The weather slowly warmed up, and more and more people began to turn on the central air conditioner again. However, after a spring without work, the central air conditioning system and its components will be covered with dust and dirt, which need to be cleaned before use. What problems should we consider more when cleaning the condenser?
The condenser coil is a heat exchanger. When the refrigerant is heated, it enters the condenser coil. The condenser coil cools the refrigerant, changing the refrigerant from gas to liquid. The heat discharged when the gas becomes liquid is then blown out of the air conditioning unit. When the condenser coil cools the refrigerant, the refrigerant flows back to the air conditioning system to cool the air in the home.
1. What happens when it stops working?
The first indication that the condenser coil is not working properly is that the air temperature in the air conditioning cycle is higher than that of the thermostat.
As the ability of the air conditioning system to keep the family cool decreases, and as the family temperature steadily increases, your comfort will also be affected. With the passage of time, the system becomes more and more inefficient, and the energy cost involved in maintaining higher and higher temperatures will increase.
In addition, if you ignore this problem, the life of your air conditioning unit will be greatly shortened.
2. How does dirty condenser become a problem?
One of the main problems in cleaning the central air conditioner is to ensure that the condenser coil is free of dust and debris.
Any dirt around the condenser means that the system emits less heat and will accumulate in the condenser, thus reducing its ability to cool the refrigerant. Therefore, the air temperature in your home will be higher than the temperature setting on the thermostat.
3. Maintenance of condenser coil
It is recommended that the condenser be cleaned regularly, which we can use as part of our annual service. The condenser coil cleaner can remove all debris around and inside the equipment.
