Most people know how important it is that you have your AC system tuned up every year. Do you know though, what happens during that appointment? If you haven’t had your AC maintenance appointment scheduled, it’s never too late. One of the biggest reasons you need your system tuned up is to get your AC coils cleaned. This part of your AC plays a large role in keeping your home cool during the heat of the summer. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about AC coils and why cleaning them is so important.
Is Cleaning AC Coils Worth It?
When it comes to your AC coils, most people don’t even know what they do to cool your home. First of all, there are two different types of AC coils, evaporator coils and condenser coils. They both service different functions and are located in different places. The one thing that they do have in common is the need to be cleaned. Without cleaning these coils, you could end up with an AC system that isn’t working efficiently. If they get too dirty, they could end up causing your system to overheat and not work. This is how each of these sets of coils are cleaned and what they are used for.
– AC Condenser Coils: These coils are located in the outside unit. They are responsible for transferring the heat from inside your home to the outside with the use of refrigerant. These coils are going to get dirtier than the coils found inside because they are out in the elements. It makes it more important than ever that you clean them at least once a year. If you live somewhere that has a lot a pollution, you need to consider cleaning them a couple of times each year.
– AC Evaporator Coils: Even though these coils are found in the indoor portion of your system, they will still need to be cleaned as dust and debris can settle on them regardless of being inside. These coils are important because they are responsible for removing the heat and humidity from the inside of your home. When they are covered in a layer of dust, they can’t effectively do their job.
Why is AC Maintenance Important?
When you have routine maintenance performed on your AC system, it is ensuring your system is ready for the daunting task of keeping your home cool when the temperature outside is in the triple digits. Routine maintenance involves thoroughly cleaning the system and performing any small, minor repairs that are needed before they get large and more expensive.
