Preventing climate change by maintaining air conditioners before use i…

Recorded by Supu



Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying the sunny days! Today I am going to talk about the importance of cleaning home air conditioners before summer. As the summer season approaches, homeowners in Korea often focus on ensuring their air conditioning (AC) systems are functioning optimally. Today I received a message from my one-room owner, and she advised me to check my air conditioner before summer to know if there is something wrong. While many individuals recognize the importance of regular AC maintenance for improved indoor comfort, it is equally crucial to emphasize the significant role that cleaning AC machines plays in reducing climate crisis mitigation. Neglecting this essential task can lead to decreased efficiency, increased energy consumption, higher greenhouse gas emissions, and a potential strain on the environment. This brief explores the importance of cleaning AC machines in homes before summer and highlights its positive impact on climate crisis mitigation efforts. A clean AC machine operates more efficiently, resulting in reduced energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. Over time, dust, debris, and dirt accumulate in the AC unit's filters, coils, and vents. These deposits obstruct airflow, making the system work harder to achieve the desired cooling effect. By cleaning the AC machine thoroughly before the summer season, homeowners can ensure proper airflow, allowing the system to function optimally and consume less energy. Reduced energy consumption translates into a smaller carbon footprint and contributes to mitigating climate change. Air conditioners are responsible for maintaining the indoor air quality of homes. A neglected AC system can become a breeding ground for allergens, bacteria, mold, and other harmful microorganisms. Dirty filters can no longer effectively capture airborne particles, leading to the circulation of polluted air within the living space. Regularly cleaning AC machines helps maintain a healthier indoor environment by reducing the presence of allergens and contaminants, thus promoting the well-being of occupants. Breathing cleaner air also means less strain on the respiratory system, enhancing overall comfort and productivity. Cleaning AC machines not only enhances their performance but also extends their lifespan. When dirt and debris accumulate within the system, it puts unnecessary strain on various components such as the compressor and fan, leading to premature wear and tear. By keeping the AC unit clean, homeowners can reduce the likelihood of breakdowns, improve reliability, and avoid costly repairs or replacements. This, in turn, minimizes the generation of electronic waste, a significant environmental concern. Prolonging the life of AC machines contributes to a more sustainable approach to cooling homes and reduces the need for manufacturing new units. So, cleaning AC machines in homes before the summer season is a critical step in reducing climate change mitigation. It enhances energy efficiency, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. Additionally, clean AC units provide better indoor air quality, promoting a healthier living environment. By extending the lifespan of AC machines, homeowners minimize electronic waste and contribute to a more sustainable future. Prioritizing regular maintenance, including cleaning AC systems, ensures optimal performance, saves energy and costs, and helps protect the environment. So, please check out your air conditioners before the summer begins! Thank you for listening, and I'll see you soon on my next podcast!
