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

Is your home air conditioner ready for summer?

With the cold season drawing to a close and spring just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to get a head start on preparing your home for the oncoming warm weather. Last summer’s record-breaking temperatures sent demand for air conditioning repair through the roof, so it’s a smart move to take care of any maintenance your system might need before the mercury rises. 

If you haven’t used your home’s air conditioning since last summer, there are few items that you should add to your spring cleaning to-do list. 

Turn on your unit 

Check that cool air is coming from your system’s vents. It’s a good idea to do this before you actually need to use your air con. 

Replace Filters 

This ensures that flow of air from your system is not obstructed. It’s recommended that filters be replaced every 2-3 months. 

Clear external Debris 

Organic matter such as leaves can build up around the outdoor components of your system, which can impede performance and efficiency. 

Check the insulation 

Check the insulation on your unit’s coolant lines for wear and tear – cracking, peeling or fraying insulation needs to be professionally addressed. 

Book in a service 

It’s worth investing in an annual tune-up for your system. Even if it looks like everything’s in working order, regular professional servicing will maximise your unit’s performance and efficiency, extend its lifespan and minimise your chances of a breakdown over summer.
