Why it is Important to Clean Your Room Air Conditioning Systems

Why it is Important to Clean Your Room Air Conditioning Systems

Fungi and moulds are an important part of the natural world, often forming complex relationships with other plants or animals.  Most are invisible to the human eye, under favourable conditions many can grow rapidly.

These growths contain spores – the next generation of fungi – that can become airborne and be inhaled.

Mould spores are present all year round, with highest levels in Spring and Autumn.  They like damp areas such as your air conditioning indoor coils. The presence of moulds in the air conditioner may cause health problems.  There are three ways in which mould makes people ill;

  1. When airborne mould spores are inhaled. Allergic reactions of varying strengths can be triggered
  2. Toxic poisoning may occur if various mycotoxins (including VOCs), produced by a mould, become absorbed through the skin, the lungs or the intestine
  3. Some fungi can infect various parts of the human body, particularly the lungs and the skin – targeting those with a weaker immune system.

The air conditioning system will heat or cool recirculated indoor air but it doesn’t introduce fresh air from outdoors or remove any pollutants.  The system should be cleaned and sanitised; a filter clean is not enough to remove the mould and bacteria from your system.

To reduce the mould and other fungi growth in your air conditioner, call a professional air conditioning cleaner to clean and sanitise the internal components of your system. Protect the health of your room occupants.

What Does Your Dirty Air Conditioner Cost You Per Year?

What is your Dirty Air Conditioner Cost You Per YEAR!

The air conditioning system draws the air from inside the room and recirculates it back into the room. The air contains an array of contaminants such as dust, dirt, pet dander and bacteria; some of this accumulates on the indoor coils. The indoor coil’s job is to heat up and heat the air that passes through it, or cool down and cool the air that passes through the coils. When the coils are clogged up by dirt and contamination the air struggles to pass through and the air conditioner has to work harder to push the air through the clogged up coils.

By cleaning and removing this contamination build up, you can substantially save on Running Costs and Reduce Energy Consumption by up to 28%


A 2400 watt (2.4 kW) Air Conditioner used for 8 hours—Total electricity used: 2.4 x 8 = 19.2 kWh

Tariff*= 27.10 per c/kWh x 19.2kWh = $5.20 per day

$5.20 x 365 days = $1,898 per year

A dirty air conditioner will be using up to 28% more energy eg: 27.10 cents + (27.10 cents x 28% =7.58 cents)= 34.68 c/kWh

Dirty Air Conditioner 34.68 c/kWh x 19.2 kWh = $6.65 per day

Dirty Air Conditioner $6.65 x 365 days = $ 2,427.25 per year

Clean Air Conditioner 27.10 c/kWh x 192 kWh = $5.20 per day

Clean Air Conditioner $5.20 x 365 days = $ 1,898 per year

Removing contaminants will not only Save you Money it will also extend the life of your Air Conditioning System.

Tips on Keeping Your Split System Air Conditioner in Excellent Condition

Tips on Keeping Your Spilt System Air Conditioner in Excellent Condition

Most people today want to save costs on repairs by knowing ways to keep their air conditioning system in good condition. Here are a few options that will help the split system air conditioner keep up during the times when you need it most.

Aircon efficiency can be greatly increased by removing contamination build up from the indoor coils and keeping the condensation drain clear.  This will allow for better airflow will increase efficiency dramatically.

Air Conditioner Tips

  • Tip 1 When mowing the lawn; remember to turn off your air con so that the lawn clippings do not get sucked into the outdoor coils of your condenser unit. It is also important to clear any vegetation around the equipment on a regular basis.
  • Tip 2 Check all air supply vent and ensure they are open and there is no mould in the air conditioner, which is not only bad for the equipment but can lead to serious illness in you and your family members.
  • Tip 3 Ants, bugs and vermin are attracted to electrical components, it is important to hire a pest control who can control the pests from spreading around the air con unit.
  • Tip 4 A regular maintenance agreement with a professional Aircon Cleaning Service Provider can help you save thousands of dollars on repair work on your air conditioning system. Hiring an air con cleaning service company will ensure that your split system air conditioner is working smoothly and efficiently throughout the year.
  • Tip 5 On humid days set the Fan speed on LOW.  The slower the air movement through the air conditioning equipment the more moisture will be removed from the indoor air, improving comfort in your home.
  • Tip 6 Try not to run your air conditioning system when you are renovating e.g. sanding wooden floorboards, sanding walls, removing kitchens or bathrooms, etc.  Any dust or air borne particles inside the home will recirculate through the air conditioner and will choke the system, making it harder to work.

Having an Energy Saving Aircon Service tune-up on your aircon will help you save on your air conditioning running costs, especially during the months they operate the most.
