Why Cleaning Your Evaporator Coil is Important
Let’s face it, air conditioners in the summer are constantly running in Michigan. The constant use of your AC is why cleaning your evaporator coil is important. Inside your HVAC unit, there is an evaporator coil that helps to absorb the warm air indoors and transfers it to the outside thru more condensed coil in the outside unit. Due to dirt, debris, and other pollutants continuously passing through the coils, they can become trapped. Over time, this build up on the coil can impact the functionality of your unit. Having your e-coil professionally cleaned once or twice a year will preserve the life of your air conditioner and prevent costly repairs in the future.
The Repercussion of Skipping Evaporator Coil Cleanings
Keeping up with a routine HVAC maintenance is key to a healthy system. As a general rule of thumb, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends air duct cleaning every 3 to 5 years. An air duct cleaning should also include that evaporator coil cleaning as well. When the coil is dirty, clogged, or not functioning properly, your AC has to work even harder to produce the same effects. Not cleaning your coils can result in:
Higher energy bills
AC unable to cool the whole room
The transition box being torn apart from pressure caused by clogs
A broken AC unit
Michigan summers can be unpredictable. One day it can get as high as 100 degrees and the next it’s basically winter all over again. This can put a lot of wear and tear on your system. Skipping a coil cleaning will affect your energy bills and also possibly require you to replace it sooner than you should have to.
