Why clean the air conditioner

Generally, nothing extraordinary should ever get into the air conditioner. But during operation, millions of the smallest dust particles are collected on its filters, especially after AC was working all summer long or after long winter idle period. If it is not cleaned of all this dust, then in the next season at the first start-up, it "exhales" all the dust directly into the indoor air. And after a week or two, air conditioner may start to screw up or just stops working at all.

In addition, you need to remember that the air conditioner after winter hibernation releases into the indoor air not just some kind of ordinary dust, but also a lot of bacteria, viruses, and infectious sticks along with it. They was in minuscule amounts when got there, but they had a lot of time to multiply there while the system wasn't working. Released pathogenic microbes then also multiply and can cause illness of people who are in the room or house where the "culprit" of the spread of infections works. Bad indoor air quality can sometimes even cause employees of offices or organizations to complain of headaches, fever, severe weakness. The history of the air conditioners use even recorded cases when large companies and organizations stopped working because of issues caused by such uncleaned HVAC equipment.
