How Does AC Improve Air Quality?

If you’re a handyman working in the summer heat, there’s nothing better than having an air conditioner to cool off and make your work more comfortable. But did you know that AC also improves air quality? The answer is yes! Air conditioners remove airborne particles like dust, pollen, and pet dander from the air which can cause allergies and respiratory issues. Whether it’s for comfort or health reasons, we hope this blog post was helpful!


What Air Conditioners Do?

The primary function of air conditioners is to produce fresh, clean air and reduce heat in a room. They can remove different contaminants such as pollen and dust from indoor environments through their filters with the help of an efficient cleaning system that operates constantly throughout the day (or night). These impurities have been pulled inside your home’s appliance by its cooling unit but might be pushed back out once they’re sent down towards Earth again shortly afterward due to how quickly these particles flow past our planet’s surface layers on their way up here into outer space.


The filter does not last forever though so even though it may seem like everything we do at times has no lasting impact whatsoever; this truth couldn’t stay any more true than when speaking about the AC’s filters. It’s important to change your filter on a regular basis so it can operate at its best and clean the air around you, otherwise many contaminants will be released back into your home or office which would reduce AC efficiency by reducing how much must be removed in order for some of that original coolness to remain after use.


When you use your air conditioner to clean the air, make sure that you change filters at least every two weeks. Dirt will reduce its ability to scrub out harmful gases and particulates from the atmosphere as it decreases airflow through dirty filters. Contrary to popular belief though, this isn’t because dirt helps them work better–it’s just more difficult without any soil or other particles blocking their paths, but for those who do prefer living in an environment free of all sorts (even microscopic) bits floating around indoors then avoid using anything less than perfectly clear water when washing these units down with soap.


The dirty evaporator coils of an air conditioner can be the cause of many problems. They stop airflow, reduce efficiency and even lead to a gas leak that releases toxic chemicals into your home’s interior.


A lack of care will only result in more issues such as mold or mildew growing from dirt mixing condensation along with it. If not cleaned on time then this corrosion may also affect other parts inside like refrigerant pipes which would release poisonous fumes leading to some dangerous diseases.


Ducts are your home’s air conditioning and heating systems. They should be cleaned regularly to prevent the risk of contaminants entering into living spaces. Dampen a cloth with water before wiping down any surfaces in or near an affected area for added protection against dirt, dust mites (or other allergy-inducing agents), mold spores, etc.
