As summer approaches and you increase air conditioner use, without having your air conditioner cleaned you may find a range of health problems occur in your staff or your air conditioner simply not working correctly which will affect the unit and its ability to be cost effective. Problems that arise with dirty filters:-
♦ Allergens – which are caused by dirt and mould build up in the Air conditioner. A dirty air filter causes the duck work to become dirty, which is where the mould and bacteria grow. These allergens can cause symptoms such as fatigue, coughing, itchy eyes, headaches, sore throat, difficulty breathing, congestion and tightening of the chest. Having your air conditioner cleaned regularly will help to reduce these allergens.
♦ Air Flow – An air filter that is clogged reduces the amount of air that comes through the system, therefore reduces the amount of air flow into your office or home and the overall effectiveness of the unit.
♦ Air Ducts – if the filter on a central air conditioning system gets dirty, the dirt is then spread to the air ducts in the house. It is always best to have air filters cleaned.
Having your air conditioner regularly cleaned is a way to protect all against a range of health issues and to also ensure your air conditioner is performing to its best ability. If you haven’t had your Air Conditioner cleaned lately why not give us a call for a quick quote on (07) 3245 3933
