Air Conditioner Coil Cleaning
It is important to change your air conditioner filters on a a regular schedule as part of routine maintenance. When your don’t, your air conditioning system’s evaporator coil becomes contaminated with dirt and causes your air conditioner to work a lot harder in order to cool your home. Not only does that result in higher energy costs, it can significantly restrict the air flow enough to cause the evaporator coil to freeze up, and the AC unit will stop cooling.
A dirty or clogged evaporator coil can have a detrimental impact on the lifespan of your air conditioning system because it needs to work much harder to cool your home. In addition to damaging your air conditioning unit, contaminants such as mold, dirt, and dust can contribute to increasing microbial growth and create indoor air pollution. Depending on the type of contaminants, adverse health conditions can result. It’s important to perform routine maintenance on a regular schedule and change your air filters monthly. You may need to change your air filter more often if you have a lot of dust, pet dander and smokers in the home. When your air conditioner coils get dirty, it compromises the effectiveness of your A/C system as well as your indoor air quality. We have many indoor air quality products and services to help improve the air your breathe and help to extend the times between needed coil cleanings.
Why Clean Coils?
It saves on energy costs.
The coils can work at peak efficiency.
Dirty evaporator coils freeze up due to restricted air flow
Indoor air quality improves and reduces the potential for any breathing or airway problems.
You air conditioning system will last longer.
Eliminates any indoor odors.
Dirty coils reduce cooling
Dirty coils shorten equipment life span
Dirty coils negatively affect air quality
Dirty evaporators spread mold and biological contaminants
Dirty coils interfere with the adequate heat transfer which causes higher discharge pressures.
Higher discharge pressures mean that it takes more electricity to do the same job.
Dirty coils can cost as much as 37% more to operate as its energy consumption increases.
