Split System

Split Systems

Split System Air Conditioners are one of the most popular units used in domestic applications. These systems consist of a wall mounted indoor unit which supplies either cool or warm air into an area. The outside unit is designed to dissipate the the heat generated during the cooling cycle and cool during the heating cycle.

The new systems have advanced and now use refrigerants that are more enviromentally friendly. The refrigerants are used to cool or heat the coil in the indoor unit of which air is passed through via a filter.

If a Split System is not cleaned regularly it can become prone to dust and dirt build up. The filter systems are not designed to to extract all of these and if the filters are not cleaned additional dust and dirt can access other parts of the air con.

When an air conditioner has a build up of dust and dirt this now becomes the braeding ground for bacteria. As this bacteria continues to grow on parts of the unit like the coil, fan barrel and filters, this increases the harmul allergens produced by the bacteria. These allergens can be especially harmful to those individuals who suffer from asthma, hay fever, sinus problems, eczema and other health problems.

Apart from the health issues there is also the problem of the increase consumption of power due to the unit not performing efficiently.

Signs your Split Systems needs cleaning!

Do your electricity costs seem to be high when using the Air Conditioner unit. A clean and efficent running Air Con can reduce power consumption.

Has the air flow from the unit seem to have slowly decreased over time. This is a sure sign of blocked filters, dirt and mould build up on the coil area and also the fan barrel and surrounds.

Is there a continual drip from the unit especially when high humidity is around. This is a sure sign of a blocked or partially blocked drain!

Has there been an increase of illness to anyone who is in direct contact with the air produced by the Air Con? An increase in asthma, allergies, hay fever and ongoing sinus problems can be caused by a dirty unit.

Do you have an odour coming from the indoor Air Conditioning Unit? This would be cause by bacteria build up within the unit.

Does the Air Conditioner vibrate or amke any noises. An unbalanced fan barrel due to build up can make noises and shake the indoor unit.

Did you know that regular cleaning of your Air Conditioner Unit can increase the life span and reduce wear and tear issues!
