Why is it important to clean your air conditioner?
Ensuring the health of your family
Over time, air conditioners collect dust and harmful microorganisms that can lead to illness. By regularly cleaning your air conditioner, you can protect the health of your family and ensure optimal performance.
Dirt accumulation in the air filter
The air filter is an important part of the air conditioner that filters and removes bacteria and allergens from the air. Over time, the filter accumulates dust, affecting air quality and temperature.
Decreased cooling capacity
Dirty air conditioners can lose 1% of their cooling capacity for every week of operation, leading to reduced cooling efficiency and increased energy consumption.
Shortened lifespan of the air conditioner
Accumulated dirt can cause the air conditioner to overwork, leading to a shortened lifespan and potential damage to other parts of the system.
How often should you clean your air conditioner?
To prevent these issues, it is recommended to clean your air conditioner regularly based on the following guidelines:
- For households: Clean every 3-4 months if used frequently, or every 6 months if used occasionally.
- For companies, restaurants: Clean every 3 months on average, or every 2 months in dusty environments.
- For production facilities, industries: Clean every 1 month due to continuous operation.
Benefits of regular air conditioner cleaning
Regular cleaning improves cooling performance, provides clean and bacteria-free air, and reduces energy consumption and maintenance costs.
