An Air Conditioner is highly desired in midwest homes and for many, is a necessity. Having an AC Unit provides clean cool air to your home throughout the warm summer months. Something that a lot of homeowners don’t consider thought is the quality of the air that circulates their home in these warm months. AC Units can get very dirty and, if left uncleaned, will transmit this grimy air throughout your home.
Air Quality is one of the most overlooked aspects of Air Conditioners however, air quality is important for many reasons. Air conditioners have the responsibility to filter out dander, allergens, pollen, and other airborne particles that can be harmful to your health. When your air conditioner is dirty these particles pass right through, without being filtered, and get circulated throughout your home. If there are individuals in your home who have asthma or allergies, having high quality air should be a top priority and something you thrive to achieve in your home.
Efficiency and Life Span of AC Unit
With the seemingly constant increase in price of energy around the world another important factor for your air conditioner is efficiency. When air conditioners go long periods of time without being cleaned or serviced, air will start bypassing the filter and go directly into the evaporator coil which reduces the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. This leads to a great reduction in efficiency. According to The U.S. Department of Energy, cleaning your air conditioner can lower its energy consumption by 5% to 15%. By keeping your air conditioner clean and well maintained, your unit will last much longer and you will avoid paying the much larger cost of completely replacing your air conditioner in the future.
Reducing your Carbon Footprint
Cleaning your air conditioner is a very simple way to reduce your carbon footprint at a low cost. A dirty or clogged HVAC system leads to large displacement of carbon dioxide as well as other greenhouse gasses. By regularly cleaning your air conditioner you can do your part in reducing the carbon footprint we leave on this planet.
