SEVERE WEATHER AND CONDENSER COILS – A BAD MATCH


Condenser coils are the most delicate components on air-cooled HVAC systems and one of the components most exposed to the elements. Severe weather, pollen, dust, dirt and debris can negatively impact your HVAC system and result in higher energy consumption and lower heating or cooling efficiency for your building.

Severe Weather Coil-Maintenance Tips

· Inspect condenser coils immediately following any severe weather to ensure the soft-metal fins protecting the coils have not been damaged by heavy rain, hail or debris.

· Comb damaged condenser-coil fins to straighten them and reclaim their ability to protect the condenser coils.

· Replace seriously damaged condenser-coil fins. This is far less costly than replacing a damaged or overworked compressor.

· Remove any wind-blown debris that has adhered to the condenser coils and may be reducing airflow through the coils.

· Install hail guards to help prevent damage to the condenser-coil fins.
