Ducted Air Conditioner System Clean

Ducted Air Con System Clean

Ducted air conditioning is a worthwhile investment adding to the value and comfort of a home or office in a warm climate. While a split system or box unit can maintain the temperature of a smaller space within a home, a ducted air con system allows you to control the temperature of each room in an entire house. While neglecting a ducted air conditioning unit may not cause an immediate break down, it will increase running costs, reduce the positive air flow through the system, cause health problems for your family and even shorten the lifespan of the system by having to work too hard to suck the air through the return air filter if it is all blocked up.

As the ducted system is spread across the home it may not always be evident that the unit needs a service or a clean. While most dust and dirt build up comes from outdoor dust that has been tracked through the home; pet fur, skin cells, carpets, clothing and hair shedding can also add to the build-up of dirt in the ducted system. Filters can become clogged with dust and dirt which means your unit is working harder to blow cool or warm air into the room. This will result in increased power consumption costing you more when you receive your bill. In addition, uncleaned filters also mean that the air being blown out of the system is not as fresh as it could be which may result in illness particularly for individuals who suffer from hay fever, asthma or other flu like symptoms.

Ducted systems are quite often seen in office environments where the frequency of use is near constant all year round and the number of individuals running the same system in significantly higher than domestic use. Neglecting to clean a ducted air con system in an office environment could expose your staff to harmful airborne allergens that affect their health and in turn affect their productivity at work. Unwell staff members could be costing your business money when staff take sick days or are not able to complete their job to their full capacity due to discomfort when they breathe in the contaminated air that is circulated through their work space.

Often you will notice a dirt or mould build up around the air outlets and the support frame for the filter system will be full of dust and sometimes cobwebs.

Experience shows that ensuring a ducted air con system is cleaned at peak time throughout the year such as Summer and Winter, will ensure the unit runs as efficiently as possible.

5 signs that your Split System unit needs a clean:

You have a high-energy bill. Help reduce your power costs! A clean air con is much more efficient thus using less energy.

There is weak air flow coming from your unit. If you have turned your unit on and notice that it isn’t very powerful, this could mean your fan needs a clean. The less air being circulated through the room, means the longer it takes to cool the room down, therefore using a lot more energy.

The air coming from your unit has a bad smell. If you can smell a musty odour coming from your unit when you turn it on, this means your unit has a build-up of dirt, mould and bacteria which circulates through the room each and every time you turn on your unit.

Your health is being affected. Clean air can help anyone who suffers from asthma, allergies, hay fever and ongoing sinus problems.

Your unit isn’t running as efficiently. Keeping your filters regularly cleaned helps greatly with the efficiency of the unit and reduces the amount of dirt getting into the air conditioner. This can reduce your energy costs while also benefitting your health.

Did you know: Regular cleaning of your air con unit can increase its life span saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
