Did you know that air conditioners can make your health conditions better? But it can also worsen it, especially if you fail to have it regularly maintained.
This is one of the many reasons it is very important that you get your air conditioning units in Clontarf, Balmoral, Bribie Island, Bulimba, Green Slopes, Hawthorne, Morningside, North Brisbane, North Lakes, Redcliffe, and South Brisbane checked.
This article discusses three health benefits you get by getting your AC serviced regularly.
#1. The cleaner your air filter is, the cleaner your indoor air will be.
This is a pretty straight-forward answer. A well-maintained air filtration ensures that your air conditioning unit will effectively remove bacteria, mould, allergens, and other air pollutants from getting breathed in by any of your family members. This makes it a MUST-DO, especially for families who suffer from allergies.
The same should be done for buildings and offices. Why?
A neglected AC system can increase the spread of bacteria and mould that can lead to air conditioning health problems, also known as sick building syndrome.
“The term ‘sick building syndrome’ (SBS) is used to describe an excess of chronic symptoms. Some short term symptoms may be described as irritation of the skin, eyes and throat. Headache, drowsiness and general irritancy are also indicators of SBS. Long term symptoms such as cancer and respiratory disease may be caused by long term, periodic exposure to chemicals such as formaldehyde and microscopic fibres such as asbestos.”
So if you wish to maintain the efficiency and productivity of your staff, ensure they breathe in clean air while working at the office. Schedule a regular aircon maintenance for your office, today.

#2. Prevents Heat-Related Problems
ABC News once published that heat waves kill far more people than natural disasters like bushfires, cyclones and floods. Thus, it is important for every home and offices in Brisbane to have efficient air conditioning systems, especially during summer.
Some of the health conditions that are at risk during this period include:
With an irregularly maintained air conditioner, you put your staff and family members in danger because they will be prone to sudden heat related attacks.
#3 Exposure to Refrigerant
Refrigeration chemicals used by a malfunctioning AC can cause health issues. Medical News Today published:
“Refrigerant poisoning can occur if a person inhales or consumes the chemicals — also known by the brand name of Freon — from cooling appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners.”
Although this happens in rare instances, it is still best for you to be cautious, because when you come into contact with these chemicals you will most likely suffer from a headache, irritation, frostbites, nausea, coughing, or chemical burns.
