Quick questions regarding cleaning your air conditioning filters

28 April 2020

Now that you have plenty of time on your hand and are stuck at home, what about doing a little bit of cleaning?

 By now you've probably been in isolation for a few weeks and boredom might have finally taken over your day.

You have already taken upon yourself to exercise at home, to even learn something online or finished that jiggsaw puzzle that was taunting you for so long. 

What about spending some time doing some extra cleaning at home? You might think you take care of your house pretty well. But let's get down to the nitty-gritty: when was the last time you cleaned your air conditioning filters? If the answer is never, or wait, I have to clean these? We can help.

While you could hire professional for an air conditioning service in Perth, there is a fair amount of cleaning you can do by yourself. 

When it is time to clean? when should I replace the filters? 

First, you need to know this: you are meant to clean your air conditioner filter every 3 to 4 months.

Secondly, if you can't see any light coming through the filters, or if you can see holes or wrinkles, replace your filters as they aren't doing anything for you at this very moment. 

What happens if I don't clean them? 

If your filters aren't cleaned properly, the quality of the air you breathe at home will be compromised. Icicles can form as well as mould might form in your unit leading to reduced enmergy efficiency and air flow. 

How do I clean my filters? 

The way you clean your air conditioner filters will depend on the type of system you have at home.
