This gives you complete reassurance that only clean air will be passing through the system and back into your home, especially during periods when the system is seeing more regular, everyday use.
We recommend getting your air conditioning system deep cleaned every year, with regular maintenance performed in between to ensure your air conditioner is always running at it’s best.
Can I do my own air conditioner deep clean?
Generally, no. You can clean the filters yourself, as this is a relatively easy part of the maintenance to keep up, but you should not take the system apart. That can only be done by a licensed professional who can get in and around the system. This guarantees a better job than doing it yourself, and also means that you can be certain your air conditioning system is working to the highest standard.
Not only that, you run the risk of waterlogging the electrical components, which will cause the unit to fail. This means you’ll end up paying considerably more out-of-pocket expenses to fix it.
When you consider your health, or the health of your family, it makes sense to leave the job to the professionals for the best results – and now is the best time, as it’s likely you’ll be running your air conditioner every day while everyone’s home.
Whether you’re cooling the house or warming it up, you don’t want to be confined with a system that’s blowing unclean air.
