Got Pollen? It’s Time to Clean Those Condenser Coils.

 

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, the signs of spring are likely to make you cringe rather than rejoice.  With the warm weather and blooming flowers comes pollen, pollen, and more pollen.  Your eyes are itchy, you’re congested, your nose is running, and your efficiency may suffer.

Your HVAC system feels your pain.

Along with wreaking havoc on your respiratory system, all that pollen is also finding its way into your building’s ventilation system.  It’s clogging your condenser coils and becoming an even bigger nuisance, one that no amount of Claritin or Zyrtec can cure.

Clogged or dirty condenser coils result in higher electric bills.  When coils are covered in pollen and dirt, your cooling system uses 30% more energy, according to a Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) study.  In fact, studies have shown that unmaintained condenser coils can decrease overall efficiency by 5% within 15 years.

That’s not good.

Just as you proactively take your anti-histamine when you leave the house each morning, preventative maintenance is the key to keeping your HVAC system in good shape this spring.  By having your condenser coils cleaned now, you’ll be less likely to have issues with your cooling system this summer.
