10 Helpful tips to get the best out of your Air Conditioner

Tip 1:
In more humid climates the relative humidity can reach up 100%.  Your indoor humidity should not exceed 60% as anything over this amount is the perfect breeding ground for mould..

Tip 2:
HydroKleen recommends your Air Conditioner be switched on to ‘Dry mode’ (the water droplet icon). Some models automatically reduce the fan speed to low or the fan icon will not be visible on the remote.  The reason for this is it slows down the airflow through the refrigerated coil so air makes contact and starts the process of condensing (this is removing the moisture out of the indoor space) and keeping the humidity inside under 60% . HydroKleen recommends keeping your AC on dry mode for roughly 4 hours a day.

Tip 3:
A ductless split system Air Conditioner does not bring fresh air in from outside it recycles the air inside the room up to 16 times per hour.

Tip 4:
The filters in your Air Conditioner are your first and only line of defence keeping foreign matter such as DNA out of the Air Conditioner.  This is the cause of Air Conditioners getting blocked and losing their optimal efficiency, and is the contributing factor for Bacteria and Mould to start growing in the air conditioner unit.

Cleaning your filters on a monthly basis will make your Air Conditioner healthier and reduce the power consumption. When removing the filters wash in warm soapy water and allow to dry.

Tip 5:
For every degree the Air Conditioner is lowered, the unit is using 8% more power.    If you have to turn your Air Conditioner below your desired temperature, either the filter, coil, barrel fan or drain is blocked and you need to get your Air Conditioner HydroKleened.

Tip 6:
An Air Conditioner is like a vehicle.  If it is not properly maintained, mechanical parts will fail.  If the Air Conditioner is blocked, it means the components are working harder,  this inturn leads to replacement, and on average the cost to replace an air-conditioner is around $2,000.

Tip 7:
The reason for HydroKleening your Air Conditioners is to create a cleaner surface area on the aluminium coil so that the air passing through the coil comes in to contact with 100% of the surface area allowing the unit to run at its optimal performance.

Tip 8:
Burning incense and candles while the AC is running,  leads to the aluminium coil becoming clotted with the burning by-product, which may make you lower the temperature of the unit and increase your power cost.

Tip 9:
The Ergon calculator is a great site that can help you show what your power consumption is at different temperatures and runtimes.

Tip 10:
The World Health Organisation has announced that vapers from a sneeze or a cough can stay suspended in the air up the four hours. An Air Conditioner is the perfect environment for pathogens to grow as it is moist and dark, and with the human body sheading its skin every 3 days, this all contributes in supplying the protein for harmful Bacteria to grow and flourish.

The Number 1 Tip to Extend the Lifespan of Your Air-Conditioner

Air Conditioner cleaning is a task often neglected and forgotten by most households. It is an essential maintenance procedure to keep your units in optimal condition. If you skip on having your Air Con professionally maintained, it will result in a serious issue that will require repair or replacement in the long run.

Air conditioning units are the same as any other type of equipment as they can easily experience wear-and-tear. This is why regular maintenance is important to ensure that the units are functioning at their peak performance. By working with a well-respected and trusted professional Air Conditioner cleaning company, you will ensure that your units are well-maintained and increase the longevity of your Air Conditioner.

There are Air Conditioners that are designed to have a long-life span. Unfortunately, it seems that many do not last as long as they should.  Even if a manufacturer offers a warranty for a certain period, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the lifespan of the unit will last the same.

How Do you Extend the Lifespan of Your Air Conditioning Unit?

The best way to prolong your AC unit’s lifespan is by keeping it clean and maintained. Make sure that it is free of debris from both inside and out. While air conditioning units are designed to handle long hours of use and are pretty tough, skipping out on frequent maintenance will only surely shorten its lifespan. The average lifespan of air-conditioning units may last from 10 to 12 years. However, lifespans can be prolonged with proper care and maintenance. Just as you want every piece of equipment or even your car to be well-maintained, you also want your Air Conditioner to be always at its top running order when you need it the most.

Air Conditioning systems are similar to many things in your home or establishment that require maintenance – keeping a regular schedule of maintenance ensures it will always run effectively and efficiently.   Purchasing expensive Air Conditioning systems does not rule out the need to have the unit regularly cleaned.

Personally cleaning of your filters every three months will only go so far as there are additional components inside the Air Conditioner that requires cleaning.  HydroKleen’s Certified and Trained Specialist Technicians will help ensure that your units are well-maintained, reaching every nook and cranny, using cleaning equipment that has been specifically designed to clean Air Conditioners.  This will not only make sure that your AC is running at optimal condition all the time but it will also extend the lifespan of the units in the long run.

All HydroKleen Technicians use equipment specifically designed to clean Air Conditioners and are trained and certified by the Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association (ACWWA).  They will clean your AC unit back to ‘As New’ hygienic condition under the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines for Ductless Split Systems.  A Verification Seal will be affixed to your unit to confirm the clean has been completed to ACWWA’s Guidelines.

Make A Wise and Great Choice for Your Loved Ones Health

Have you shown your appreciation for your loved one this Valentine’s day? Valentines is a day of love and appreciation. It reminds us that we are gifted with love and we have the ability to give love. What gift have you given your loved one? You may have showered them with many gifts but the question is, have you ensured that their indoor air quality is well taken care of? That may sound like a “goofy and funny” joke but forgetting your air conditioner’s cleaning and maintenance can have problematic effects on you and your loved one’s health.

