Many people don’t realise that their air conditioner can actually assist in managing allergens by removing particles from the air inside the home. However, a poorly maintained air conditioner can actually contribute to allergic reactions by circulating airborne pollutants around the home.
Standard air conditioners do a good job of basic air filtering, removing dust, pollen and other particles from the air, as well as reducing humidity, making it easier to breathe. But there are a few simple steps you can take to improve your air conditioner’s air filtering performance.
So whether you or your family suffer from allergies or hay fever, we’ve got some tips to help you find relief. In this article, we look at how your air conditioner can contribute to cleaner air in your home, and help you manage allergies for your family.
Clean the filter regularly
Run the self-clean operation
Many modern air conditioners come with a built in self-cleaning function. In addition to regularly cleaning the filter as outlined above, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and run the self-clean function as often as directed.
Not only will this contribute to cleaner air, your air conditioner will be running more efficiently, using less energy, and will be less likely to need repairs in the future.
