The Importance of Coil Cleaning
Coil cleaning is an essential practice for any preventive maintenance (PM) program. Neglecting scheduled maintenance can significantly diminish coil performance due to airflow restrictions and reduced heat transfer capabilities. Dirty coils contribute to equipment breakdowns, increased energy consumption, and ultimately a shortened lifespan of the HVAC unit. The before image below shows how dirt accumulates on evaporator coils when conventional box filters are used. Gaps on all sides of the filters allow dirty air to bypass the filter resulting in stripes of dust and dirt on the evaporator coil known as tiger striping. Bonded Filter Co. (BFC) recommends the cleaning of your coils and installing the PleatLink® to prevent fouling of the evaporator coil.
