The Function of Condenser Coils and Why Cleaning is RequiredAugust 15th, 2016
Blog: Powered cooling units function as climate controllers, by dropping the ambient temperature below freezing point through a heat exchange mechanism. Condenser coils cast heat out while simultaneously converting the gaseous refrigerant back into its liquid form.
A network of thin metal tubing fits within sight of a heat expelling vent, or there is a fan-assisted component to push the hot air away, but the coil is also an essential part of the cooling cycle. While addressing the thermal component, it’s also interacting with the refrigerant. The system expanded gas is looping around and heading directly into the condenser coils, which is where it returns to its liquid state to repeat the whole process.
When Condensers Become Dirty
In order to optimise the thermal swapping aptitude of the coil, it’s manufactured from copper or another highly conductive metal. Dirt clings easily to the radiator-like profile, and this build up can often go unnoticed. The knock-on effect of this choking accumulation of dirt is poor thermal conductivity. Heat does not efficiently escape, so the system overheats. The lifespan of the equipment is shortened and energy bills soar as the gear struggles.
Dirty components within an air-driven cooling system represent a risk to hygiene. Likewise, energy bills can be reduced by keeping the coils and condenser grill clean, so that the blown air is free of dirt.
Coolclean’s AerisGuard hygiene treatment not only cleans coil units, but provides ongoing protection from biofilm, mould, bacteria and airborne contaminants.
Coolclean is an Accredited Applicator of AerisGuard treatment in Victoria, including Melbourne and surrounding suburbs. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
