Coil Cleaning

Accumulated debris and dirt on an air conditioner or heat pump coil increase airflow resistance through the coil, so the air handler efficiency will decrease accordingly

Why do we clean the evaporator or cooling coil( usually inside your house), or the condenser coil(usually outdoors)?

Accumulated debris and dirt on an air conditioner or heat pump coil increase airflow resistance through the coil, so the air handler efficiency will decrease accordingly; increasing the cost of heating or cooling the building. In some cases cooling or condensing coils can become so dirt that air flow is seriously reduced, leading sometimes to a common evaporator or cooling coil icing problem inside or an superheated, damaged compressor outside

An obstructed evaporator coil can cause the compressor to operate to higher than normal temperatures ; thus shortening the life of the compressor motor itself.

To ameliorate this problem change your AC air filter in a regular basis.

If you notice icing on the evaporator coil, or water leaking call us immediately and prolong the life of your valuable AC system.
