Does my Ductless Mini-split need to be cleaned??!!

As Ductless Mini-Split systems continue to grow in popularity all throughout the United States and elsewhere. They are versatile, efficient and provide a great alternative to traditional forms of air conditioning and heating. You may have had your system installed a few years ago and were told that the system is “maintenance free”, besides simply cleaning the removable filters, but this has proven to be very untrue!

Ductless Mini-Splits have a filter system that allows a high airflow that helps allow for the system to be efficient but those filters also allow for a lot of particles to travel into the evaporator coil and to collect on it and the barrel fan inside the unit. In addition, the units drain pans also allow for standing moisture which contributes to mold growth inside the unit, specifically on that pesky barrel fan! When the units become dirty you may notice that the fan does not move air as well as it use to and the unit may not cool as well. You may even notice moisture spitting from the unit or a terrible “smelly sock” odor emitting from the system. This is why it is important to assure that you have a professional with proper equipment clean your system regularly. Did you know that a clean ductless system can be up to 35% more energy efficient than a dirty one?

I thought these were maintenance free?!

The most common statement we hear from customers on the jobsite is “I thought these things were maintenance free”. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. It’s true, most HVAC companies when installing these systems will simply tell the customer that the only maintenance that needs to be done is a simple cleaning of the filters. The reality is that these systems do not use fine filter systems and continually re-circulate the air in your home. This combined with the moisture from the condensate of the system, drain pan and any other moisture in the air, is a recipe for a dirty, moldy and possibly smelly mini-split.

This is where Cool Clean Services comes to save the day. We are NY’s first and only company that solely focuses on cleaning and hygiene of ductless mini-splits. We have the experience and professional tools to do the job safely and effectively. This is not a do it yourself task for the average homeowner to take on over the weekend. Appropriate tools and knowledge are needed to protect your home and mini-split from damage.

If your system has buildup, odor, or just doesn’t cool as well, call us today! 516-515-0124

The Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality on Your Family

We are all aware of the pollution in the outdoor air and its impacts on our bodies. We hear about it on the news and can read about it on our phones. Still, have you ever wondered about the air quality inside your own home? We consider our homes to be safe places. It is where we can come back to kick off our shoes and let go of a stressful day. What if I told you that the quality of the air you are breathing in could be less than ideal for you and your family? Our air conditioners keep us cool during the sweltering summer months but increase the number of pollutants in our homes if not appropriately maintained.

What Causes an Air Conditioning System to Release Pollutants?

We will discuss the multitude of reasons an a/c unit can cause a decrease in indoor air quality. Running an air conditioner year after year without the proper maintenance will lead to a build-up of biological toxins. An air conditioning unit holds a significant amount of moisture inside. This moisture can lead to a harmful amount of mold.

When long-term mold exposure occurs, many will experience unpleasant symptoms. [1]

  • Irritation to the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs.
  • Asthma/trouble breathing
  • Allergy responses (runny nose, watery eyes, fever-like symptoms, etc.).
  • Chest pains
  • Nausea

Another way your air-conditioning or Mini-Split system can decrease the air quality in your home is rodents and other pests. These tiny creatures create homes in and around the a/c units. Rodents and insects leave their droppings in the pathway of the circulating air running the risk of bacteria floating around in your home.

Other pollutants include pollen and dust that accumulate in your a/c systems throughout the year. Pollen and dust can cause amplified allergies throughout the seasons. In addition, recurrent exposure to these pollutants can increase your risk of developing Asthma. The CDC states, “asthma is a chronic disease of the airways that causes recurrent and distressing episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing” [2].

Identifying whether or not you’re a/c unit needs cleaning is sometimes tricky. It is always a safe bet that you require a unit cleaning if

· It has been six months or more since your last cleaning

· There is a funky smell coming from your unit

· You have begun to experience the mild/moderate symptoms listed above

How These Toxins Affect Your Children

Poor indoor quality and environmental irritants can put children at a higher risk of developing illnesses due to their narrow bronchioles. Unfortunately, children are among the largest at-risk groups regarding air quality [3].

An infants’ immune system is not as skilled as an adult’s immune system. Due to a weaker immune response, their bodies have a more challenging time breaking down toxins that make their way into their lungs and bloodstreams. As a result, an infant cannot detoxify and excrete toxins and adults (Tamburlini et al., 2002) [4]. Without the ability to filter out toxins and irritants accumulated in the air, a build-up can occur, leading to preventable life-long illnesses and allergies.

When an a/c unit pushes out low-quality air, children are regularly exposed to poor air quality—especially infants who spend most of their early years indoors. Many parents even run air-conditioners in their little one’s rooms to improve sleep quality. But if the air quality coming from your a/c unit is poor, your child can suffer illness.

I know. This information can feel very scary. The reality of poor indoor air quality effects on children and adults is of an upsetting nature, but that is not to say that it is not preventable. So how can you ensure that you and your family remain healthy and safe all year round?

How to Prevent Poor Air Quality in Your Home

The most efficient way to ensure that your indoor air quality is in a good range is to perform A/C cleaning services. Cleaning you’re a/c unit will clear out the mold, animal waste, pollen, dust, and other microbiological irritants. In addition, a simple cleaning can prevent a harmful blockage in an a/c or Mini Split unit. This straightforward procedure can avoid the suffering of chronic illnesses and heighten discomfort from allergies.

Maintaining an a/c or Mini Split maintenance list is a simple way to prevent air quality issues. The recommended time between cleaning is a maximum of 6 months. Not going more than six months between cleanings ensures that the amount of build-up does not affect the air quality in your home.

Clearing your units of pre-existing build-up and bacteria does not have to be complicated either. With just a phone call, a Mini Split cleaning service can provide you with the services you need.

In addition, these systems offer a tremendous amount of reliability, but it is not entirely maintenance-free as with everything. How can you be sure that your system is running correctly? Well, ductless mini-split cleaning is the only way to ensure that your system runs to its fullest potential. We recommend conducting regular cleanings to maintain a working system. Let us review the benefits of leading a system deep clean. Improved system efficiency Over time, the high airflow found in ductless mini-split systems causes a build of dirt and dust in the design, hindering its efficiency. Dust, dirt, pollen, and pet hair are a few things that can cause such a buildup. As these particles clog the pumps and coils, the airflow decreases. Over time, the blockage can be too much for the system, and the airflow will cease. Contacting a professional can reduce the risk of injury and damage to the system.
