Can Your AirCon Handle the Heat?

Australians love to take advantage of the great outdoors.  Due to the extreme temperatures felt across Australia over the last few weeks, many families are just as content to enjoy their holidays at home, away from the outdoor heat.  Taking the time to relax and enjoy some quality moments with the kids before the school holiday break ends.

Emergency warnings have been issued, as an Australia wide heatwave pushes temperatures into the mid-40s across Australia.  Some of the temperatures have been unbearable:

  •  Marble Bar (Western Australia) has had 40 degrees days for over 24 days straight. They also have the long-held record of consistently being the hottest town in Australia!
  • Adelaide has experienced over 35 degrees.
  • Albury-Wodonga over 45 degrees
  • Canberra over 40 degrees
  • Several areas across western NSW are expecting temperatures above 45C beginning early in the week and continuing all the way through to the weekend.

 

When was the last time you had your air conditioner cleaned?

Air conditioners are working overtime during this heat and if not cleaned of airbourne contaminates, it could be costing you a lot more to keep you cool.   The indoor air conditioner coils and the internal components, over time, get a build up of airbourne particles that the air conditioner has filtered from the indoor air.

A dirty aircon puts more strain on airflow and efficiency, which increases the running cost of the system.  A professionally clean and sanitise of your air conditioner will avoid a higher than necessary electricity bill.  Keep cool during this summer heat! Consider doing something about it now and ensure that your aircon is running at its maximum efficiency.

Sanitair Premium Air Con Clean can restore the health of your system and improve indoor air quality.  Sanitair Premium HVAC Hygiene clean ensures that you and your loved ones are breathing healthy air, guaranteed for 12 months.

Are our senior citizens at high risk?

Extreme heat can affect anybody, our senior citizens are at high risk of developing a heat-related illness because of their inability to respond to summer heat… Check-in on elderly relatives and neighbours this weekend…

For the elderly who do not have air conditioning, make sure they are keeping hydrated – offer fluids water, fruit and vegetable juices which are best. (Avoid alcohol) In the heat of the day assist them to find refuge in a climate controlled environment such as shopping centres or clubs.

Unfortunately, from our experiences, many elderly who own air conditioners often do not use them when they should for several reasons.

These reasons include running costs, not operated in a lengthy period, too dirty to turn on, scared of electrical appliances. Encourage the elderly to use their air conditioners in extreme weather to make them more comfortable avoiding unnecessary health issues.

What you can do? You can clean their air conditioning filters and turn their systems on. If everything seems OK reassure them that everything is running correctly and is safe.

If you suspect any issues contact your local licensed air conditioning repairer and have their system checked over. If you feel their system is severely contaminated you could contact us and we can arrange for one of our friendly technicians to conduct a FREE Aircon health check.

If you are concerned about the welfare of any of our elderly citizens you should contact a medical professional or emergency services on 000
