Why do moulds grow in our aircon and why is airconditioning the best way to spread moulds, bacteria, and viruses?
Moisture build-up in airconditioning systems is inevitable with a humid environment and condensation issues. And these provide the perfect breeding ground for moulds and bacteria to grow. If these mould and bacteria grow in the exterior part of the system, it can be cleaned away. But how about the areas we can't reach?

Definition from Wikipedia:
"Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a combination of ailments associated with an individual's place of work or residence. A 1984 World Health Organization report into the syndrome suggested up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be linked to symptoms of SBS. Most of the sick building syndrome is related to poor indoor air quality. Sick building causes are frequently pinned down to flaws in the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Symptoms: Sensory irritation of the eyes, nose, throat; Neurotoxic or general health problems; Skin irritation & Nonspecific hypersensitivity reactions; and odor and taste sensations."
The symptoms referenced in the Wikipedia definition above are symptoms associated with mold and bacteria exposure.

Gelair™ Health-e SPLIT is available in one convenient size and will last from 6 to 12 weeks depending on the use of the SPLIT system air conditioner.
