Split system air conditioners are a popular air conditioning unit that consists of a wall mounted indoor unit that blows cool or warm air into the room; and an outdoor unit designed to dispel the heat generated through the cooling process allowing you to adjust the room temperature accordingly. Refrigerants are used to cool or heat the air which is drawn through a filter to ensure air is clean, fresh and healthy.
When a split system unit is not regularly cleaned and serviced it becomes prone to dust build up and is a breeding ground for bacteria. As the bacteria continues to grow on the coils, fans and filters of the air conditioner, the contaminants begin to affect the overall air quality resulting in harmful allergens being circulated through the room. These allergens are especially harmful to individuals who suffer from asthma, hay fever, sinus problems, eczema and other health problems. A build-up of dirt and dust on the filter and in the coils will also cause an increase in power consumption which will result in an increase in your power bill.
