Air conditioning and health: instructions for use!

The summer will be coming soon, with temperatures over 25 degrees in many regions of Italy. But before turning the air conditioners back on, it is good to clean the filters and fins to avoid the proliferation of unwelcome guests.

Unfortunately, the air in our apartments, offices and shops is far from clean: indoor there are dust, dust, pollen, bacteria, mites, etc. If we live in the city we will be more exposed to urban particulate matter; in the countryside, to pollen and spores; in the seaside, to sand and salt.

All these pollutants pass through the conditioner filters and, if they are not cleaned, the health risks are not negligible: they range from simple sore throats to the most fearful bacterial infections, such as legionella. Dirty filters also reduce the efficiency of the air conditioner, which ends up consuming more electricity and cooling less.

It is therefore a good practice to do at least a couple of cleaning of the machine during the summer, extending the hygienic cleaning to all components accessible from the outside: split fins, doors, external casing etc.

How to remove and wash the filters: the air conditioner is a simple machine and everyone can clean it in a few minutes and in total safety. Just remove the front mask of the air conditioner to access the filters (normally two): you will discover with pleasure, and perhaps a pinch of disgust, that they are well dusty ... and this is only what you see with the naked eye! 

You must be sure to clean and remove germs and bacteria and here Italchimes comes to your aid, who has developed an ad hoc formulation: AIR 690 ECO; just spray the product on the filters, leave for a few minutes and then rinse. As already mentioned, the cleaning should extend at least also to the finned batteries of the machine, visible behind the filters. By doing so you will obtain a complete removal of all deposits present on the surfaces and at the same time a safe and complete cleaning of the filters.
