Why it is important to clean your air con
Your air conditioner is designed to cool your indoor air, keeping it fresh and healthy. But when the unit gets dirty, its ability to perform this becomes greatly reduced.
To be specific, there are, at least, two major reasons why it is necessary to clean your cooling system regularly:
The indoor air contains more dust than the outdoor one. Moreover, a unit with dirt or mold build-ups blows particles of these build-ups in as well. Thus, you get even more dust on your lungs, which negatively affects your health.
Removing dust from the system and sanitizing it, you ruin this ground.
Efficiency at its best
Air con efficiency is its ability to provide comfort balanced with the cost to reach this target. In other words, this is about how well the unit performs and how much energy it consumes.
Evaporator and condenser coils with dirt build-ups are one of the main causes of poor performance. First, the dirt on the evaporator coil reduces its power to absorb the heat from the air. Second, dirt on the condenser coil decreases its power to transfer heat outside.
So, cleaning evaporator and condenser coils enables to maintain both indoor and outdoor unit performances at their best level even on the most scorching days.
There are two ways for a cooling system to achieve the required indoor temperature. First, work at its best performance and, thus, take a minimal time. Or, if failing to reach a good performance, work harder and longer and, thus, still get the temperature down.
As an uncleaned unit has lower performance, it has to work longer. That is to say, it consumes more energy to cool your room. As a result, you have higher energy bills to pay. Therefore, regular air con cleaning helps you avoid excessive energy consumption and, thus, save money on your energy bills.
