Filthy Filters a big no-no

Filthy Filters a big no-no

Filthy Filters a big no-no

This is what you don’t want to see. Reverse-cycle air conditioning filters so filthy they pose a potential fire and health risk.

Sharpe Services found these clogged filters while undertaking a system service. Filters should be cleaned every three to six months depending on how often the system is being used. It is one of the few tasks a homeowner can perform.

Air conditioning systems rely on a certain rate of air flow to operate. Clogged filters stress the system, possibly leading to an electrical overload and fire.

From a health perspective the filters trap dirt and stop it spreading. Dirt in the filters can turn into mould. If not cleaned this dirty air can trigger sometimes serious respiratory reactions.

Sharpe Services’ tech cleaned these filters then tested the system for refrigerant pressure, electrical current draw and overall performance. Fire and health authorities stress the importance of regular servicing of cooling systems. Book your service today.
