Most people think of coil cleaning as a building or facility prepares to turn on the air-conditioners for another season. Admittedly, spring is a perfect time to put such cleaning and maintenance at the top of the to-do list. Condenser and evaporator coils are an integral part of HVAC systems, and one of the quickest and safest ways to maintain them is through a comprehensive coil-cleaning program. Even the best, most expensive system will not reach its optimum performance without proper maintenance, and a building’s heating and cooling systems account for 60 to 70 percent of its total energy use.
But, HVAC systems are not the only cooling coils that benefit from regular maintenance. Process cooling equipment like blast chillers and refrigeration equipment greatly benefit from scheduled maintenance to maintain peak efficiency. It is certainly not an area to cut corners.
