Condenser Coil Cleanings

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.

What Is a Condenser Coil?

The outdoor condenser coil has a tough job. In hot weather, it takes concentrated heat collected from your home and pushes it out into the hot outdoor air. Your condenser coil has to move a lot of air to get rid of this collected heat. If the coil is dirty , or if plants or other objects are too close to the AC unit, the fan in the outdoor coil can’t move the correct amount of air required for good performance and and efficiency. Not only does this raise your electricity cost for air conditioning your home, but may also lead to breakdowns of other parts in the AC unit and shorten the life of the unit as a whole.
