Springfield Air Conditioning Question: What Can Cause Problems with AC Coil Fins

When AC coil fins have problems, they can cause the efficiency of your Springfield air conditioner to drop drastically.  Identifying coil fin problems and resolving them is very important.

Aluminum or copper coil fins on the evaporator coils or condenser coils of an air conditioner tend to get easily bent.  When this happens it will block the air which flows through the coil itself, causing the entire AC system to not work properly.

Through normal use coil fins can also become clogged with dirt and debris, which also restricts air flow through the air conditioner making it work harder than necessary.  Overworking an AC results in cooling that is less effective and which will cost more, not to mention wearing out internal parts much more quickly.

With low air flow comes a drop in temperature, and this drop can result in AC coil fins that are frosted over with ice particles.  Ice build-up problems not only decrease air flow but can cause other AC problems to occur.

Air Conditioning Coil Fin Solutions

Whether there are bent coil fins, clogged fins, or frosted or icy AC coil fins, the result is the same: blocked air flow that causes the air conditioner to work harder than it should.  The easiest solution is through proper air conditioning maintenance with a company such as Cool It that can not only fix bent coil fins, but defrost the coils, and clean the coil fins during the AC maintenance inspection.