There are many romance movies dedicated to Valentines’. A lot of it involves a love triangle where one person has to choose between options. He or she needs to determine which one would be the best for him or her as a lifelong partner.

Choosing between options is not only applicable in love. It is also applicable with your choices on how you maintain your air conditioner. You may be torn between doing it yourself or having a professional come and clean it for you. You must understand how one option is a better choice in the long-term than the other one.

Cleaning your air conditioner might sound as a difficult and unnecessary task for you. You may think that as long as your unit keeps your home cool, that means it is functioning correctly. That perception is wrong on many levels as sooner or later, you and your family will be seeing the effects of not maintaining your air conditioner.

Frequent maintenance of your air conditioner allows it to perform at its most efficient. A clean Air Con will reduce the pressure and stress that any dust build-up will put on your air conditioner. When your air filters are clogged, the flow of air will be hampered which makes your unit work more than it should handle. Not only will your indoor air quality is compromised, but your electric bill will also increase.

Hiring a Professional

Now that you are aware of the importance of a clean air conditioner, the question would now rely on whether you should do it yourself or have it professionally cleaned. Personally cleaning your unit’s filters is a good idea but relying on DIY cleaning is not beneficial for your Air Conditioner.

Below are the benefits you can get from HydroKleen’s professional cleaning service:

  • Certified & Trained Professionals

Is Your Indoor Air Quality Poor?

Indoor air pollution can lead to many health problems. Respiratory problems are the most common and mostly seen in young children and elderly people. If exposure to indoor air pollution is high, it may lead to some chronic ailments like asthma, bronchitis, and even heart disease.

People already inflicted with chronic diseases may be poorly affected by pollution. To alleviate problems caused by poor indoor air quality, we need to improve the indoor air quality within our homes as this can significantly reduce the frequency of colds, flu, asthma and allergies. This will improve our overall health and lead to a better living environment.

Air Pollutants in Your Home

The components in your AC system are comprised of electrical, mechanical, and electronic systems. These all work together in harmony to cool your home effectively, but if the system is dirty and poorly maintained, the AC system will circulate poor air quality. This could be primarily dust that could exacerbate breathing problems and trigger the onset of allergic reactions and other respiratory problems. There are areas within your Air Conditioner that are a perfect breeding ground for mould to grow. Breathing in mould has been linked to several health conditions.

Fixing the Problem

The best way to achieve fresher, cleaner, hygienic air is to clean and sanitise your air conditioner by a trained and certified professional who will remove harmful microbial pollutants like, dust, dust mites, grime, and mould spores.

It is vital to keep your home clean to ensure that dust and dirt don’t build up. This will prevent the dust from being sucked into the AC system, delivering the dust throughout the home. The ducts and vents should be kept clean to remove any surface dust and mould that may have grown there. This will prevent the mould spores from being circulated into your home.

Finally, it’s a good idea to get your AC system cleaned and maintained at the beginning of every heating and cooling season. This will ensure that your air conditioner is clean and ready to use. You can DIY your air filters, but when it comes to the unit’s internal components, such as the Coil, Barrel Fan, and Drain, they must be cleaned by a trained and certified professional.

Make Your New Year Filled Fresh Air and An Efficient Air-Conditioner

A new year is upon us! You have likely made promises to yourself. You may have written your New Year’s resolutions. Since we are two weeks into the New Year, how many of those resolutions have you started? Most often than not, people add their health priorities as one of their New Year’s resolutions. You may want to accomplish a personal goal, change an undesired trait, or improve your life. However, have you added starting the year and continuing the rest of 2021 with “fresh air”?

Your attention may have been piqued on how fresh air can be a part of your New Year’s resolution. Looking at your 2021 New Year’s resolution, what changes are you planning about your health? You may have listed down things to change on your diet, eat more healthy foods, and exercise more often but you may have forgotten another important factor in your health: clean air.

When your air-conditioner is dirty it holds debris and pollutants that can circulate in your home. If you breathe in polluted air, the pollutants enter your lungs which can get into your bloodstream. This may lead to cause mild to severe health problems. It can even trigger asthma attacks which impacts on your quality of life.

The Importance of Regular Air Conditioner Cleaning  

As the hygiene consciousness continues, more people spend their time indoors. They are exposed to indoor air more often than they used to. This means that you are mostly using an air conditioner within your home.

Cleaning your air conditioner allows it to become more efficient as it reduces the pressure and stress that the dust build-up puts on your unit. When your air-con is clogged and dirty, the normal airflow is impeded which makes your unit work harder than it should.

Aside from increased efficiency, a clean air conditioner will ensure that the air circulating inside your home will stay clean and healthy. Having a dirty unit will only provide a breeding ground for bacteria and mould to thrive. If this is the case, whenever you turn on your air conditioner, these unhealthy particles are blown into your home which contaminates the air. This exposes you and your family to possible asthma, allergy, and even respiratory problems.

It is important to start your year right with your New Year’s resolutions and fresh air. Ensure healthy air quality in your home by having your air conditioner professionally cleaned.

All HydroKleen Technicians use fit for purpose cleaning equipment and are professionally trained and certified HVAC Wet Wash Specilaist Technicians.  They clean to an industry guideline (ACWWA).
