In the hot Australian climate, air conditioning units are one of our most utilised appliances. In a hot Summer, some families and business have units running on a near constant cycle. It is important to regularly maintain the cleanliness of your air conditioning unit to ensure it does not harbour any harmful allergens and bacteria that could be making you and your family sick. Each time an air conditioning unit is used, the moisture and dust that naturally circulate through the unit begin to build up causing a blockage on the filters. This build up restricts the air flow through the filters meaning the unit utilises more power to cool down or heat up a room. If you have noticed an unexpected increase in your power bill, a dirty air conditioner may be the costly culprit.
In addition to costing you on your power bill, a dirty air conditioner could be making your family sick! The moisture that is found in your air conditioner is a breeding ground for harmful moulds and bacteria that is blown out into the air every time you switch on your unit. These airborne allergens affect the quality of air being breathed in by your whole family and can cause significant health concerns for individuals who suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever and people prone to flu like symptoms. The best way to keep your family safe from harmful airborne allergens is to call Purify Air Con Cleaning and regularly clean your unit.
