Why NOT to Clean HVAC Coils With a Pressure Washer

We all want power, but can too much of it ever be a bad thing? When it comes to cleaning HVAC coils, the answer is yes. Pressure washers, or power washers, push out thousands of PSI of cleaning power and you’ll never know the true strength of this mighty machine until it’s too late. Damaged coils and fins aren’t easily recoverable and in most cases, they end up having to be replaced. Save your money and learn why NOT to clean HVAC coils with a pressure washer.

Pain is Pressure to Coils

Coils Cleaned with Pressure Washer SpeedCleanIt’s no secret – the key to safely and efficiently cleaning HVAC coils is using just the right amount of water pressure. Coil fins in most air handlers are made of thin aluminum or copper that are sensitive to high pressure and can bend or flatten easily. Too much power could crush coils flat. Garden hose are easier on coils, but don’t have enough pressure to get into the grooves and spirals of coils to effectively clean them.

    Although this stated that the key is to safely and efficiently clean HVAC coils is using the right amount of pressure, I’m not too sure how many people actually know the right amount. For the most part, I’ve heard that it’s better to hire professionals when it comes to using pressure washing. That way, you’re not accidentally damaging anything.
