Cleaning the Evaporator Coils

Gaining access to the evaporator coil is not nearly as easy as the condenser coils. If you have an access panel to the evaporator, this is great. Here is the main reason I suggest the self cleaning coil cleaners. You can just spray the evaporator with this mix and it will use the condensation created during use to wash away the cleaner. If you can reach up under the coil, this is even better. If you have pets, you may be able to gently pull out hair that may have gotten in here prior to spraying the coil with your cleaner.

I only feel right to mention that the evaporator is typically removed to be cleaned thoroughly but that is not something you can do yourself. Not only are there many costly specialty tools involved, this is illegal without the proper licensing and can be very unsafe. Our method here for cleaning the evaporator is a "better than nothing" approach but does make a difference if you can gain access to the coil.

Using a good filter and keeping your ducts clean will help to keep the evaporator clean as well. Implement these habits and cleaning your coil won't be needed nearly as often.

Every Little Bit Counts            

I know there is a lot here in this hub but when it comes to air conditioning coils, well, there's a lot to cover. Even if you just end up taking the top off the unit and spraying it down with the hose, you'll be making a difference in how long your A/C lasts and how well it runs. This, along with other household maintenance chores, can help save you money on both repairs and utilities.

As always, if you run into a situation that is not as described in this hub or aren't confident in what you're doing, never make assumptions with these types of appliances. Call a professional.

I hope this was helpful and I appreciate any feedback you may have to offer on these instructions.
