The arrival of summer is synonymous with great heat. It’s almost time to turn our air conditioning back on. However, cleaning is necessary before operating our devices. Find out why it’s important and how to do it.

Why clean the air conditioning system?

After a long period of rest, an air conditioning system must be cleaned before putting it back into operation. Here are the main reasons:

  • Possible accumulation of dust and debris at the filters
  • Pollution of indoor air and diffusion of allergenic substances in the event of a clogged filter
  • Proliferation of mold favored after a long period of inactivity.

Either way, a clean system works more efficiently. It consumes less energy. Furthermore, cooling or heating is optimal.

What are the essential elements to clean on an air conditioning system?

The various key components of the air conditioning system must be cleaned:

  • Air filters: they capture particles present in the air. Reusable models must be washed diligently. Disposable versions must be replaced regularly
  • Evaporator coils: They absorb heat from the indoor air. Those of the condenser dissipate this heat outside. They thus maintain good thermal conductivity
  • Fans: They circulate air through the system. Dust must be removed from the blades. Also check for possible obstructions
  • Air ducts: They carry conditioned air to different parts of the house. They can develop mold. You usually need to call a professional to clean them thoroughly
  • Grills and diffusers: they distribute the conditioned air in the rooms. These elements must be wiped regularly
