If you are a UAE resident, you surely know, and have perhaps even witnessed a noticeable amount of sandstorms around lately. But the real issues are the unwanted dust particles, and the allergens that enter your house during these storms.
Are you getting worried about the cleaning part? Here’s what you should actually be worried about- the harm that it will cause to your family’s health, and your Air Conditioners as well
If you have read any of our previous blogs, you must be aware how these dust particles can contain millions of germs and bacteria that can not only affect your respiratory system but your lungs, and heart as well.
However, what you may not be aware of, is the fact that these sandstorms can reduce the lifecycle of your Air Conditioners as well. This is because most of these dust particles accumulate in the filters and penetrate deeper into the circuits of your AC. If not cleaned on a regular basis, the germs present along with the dust particles, can breed inside, hence contaminating your indoor air (and often releasing a foul smell as well).
If you think that your HVAC filter is effective enough to prevent all the harm, here is a list of filter efficiencies for you to assess:
- Mesh Filter: 10%-20% effective
- Aluminium Filter: 40%-50% effective
- Hock Hair Filter: 50%-70% effective
- Synthetic Filter: 70%-90% effective
As you can see from the above list, none of the filters are 100% effective. This is exactly why it is important for you to consider regular cleaning of your HVACs, or else it can affect the health of your family, bit by bit.
Are you wondering how to take care of your indoor air, and protect your family from the above mentioned problems? Here is what you can do:
- Get your HVACs regularly inspected, cleaned, and serviced
- Test and balance your ACs from time to time
- Test for any leakages
- Keep your doors and windows closed
- Vacuum and clean your indoor surfaces every day
- Maintain the humidity levels below 50% to avoid the growth of mold and mildew
- Ensure you have proper and efficient ventilation
