f) How often should we clean an air conditioner
Air conditioner filters should be cleaned at least monthly. Monthly cleaning of filters is the best defence against long term contaminates which cause a biofilm over the surfaces of the air conditioner. A full wet wash clean back to "As New" hygienic condition is recommended to be performed whenever visible contaminates are present. In normal conditions this is anticipated to be at least once every 12 months. This recommended annual wet wash cleaning is a guideline only and the actual hygiene will vary significantly with humidity and highly contaminated environments. Always consult with your ACWWA Certified HVAC Wet Wash Specialist to get the most effective timeframe for your situation.
