In addition to delivering excellent customer service, we also aim to educate our customers on best practices to help them keep their homes’ energy efficiency. Keeping your HVAC system clean is key to lower energy bills and equipment longevity. One of the most important components you should have cleaned regularly is your evaporator coil. The following symptoms suggest you may have a dirty coil.
Your Air Conditioner Runs, But It Doesn’t Cool
It’s summertime. The temperature inside your home is on the rise. You turn on your faithful, hardworking air conditioner. Thirty minutes pass, and you realize your home has not cooled down to a comfortable temperature. A dirty coil may be the culprit.
If your air conditioner no longer cools as well as it used to, our technicians may recommend the following services:
- Coil cleaning
- Air filter cleaning/replacement
- Duct cleaning
A clean HVAC system is an efficient HVAC system. When dust inevitably accumulates on your evaporator coil, the coil becomes less effective at removing heat from the air before the warm air circulates into your home.
Higher Energy Bill
When a dirty evaporator coil causes your system to work less effectively, your system consumes more energy to meet the heating and cooling demands of your household. By keeping your evaporator coil clean, you will also keep your energy consumption and resulting utility bills manageable.
Avoid Mechanical Breakdowns
Ultimately, an unclean coil can lead to freezing and mechanical breakdowns. A coil may freeze when buildup prevents the coil from pulling heat from the air. Condensation accumulates as a result.
If you experience coil freezing or a potential problem with your HVAC system, our technicians are available for:
- HVAC repair
- HVAC replacement
- Heating and air tune-ups
- Routine HVAC maintenance
- Indoor air quality services
