A filthy AC filter can result in a dirty evaporator coil and blower fan since air circulates through the filters. If left unclean for a long period of time, dirt will build up in your air conditioning unit, which can freeze your evaporator coils and turn into grime or muck.
So imagine how this can be the perfect breeding ground for mold, fungi, bacteria, and germs. Then you turn your AC on…
Your AC unit plays an important role in keeping the air circulating inside your home or bedroom clean and healthy. You can start with cleaning your AC filter at least once a month. Follow these easy steps:
Step 1: Remove the front panel (or grille for window-type units) and slide out the filter.
Step 2: Use a soft cloth to wipe the dust off from the filter.
Step 3: Soak it in a basin of water for 5-10 mins. If you prefer, you can add a cleaning solution but choose the one that’s safe to use on plastic.
Step 4: Place the filter on top of a dry cloth and allow it to dry.
Step 5: Once the filter is dry, slide the filter back in. Then clean the front panel (or grille) with a soft dry cloth before attaching it to the AC.
To ensure that your AC unit runs as efficiently as it should, it is highly recommended to schedule a thorough cleaning of your Air Conditioning unit every six months. This includes removing the dirt caught up in the frozen evaporator coils and other parts of your AC unit.
Have a professional inspect your AC unit at least twice a year to detect potential problems. This way you can prevent expensive repairs, or worse, having to buy a new one. When you compute the cost of future repairs or a replacement, it is a far cheaper alternative. Think of it as your spring cleaning and yearly check-up.
