Benefits of Cleaning Your Refrigerator’s Condenser Coils

A clean
refrigerator is a happy refrigerator. Our refrigerators work nonstop
for us, running 24 hours a day to keep our food fresh and cold; the
least we could do is give them some TLC every now and then.
the condenser coils on the back of the refrigerator is a key part of
any good maintenance routine. These coils should be cleaned every
four months, and even more often than that if you have pets.
are a couple of reasons why cleaning your refrigerator’s condenser
coils is worth ten minutes of your time.
Save Energy
The job
of the condenser coils is to cool and condense the liquid refrigerant
running through them. In order to cool the refrigerant, heat needs to
be released. As dust and dirt begins to accumulate on the back of
your refrigerator, the condenser coils can’t efficiently release this
heat. This overheating causes the refrigerator’s compressor to work
harder, which results in an additional $5-$10 on your monthly utility
Extend Lifespan
addition to increased energy consumption, the extra wear-and-tear
that dirty coils place on your compressor can shorten your
refrigerator’s lifespan. When your refrigerator breaks down, your
food spoils, you spend time waiting for the repairman to show up, and
you have to pay for parts and labor.
Instead, keep your refrigerator’s coils clean and eliminate 70% of
the service calls you will ever have to make.
