Coil Cleaning and Combing

Here are 3 reasons why cleaning AC coils is important.

Ensures optimum performance

Your HVAC is a complex machine that is composed of several parts. Your condenser coil is one of them. If it doesn’t work well, then the whole system will be affected.

Residue can impede the efficiency of your HVAC. Take a look at your outdoor unit from time to time. Clean the outdoor unit and make sure that the surrounding areas are clear.


Most Facilities aren’t in the habit of cleaning their AHU unit. But you need to keep in mind that the condenser coils are a part of the outdoor unit. Not cleaning the condenser coil impacts the performance of your HVAC. Heat gets trapped inside and can’t be effectively released when it is covered with dirt and debris. This will lead to inefficient cooling and increased energy consumption.

It is important to have your HVAC cleaned regularly. Cleaning your HVAC condenser coil should be a part of it. The more efficient your HVAC is, the more comfortable your indoor environment will be.

Your AC will live longer

Condenser coils are constantly subjected to dirt, leaves, dust, and bugs.

Remember, regular maintenance is the best way to maximize the life of your air conditioner. Failure to clean your HVAC coils drives up your energy bills.

Coil Fins

The aluminium fins on evaporator and condenser coils are easily bent and can block airflow through the coil. We use a tool called a "fin comb" that will comb these fins back into nearly original condition.


The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system's efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil's heat-absorbing capacity. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

For central air conditioners, filters are generally located somewhere along the return duct's length. Common filter locations are in walls, ceilings, and in the AHU.

Some types of filters are reusable; others must be replaced. They are available in a variety of types and efficiencies. Clean or replace your air conditioning system's filter or filters every month or two during the cooling season. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty conditions.
