Having in your kitchen is good or bad? if you have this question then let's dig out about this here.

Of course, you can have AC in your kitchen because it has lots of advantages but you should consider many things while installing AC in your kitchen.

It helps in cooling the chef and avoiding sweating.
The absence of sweat in the kitchen during summers will increase the chef's efficiency.


 Having AC in the kitchen is a bad idea because:
The kitchen needs to be ventilated smoothly during use.
The air in the kitchen is mostly smoky or oily, this oily and smoky air will accumulate in ac and can cause damage to AC.
The normal area in every house is 6*10 and f you want to have AC in your kitchen then you have to decrease the number of cabinets and change their arrangements to get the space for AC.

why I should not use an air conditioner in the kitchen

The state of the air conditioner installed in the room next to the kitchen where oily air is usually present due to cooking is full of grease and dust. The black part of the silver heat exchanger is all mold and dust containing oil stains. Air conditioners that are close to the kitchen and are not cleaned every year have an increased risk of damage year by year. 
In addition, I have already discussed why you should not use an air conditioner in the kitchen.

The air conditioner near the kitchen

The air conditioner near the kitchen is better than inside the kitchen. The fact that it can easily turn into a nasty stain become reduced.

Do you know why?

Because in single-family living rooms that are adjacent to open kitchen. There is no wall partition from the kitchen.
The air conditioner in the connected room contains less sticky stickiness other than mold and cotton dust because it is away from the kitchen and less exposed to oil stains.

Why the air conditioner gets dirty while cooking and how to deal

 with it

The air conditioner near the kitchen gets dirty much faster than the ones in other rooms. This depends on how often you cook, but I'll briefly explain the mechanism.

When you cook in the kitchen.
The oil vaporizes and mixes with water vapor to form oil smoke.
Oily smoke floats in the air and adheres to everywhere in the room.
Since it is originally oil, the adhered part becomes sticky.
Since the air conditioner sucks in the air in the room and expels it, it naturally sucks in oily smoke.
The air conditioner filter and the inside become sticky with oil. (It can also cause mold)
The smell of oil and mold causes an unpleasant wind from the air conditioner.
The above is happening when cooking and air conditioning are used together.

If you repeat this, the filter of your ac will turn brown.
Using an air conditioner that is dirty with mold, dust and oil is environmentally unsanitary and can cause allergies if you have children.

Also, if the filter becomes greasy with oil, dust will easily adhere and the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner will decrease. 

How to check and clean the  kitchen air conditioner filter

Check the filter inside the air conditioner near the kitchen once every two weeks. If left unattended, it will become clogged with oil stains and the cooling conversion rate will drop. The room doesn't get cold and cleaning becomes troublesome.

Dust can be removed by using a vacuum cleaner or a shower in the bath, but it is difficult to remove dirt with a vacuum cleaner because the filter that has absorbed oil is sticky. ..

Light stains can be removed by soaking in hot water and baking soda, but if the stains become severe, they need to be soaked in a special detergent. You can easily clean the filter without any hassle because you only need to put hot water and detergent in the garbage bag.

What to prepare
Trash bags
Any detergent for oil
Brush (toothbrush)
Sprinkle detergent on the filter and put it in the garbage bag.
Leave for 10 to 20 minutes
Take it out of the bag and wash it thoroughly with hot water (you can remove fine dirt with a special brush or toothbrush).

How to use AC in the kitchen

As many people make a mistake at first, I will explain that the air conditioner has almost no ventilation function. When the indoor unit and the outdoor unit are connected and the fan of the outdoor unit is running hard, it seems that the hot air in the room is discharged and the air is circulated, but in reality, the sucked air is used inside.

 Some modern air conditioners have ventilation.
If you use a ventilation fan and an air conditioner together, the cold air in the room will be discharged to the outside and you will think that it is a waste of electricity bill, but I think that it is better than the oil smoke scattered throughout the room and becoming sticky in the room. 

Now, I will explain the efficient procedure for not scattering oil smoke when using an air conditioner and a ventilation fan together.

Open the window near the ventilation fan a little before cooking
Turn the ventilation fan
Send the wind with a fan so that the cold air of the air conditioner comes to you
Start cooking
Keep the ventilation fan on for about 10 minutes after cooking

① The flow of wind is slow, and even if you open the window at the same time as cooking, you may not be able to create an escape route for the wind. So let's open the window a little first to secure a path for the wind between it and the ventilation fan.

② As soon as you open the window, start turning the ventilation fan. This allows fresh air to enter through the window, and the air is efficiently discharged from the ventilation fan by that amount.
 Even if the windows are closed and the ventilation fan is turned on, the air cannot be replaced, so the function of the ventilation fan cannot be demonstrated. Be sure to secure an air intake area and turn on the ventilation fan.

③ Since the ventilation fan is turned on, the cooling efficiency of the room will of course decrease, but by creating a path for the wind, it is possible to prevent the air conditioner from becoming dirty with oil smoke. You can also reduce the heat during cooking by hitting a circulator or a fan so that the wind hits you directly.

④ By the time you start cooking, the path of the wind has already been completed, so the oily smoke produced during cooking is efficiently discharged from the ventilation fan.

⑤ Immediately after cooking, oily smoke still remains in the air, so turn the ventilation fan for a while to discharge it.

If you think about measures against the heat of the kitchen in the summer along with measures against oil smoke,

Think of a cooking method that does not use fire as much as possible.
Change from gas stove to IH
There are also methods such as. Compared to gas stoves, IH cooking utensils are overwhelmingly less likely to spread oil smoke, so if you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen, you can leave it in the corner of your head.



Having ac in the kitchen is good if you take necessary measures in your kitchens and if you are not able to apply these measures then ac in the kitchen is bad for you.
If you use the air conditioner while cooking, the inside of the air conditioner will get dirty. Therefore, regular cleaning is the most essential.

Finally, I would like to briefly summarize the points to note when using the air conditioner in your kitchen while cooking.

Before cooking, open the windows and turn on the ventilation fan to create a flow of wind.
After cooking, turn the ventilation fan for 10 minutes to suck up the remaining oil smoke.
The air conditioner cleans the filter regularly.
If you really care about the smell, ask a professional to clean it.
A temporary odor control method.
Keep the windows open for 10 minutes after the start of operation.
Operate by blowing air at high temperature for 1 hour or more.
The set temperature is lowered by cooling operation.
Spray an antifungal spray.
