Why air conditioner cleasing is needed
Remove molds or viruses
In addition to the cooling function, air conditioners are also an important part of indoor air circulation. Air conditioners that have not been cleaned for many years are prone to odors and accumulate bad bacteria and molds, which will affect family health in the long run.
A certain number of dust mites and other allergens accumulated in the dust inside the air-conditioner, long-term inhalation of these allergens can easily cause immune system reactions, cause physical discomfort, and reduce indoor air quality.
Enhance energy efficiency
The summer in Hong Kong is relatively long. If the operation of air-conditioning reduces the cooling effect due to the accumulation of dust, more energy and lower the operating temperature are required for the the air-conditioner to enhance cooling, which greatly increase the power consumption.
Boost air conditioner durability
The cooling performance of air conditioners is prone to long-term load operation due to accumulation of dust, which increases the operating pressure of the compressor and the internal parts of the air conditioner. The parts of the air conditioner are therefore prone to aging and greatly reduce its durability.

Therefore, we recommend having a deep cleansing at least once a year, in order to get rid of the toughest dirt within, as well as to extend the life of the air conditioner and save energy.
