Dirt, dust, debris, and other pollutants from your condenser coil will compromise your indoor air quality.
Regularly cleaning your condenser coils will remove dirt, dust, and other impurities. This will help your AC unit to transfer heat from inside your home to the outside. On the other hand, Dirty condenser coils insulate the coils from the surrounding air, reducing the efficiency of heat transfer. Reduced heat transfer can cause your evaporator coils to freeze and form ice and frost. This will prevent your AC unit from cooling your home effectively. Regularly maintaining your unit and cleaning your condenser coils will increase the life of your HVAC unit, as any rising problems will be taken care of earlier on before it becomes an expensive repair. It is essential to check your air filters monthly and replace it when it becomes dirty and clogged. When your air filter is dirty, the dirt and debris will accumulate on the evaporator coil instead of the air filter. Dirt, dust, debris, and other pollutants from your condenser coil will compromise your indoor air quality. This dirt build-up reduces airflow in the system causing your unit to work extra hard to get and supply air to your home. You can help keep the condenser coils clean by clearing tall grass, plants, and hanging trees. It is best to leave delicate cleaning of the condenser coils to a professional HVAC unit contractor to clean the system during routine system maintenance. Between visits from HVAC professionals, you can switch power to the unit and then clean your condenser coils by rinsing your coils with a hose and by removing large debris around them.
