Many of us are guilty of neglecting our air conditioners. Sure, we use it every day as it has become a part of our daily lives but because we are so used to having it around, we rarely give it attention that’s because we know that we can always rely on our cooling and heating systems when the need arises. But do you know that neglecting your air conditioner can lead to serious consequences?
As homeowners, it is your responsibility to ensure that your air conditioners are regularly inspected and cleaned by professionals. No matter how busy you get, you must always set aside a time for this otherwise, you could be hurting your family’s health as well as your finances.
The following are three warning signs that your air conditioner needs expert cleaning.
When some parts of your air conditioner release good airflow while other parts don’t, it could only mean one thing – dirt has already accumulated inside. Your air conditioner harbours dust and dirt. If you don’t have it cleaned, it will create dust blockages inside your unit thereby compromising its ability to release good airflow. The only way to remove dirt is to have it cleaned by experts.
Air conditioners, when not regularly cleaned, become a suitable environment for mould and mildew to grow. There are instances where you can actually see mould growing on the outside of your air conditioners. When this happens, it’s a sign that you need to have your air conditioner cleaned immediately. Keep in mind that mould is toxic and once inhaled can cause you to get sick.
One of the signs that you need to have your cooling system cleaned is when you are coughing, sneezing, wheezing and experiencing fatigue all the time. It’s also possible that you’ll experience recurring asthma attacks and allergies. The reason? You are breathing in toxins that are housed inside a dirty air conditioner.
Don’t wait until you see these three warning signs; have your air conditioner cleaned regularly before it creates more problems for you.
