Why Get Your AC Filter Cleaning Done Before Summer?

While it might not yet be warm enough to spare much thought for summer’s inevitable heatwaves, now is the ideal time to consider how you’ll keep your cool when they hit. Getting your aircon cleaning sorted is the first step to making sure you and your loved ones stay healthy and comfortable over the hot season.

Why bother cleaning your aircon filter?

Simply put, a clean aircon filter is essential to the quality of the air that passes through your air conditioner. Cleaner filters can play an important role in reducing the allergic irritation and discomfort commonly associated with seasonal transitions.

Most of us know that allergies, asthma and other respiratory issues can all be triggered by changes in season. Fewer people are aware that this often comes down to their air conditioners, which can build up layers of allergens and pollutants over winter – think dust, dander, household cleaners, mould, bacteria and spores. When your system is turned on after winter, if inadequately maintained, it will transfer these agents directly into the air you breath in your home.

Cleaning your filter improves the performance and efficiency of your system, so you you’ll save on your power bill while creating a healthier living space.

Don’t have time?

As the festive season approaches, time and energy limitations are a common problem, but there’s no need to let that get the better of your family’s health. Having the time or knowing how to clean air conditioner filter debris from your system isn’t essential – your AC technician can do this for you as part of your routine inspection and maintenance.

Understanding how often to service air conditioning systems is key to making sure the air in your home stays as clean as possible. Two services per year is recommended to ensure your system is performing at its best. For best results, schedule one of these for before summer hits.
