Top Benefits of Cleaning Your AC Condenser And Evaporator Coils

One of the most important things you can do for your warehouse, factory or workplace’s energy efficiency is to have your HVAC or air conditioning system’s condenser and evaporator coils checked regularly and cleaned as necessary. This will also ensure you are working within health and safety standards and fulfilling your requirements.

Cleaning the coils is often overlooked, however, this task is vital to keep your unit running smoothly and efficiently. Here are the top benefits of cleaning your AC coils:

1. Energy-efficient HVAC or AC system operations

Dirty evaporator and condenser coils force compressors to work harder and run longer than necessary. This leads to an increase in energy usage and utility costs. Statistics suggest that a dirty condenser coil could potentially increase your energy bill by up to 30%.

2. Improved air quality and comfort

Not cleaning the air conditioner coils has a negative impact on your indoor air quality and health. A dirty evaporator coil reduces airflow, which results in a decrease of heat transfer and a decline in the dehumidification process.

As a result, your AC unit will experience trouble reaching the set temperature. Moreover, it can result in a high amount of dust mites that can worsen asthma and allergies, and increase the spread of bacteria and viruses.

3. Increased life span of your AC unit

The evaporator and condenser coils are the most critical parts of your AC system and where the magic happens. These two coils are where the actual transfer of heat happens.

Your unit’s coils will be having a hard time doing their job when there is a build-up of dirt, grease, dust and bacteria because these materials can create an insulating barrier. Your AC unit will run longer and work harder to cool your space. In addition to decline in efficiency and increased energy costs, this could result in a dramatically reduced life span of your air conditioning unit, not to mention health and safety issues should your facility be faced with an inspection.

Monthly cleaning may be required if the evaporator coils are prone to accumulating dirt and debris easily. Otherwise, we suggest cleaning it every three months or once a year during regularly scheduled preventive maintenance.
