How to Clean Residential AC Coils

Air Conditioning Coil Maintenance in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas

When your AC is not functioning properly, it may be a result of dirt and debris getting trapped in the condenser and evaporator coils. The condenser coil is located in the condenser unit outside of the home, and the evaporator coil is typically inside mounted near the furnace. First, you must get the coils to a point where they are exposed, visible, and accessible. This typically involves removing an access panel, but each model is a little different.

There are a few different methods you can try when cleaning the coils of your AC system. First, you can clean the coils using compressed air. You can blow the dirt and debris off of the coils quickly and easily with compressed air, but you should have a shop-vac to clean the debris up with before the dust and allergens are within the home. Also, you should follow this up with a commercial cleaning solution.

There are commercial cleaners available that are specific to different types of air conditioners. Another method of cleaning the coils involves using a brush to remove the debris, and then following this with the use of commercial cleaners. Lastly, some people prefer to use a solution made with household detergent and water, rather than the high chemical cleaners.
