Cleaning a Dirty Air Conditioner Evaporator Coil

Today I take you along on a call where the homeowner was turning their air conditioner on but it was just not properly cooling the house. Almost immediately I thought there might be a problem with the coil that was impacting the air flow. Sure enough the problem we found was that the evaporator coil which can be difficult to get to (to the untrained eye) was caked with layers of dirt, hair and grime. If you have a weak stomach, fast forward to the end where we show our client what we pulled off of the coil.

Why does this happen?

A dirty evaporator coil is pretty common and it happens when you do not have your HVAC system properly maintained. That combined with not changing your air filters. You can easily prevent this type of repair by contacting us scheduling regular HVAC maintenance.
