Evaporator coils cleaning is needed for your home if you don’t have the room to properly maintain the coils. This type of cleaning usually takes place at least once a year. It’s important to know how to properly clean them because if they are not cleaned regularly, the water will soak through the motor and cause you some serious problems. By following the steps in this article, you will be able to keep your motor and coils in good working order.
The first thing you will need to do is determine which coil you are working on, this can be done with the help of a hose. You will then need to get the hose between the evaporator coils and the metal surrounding it. Next, apply water to the coil and try to reach the ends of the coils. Make sure that you fill the spaces between the coils completely so that the water from the hose cannot seep underneath the coil. Once the water has completely filled the space, use a scrub brush and pull it back out. Once this is done, dry the coil with a towel.
You can continue by letting the coil sit for a few minutes in the air dryer. You may need to repeat this a few times but it should dry very quickly. If you feel that it is necessary, you can soak the coil in warm water for a few minutes but the key is to keep it dry. A clean coil is going to save you money in the long run because it will keep your furnace running more efficiently. Follow these steps and you will be able to remove the build up that is found on your evaporator coils in no time.
