The Importance of Coil Cleaning
Coil cleaning is an essential practice for any preventive maintenance (PM) program. Neglecting scheduled maintenance can significantly diminish your coil performance due to airflow restrictions and reduced heat transfer capabilities. Dirty coils can contribute to equipment breakdowns, increased energy consumption, and ultimately a shortened lifespan of your 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; this is known as tiger striping. At BFC Solutions, we recommend the cleaning of your coils and installing the PleatLink® to prevent fouling of the evaporator coil.
