Maximizing the efficiency of your HVAC system makes sense with the rising costs of energy and its tight supply. Both condenser (outdoor) and evaporator (indoor) coils are engineered to provide optimum heat transfer required for the area needing cooling. The air being transferred, in most cases, contains a mixture of dust, dirt, pollen, grease and moisture. These contaminants settle on the surface of the coil and impact the ability to transfer heat. They also affect the quality of the air within your home or building. The cost of operating dirty air conditioning equipment is greater than you might expect!
Higher operating pressures caused by a dirty coil may reduce your equipment’s life expectancy. The restriction of heat transfer and strain placed on the compressor can lead to equipment failure. Compressor failure means no cooling. Compressor replacement cost is substantially more than a cleaning!
Kidder‘s trained Service Professionals will carefully check the fins of the condenser coil for damage, use gauges to take airflow measurements and temperature splits, and chemical clean outdoor coil with non-corrosive solution. Kidder will also clean and sanitize your heating/cooling evaporator coil (inside). Average cost to clean starts at $99 per coil.
NOTE: Do not judge the cleanliness of a coil by its visual appearance.
Air conditioning cooling coils provide moisture, cool temperature and food from dust; all which contribute to contamination growth which affects the cooling coil in the following ways:
A dirty evaporator coil creates an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and mold that can impact a home or building’s indoor air quality. Cleaning, sanitizing and protecting the evaporator coil, condensate pan and surrounding areas is critical.
