No-one wants to be bothered with fiddling around to clean the air conditioning unit. You just want it to be installed, and to keep you cool on hot days, right?
If it's not regularly cleaned, dust and microbes can start to collect which will impact on the performance. And the news gets worse. These microbes and dust collect under the lid, around the filter, and gradually become moist and mouldy. This means that harmful bacteria will be circulated around your home, and could affect your family's health.
You can prevent this happening by lifting the lid on your air conditioning and giving it a clean yourself. This should be done at least once a year and will help to keep the nasties at bay.
However, you should also have your air conditioning unit cleaned professionally once per year. This is in addition to the quick clean you do yourself. The benefits of getting your AC extensively cleaned are:
• Cleaner air as contaminants such as mould is removed
• Protect your family (or workers) health
• Increase the longevity of your air conditioning unit
• Keep it performing at its best
• Cheaper power bill due to optimal efficiency
