Are you giving your condenser coils enough attention and care? You should be! They may be located outside, but they are of the same importance as your A/C’s indoor components. If you still doubt the benefits of clean condenser coils, here are the things that you should know: If you have a dirty condenser coil, expect that you will be experiencing any or all of these problems:
- Burn Money on Electric Bills- Dirt accumulation in the coils reduces your system’s efficiency. For an average operation, your A/C uses 30% more energy than it needs and it can make a big difference in your electric bill.
- Reduced Comfort- Aside from giving you a financial headache, dirty condenser coils also make your home an uncomfortable place to stay. Since the main function of these coils is to release heat outside so that the refrigerants can cool down, expect that it will be less efficient in its function when it is surrounded by dirt and dust. So what comes next? You will not have enough cooling inside your home.
- More Prone to System Breakdown- Air conditioning units are great investments, and everyone wants to get the most of it. Dirty condenser coils, however, hinder the proper operation of your unit, so it takes long hours to cool your home. This can result in increased wearing and tearing of the components of your system. With this, you will be at risk of system failure and break down any time in the long hot summer days.
- Early System Replacement- Negligence of A/C condenser coil cleaning can ruin your compressor. We all know that this is a serious problem to deal with. Most of the time, homeowners with this kind of problem are left with no choice but to have their A/C replaced long before its estimated lifespan. Even if repairing is still recommended, you still need to spend big time on the service. All these can be prevented by taking the initiative to clean your coils.
