Air conditioners contain many different parts, all of which complete a specific job as they work together to cool your home or business. Air conditioner coils are one of the more important parts of an AC, requiring maintenance to continue running properly. Let’s break down what AC coils are, why they’re important, and how to take care of them.
Since filthy air conditioner coils can choke the system, you need to keep them clean. Plus, dirt and grime will make heat transfer harder on your system. This forces the system to work harder than it needs to, which can lead to breakdowns and other problems. It won’t reach the temperature that you set it to, which is of course another problem. The evaporator and condenser coils need to be maintained. That way, you can prevent other associated issues such as energy waste, mechanical failures, and refrigerant leaks. Refrigerant leaks also impact the system’s ability to provide cooling. In the sweltering heat of summer, you don’t want that to happen. So what can you do about it? Make sure to schedule routine maintenance.
The Importance of Routine Cleaning
Routine cleaning is extremely important. Getting rid of mold and other types of allergens will improve indoor air quality. Although your building may be closed right now due to social distancing, it also means there is time to make the atmosphere more suitable for your employees before they all come back into the building. Evaporator coils need to be cleaned just as often as the AC coils. Since each unit is different, getting a consultation and inspection beforehand will also make a tremendous difference.
Reasons to Get Some Professional Help
Commercial HVAC systems are very complicated. They may need more maintenance than a residential unit will. Without proper cleaning and maintenance, the coils could end up damaged. That alone makes it one of the most important reasons to get some professional help in this regard. Plus, some disassembly may be necessary, and that goes beyond the scope of what the average commercial building operator would know how to do it.
