Pro Guide to Cleaning HVAC Condenser and Evaporator Coils
Condenser and evaporator coils are an integral part of HVAC systems. Dirty A/C coils cause systems to run hotter, longer, and cost a LOT more to operate. They also burn through components faster. One of the quickest and safest ways to maintain your HVAC system is through a comprehensive coil cleaning program for evaporator and condenser coils.
The fact is that an A/C system operating with dirty coils can use up to 37% more energy than it does with clean coils. Higher temperatures and operating pressures caused by dirty coils can also shorten the life of the equipment. A fouled coil cannot supply proper heat transfer, resulting in higher discharge pressures and greater energy consumption.
FACT 1: Maximum heat transfer is dependent on having clean coils! In addition to energy consumption, other byproducts impact your coils. Cooling air passing through the coils contains dust, dirt, pollen, moisture, and other contaminants that clog the coils, promote organisms' growth, and thereby generate odors throughout occupied space. An acid formation can occur under these conditions, leading to lubricant breakdown and, ultimately, equipment failure.
FACT 2: System longevity is dependent on having clean coils! It can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold with all the moisture around the evaporator coil. In addition, the evaporator coil and its condensate pan can become fouled with pollen, mold spores, other bio-contaminants and can hurt indoor air quality.
FACT 3: Indoor air quality is dependent on having clean coils! Clean coils the right way. While any attempt to clean coils consistently can be applauded, there are right ways and wrong ways of cleaning. Cleaning the wrong way can actually do more harm than good.
