  • There are two coils on your HVAC system: an evaporator coil (indoor coil) and condenser coil (outdoor coil)

    What Are Coils?  Both condenser and evaporator coils are main components of your heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system.  Condenser coils are located inside your condensing unit that sits outside your home and evaporator coils sit inside your indoor unit.  (Split systems) or both are inside the main unit if you have a package unit.

    Think of these coils as a radiator on your car, when it gets plugged with dirt and debris it overheats.  The same thought with your condenser and evaporator coils.  When the coils are dirty and have built up debris your HVAC system will run to hot.  Since there is a lot of air transfer needed for your unit, you want to make sure coils are as clean as possible. When your coils are clean, the fan can easily do its job.

    Dirty coils

    Dirty coils can cause a number of problems.

    • The energy-efficiency of the unit is going to drop significantly.
    • The HVAC unit will not last as long as it normally would when you have dirty coils. Manufacturers are under the assumption that you are going to do preventive maintenance on your system, which includes cleaning these coils.
    • The efficiency that your system is going to cool will drop by more than 30% when you have dirty coils. It doesn’t take much dirt to reduce the effectiveness of the unit.

    Performance Heating and Air Conditioning recommends having these coils inspected and cleaned at least once a year.  We will come out and clean these coils to enhance the performance of your unit, guarantee the manufacturer warranties by keeping records and help prolong the operation of your system.  Give us a call (916) 933-2683
