Now that the Australian Winter is over, that means it’s time for Spring cleaning the house– but don’t forget about your air conditioning unit! We know that’s the last thing on your mind, but AC maintenance is important. Trust us, you don’t want something to go wrong on a gruelling hot day, and the air-con goes out when you need it most.
In this article, we’re going to delve into why air conditioning maintenance is important during the Spring and all the wonderful benefits that come along with getting your entire system cleaned.
Why You Need to Spring Clean Your Air Conditioner Too
Whether you have a split system AC or ducted AC system, you rely on it to keep you and your family nice, cool, and comfortable during the warmer months. However, if you want your air con to work effectively and efficiently, you need to get the filter cleaned regularly.
A dirty filter not only obstructs the airflow, but it also can be a Petri dish for bacteria or mould growth. Plus, it also collects dust, allergens, and debris that are blown throughout your home.
And it’s not only the filter you need to worry about, these pollutants and contaminants also collect in the ductwork and vents. If you want clean, fresh air then you need to call on a professional to come get the job done. And the best part is it only takes a day!
What Are the Benefits of Getting Your Air Conditioning System Professionally Cleaned During Spring?
Here are the key benefits of good AC Spring cleaning:
Improved Air Quality
The biggest benefit is that you’ll have cleaner air to breathe in. Poor air quality can lead to a host of negative health impacts such as allergy flare-ups and respiratory issues. It can also lead to problems like dry skin. You’ll also notice it’s easier to keep the house clean since there isn’t dirt and dust constantly being blown throughout your home.
You’ll Save Money on Monthly Energy Bills
A not-so-obvious benefit is that the entire air con system will work more efficiently. When filters and ducts are dirty, it makes the unit do more work for the same output. However, when they’re clean, the air flows more smoothly and the unit will need to run less– which means you’ll be saving energy and money.
Your AC Will Last Longer
Also, you’ll extend the life of your AC unit through regular maintenance and cleanings. As mentioned, the unit doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you cool, so it’ll add an extra year or two to the full lifespan of the system.
