A dirty evaporator coil can cause many problems in the home or building and should be cleaned periodically to minimize air flow problems, allergens, and ensure system efficiency.
Evaporator coils in homes are located on the top of the furnace and are tricky to access. Because of this, evaporator coils are seldom cleaned in normal preventative maintenance programs. Failure to clean the evaporator coil can result in damage to the coil and potential costly repairs (see below).
The Evaporator coil is located in the airstream of your HVAC equipment and 100% of the air that heats or cools your home must travel through this Evaporator Coil. This means that a dirty Evaporator coil affects your cooling and your heating system.
A dirty evaporator coil can greatly diminish cooling efficiency, and make it appear as if you need a new air conditioning unit. It can restrict air flow forcing your system to run longer and more frequently and making it difficult to heat or cool your home. This translates into higher, and often wasted, energy dollars.
Evaporator coils produce condensation, and when added to caked-on dust and dirt, it creates the perfect environment for mold and mildew to live. These contaminants are unhealthy in homes, office buildings, schools and commercial buildings.
