Residential home air conditioner cleaning is one of the most important maintenance procedures you can do for your home especially in Colorado.
Air conditioning systems consist of several components (see image below), most of which are hard to see and visually inspect. The primary culprits of contamination and inefficiency are the evaporator coil and condenser coil. Over time, these components become corroded with dust and dirt that greatly reduce the cooling capacity of an AC system. Monster Vac is one of the few companies that has the expertise and takes the time to clean the components. When shopping for an air duct cleaning company, it is critical to ask if the they clean the condenser coil and evaporator coil. Here’s why:
The condenser coil is located inside the cooling unit, which is located outside of the home. Over the winter months, blowing dirt and dust stick to the coils and acts as blanket, literally. This corrosion prevents the coils from reaching their optimum cooling capability as they are blanketed with dirt and dust. To learn more, please visit “Why Clean a Condenser Coil”
Inside the home, in the upper portion of the furnace cabinet sits the the evaporator coil. It looks like an a-frame that covers the main air flow from the blower to the air ducts. Imagine if this component is caked with years if circulating dust. It gets clogged, chokes off air flow and makes the coil freeze over. For more information, please visit “Why Clean Evaporator Coils”
