A heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) coil is an integral part of any air conditioning or heating system. A well functioning AC unit relies on clean HVAC coils to ensure proper air flow. Here’s a look at why you should care about keeping these coils clean!
AC condensers are often placed on roofs or sides of buildings, where they are exposed to rain, debris, and other sorts of physical pollution. This puts a heavy strain on the HVAC equipment as it tries to clean the air that’s going through the system, and can even result in failure of important mechanical parts, which will cost time and money to fix. The cost of one brand new compressor would cover the cost of cleaning an HVAC coil for five years.
Clean coils are crucial in maintaining efficient energy usage and high air quality. Dirty HVAC systems will not function at their ideal capacity, and can result in excess dirt entering your house and lowering the air quality. Even with the protection of an air filter, a dirty coil can introduce micro pollutants and biocontaminants to the air, as well as any other particles that are small enough to get through the air filter. This becomes a greater problem if you have pollen or mould spore allergies. Avoid these hazards and keep the air quality of your home or office high by ensuring clean HVAC coils.
One of the most effective ways to reduce your air conditioning bill is to ensure that the HVAC coils in your AC unit are clean and running at max efficiency. A clean unit can reduce energy costs by up to 30% just through yearly cleanings. The need for emergency service calls to fix malfunctioning or stalled units is also reduced, further saving you unnecessary costs. Dirty coils also reduce the effectiveness of air conditioning units, as they are forced to work harder to compensate. The added stress and heat caused by the mechanical parts will reduce the amount of cooling that the unit can provide, and will run you a higher energy bill as a result.
Calgarians are used to enduring long cold winters, but we still appreciate air conditioning for those hot dry summer days. Make sure you’re getting the most out of your AC unit by keeping your HVAC coils clean.
