We hope that the above photo is not what the coils look like in your home! But if they do, you need to get those coils cleaned.
When your air conditioner is turned on, basically the system's blower pushes warm air over the chilled evaporator coils while the exhaust fan blows hot air away from heated condenser coils. Regardless of the type of air conditioning system your home has, it works in this way.
Due to how they operate within the system's air handler, AC coils need to be maintained in good condition and kept clean to retain efficiency.
Air flow is restricted in a system with clogged coils; even a very fine layer of dust will affect system function. Therefore, AC coil cleaning is vital to both maintaining an efficient system as well as preventing health risks associated with the recirculating dirt, dust, and mold that can collect on coils.
Potential Damage Due to Dirty Coils
- Permanent compressor and coil damage
- Reduced air flow and decreased efficiency
- Reduced air quality
- Spread of mold and other contaminants throughout your home
The best time of the year for cleaning your home's AC system's coils is in the early spring, before the oppressive heat of a south Florida summer starts. However, if you haven't had your coils cleaned recently, don't wait any longer!
