All AC systems lose efficiency over time due to the accumulation of dirt and debris; hence, the system becomes less effective at moving air and cooling your home. This means your AC unit will use far more energy to work properly, which will cost you more money. Because we are in Florida and the air conditioner is used regularly to beat the heat and humidity, AC units tend to get dirtier more often than in other places.
We are always here to promptly attend to your service needs. Please do not hesitate to call.
Most AC systems consist of an outdoor condenser and an indoor evaporator. Both units can get dirty, so they should both be inspected during an AC cleaning service. Our technicians will start at the condenser coil. They’ll open the unit and pick out leaves, sticks, and other debris that might have fallen into the unit. Then they’ll clean the condenser coil with a special cleaning solution making sure there are no blockages that are reducing efficiency. Once they’re finished outside, our technicians will go indoors and unclog the air handler filter and use professional tools to access and clean your home’s evaporator coil.
The general recommendation is that you have your AC unit cleaned every 2 to 5 years. As a Florida homeowner, your AC system is likely being used frequently and will need inspections more often than units used in cooler climates, therefore, the time in between cleanings may be better off every year to 3 years. If you notice water leaking from your AC coils, this is a good indicator that you may need a cleaning immediately to prevent future mechanical failure.
When Should You Get A Ductless Mini Split AC Coils Cleaned?
Mini split AC coils should be cleaned at least once per year, depending on how often you use the AC unit. Ductless air conditioner units are smaller and will get clogged much faster than a larger AC unit, thus needing maintenance more often.
On average, it costs between $100 and $300 to clean your mini split coils. Reach out to Service America for recommendations and quotes. We can help you determine how often your ductless AC system needs cleaning and help you set up a budget-friendly maintenance schedule.
