If you're a pet owner or parent aiming to make your home air quality as trouble-free as possible, you've come to the right place.

Here, we delve into the nitty-gritty of maintaining your air conditioning units—specifically focusing on cleaning the filters of ducted AC systems, with a brief nod to reverse cycle air conditioning filters too. We’ll also highlight the critical importance of adding a sanitiser within your AC system. Ready to breathe easier? Let’s get started!

Why Clean Your AC Filters?

Before we dive into how to clean your filters, let’s understand why it’s so crucial. Dirty filters can harbor harmful bacteria and allergens, posing serious risks to your family’s health. Plus, clogged filters make your AC work harder, reducing its efficiency and lifespan.

The Science Behind Clean Air

AirClean Filters™ are designed with cutting-edge technology that blocks out tiny particles which traditional washable filters often miss. This not only ensures cleaner air but also protects your AC system from damage. By replacing old filters with our disposable ones, you’re taking a significant step towards safeguarding your loved ones from unseen threats like allergens and bacteria.

Why Regularly Replace Rather Than Clean Your AC Filters?


Regularly replacing your air conditioning filters is healthier than cleaning them because disposable filters are designed to capture finer particles that washable filters may miss. Over time, washable filters can accumulate bacteria and mold that are difficult to remove completely, even with thorough cleaning. Replacing the filter ensures you always have a fresh, contaminant-free barrier against airborne particles.

💸 More Cost-Effective

While it might seem more economical to clean and reuse filters, the hidden costs can add up. Dirty filters can cause your AC system to work harder, consuming more energy and increasing your utility bills. Additionally, the strain on the system can lead to more frequent breakdowns and costly repairs. By investing in new filters regularly, you maintain your system’s efficiency and avoid these additional expenses.

😌 Easier

Replacing filters is generally easier and less time-consuming than cleaning them. Cleaning requires multiple steps—vacuuming, washing, rinsing, drying, and sanitizing—which can be labor-intensive and messy. On the other hand, replacing a filter typically involves just a quick swap, saving you time and hassle.


If you still have your heart set on washing your existing filters isntead though, here is a Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning the most common types of Ducted AC Filters

Tools You’ll Need

– Soft brush or vacuum cleaner

– Mild detergent

– Warm water

– Disposable gloves

– Airclean Sanitiser

1. Power Down Your System First things first—always turn off your air conditioning unit before starting any maintenance work. Safety is paramount!

2. Locate the Filter For ducted systems, the filter is usually found in the return air grille or ceiling register.

3. Remove the Filter Carefully remove the filter from its housing. If it’s been a while since you last cleaned it, prepare for some dust!

4. Vacuum or Brush Off Loose Debris Using a soft brush or vacuum cleaner with a nozzle attachment, gently remove loose dirt and debris from both sides of the filter.

5. Wash with Mild Detergent Prepare a mixture of mild detergent and warm water in a basin or sink large enough to submerge the filter completely. Let it soak for about 15 minutes.

6. Rinse Thoroughly Rinse off all soap residues under running water until it runs clear.

7. Dry Completely Allow the filter to dry naturally—avoid using heat sources like hair dryers as they can damage delicate materials.

8. Reinstall Carefully Once dry, reinstall the filter back into its original position.

Don’t Forget: Add a Sanitiser! Adding an antibacterial sanitiser is crucial for keeping harmful bacteria at bay within your AC system: This additional step ensures that every breath you take in your home is as pure as possible.

A Quick Note on Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning While our focus has been on ducted systems today, it’s worth mentioning that reverse cycle air conditioners follow similar steps for filter maintenance:

1. Turn off and unplug.

2. Remove front panel.

3. Repeat steps involving cleaning

4. Also be sure to add a sanitising strip to your unit.

Though these units may have different designs or placements for their filters compared to ducted systems—they require just as much care! By regularly maintaining clean filters in both ducted and reverse cycle air conditioning systems—and incorporating sanitisers—you’re taking proactive steps toward ensuring excellent indoor air quality for everyone at home—especially young children who are more susceptible than others when exposed to long-term unhealthy environments filled with germs and pathogens.
