If the air conditioning filter element is not properly maintained, a large amount of dust and dirt will accumulate on the surface of the filter plate, radiator, evaporator, and fins, causing airflow blockage; and your air conditioner will also experience cooling and heating effects, increasing power consumption, and noise. , the service life of the air conditioner will also be reduced.

What's more serious: the odor in the car will also endanger the health of the driver and passengers. If you stay in this environment for a long time, people will feel dizzy, nauseous, and even induce respiratory diseases.

Where does air conditioning wind come from?

In the car, there is air conditioning in summer and warm air in winter, but do you know where the wind comes from?

At present, most vehicles use an integrated cooling and heating air-conditioning system. Simply speaking, the ventilation principle of the air-conditioning is: the blower sucks the external air into the air-conditioning inlet, passes through the evaporator box and the air-conditioning filter element or filter, and passes through the vehicle along the air supply duct. The inner air outlet enters the cabin.

Why clean the air conditioner?

The air conditioner can adjust the temperature inside the car, remove moisture, make the air in the car fully circulated, and isolate the pollutants in the air.

However, affected by the external environment, the ventilation pipes and filter elements of the car air conditioner will be polluted.

There will be residual moisture in the evaporator and air-conditioning pipelines, and various bacteria are easily produced in a dark and warm environment. By replacing the air-conditioning filter element and cleaning the air-conditioning duct, the growth of bacteria can be effectively reduced.

Is the environment in the car safe?

Since the air-conditioning system can improve the air quality in the car, it can also play a role in isolating pollutants in the air when bad weather such as smog and sandstorms comes. However, the editor suggests that in most cases, the internal circulation of the air conditioner will more sensible.
