Maintaining your air conditioning system regularly is important when it comes to the temperature and air quality in your home. HVAC systems require annual maintenance in order to perform efficiently. While changing your air filters and inspecting air ducts are very important, homeowners tend to forget about the AC condenser unit and the coils attached.
Types of Air Conditioning Coils
There are two types of coils that your system has, evaporator and condenser coils. The coils are attached to the air conditioning unit located outside your home. Coils play a significant role in the functionality of your HVAC system. The purpose of these coils is to remove heat from your home and replace it with cool air. With the coils controlling the main source of air flowing through your home, dirt and debris can accumulate a lot quicker than other parts of your HVAC. To avoid any issues with the performance of your air conditioner, cleaning your coils should be considered during maintenance checks.
Keep Those Coils Clean Regularly
When coils aren’t cleaned properly, the dust and bacteria can affect the overall efficiency of your air conditioner and also disrupt the air quality in your home. Once that happens, this can cause issues to other parts of the HVAC system. You will notice your air conditioner working overtime in order to heat and cool your home. Inspecting and cleaning your vents and air ducts will also keep any dirt, dust, and debris at bay.
If you notice your coils still becoming clogged, consider scheduling for your HVAC technician to remove any dirt that you cannot physically reach with your vacuum cleaner. If you aren’t currently utilizing your programmable thermostat, now would be a great time to start. Programmable thermostats reduce the need for your air conditioner to work more than it needs to which will lessen build-up. Remember to change your air filters. Replacing your air filters can reduce multiple problems that may arise not only with the coils but other parts of your HVAC system.
