The hot summer will be over soon. Can the idle air conditioner just pull out the plug? That’s just the first step. If you want to increase the service life, remember to give the air conditioner a bath.
Air conditioning diseases may occur to everyone. You need to clean the air-conditioners both at the beginning and end of the season. After a summer’s use, a lot of dust and dirt accumulated on the evaporator fins and air filter screen. In order to avoid bacteria breeding after the air conditioner is idle, it is necessary to clean the air conditioner after it stops use.
China CDC conducted a survey of household air conditioners in Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen:
88% of the total number of bacteria exceeded the standard;
84% of the total number of mold exceeded the standard;
The highest number of bacteria detected in the heat sink of an air conditioner is 91259 / C ㎡, which is nearly 40 times higher than the standard, and the most serious one is nearly 100 times higher than the standard.
Why is the air conditioner so dirty?
When the air conditioner is running, the indoor is a closed space, and the air is not in circulation. The metabolites, exhaust gas, dust, and particulate matter produced by the human body will enter the air conditioner with the indoor air circulation, making the air conditioner dirty.
Therefore, it is necessary to use air conditioning reasonably to make the family more healthy.
1. Clean the air conditioner regularly
When it comes to the air conditioning season, there will always be cough sounds, especially in children.
If you don’t clean it for a long time, bacteria and pollutants are blown into the room by the air conditioner and float in the air. In addition, indoor ventilation is not smooth, so it is very easy to suffer from air conditioning disease. In addition, the dirt attached to the filter screen, heat sink, and other parts of the air conditioner will also affect the refrigeration and heating performance of the air conditioner.
2. Pay attention to the temperature and humidity
Do not be greedy for a cool air-conditioner, pay attention to the temperature adjustment. The room temperature should be kept at 26 ℃ – 28 ℃. In addition, the wind speed should not be too strong, and the air outlet must not blow directly to the body.
3. Do not stay in the air-conditioned room for a long time
A long time in an air-conditioned room will affect our health. It is recommended to open the window regularly for ventilation or put a basin of water to increase the humidity in the air.
Air conditioning has become one of the essential tools to spend the hot summer. Blowing an air conditioner is excellent, but don’t forget to use it reasonably and clean it regularly.
