Clean Coils & Your AC Unit


One of the most important things you can do to ensure your air conditioning
unit is functioning properly is to make sure that the coils in your system
are clean. A leader in air conditioning sales and services, Del-Air offers
a variety of services to keep your family cool and your system functioning
for the long haul all while helping you to avoid AC repair.

How AC Coils Work

Your AC system has two kinds of coils. The evaporator coils are inside
your home. Air flows across these coils to cool and dehumidify the air
inside your home. The condensing coils are outside your home. These coils
are filled with a refrigerant that transforms back and forth between a
gas and a liquid to transfer the heat in your home to the outside air.

How Coils Become Dirty

Both the evaporator and condenser coils have a tendency to attract dirt
and debris. This is primarily because their surfaces are almost always
damp from water condensation. As a result, coils need to be cleaned regularly.

How to Keep Your AC Coils Clean

In many cases, AC coils can be cleaned of dirt and debris using compressed
air. Simply blow air across the coil in the opposite direction that air
flows, moving from the cleaner side to the dirtier one. Depending on the
amount of dirt, you might want to use a no-rinse spray foam cleaner. In
general, cleaning the coils inside and outside your home is not an easy
job. That’s why it’s best left to a professional like the
ones at Del-Air.
