Coil Cleaning

Fact: Did you know that having HVAC coil cleaning performed yearly reduces energy consumption in most cases enough to pay for the cleaning cost in six months?

Fact: For every dollar spent cleaning coils accurately; there is an equal dollar in energy sav¬ings for each unit.

Fact: Disregarding condenser and evaporator coils can increase energy use of each unit by more than 15%?

Fact: You can save money by having Coils cleaned because it extends the operating life of each unit by downsizing the run time.

Fact: 4 out of 5 contractors tend to clean coils inaccurately.

Fact: Besides saving you money by reducing energy costs, SIMMCO INC customers have the advantage of equipment evaluations at each location.

What can be expected if coils are not kept clean?

  • Higher than necessary electric bills
  • Excessive and unneccessary repair bills
  • Premature component failure
  • Lack of humidity removal
  • Compressor failures
  • Loss of cooling capacity

Nowadays air conditioners are designed in such a way that they can operate within smaller tolerances than they did 20 years ago. The importance is now being placed on higher operating efficiencies (known as S.E.E.R. or E.E.R.), everybody wants an air conditioner that is able to carry out the maximum amount of work while providing the least amount of energy consumption.

Therefore, any field conditions that cause deviations from an optimum operation can have a detrimental effect on the performance and life of a unit. 

An investment in preventative maintenance will benefit you in reducing your electric bills, replacement and repair costs.

Your electricity bill gets affected if elements such as coils are dirty to an extent in which it causes the compressors and motors to produce more power in order to deliver cool air. The extra work load could be the potential cause to the failure of the motor or compressor.

If the coils are dirty they can cause constraints on the rest of the components in the refrigeration cycle. The compressor removes heat and humidity from the air by pumping refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. As air passes through the filter that is within the unit and is also cleaned. Airflow can get blocked if the coils are dirty, this in return causes the coils to malfunction and they cannot dissipate heat and eliminate humidity. This can cause “stress” on the compressors, as well as the system in itself.
