Install an HVAC and Keep Cool

The Australian summer can be super hot. If you live in Australia, you will want to make sure you can stay cool during the intense heat. I came to realise how important HVAC systems are when I moved into an apartment which didn't have HVAC. It was OK in the winter, but by the summer, it was terrible. I called in an HVAC contractor and asked them to install a new system. It was amazing what a difference it made. The contractor also gave me some advice about how to maintain the system. I hope this blog is useful to you.

3 Benefits of Getting Your Ducted Air Conditioning System Cleaned


The air conditioning system in your home forms the front line of defence against the intense of an Australian summer. To prevent your air con system from failing it is vital that you keep it in good condition. As well as maintaining the mechanical parts of the system it is also important that your ducted air conditioning system is properly cleaned. Below is a guide to benefits of having your ducted air conditioning system professionally cleaned.

Reduced illness

If the ducts on your air conditioning system are not regularly cleaned, this may have a negative impact on your health and the health of your family. During operation, dust and debris may build up within the ducts. Exposure to this dust may trigger allergies which may result in a runny nose, watering eyes, sneezing and difficulty breathing. If a member of your family has asthma, an attack could be very dangerous or even life threatening. Having a professional contractor clean the ducts can help to reduce the risk that you or your family will be affected by these problems.

Reduced soiling in your home

A dirty air conditioning duct may also cause the fans on the unit to blow dust and debris onto the carpets and other soft furnishings of your home. If you notice that you have to brush or hoover your carpet on a more regular basis, this could be a sign that your ducted air con system may require professional cleaning. Having the ducts cleaned can help to reduce the rate at which your home becomes unclean.

Reduced pest problems

The dirt and debris which can build up in the ducts of your air con system can make appealing homes for a range of pests such as cockroaches, mice and rats. Once these pests have entered your air con system, they are unlikely to confine themselves to this space and will eventually enter your home where they can cause all kinds of unpleasant problems. Having the vents cleaned can help to keep these pests out of your home.

If you think that the ducts of your home air conditioning system need cleaning, you should always contact a ducted air conditioning contractor. If you attempt to clean the ducts yourself, you may, in fact, may make matters worse. A home vacuum cleaner will not have the correct filters which are needed to deal with the finely powdered dust which can collect in an air con system, and could result in this dust being spread further into your home.
