Keeping an air conditioning unit well maintained increases the life and efficiency of the heating and air conditioning unit. Air conditioner coil cleaning should be near the top of every building’s maintenance list.
As air moves over the air conditioner coils, contaminants such as dirt, dust, mold spores, moisture and pollen collect. When this happens, the air conditioning coils become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold, threatening indoor air quality. If air conditioner coil cleaning is not performed, buildup on the air conditioning coils also creates an insulated effect, preventing the coil from absorbing heat and reducing air flow, resulting in greater energy consumption.
