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 your systems health 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.

Take shelter indoors from the extreme temperatures without a worry!

Tips on Cleaning Your Air Conditioner

Tips on How to Clean Your Air Conditioner!

Overtime dust, dirt, and debris build up in your reverse cycle air conditioning unit and as a result your costs for cooling/heating your home/office or electricity bill go through the roof.

This build up in the air conditioning system causes the air conditioner to be less efficient.  The air conditioner will have to work harder to achieve proper air flow so room occupants can enjoy cooler indoor temperatures.

If Dirty, your air conditioning uses more power which means a higher electricity bill.

High electricity bills are not the only problem you face with a dirty air conditioner.  All that build-up of bacteria, mould, pet dander, DNA, skin squames, dust mites etc, can have an ill effect on your health.  Your indoor air quality will be contaminated because the air conditioner recycles that dirty air back into the room which can make you more prone to illness, allergies and respiratory problems.

You need to minimise your energy costs and improve your indoor air quality by making sure that you clean your air conditioning system regularly.

Summer is only just around the corner and we are set for high temperatures this season.  Before you turn the system on check the filters are free from contamination.  This is very simple to do and as a result of cleaning just the filters you can improve your energy costs by up to 10%. It is best to clean your filter every 12 weeks or more regularly dependent on what is filtered through the air conditioner.  For example, a kitchen air conditioner should have the filters cleaned a lot more regularly than a bedroom air conditioner because of the cooking fats & oils that get filtered through the system.

Switch the system off, flip up the casing and remove the filters.  Using a vacuum clean and remove the contamination on the filter.

While you have the filters out have a look at the coils (behind the filter) if you can see a build up on the coils you will need to get a professional air conditioner clean.  A professional Sanitair HVAC hygienist can clean the air conditioners coils and improve your energy costs by up to 28% and offer a 12 month mould free guarantee.

Don’t forget to clear the debris from the exterior unit afterwards. According to experts, there should be around at least half a metre of clear space surrounding the exterior unit. If there is debris blocking this space, the air around the unit won’t be able to flow freely,

If time is important to you, engage in a professional HVAC Hygienist – Freecall 1800 130 168 for your local Sanitair HVAC Hygienist and get it done properly.

How a real banana turned into “The Big Banana”

In 1964 John Landi wanted something to make passing traffic stop at his road side banana stall. He had heard of a “Big Pineapple” in Hawaii and thought that something big would definitely stop traffic. With assistance of 1200 pounds and local engineer, Alan Chapman, who set about designing the giant banana by cutting the best looking banana he could find into 40 pieces and developing plans from which builders could work from, the Big Banana could become a reality.

Builder Alan Harvey started the construction in September 1964 with the work to be completed before Christmas. The biggest banana in the world was officially opened on December 22 that year.
