Drenched in sweat in the middle of summer? That’s okay because you know you can always count on your air conditioner to cool you down. But what if, after turning it on full blast, you still find yourself sticky and sweating? When beads of sweat are still forming on your forehead despite having your air conditioner turned on is when you know you need to have it cleaned.
You see, a dirty air conditioner can result in problems over the long term. It could damage your unit by causing it to work harder and it could also make you sick. Over time, dust and dirt in your home will build up inside your cooling unit but it’s not just dust that you need to concern yourself about, you also need to worry about mould. Mould is difficult to detect and it is easy to inhale and once inhaled can inflame and irritate your airways resulting in sinusitis, sneezing, couching, bronchitis, asthma attacks, and pneumonia. Furthermore, mould also triggers allergies like hives or rashes and in some cases can even lead to death.
We can’t stress it more strongly that cleaning your air conditioner is a must. Many are torn between a do-it-yourself air conditioning clean and hiring air conditioner cleaning experts. The number one concern if you plan to clean it yourself is safety. Is it safe to clean your own air conditioner? The answer is NO.
Here are two reasons why you shouldn’t clean your own air conditioner:
Firstly, you’ll run the risk of destroying your air conditioner. Your air conditioner is a complicated appliance. It comes with a maze of electrical wirings and tubes. Detach one wire and you’ll end up with a dysfunctional air conditioner. Air conditioners are made up of mechanical components that are specifically engineered to provide you with comfort so if you mess the system up because of sheer ignorance or carelessness, you’ll wind up destroying it. This is usually the case for those who haven’t had prior experience and training in cleaning air conditioners and who only rely on YouTube to guide them.
Secondly, you might electrocute yourself. Your air conditioner works because it has a plotted network of wirings underneath its exterior. When cleaning your air conditioner, you need to make sure that you don’t disrupt the wirings otherwise you might end up electrocuting yourself.
