The quality of the air you breathe and the environment at home where you cherish your days needs to be clean and healthy. Air pollution is not only outside; it is also present in your house and can affect your and your loved ones’ health. A dirty air conditioner is a big reason for pollution indoors.
If you look at the stats, the concentration of indoor pollutants is typically 2 to 5 times higher than outside pollutants, and in worst case scenarios, it can be more. Due to the neglect and irregular cleaning of your air conditioner, lots of health concerns linger over you and your beloved family members. Let’s take a look at what hidden enemies could be living in your dirty air conditioner.
1) Entrapped Pollutants
The pollutants from the outside environment are a significant problem for your indoor unit. They accumulate in the system when an AC takes warm air from its surroundings to cool it. The common reason for such a mechanism is poor ventilation and humidity in the air. The pollutants clog the filters, also affecting the cooling ability.
2) Dust Mites and Pet Hair
The teeny-tiny insects, like dust mites, love to hide in warm humid places and thrive among the dust, making an air conditioner an ideal place for them. To prevent such accumulation, it is necessary to clean the air conditioner regularly.
If you have a pet at home, its hair can make the filters clog and lead to chronic allergies and skin issues. Both causes are quite common and highly problematic as invisible and microscopic things don’t get noticed until they become a significant health issue.
3) Deadly Viruses and Bacteria
The spread of viruses and bacteria via the air conditioning system is fast and unstoppable. It can contaminate your entire house within minutes because cool air can carry the germs instantly through the ductwork. Getting a professional air conditioner service to clean, especially the ductwork, will keep you and your family safe from germs, viruses, and bacteria.
4) Mould and Mildew
The dark, moist area in the air conditioning system provides an ideal environment for mould and mildew to grow and mature. Mildew can cause allergic reactions in kids, elders, and asthma sufferers. If not dealt with in due time, they can release spores and dangerous toxins, causing a greater health threat.
4) Side effects of VOCs
Volatile Organic Compounds such as paints, cleaners, disinfectants, sprays etc., can easily make your ductwork dirty, affecting the air quality of the air conditioner adversely. This poor air quality can lead to several health issues such as suffocation, irritation, allergies, discomfort, and much more.
