Northwest Indiana Commercial AC Coil Cleaning
How often should Air Conditioner Condenser Coils be cleaned?
In most situations, the coils should be twice per year, but the frequency can increased depending on a few factors. Some factors that can require more frequent cleaning are:
Location of the coils
If the coils are located in an area where there are high levels of airborne pollutants or contaminants, they may need to be cleaned more frequently. Air conditioning coils in heavy industry facilities such as steel mills or refineries will need to be cleaned more frequently than coils in office spaces.
Amount of Use
Air conditioners that run for extended periods of time such as in facilities that operate second or third shifts will naturally attract more debris due to their higher load.
Age of the System
Older systems tend to require more frequent cleaning due to improper care over the life of the system. In addition to years of buildup, damage coiling fins can also lead to an increase in buildup in the condensing coils.
