The Benefits And Importance Of Ac Service

Although the purchase and use of air conditioners as air conditioners continues to increase over time. However, knowledge about the care and maintenance of air conditioners is still very limited, causing damage that could have been avoided long ago.
Even though it sounds trivial, cleaning the air conditioner can provide many benefits for the owner. It can even save expenses. Because a clean air conditioner will last longer and the electricity consumption will be lower.
One of them is maintenance by cleaning or servicing activities, this aims to prevent air conditioners from various damage and leaks.

Rare risks of AC servicing for health

Rarely servicing AC can also be bad for health because AC will be a gathering place for fungi and bacteria.
Even though the AC looks clean, it is not necessarily clean. AC can be a gathering place for mold and bacteria. Fungi and bacteria gather because the inside of the air conditioner is damp, causing mold and mildew to appear.
Fungi and bacteria will cause various kinds of diseases that are harmful to health such as sinusitis or skin diseases. That’s why you don’t have to wait for the AC to break down to do maintenance.
Periodic maintenance is also needed so that the air conditioner still has good performance and is free from bacteria.

Become a nest of bacteria 

Legionellosis is an acute bacterial infection of the lower respiratory tract caused by Legionella pneumophila. This disease is dangerous and can result in 15-20% death.
One of the diseases that can be found in air conditioners is legionellosis caused by Legionella sp. Legionnaires’ disease is a type of pneumonia caused by legionella bacteria.
Legionnaires’ disease does not spread from person to person. Instead, bacteria spread through fog, such as from air conditioning units to large buildings.
Adults over 50 years of age and people with weakened immune systems, chronic lung disease, or heavy tobacco use have the highest risk of developing the disease.
Symptoms Requiring a medical diagnosis Many people who are exposed to the bacteria have no symptoms. Those who do experience symptoms may experience coughing, fever, chills, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headaches and diarrhea.

Exacerbating Asthma

The filter is dirty if the air conditioner is not cleaned regularly. The air filter can be a gathering place for dust, pollen, bacteria, which will be re-circulated in the room.
This can increase the risk of respiratory tract infections, but it can actually cause problems for allergy and asthma patients.

The Risk of Rarely Servicing the Ac Unit

Noisy or Noisy

You know, when the AC filter is dirty, it will work harder to cool the room to reach the desired temperature. The gusts of wind are also unstable and make louder sounds and cause noisy wind noises.

Rust on AC 

Rust that appears on the air conditioner is not a small problem, without you knowing it, this can endanger your health. The inside of the air conditioner which is exposed to air condensation and freon causes rust to appear on the iron in the air conditioner.
If these particles are rusty, they will be blown away by air and your chances of sucking in these particles are very high. The danger is that you don’t know it, even though when you inhale these rusty particles into your lungs, serious health problems will appear in your nose, throat and lungs.
If air containing rust is inhaled by children, it will certainly be very dangerous, especially for toddlers who have low resistance.
To prevent this from happening, you should carry out regular maintenance, even if the air conditioner doesn’t have a serious problem.

Leaks in Ac

Air conditioners that are rarely serviced are definitely dirty, well, dirt on this Ac can cause leaks or water leaks. Why is that, because the dust and dirt that accumulates on the Ac will block the drain, be it on the Ac gutter, or on the Ac water hose.
As a result, the water generated from the indoor unit cannot flow and results in water leaks.
Apart from leaking water, rarely servicing can also cause freon leaks. We have explained this in the description above. Ac dirt will cause rust on Ac units, resulting in porous Ac and freon leaking.

Signs AC needs maintenance or service

1. Light wind

A dirty ac will cause the gusts of wind that are issued to feel slow. This is because the air filter and evaporator are covered in dust, as a result, the circulation of the air ducts is closed and the wind that is produced feels slow.
Apart from the fact that the filter and evaporator are covered in dust, the dirt that accumulates on the fan or indoor fan makes the fan rotate too slowly. This also causes the wind to slow down.

2. Appears Noisy Sound

The second sign is the noise from the air conditioning component. In general, the sound from the air conditioner is a kind of white noise or a subtle sound that your ears can still tolerate, and more often than not you can’t hear it.
Even though the air conditioner is still working normally, namely emitting cold wind as usual, the noise that appears can be a sign that you need to wash or service the air conditioner immediately.
If the sound is left too long, it can exacerbate the damage to the air conditioner. The existence of this noise is caused by the heavy workload of the AC. Noise or noise can appear on the indoor or outdoor unit.
On the indoor unit the sound comes from the fan or fan. A dirty fan will work harder, make the rotation unstable and cause the Ac body to vibrate and then produce noise.
Unstable fan rotation also creates loud wind noise and can interfere with hearing.
Noise can also come from the out door unit. The heavy compressor engine work makes the compressor engine sound louder when compared to normal AC engine conditions.

3. AC Automatically Turns Off

The automatic power off feature is applied to several types of air conditioners with the aim of protecting the ac machine so it doesn’t overheat. Over heat can cause the Ac compressor to be damaged. Apart from protecting the compressor engine, this feature also functions to protect other components from shorting out, due to the workload being too heavy.

4. Water leaks

Another sign that the air conditioner needs servicing and washing the air conditioner is a water leak. Actually this leak can be caused by two things, namely due to clogged drains, or leaks caused by frozen Ac (frozen).

As we have explained in the chapter on the risk of rarely servicing AC, this water leak is caused by clogged drains due to excess accumulation of dirt. This problem can be solved by washing the Ac.

Apart from being clogged in drains, water leaks can also be caused by frozen (frozen) air conditioning units. Excess water drips from a frozen unit cannot be collected by the water inlet. This causes the water to overflow and a leak occurs.

A frozen unit (frozen) indicates that the Ac Freon is lacking or there may also be a leak in the Ac unit and installation. Leaking freon in Ac requires further action by experts to prevent other damage that can increase expenses.

Benefits of ac service

1. Benefits for health

A clean air conditioner will certainly suppress it and can even prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. Thus producing clean and healthy air quality. Keeps you from the risk of diseases such as colds and coughs as a result of bacteria that multiply in the Ac Unit. When your health is maintained, your productivity will certainly increase.

2. Restore AC Performance

The longer it is used, the performance of the AC tends to decrease. One reason is the accumulation of dust and dirt on the filter section. However, when the AC is routinely cleaned, this performance will be maintained.

If previously the AC’s performance was no longer optimal, cleaning the filter section will restore its performance and make it work more optimally.

It is recommended to carry out regular AC cleaning services. Do AC steam every 3 months depending on the condition of your room. You don’t want to spend more money to replace damaged AC components, do you?

 It’s better to do a small service regularly every 3 times.

3. Save Costs

A dirty air conditioner will make the air conditioner work harder. By using this logic, it can be concluded that a clean air conditioner will make the air conditioner work more efficiently. So that the electricity released will not be too large.

With regular AC servicing, you can also minimize the energy needed so you can reduce your expenses as well.

4. Extend the life or life of   the Ac

Why can it be more durable, that’s because the AC is always at its best performance. A clean ac can work normally. Time to cool the room so much faster, so the machine can stop working. And work again when the room temperature has started to rise.

Can be used as a means to monitor ac components, so that if there is damage or a weak component it can be repaired and replaced immediately. This is so that the damage does not get worse and spread to other components.
