Our daily lives now wouldn’t be complete without air conditioning. Given the hot and humid climate, air conditioners are the most popular option for people who live in hot and humid climates. However, frequent use of your air conditioner could seriously endanger your health. The interior of the unit gathers dust and pollen over time and serves as an excellent breeding ground for germs, mildew, and mold, particularly in the summer. Chemical aircon servicing is therefore frequently the most efficient way to address the issue. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of air conditioning chemical servicing.

The Benefits of Chemical Aircon Servicing

For private homes, routine cleaning and maintenance should typically be performed every three months for residential and monthly for commercial facilities. AC chemical cleaning is usually recommended for systems or units that have been in use for several years without proper maintenance. Some of the benefits of dry cleaning are obvious, including cleaner air, lower power consumption, longer unit life, better cooling performance, and less water condensation.

  • Cleans dirt

First and foremost, chemical cleaning breaks down harder particles and removes dirt. This is the main reason why this type of cleaning is essential for air conditioners that have not been properly maintained for years. This is the only way to get rid of accumulated dirt and debris, as other normal cleaning methods are usually useless.

  • Removes dangerous microbes

Mold is probably the greatest threat to human health when it comes to air conditioning equipment and systems. In general, they are fairly water and soap-resistant. However, some specific biocides eliminate them and prevent future regrowth.

  • Recommended for systems with very poor cooling performance

If your air conditioner is very poor, consider dry cleaning. Poor cooling performance is often a sign of a system jam and energy loss due to the higher power requirements of the system.

In such cases, the only way to clear the system blockage is to clean the system with chemicals that can break down dirt. Keep in mind that this is an important part of regular maintenance that ensures that the air conditioner is functioning properly and has few breakdowns. This allows you to cool the room much faster and more efficiently than before.

  • Reduce electricity bills and extend the life of air conditioners

Regular and proper maintenance will reduce your cost of ownership. For this reason, the main advantage of dry cleaning is low power consumption and therefore low billing. Of course, timely and regular cleaning of all parts ensures that the system works under optimal conditions for years to come.

  • Improves air quality

Reduced utility bills are a big plus, but more importantly health. Using clean air improves your overall quality of life without any illness or respiratory problems. Since the air conditioner is clean, the air you breathe is also clean.

 Disadvantages of maintenance of chemical air conditioner

Of course, maintenance of chemical air conditioning also has some drawbacks. First and foremost, the first disadvantage is related to the health hazards of dry cleaning. Some people are very sensitive and the biocides used for cleaning can attack the airways and cause side effects such as irritation, allergies, and shortness of breath.

Another major drawback is the price of the service. Compared to regular cleaning services, dry cleaning of air conditioners is quite expensive, mainly due to the cost of chemicals. In addition, professional methods and tools, as well as technical skills, are difficult to find and cost a lot. In addition, the entire process takes a lot of time. This includes both the actual cleaning and the period during which the system is shut down to aid in proper cleaning. In some cases, after actual cleaning, residents must leave their homes or office for a period to avoid exposure to certain chemicals.  What is included in the air conditioner dry cleaning package?

Thorough chemical cleaning of indoor and outdoor units and their parts.

Reinstall after cleaning.

Replenish the refrigerant.

Once you know what you are dealing with, you can easily decide whether to ask a technician to dry clean your equipment. In general, it all depends on how regularly you keep your air conditioner and how well it works each time. If you take care of your air conditioner, you don’t need to dry clean it. However, if you haven’t repaired your air conditioner recently, we strongly recommend that you repair it as soon as possible.

One thing to keep in mind is that all chemicals, especially those that remove dirt, oils, dirt, and scales, are harmful. The main chemical used for AC cleaning is sodium hydroxide. A qualified professional must perform the cleaning, as if the chemicals are not in the correct dilution, they can ultimately be more harmful than good. Make sure to rinse the device properly after the process. All you have to do is wash it with clean water to remove any remaining impurities and chemicals. Additional tips and warnings

Before you decide to hire a specialist for your air conditioner maintenance and dry cleaning, there are a few things you need to clarify first:

  1. You need to make sure that your device needs dry cleaning. Therefore, the technician must first provide evidence of the presence of microorganisms and bacteria in the air conditioner. You need to claim real-time evidence. If you are still unsure, you can consult an independent specialist for further testing.
  2. If you are certain that your system is infected with bacteria, you need to make sure that there is no other effective way to get rid of unwanted microbes and that dry cleaning is the only way to do it.
  3. Finally, you need to ask the technician about the specific chemicals to use. This includes names, caveats, side effects, and potential risks. In such cases, the customer must consider having to leave the site while the chemical is being applied. You also need to remove food and water from the room to avoid intemperance.
