Servicing South East Queensland
We demonstrate Type 1 (HEPA Vacuuming) and Type 2 (pressure washing) cooling coil cleaning methods onsite to provide the most thorough clean without cross contaminating already clean system components are building areas.
Over time the internal and external surfaces of coils (condenser and cooling) in HVAC systems can have a heavy build up of dust, dirt, pollen, moisture and other contaminants. The heavier the build up on such contaminants it also decreases the available surface area for heat transfer. The less heat transfer also reduces the efficiency of the heat transfer process which can lead to poor system performance, decreased longevity and excessive energy consumption. It is important that air condition coils are regularly inspected and maintained to ensure they operate at optimum efficiency.
In addition to energy efficiency and system performance benefits, regular coil cleaning also vastly improves indoor air quality, something which gets overlooked. This is a fact that has led to regular coil cleaning becoming a regulatory requirement in certain circumstances.
There are a number of ways to clean coils, such as dry vacuuming using a brush head attachment to dislodge any debris stuck between the coils, but the most effective way to clean coils is to use a high pressured water machine (i.e gernie), and using a coil cleaning chemical, that helps to promote the dislodgment of debris and removing the fine film of mould or dust that sits on the surfaces of the fins and coils.
According to the US department of Energy (DOE) a dirty condenser coil can increase condenser energy consumption by 30%.
Regular cooling coil cleaning has many benefits — both financially and for your health. It can:
