We removed and chemically cleaned impacted blower wheels, and an an evaporator coil on a Carrier kitchen A/C unit at Coopers Hawk in Pembroke Pines.
Plugged coils and blower wheels in commercial HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) units can lead to a range of issues and should be addressed promptly to maintain optimal system performance. When the coil is blocked by dust, debris, or dirt, it hinders the heat exchange process, reducing the unit’s cooling or heating efficiency. This inefficiency often results in higher energy consumption and increased operating costs. Additionally, a blocked coil can lead to overheating of the system, potentially causing damage and costly repairs.
Similarly, clogged blower wheels can impede the flow of air through the HVAC system, reducing its ability to circulate conditioned air throughout the commercial space. This can result in uneven temperature distribution, discomfort for occupants, and longer runtime for the system to achieve desired indoor conditions.
In extreme cases, it may even lead to system breakdowns. To mitigate these issues, routine maintenance and cleaning of both the coils and blower wheels are essential.
Regular maintenance can improve energy efficiency, extend the lifespan of the HVAC unit, and ensure a comfortable and healthy indoor environment for both customers and employees in a commercial setting.–
