The importance of AC maintenance in Qatar

The temperature of Qatar is as diverse as the population since the temperatures go higher than the massive skyscrapers. This chart right here gives a clear picture of how the city is not only rich but also extremely hot!

For anyone looking for cool and dust free air, goes outside, unlike in Qatar one would just turn on an air conditioner. This has got more to do with the country’s desert climate which is one of its prominent identities that is cherished! On the other hand, for a fitness freak out here, he would rather work out in his air-conditioned house gym than head out for a jog and burn his skin instead of calories. Analysing the above chart, one would be motivated to move to Qatar to get over his/her claustrophobia, as it is clear one may not be able to survive here without shutting oneself any box as long as its air conditioned!

With this being the scenario, the AC breaking down would only lead to a mental breakdown! That is where AC maintenance is very essential.

Air care

We as humans are very conscious about everything we consume, from filtering water to sterilizing everything that encounters us. Hence there is no excuse for us to neglect pure and dust free air, while we are made aware that the atmosphere is filled with toxic gases released due to our extensive use of technology, be it automobiles, factories, or any place where the waste but noxious air is dumped in the open, contaminating it.

We are just one step behind inhaling purified air by just turning on the air conditioner. Although if this air conditioner is not maintained, the toxins that we are filtering follows the air back into the space we consider as sterilized. When cleaning the air conditioner is synonymous to inhaling good air, it turns into a priority.

In a city such as Qatar which inhibits a larger population that hustles indoors, maintenance of the air conditioner becomes all the more necessary as compared to any other home appliance. The unique weather here due to its vast desert at its asset, also bring in sand that fogs up the atmosphere. While our air conditioners bar all of this, the least one can do is maintain it by cleaning it by a professional technician.

House of germs

The air conditioner is very human in the aspect of cleaning, if not done frequently it can be a home to the same bacteria that it saves us from. The conditioner, while circulating air through it, restricts the germs and bacteria from passing through it, which at later stages gets accumulated. This creates a perfect home to bacteria which would be recirculated once it is highly clogged up. Hence the air that had to be conditioned is now contaminated.

The moist nature of the insides of the air conditioner due condensation taking place creates a conducive environment for mould to thrive. Mould release poisonous chemicals into the air and produce bad odour. When the room has an odour that is indistinguishable be cautioned about the mould that has made a home in your air conditioners duct.

Detox

The good mood that a relaxing vacation sets you in to get back to work or a sparkling home after a professional deep cleaning, a greater level of efficiency is achieved after a good detox. Similarly, the air conditioner also needs frequent cleaning, ideally twice a year, to work smoothly. Technically explained, the dust and other debris that the duct obstructs from entering the space of the room gradually accumulates to create a blockage reducing the efficiency of the air conditioner.

Better bills

Man created technology to build something that could work without getting exhausted, yet that comes with its own drawbacks. Turns out machines do not get exhausted; they only get dirty. They are fatigued by this dirt and consume more than the optimum amount of energy to function. relating to the air conditioner, when not cleaned frequently, consumes more power, due to bogging down the compressor with more work, which subsequently leads to higher consumption of electricity. While there is a substantial decrease in power consumption when cleaned, which means less daunting bills.
