It’s cool to keep split systems cleaned

Split systems can reduce the heat in your home quite effectively - and in a word that’s “cool”. But they can also cause health problems for your family and that’s definitely not so “cool”. Dirt and bacteria collecting inside the system can be a real health concern. Cleaning the air filters is good but not enough. A lot of people don’t realize how dirty the units are once the covers come off. The main culprits are the splits in the main bedroom and lounge area as they are used more often.

Higher power bills are caused by clogged coils and filters. Your airconditioner has to work much harder to cool your home. Removing the black mould and dust will improve efficiency of the system. A dirty split system could be causing hayfever, fatique, sore throat and sore, dry eyes. Cleaning and sanitising your airconditioner will leave it smelling fresh and operating more efficiently.

New split systems should be cleaned after the first 12 months to prevent dust and mould staining the parts and covers. We can give your split system a through clean. That’s a “cool” thing to do.



Are you buying, selling or renovating a home?

October and November is an ideal time to start preparing your home and garden for summer and your visitors over the christmas and new year holiday season. One very good idea is to have your airconditioner cleaned and checked before summer arrives with a vengeance.

Not only will the airconditioners operate more efficiently and save power consumption, you will also create a healthier environment in your home. If you are in the process of buying a home, it is advisable to ask the agent to note the airconditioners to be cleaned in the “condition clauses” in the contract of sale. Some building and house inspectors will note this in their report, but it is better if you get it mentioned and work carried out prior to settlement date.

On the other hand, if you are selling a home, it is a extra benefit to the presentation and sale of your home. Besides reflecting the pride you have in the property you are offering to potential buyers, you are presenting a healthy and clean environment. People always get the carpets and windows cleaned prior to sale. But what about the mould and dirt in the airconditioner? The ceiling fans get cleaned, even the bathroom. Yet the average split system or box type airconditioner gets forgotten. It can have accumulated dust and mould spores, algae in the drain pan which can trigger asthma and hayfever symptoms. A good clean will leave the airconditioner smelling fresh. Some new home owners are reluctant to turn the split system on if it has dust and mould visible on the covers and air vents. Some homes are 5 years old when purchased and the airconditioners have never been cleaned since initially installed.

If you are renovating your home, it is advisable to have the airconditioners cleaned afterwards. If sanding floors, the wood dust has most likely clogged up the air filters and cooling coil. Dirt and bacteria collecting inside the conditioners are a real threat. Mould, algae, dust and leaking water can all become health hazards for your family and interior furnishings.

So if you are buying, selling or renovating your home, it makes good sense to have your airconditioners cleaned.
