Can Air Conditioners Make You Sick?

A well-maintained AC can contribute to a healthier environment, whereas a poorly maintained one can make you ill. By controlling humidity, the growth of dust mites and mould is reduced, which is beneficial to people with allergies. Additionally, because all air-conditioners are fitted with a filter, they can eliminate bacteria, virus, smoke, odours and even microbes. This is dependent on the type of AC unit installed.
