Homeowners should never underestimate the importance of the coils. Keeping them clean can be one of the best ways to maximize the efficiency of your home comfort system. Regardless of the type of unit your home has, regular service and necessary upgrades not only increase comfort levels, but also will markedly reduce your energy bill.
Here are some ways to ensure that your A/C system stays healthy and operational:
- Dust and dirt will build up on coils over time and can cause problems if left unattended. It’s essential to regularly have both an indoor and outdoor coil cleaning professionally done. This insures that your A/C unit continues to operate at peak efficiency.
- Additionally, air filters should be replaced or cleaned at least twice a year. If you’re a cat or dog owner, you may need to do this more frequently due to pet hair and dander.
If you fail to keep the coils clean and dust and dirt do build up, the heat transfer in the condenser coil can become so blocked that it does not cool enough to convert the hot gas back to liquid form. When this occurs, the A/C unit continues to run, but does not cool. The result — the compressor will overheat and eventually fail. At Hobaica Services, we can help by providing a professional, thorough coil cleaning.
