Advanced Odour Control Solutions for Air Conditioning
When it is too hot outside, there is nothing better than stepping into the comfort of your home, especially if you have air conditioning. But something can spoil the experience: an unpleasant odour coming out of the air unit. A disagreeable smell from your AC can suggest a problem, but it's a common issue with easy odour control solutions.
We should keep our home's environment as healthy as possible. When there are bad smells indoors, it lowers the home's air quality. Air conditioning not only delivers a comfortable temperature, but it can also improve air quality through specialised filters and reduce humidity. However, if unwanted smells come from your air conditioner, pay attention to them, and find the cause behind them for your comfort and the health of your aircon.
There are various reasons why your air conditioner may emit unpleasant odours, but the most common ones are musty or mouldy smells.
If it's been a while since you last cleaned your air conditioning filters, there's a chance that trapped dirt is creating an unpleasant, musty odour. AC filters trap dust, hair, and allergens, but buildup can impede airflow, causing bacteria growth and odours.
An excess amount of water can cause a greater issue: the growth of mildew and mould. These can cause increased allergic reactions, including sneezing and throat irritation.
The water droplets that collect inside air conditioners normally get removed through drainage. Clogged drainage can cause stagnant water smell, electrical damage, so resolve it as soon as possible.
We stock a choice of odour control products designed for air conditioning systems. These include the very popular Smelly Jelly. Smelly Jelly provides a pleasant fragrance in fan coil and cassette AC units.
It is easy to apply, you place it within the unit, close to the discharge point. Once the unit is turned on, the fragrance will instantly become apparent.
Another popular product is the Diversitech G2G Smell Buster Odour Eliminator which removes unpleasant odours from the air.
