Water Solutions: The Importance of Maintaining HVAC Coils
HVAC systems work tirelessly to heat, cool, and clean the air we breathe. But too often, critical components fail to receive regular maintenance, and the consequences are costly.
Over time, condenser, evaporator, and air handler coils accumulate dirt, grease, and bacteria from the air and environment. Without proper cleaning, this buildup compromises efficiency and effective operation.
When a unit struggles to cool air effectively, it runs overtime, shortening the overall life-span of the equipment while racking up high energy bills. In fact, according to The U.S. Department of Energy, a dirty condenser coil can increase compressor energy consumption by 30%.
More than just a burden to your budget, dirty evaporator or air handler coils can lead to bad air quality. When the coils are dirty and working poorly, the air becomes more damp and humid. Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency, humidity above 60% can lead to mold and mildew growth, a danger to human health and immune systems.
So, how do you clean your HVAC system coils safely and effectively? Because improper coil cleaning can actually damage a unit, it’s best to leave this job to the professionals. Chem-Aqua uses specific water pressure and water volume combined with a non-acid based cleaning solution, ensuring that coils are safely cleaned and enhanced.
