Coil cleaning is a very important process as far as your AC maintenance is concerned. Normally, an AC system has two coils namely evaporator coil and condenser coil which are made of copper tubes and aluminum fins. The condenser coil is located in the indoor unit and plays a key role in cooling. It does this by absorbing heat from the indoor air blown over by the air handler. On the other hand, the condenser coil also referred to as the warm coil is responsible for getting rid of warm air into the external environment.
Plantation Air Conditioning Repair have top of the range coil cleaning solutions for both the evaporator and condenser coils.
Why Coils Become Dirty?
As the air moves over coils; the pollen, dirt, dust, moisture and other contaminants its carrying gets deposited on the coils making them dirty and less efficient. In addition to this, the evaporator coil and the condensate pan can become fouled with mold spores, pollen and other bio-contaminants which can affect the quality of indoor air. If not maintained well, the moisture gathered on and around these coils can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.
Dirty coils cannot efficiently supply heat transfer and this results in greater energy consumption thus skyrocketing your energy bills. According to research, equipment that operates with dirty coils can use up to 37% more energy compared to those with clean coils. The cooling capacity of a system that has dirty coils can reduce by as much as 30%. Equipment failures have also been witnessed as a result of increasing operating pressure and temperatures which cause a breakdown of the lubricant of compressors.
Our Coil Cleaning Services
At Plantation Air Conditioning Repair, we have coil cleaning programs that guarantee you clean coils that will serve you for longer. We recommend that your coils be cleaned at least 4 times a year or more often if the environment you stay in exposes your AC system to dirt and dust.
Our cleaning methodology depends on the extent of coil contamination. For instance, we can blow low pressure compressed air across the fins or even use a soft bristle brush if your coils have light dust or dirt.
In some cases, we can apply steam at low pressure while taking care of the fins so that they do not fold over.
Where there is a need to apply foaming chemical on the coil services, we make use of a garden-type pump sprayer after which the form is then vacuumed up and the coil rinsed with clean water.
We continuously invent ways to better our coil cleaning processes with the latest being the use of pressure washers to clean your coils. We make use of low VOC coil cleaning chemicals which are biodegradable, non-acidic and non-fuming. These chemicals are then safely washed down the drains.
