Central AC units are oftentimes in need of repair due to lack of preventative maintenance and cleaning. You can only imagine the amount of pollen, dust, dirt, and other air particles that get sucked into your AC unit over the course of a year. Without proper maintenance and cleaning, your AC unit can become plugged and clogged – particularly you AC condenser coils.
Cleaning condenser coils on your outdoor AC unit will help prevent clogs, plugs, and other more serious breakdowns that occur as a result of the system over-working itself. On top of this, cleaning condenser coils helps the unit cool more efficiently, and cut down the power consumption of your AC – saving you energy costs. It is important to clean the coils early in the year, before the AC unit is needed for the summer.
