Keeping an air conditioning unit well maintained increases the life and efficiency of the heating and air conditioning unit. That’s why commercial coil cleaning by Safety King should be near the top of every building’s maintenance list.
As air moves over the air conditioner coils, contaminants such as dirt, dust, mold spores, moisture and pollen collect. When this happens, the air conditioning coils become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold, threatening indoor air quality. If commercial coil cleaning is not performed, buildup on the air conditioning coils also creates an insulated effect, preventing the coil from absorbing heat and reducing air flow, resulting in greater energy consumption.
When the air conditioning coils become contaminated, the system has to work harder, using more energy to accomplish the required heat transfer. According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), the “HVAC system accounts for 40 to 60 percent of the energy used in US commercial and residential buildings.” Add in the fact that an air conditioning unit with dirty coils can use from 30 to 37 percent more energy than a unit with clean coils, the case is clear. Ensuring your HVAC system is maintained and functioning properly saves both energy and money.
Based on research conducted by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers, (ASHRAE), you can save from 10 to 25 percent of the average operation cost for up to 15 years of service life on your air conditioning unit, or from 25 to 55 percent after 15 years of operation by having air conditioner coil cleaning performed by Safety King.
