If you prioritize HVAC maintenance, you may already be familiar with your unit’s condenser coils. Condenser coils are an important outdoor component of your AC. They work to remove heat from your home on a regular basis, meaning, they also require regular maintenance. Add cleaning your coils to your maintenance routine to easily extend the life of your unit.
Firstly, inspect your unit for damage. If there are any notable damages, you’ll be better off leaving the task to the professionals to safely carry out any necessary repairs. If not, proceed with the following steps:
- Firstly, remove large debris with a brush.
- Inspect your coil fins. Coil fins can become bent over time due to weather and other outside movement. You can quickly bend coil fins back into place with a fin comb. They are also handy for removing smaller, hard to reach debris.
- Clean with a coil cleaner. Start by spraying down coils with a hose, then generously apply a coil cleaner. After about 10 minutes rinse it off.
