Dirty condenser coils can be an air conditioning system’s worst enemy. They can prevent your system from operating at peak performance which can drive up energy bills and leave you with an empty wallet or bank account. So how can you keep them clean and keep your air conditioner running efficiently?
Most air conditioner condensers are located outside the home, so it’s easy for leaves, dirt and grass to get into the coils. The first step to a cleaner, more efficient condenser is to keep grass and shrubs away. Make sure there is enough space around the entire unit so airflow is not restricted in any way.
Once you remove the obstructions, it’s time to break out the garden hose. Simply wash down the unit to keep dirt off of the coils. If you can access the fins, use a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris. Keeping the condenser clean is a great way to make sure your system is running efficiently.
