Air conditioners (AC) are great if they are used correctly, but sometimes they can have a detrimental effect on our health because we do not give them the maintenance they need. If you have an AC in your home, you must ensure it is checked regularly.
So what do you need to do? Firstly, you need to ensure the air filters are changed regularly, as otherwise your AC will be pumping all over your room. This is because old filters cannot control all the allergens and pesticides entering your home from the outside. You can check the manufacturer’s instructions for how often you need to change your air filters on your specific model. It is generally recommended that you buy a new AC every 10 years.
As a general rule, you should not overuse your AC and you should turn it off when you are not using it or you’re not in the same room. This infographic from Half Price outlines everything you need to know about how to care for your AC so it is safe for everyone to enjoy. The AC isn’t the problem, it’s just that they need regular maintenance to keep them healthy! Find out more in the infographic below.
