Cleaning HVAC Coils

Condenser and evaporator coils are an integral part to 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 both, 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. Acid formation can occur under these conditions, leading to lubricant breakdown and ultimately, equipment failure. Cooling air passing through the coils contains dust, dirt, pollen, moisture and other contaminants that clog the coils, promote the growth of organisms and thereby generate odors throughout an occupied space.

FACT 2: System longevity is dependent on having clean coils! In addition, the evaporator coil and its condensate pan can become fouled with pollen, mold spores, other biocontaminants and can have an adverse effect on indoor air quality. With all the moisture around the evaporator coil, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.

FACT 3: Indoor air quality is dependent on having clean coils! Clean coils the right way. While any attempt to clean coils on a consistent basis can be applauded, there are right ways and wrong ways of cleaning. Cleaning the wrong way can actually do more harm than good.
