Do Your Condenser Coils Need Cleaned?
We know that cleaning your air conditioner might not be at the top of your to-do list, but it needs attention, or it will end up on the top of the expense list.
Don’t you want your system running efficiently for years and years?
The coils are one of the most important pieces of the system. Working in conjunction with the evaporator coil, they are responsible for removing the heat from your home.
Let’s keep your utility bill low and increase the life span of your system with a monthly cleaning. Follow these steps:
- Inspect your AC unit to ensure there isn’t any serious damage to the coils or other parts. If there is, stop and call your local HVAC tech.
- Grab a coil brush from your local hardware store and wipe it up and down like you are painting. This technique will remove any unwanted debris like grass, leaves, etc.
- Purchase a fin comb. This tool will straighten out any bent wires.
- Use a hose to wet down the condenser. Next, spray a generous amount of foaming coil cleaner onto the coils. The cleaner will start to foam. Let it sit for 10 minutes before spraying it off with the hose.
Hopefully, these steps effectively cleaned your AC coils, and I know your system is thanking you for it.
