A common problem in the operation of modern air conditioners is the appearance of an unpleasant odour. Experts in household and industrial equipment strongly recommend that you immediately deal with and eliminate the causes of its appearance. They assure that ignoring will not lead to anything good:
The problem arises mainly due to improper equipment maintenance or a long break in its operation, but there may be other reasons. So, first, let's find out why the system's functioning leads to such consequences as an unpleasant smell. And we will find out how to quickly fix the problem by returning the device to service.
If the smell appeared after a long break in the operation of the split system, then it was caused by bacteria, dust mites, or even pathogens (respiratory tract diseases, colds). In this case, the danger is obvious: the air from such an air conditioner cannot be called clean. It is polluted and carries a danger. Namely, a person can worsen a chronic disease (asthma, allergies) and develop one of the above. Those in the room in such a situation often experience a deterioration in well-being and a decreased working capacity. Children are at significant risk in such a situation (they are more susceptible to various diseases since the young organism grows, develops and is not yet strong enough to resist pathogens and infections).
Also, installation errors lead to the reproduction of bacteria inside the device, as a result of which liquid stagnation forms. A putrefactive smell, a smell of dampness, and a stench testify to the colonization of the air conditioner by fungi and bacteria.
Cleaning the filter and disinfecting the equipment will solve the problem. Taking care of timely cleaning is especially important for a place with a large crowd of people (shopping centres, supermarkets, government agencies, office buildings).
Most air conditioners are used only in the summer. But should run it more often to eliminate the risk of bacterial growth.
In addition to the most dangerous reason, there are several others. You can determine the cause by smell.
There are many other reasons for a strange smell coming from your ac. As you can see, the problem can be solved in most cases by cleaning and disinfecting the equipment.
