Look after your lungs through your air con
Air you breathe greatly affects your lungs and your health. If it is dusty, up to 30% of this dust may settle on your lungs. And if it contains bacteria, you inhale these bacteria. And up to 10-15% of them may escape the traps you have in your nasal passages and get into your body. That is why air purifiers are so popular.
But do you know the way you care about your air conditioner is no less important for your lungs? And yes, just as you can count us for air conditioning repair in London, you can count on us for cleaning your air con to help your keep airborne dust and bacteria away from your lungs.
Dust and your air con
So, you already know that there are a lot of particles in the air. These can be particles of your skin and hair, of your pet hair, and even of your clothing. When an air con takes the airflow in, its filters capture most of the dust. Thus, when it returns the air, the latter is not only cool but also free from dust and allergens.
However, the dust doesn’t disappear but stays on the filters. In turn, this leads to at least two bad outcomes:
Bacteria and your air con
It is not rocket science to discover that bacteria simply adore a protein-rich and moist environment. And, despite all air conditioner advantages, we shall admit that it can provide such an environment. To clarify, here are the most common air con components where bacteria have all conditions to grow in number:
However, bacteria do even better if, in addition to a protein-rich environment, they get into a moist environment. And this is what the condensate drain provides. To clarify, this is also a place where dust accumulates. Moreover, as condensate is moist, the condensate drain is the place where moisture always exists. So, when it comes to bacteria replication, a dirty condensate drain presents even more danger for your lungs and your health.
The only way to prevent this is deep air con cleaning. Especially before the high season, which you have in summer. Contact us to arrange deep cleaning and regular maintenance for your air conditioning system.
