Air conditioner on.
Breathe freely again.
Thanks to airco well® air conditioning cleaning.
Air conditioning in the car can be a real relief on hot days. But did you know that it also poses health risks?
Indeed, a contaminated air conditioner can lead to the spread of bacteria, fungi and other micro-organisms. These settle in the damp and dark areas of the air conditioner and can trigger respiratory diseases and allergies. For this reason, experts recommend having the air conditioner cleaned regularly.
Air conditioning cleaning with airco well® -
more than just a pollen filter replacement.
Simply replacing the pollen filter is not enough to effectively combat pollution, mould and bacteria in the air conditioner. This is because these pollutants are mainly located in the evaporator of the car's air conditioning system. An airco well® air conditioning cleaning at one of our certified partner workshops, on the other hand, guarantees a holistic cleaning.
VDI recommendation for air conditioning cleaning:
For better air quality in the car
The VDI (Association of German Engineers) also advocates regular cleaning of the air conditioning system in the car: The VDI guideline VDI/ZDK 6032 Sheet 2 "Air technology; air quality in vehicles; hygiene requirements for ventilation technology; cars/trucks" advises regular and proper cleaning of the air conditioning system and filters to improve the air quality in the car and minimise health risks. It also recommends replacing the cabin air filter at least once a year and having the air conditioning system professionally cleaned every two years. For people with allergies or other health conditions, cleaning should be done even more frequently.
Air conditioner cleaning. A safe bet!
Why air conditioner disinfection is bad for you and your vehicle
In the context of an air conditioner cleaning, people often talk about disinfection. However, disinfection of the air conditioning system is not only not recommended for you, but also for your vehicle.
First, the disinfectant attacks the components of the air conditioner and can cause long-term damage to the air conditioner. In addition, disinfectant in the evaporator of the air conditioner can be potentially dangerous. The air conditioner evaporator is an important part of the system that cools and dehumidifies the air. If disinfectants get into the evaporator, they can become airborne and be inhaled, causing respiratory problems and other health issues. In short, this means that vehicle occupants directly inhale a high alcohol content, which is poorly tolerated by the human body.
The airco well® process was therefore specially developed to ensure gentle and effective cleaning of air conditioning systems. A combination of high-pressure and chemical cleaning is used, which neither affects the components of the air conditioning system nor endangers human health. After an air conditioning system cleaning with airco well® you can be sure that you will only breathe in pure and clean air.
Why regular air conditioner cleaning is important
A humid environment in the car air conditioning system offers the best conditions for odour formation: because it provides an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and mould. Particularly if the cabin air filter is overloaded, the levels of dust, pollen and pollutants in the air can increase enormously.
A lack of hygiene in the air conditioning system can then, among other things, cause unpleasant odours in the car and affect the health of the vehicle's occupants.
Inhalation of the contaminated air can lead to various health complaints, such as irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Allergy and asthma sufferers may be particularly sensitive to such exposure. In addition, polluted air can impair concentration and reaction times. That's why it's important to regularly clean the air conditioning system in your car and have it serviced.
