Dog urine contains chemicals that through repeated exposure can cut through the metal on your air conditioner. First the outer casing is eaten through, and then the coils are exposed to the toxic urine. The coils are the part of the a/c that house the refrigerant used to cool the air in the home.
Service technicians use a commercial grade cleaning solvent to loosen any dirt that accumulates between the fins of a condenser coil. This is the only safe way I know of to clean a coil with out damaging it. Hosing off a coil may clean the dirt off of the outside of the coil, but it doesn’t get all of the dirt
in between the fins.
An air conditioner clean and check from Four Seasons performed yearly is the perfect antidote to coil clogging. Our NATE certified technicians will professionally and expertly navigate their way through cleaning nearly every inch of your air conditioning system. This service prepares the unit to take on the scorching hot summers that are common across the Chicagoland area, and to do so with ease.
The coils and other copper lines used in the air conditioning system are an easy target for those looking to make a quick buck. The value of copper has been on the rise in recent years, and all a thief needs is a pair of metal cutters and suddenly your air conditioner is useless. Some thieves will gut the unit where it stands leaving you with a pile of scraps, and others will disconnect and take the unit with them. Either way you are now left with the daunting cost of replacing the air conditioner.
