Your air conditioner is one of the most expensive components in your home or business. Protect this investment with routine cleaning services from Pure Air Inc LV. Air conditioners are not easy to clean. The fins on condenser fans are fragile and can easily bend or even break if the wrong kind of equipment is used on them. Coils might be located behind sheet metal that should only be removed and put back by a trained technician. There is a lot involved in properly cleaning an air conditioner, which requires getting inside the unit.
Why Hire a Professional Cleaning Service for Air Conditioning?
Cleaning an air conditioner’s key parts—the coils and fan—involves working on internal electrical and mechanical parts that requires specialized training and tools. Angie’s List cautions homeowners not to leave air conditioning coil cleaning “to chance” and recommends professional servicing and cleaning each year. Annual cleaning services from professionally-trained services like Air Pure Inc LV includes pressure-washing, cleaning coils with chemical foam or detergents recommended by manufacturers, and a special vacuum tool that reaches tight spots.
Air Pure Inc LV wants our customers to get the most out of their investment when it comes to their air conditioners. For this reason, we recommend cleaning air ducts and air conditioners at the same time. Ideally, you want your ductwork and air conditioning to work together to ensure that the cleanest air possible is circulating around your home or office. Air that travels through ducts clogged with dust and debris will inevitably pick up some of it and bring it into the building. This compromises indoor air quality and can trigger allergies and other breathing problems.
Steps to Keep Air Conditioners Clean
Regular home maintenance for condenser coils includes clearing of debris like leaves, grass, and bird nests that can clog up the grill and even get inside the unit. Trim bushes near the condenser so that they don’t grow too close to the grill, and pull weeds growing around it. Check the mounting bolts and tighten any that have loosened.
It’s also very important to change the return air filters each month during the hottest months when the air conditioner is running more or less continuously, and after a dust storm or high winds. Units that have been exposed to deep freezes during winter can get frost build-up. If this has happened, turn on the fan to let it melt the ice. If it doesn’t come on, call for service before a serious problems takes root. Remember to turn off the power switch to the unit before doing any maintenance on or around it. The power switch is located in a box near the unit itself.
Our trained HVAC technicians have the equipment, tools and expertise to properly clean all parts, including the blower fan, primary drain pan, furnace cabinet and plenums. We use the SpeedClean® CoilJet®, a specialized tool that combines water pressure, coil cleaner, and water to remove scale deposits, dust, debris, and organic growth. It’s specifically designed to quickly and thoroughly clean condenser fins.
