When battling the brutal heat of Las Vegas, most homeowners will do whatever it takes to make their air conditioner more efficient. Proper maintenance is the best thing you can do for your air conditioner. A big part of that is cleaning the air conditioning coils. This job may be dreaded, but it is an important part of your AC maintenance. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about cleaning your air conditioning coils and why it is so important.
Why Cleaning your AC Coils is so Important
When there is dirt and debris that has built up on your air conditioning coils, your unit isn’t able to cool air as efficiently. You will find that your air conditioner needs to work twice as hard to cool the air over a unit that is cleaned properly. More over, when you don’t clean it regularly enough, you may be facing costly repairs much sooner than a unit that has had the right cleaning and maintenance. Over the course of your unit’s life, if you haven’t performed the proper amount of cleaning and maintenance, you could face replacement much sooner than you want to. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to cleaning the AC coils.
AC Coil Cleaning Varies Depending on the Unit
Every AC unit is different. The amount of cleaning that is required for your unit depends on a couple of different factors. If you live in an area that receives an abnormal amount of wind/dust/dirt, you will find that you have to clean your coils more frequently. For most people, their AC coils require cleaning once a year to keep them working properly. Another factor is how often you run your unit. If there is heavy AC use in your home, you will have to clean it more often as well. If your unit isn’t working right, this is one of the first things you should check. Sometimes, you will find that the only thing your unit needed was a good cleaning.
How to Clean Your AC Coils
When it comes to cleaning your AC coils, you want to do so with care. You want to avoid bending or breaking them, and this can be done when cleaning is too aggressive. When they bend or break, it is a costly mistake. If your coils aren’t coming clean with a basic hose, it may be time to call in the professionals to ensure you don’t damage your coils further while getting the grime off them.
