Summer is known for days at the pool, family trips, and enjoying the warm temperatures. Unfortunately, the summer sun isn’t so fun if your A/C isn’t functioning properly. Did your A/C work well this summer? If you noticed higher utility bills or decreased cooling efficiency, your A/C coil may need to be cleaned. 

As a professional air duct cleaner in Colorado Springs, we understand the importance of your A/C functioning properly because your air ducts and air conditioning system go hand-in-hand. This is why we offer A/C coil cleaning services to ensure your runs efficiently and your space is comfortable.

Air Conditioning Coils

Central air conditioners are often made up of both an indoor and outdoor unit. The indoor unit has an evaporator coil that is meant to remove heat from indoor air, while the outdoor unit has a condenser coil that releases the captured heat outside. These coils are essential for a properly functioning A/C system, which is why it’s so important to keep them clean.

If A/C coils aren’t uncleaned often enough, the dirt and debris will build up, causing more wear on your system. This, in turn, can shorten the lifespan of your air conditioner, leading to the need for repairs or a complete replacement. 

Thankfully, there are signs you can look out for to know when your A/C coils are due for a cleaning.

Signs Your A/C Coils Are Dirty

  • Expensive utility bills – The dirt and debris covering your coils inhibits their ability to cool efficiently, leading to increased cooling costs.
  • Overheating – When your A/C coils are dirty, the dirt buildup will cause the coils to overheat.
  • A/C is less efficient – Because the coils are covered in dirt and dust, they can’t cool as quickly as normal, so you will begin to notice your A/C doesn’t cool well through your space.

How Often Should You Clean A/C Coils?

In order to maintain an optimal air conditioning system, your A/C coils need to remain clean. How often they need to be cleaned will depend on things like how often you run your system, how much dirt is in your home, and how often you change your filter. Granted, this will vary for every household, so a good rule of thumb is to clean your A/C coils at least once a year. This annual maintenance will ensure that your A/C coils don’t get so much dirt, dust, and debris buildup that you start to experience issues with inefficient cooling.
