5 steps to clean the air conditioner at home and how to use it for good health in the hot sun

According to sharing from refrigeration engineers, the lack of regular cleaning air conditioning considered to be a common cause of performance impairment of this product. The air conditioner filter (commonly called the filter mesh) has the role of preventing dirt from entering the indoor unit. Therefore, after a period of use, especially in a space with a lot of dust (due to a polluted environment), cotton dust (from clothes, blankets), this area is “clogged up”, which hinders the airflow circulation.

Air conditional Bring cold air into the house, and at the same time draw hot air and dust out. This regular operation causes the air filter and blower system to accumulate dust. That’s why it’s important to perform regular air conditioning cleaning.

Not regularly cleaning the air conditioner is also a cause of wasted energy. Not only that, if the air conditioner is not maintained regularly, there is a risk of causing respiratory diseases for users such as: sore throatrhinitis …

To solve the above problem, Electronics – refrigeration expert Chu Ngoc Vu advises that people can remove the filter themselves and clean it completely to remove dirt, then reinstall it in its old position to continue using.

Specifically, the steps to clean the air conditioner at home are as follows:

Steps to clean air conditioner properly and safely.

Step 1: It is advisable to completely disconnect the power to the device by disconnecting the aptomat or the power plug of the air conditioner before cleaning to ensure electrical safety.

Step 2: Open the front cover of the air conditioner, then pull out the dust filter to the outside. Normally, by design, 1 air conditioner will have 2 dust filter nets.

Step 3: Clean the filter under the tap and use a brush to completely remove the dirt on the filter.

Step 4: After completely removing dirt, it is recommended to use a dry cloth to absorb all the water on the dust filter.

Expert Chu Ngoc Vu said.

According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, the filter should be cleaned about once a month to ensure optimal cooling efficiency. As for the overall cleaning of the entire air conditioner (ie, the filter will include the heater and the indoor unit), it should be cleaned about every 3 months.

Mr. Vu also noted that people, in the case of hiring workers, people can refer to the market price to avoid being “caught” – especially in the peak heat. Accordingly, the price of cleaning the air conditioner filter currently fluctuates around 100,000 VND/time; for general cleaning of the entire air conditioner ranges from 150,000 to 200,000 VND/time. The above price includes labor, inspection, cleaning.

In addition, each electronic-refrigeration product is subject to a warranty policy according to the company’s regulations, so users can consult the price or ask for support from the company’s warranty centers when the product is manufactured. product has a problem.

How to use air conditioner for good health

In the hot season, the temperature difference in the air-conditioned room compared to the outside is quite high. Therefore, people need knowledge to use air conditioners properly, to avoid harm to health, especially for young children.

BSCK1 Nguyen Thi Yen Ly – Head of Respiratory Pediatrics Department, Phu Tho Provincial Hospital of Obstetrics and Gynecology, said that most parents believe that children’s bodies often suffer from upper and lower respiratory tract diseases such as pharyngitis, inflammation bronchi … is due to the air conditioner. Especially in babies, many families do not dare to use air conditioners for children in the summer because they are afraid that their children will get sick.

However, BS. Yen Ly believes that this is an incorrect view, because if young children do not have special diseases such as malnutrition, or some congenital diseases, the subcutaneous fat layer is the means to keep the body’s heat. Therefore, using air conditioners is not the main cause of illness in children.

BS. Yen Ly recommends using air conditioners to keep children’s bodies healthy and limit respiratory diseases:

– Should turn on the fan in the air-conditioned room to create ventilation in the room.

– The temperature of the air conditioner should be between 26-28 degrees Celsius. Especially for babies and full-term babies, the temperature should be at 36.5 – 37.5 degrees Celsius. If the child is dressed, wear gloves. , wear socks, hats and blankets, the ideal temperature in an air-conditioned room is from 26 to 28 degrees Celsius. In addition to the newborn age, the temperature should be 28 degrees Celsius.

– Do not let the air conditioner blow directly at you. The location of the air conditioner should be high, the air vent of the air conditioner should not be placed directly towards the person lying down. Should be set to the lowest fan speed and set to rotation.

– Time to turn on the air conditioner does not exceed 2-3 hours each time. This means that every 2-3 hours, the mother should take the baby outside to normal temperature for 10-15 minutes. This is also the time to expel stagnant air, and at the same time incorporate sunlight into the baby’s room.

– Do not suddenly take your child out. When the child is sitting in the air-conditioned room, do not suddenly bring the child to the outside environment, the temperature difference can cause the child to have heat shock leading to fever, flu, cough.

If you want to take your child out, turn off the air conditioner, let the child continue to sit in that room, the gradual increase in the temperature of the room will help the child adapt more easily. When the temperature in the room is close to the temperature outside, then you should take the baby outside.

– Regularly clean the house and air conditioner. Pay attention to the maintenance time to ensure that the air conditioner is always clean and running at the correct capacity. Regularly clean the room to prevent bacteria from entering. Clean the air conditioner periodically.

– Keep baby’s body moist. Should cover a thin blanket, cover the abdomen, avoid dilated pores easily lead to colds.
