Whether you live in an area with very high temperatures all year round or you only experience some warmth seasonally, you may have a ducted air conditioning system installed in your home or workplace. Whichever the case, many people heavily rely on the physical and mental relief that these systems can bring. However, your aircon isn’t always safe, and if you’re noticing problems with its efficiency, then you best listen up. We know this sounds a bit crazy, but every so often, there may be weak points left in your walls post-installation. Even at its smallest, this opening can create a point of entry to small unwanted pests. Among these include mice, rats, snakes, geckos, and cockroaches, and once inside, they can cause considerable damage. Let’s take a look at the benefits routine checks have to offer for homeowners on the Gold Coast
Prevent Health Hazards
It’s no great mystery that most animals carry types of bacteria and even viruses, some of which can be seriously dangerous to human health. Let’s take the rat or mouse, for example. As cute as they look, if they make their way into your air vents, hair, urine, or droppings can make their way into the air you breathe. This may cause sensitive individuals to endure various degrees of allergic reactions and potentially worsen asthmatic symptoms.
Clean Smelling Air
Unfortunately, many animals who think your four walls would make a sound spot for nesting their babies are sadly mistaken. When they die, they’re not seen or heard, but boy do they let their passing be known through smell. Implementing regular maintenance checks will ensure that you don’t have to experience your home welling up with foul odour that, believe us, nobody wants around.
The damage that can be caused is chaotic and often will never be brought to light unless routine checks are performed. If the damage incurred is already significant, the costs to repair can be frightening for homeowners. Not to mention the amount of time and labour that it takes to fix an entire system.
Damage to the air conditioning system caused by pests can be a nightmare to deal with. We want to help you prevent these types of issues from occurring, or assist you if they’ve already occurred.
