HOW TO CLEAN AN AC COIL
It is very important that you clean your air conditioner’s coil from time to time. I know some of you reading this now might be wondering why you need to clean your AC coil. Well just keep on reading because Air Conditioning Boca Raton will soon show you why it is very important that you clean your A/C coil regularly.
The air conditioner coil also called condenser coils helps to evacuate gas that results from the conversion and cooling operation of your air conditioner. This means that if the AC coil is dirty, the AC will use more energy to generate cool air.
So that’s basically the reason why you need to clean your A/C coil from time to time because in doing so, not only will your AC run smoothly, but will also prolong the life span of your air conditioner.
Now that we know why it is important for us to always clean our air conditioner coil from time to time, let’s move on to how you can clean your AC coil yourself. Yeah you can actually clean your A/C coil yourself and Air Conditioning Boca Raton will show you how it is done.
Step 1 is the most important step, so please pay close attention to this very step. Disconnect your air conditioner from the power source. Make sure you pull out the plug completely from the power source, because most persons will just power off the AC and the socket the AC is connected to. So make sure you totally disconnect the air conditioner fro the power source.
Now get your screw drivers and all the needed equipment and detach the outer casing of your cooling unit. Please make sure you do this carefully and patiently. Also ensure that you open the unit from the top.
Once you have successfully opened up the AC unit, clean and clean the AC fan blades and its shaft. You can use a rag or vacuum cleaner to do the cleaning. When you are done cleaning, lubricate the motor of the AC fan.
Now clean off the dirt on the surface of the air conditioner coil with a brush or even a broom. Now use a vacuum cleaner to remove hidden dirt in between the coil. It is also better if you use a spray cleaner for the cleaning of the hidden dirt. But make sure you cover all naked wires will a plastic bag when using the spray cleaner, so that water won’t come in contact with the naked wires.
Rinse off the foams of the spray cleaner from the coil and inspect it if it is clean enough. If it is not clean enough repeat step 4. But if it is clean enough, gently place everything back into the casing and screw it tightly as it was before you opened.
Well ladies and gentlemen, that’s how to clean the coils of your air conditioner yourself.
