3 Reasons to Call for Duct Cleaning in Mesa, AZ

Check out a few of the reasons why you should consider calling for duct cleaning in Mesa, AZ.

  • Improved air quality – The average person spends about 90% of our time indoors which means that if you’re home’s air is full of pollutants it can cause some issues for your respiratory health. Your ductwork is one of the places where contaminants like dust, pollen, pet dander, insect droppings, cleaning fumes, smoke and gas fuel can gather. By cleaning them out on a regular basis you could remove them from circulation and improve the quality of air that you breathe in your home.
  • Increased efficiency – In some cases, the build-up of contaminants in your ducts can get so bad that it will restrict the flow of air through your system which will reduce its efficiency. By cleaning out those contaminants you could improve the efficiency of your system.
  • Protect Your AC equipment – If your home’s air is filled with contaminants those can start to accumulate throughout your air conditioning system and collect on important parts like the fan motor and evaporator coils. If those components get dirty it can have a negative effect on the operation of your equipment. Dirty coils can cause a reduction of efficiency and cooling and a dirty fan motor can cause it to break down and require repair.

If you’ve never had your ducts cleaned or if you suspect that your home suffers from poor indoor air quality call the experts at Goettl Good Guys for duct cleaning in Mesa, AZ.

Why Dirty Coils Are a Problem For Your Home

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Your air conditioning system has one job: remove heat from your home and exhaust it outside. Two of the most critical components of its ability to do this are the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. Here at Goettle Good Guys, we offer AC repair in Scottsdale for all different types of systems and we wanted to share a little bit about why keeping those coils clean is so important.

Common AC Repair in Scottsdale: Dirty Coils

In order to understand why dirty coils are such a problem for your AC, you need to know a little bit about how they work.

Central air conditioners typically are comprised of two separate units: an indoor evaporator unit and the outdoor condensing unit. A fan in the indoor unit pulls in warm air from your home and passes it over the very cold evaporator coils which are filled with a refrigerant that absorbs the heat out of the air. The newly-cooled air then continues on into your home. The refrigerant is circulated outside carrying the heat from your home which gets exhausted at the condensing coils.

If either set of coils, the evaporator coils or the condensing coils, get dirty it can cause big problems for your home’s efficiency and comfort.

Here are a couple of problems that can arise from dirty coils:

  • Not enough cooling – If the evaporator coils get covered in dirty or dust it can keep them from successfully absorbing enough heat from your home’s air. This means that the air moving into your home won’t be cool enough and your home won’t be comfortable.
  • Inefficiency – Also, if the evaporator coils are dirty it will make your air conditioner have to work harder to cool your home which reduces its efficiency.
  • Constant running – If your air conditioning system won’t stop running it could be because the outdoor condensing coils are dirty. This happens because the system isn’t able to exhaust any of the heat that it is absorbing out of your home. This is a huge problem because this will cause your system to experience more wear and tear which could lead to more repairs. It will also likely reduce the comfort of your home because you won’t be able to get rid of any heat from your home.
