Air Conditioner Coil Maintenance

Cleaning your air conditioner’s condenser coils and evaporator coils regularly allows your unit to run more efficiently and can make your home feel more comfortable.

Take care of your air conditioner coils for best cooling performance

Your AC coils are a big part of making sure your home stays cool on hot days. In a traditional split-system HVAC device, you’ll have an indoor and outdoor unit each containing one coil. Within the indoor unit of the system you have the evaporator coil, responsible for absorbing heat and humidity from your home. Within the outdoor unit of the system you have the condenser coil, responsible for releasing that heat and humidity outside, so it doesn’t get stuck in the air conditioner or your home.

The two coils form one continuous loop and, without them, heat and humidity would never escape your home, which could make it uncomfortably warm when you want it to be cool. Because the coils are such an important part of the air conditioner, keeping AC coils clean is crucial. While AC coil maintenance is dangerous and should only be handled by a licensed HVAC technician, there are a few safe tips and tricks you can perform yourself to make sure your coils stay in tip-top shape.
