- Why clean my refrigerator condenser coils?
Keeping the condenser coil clean on your refrigerator is a major factor in efficiency and lasting performance. A dirty condenser coil causes the compressor to run too hot which can damage the compressor, cause the refrigerator to run too long, and cause a no-cool situation.
It is very important to clean condenser coils on forced-air refrigerators such as side-by-side and built-in models at least twice a year (if you have a refrigerator with the black coils mounted on the back, these coils don’t require semi-annual cleaning).
CONSERVE ENERGY: CLEAN YOUR RADIATOR AND REFRIGERATOR COILS! Dirty coils force your
appliances work harder, using more energy than clean coils. Regular cleaning enhances radiator and
refrigerator performance, extends their lives, and can save you up to 6% on your energy bills!
The refrigerator has a compressor that forces refrigerant through coils in the freezer and on the refrigerator’s exterior.
Evaporator coils in the freezer remove heat from inside. This heat is emitted into the room through the exterior condenser coils. If the exterior condenser coils become dirty, they are less efficient at transferring heat into the air around the refrigerator and forcing your applianceViking Appliance Repair in Los Angeles All Repairs for Viking Appliances.

How often should I clean my refrigerator condenser coils?

Why clean my dryer vents?
PREVENT FIRES: CLEAN YOUR DRYER REGULARLY.
In 1998, there were 14,300 clothes dryer fires, resulting in 19 deaths, 312 injuries, and
$67.7 million in direct property damage (NFPA). Vent cleaning is a simple, inexpensive
solution to preventing laundry fires and protecting your home.
For more information on dryer fire prevention, go to National Fire Protection Association.
How does a dryer start on fire?
Only cleaning the lint trap on your dryer is not enough! Lint, composed of flammable
materials, builds up in your dryer vents and ductwork over time. Most clothes dryers reach high enough temperatures to
ignite these materials, causing a fire. Routine cleaning your dryer vent and ductwork from lint accumulation can prevent
deadly fires. For more information on fire prevention, go to the National Fire Protection Association site.
Why clean my air ductwork?
IMPROVE AIR QUALITY! Many people have allergic reactions to pollen, bacteria, dust mites and mold. These particles, along with other invisible pollutants, settle in the air ducts and are re-circulated every time the furnace or air conditioner blower is operating. Cleaning and disinfecting your ductwork not only eliminates most contaminants but also can improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and furnace by improving airflow. There are an estimated 42.6 million Americans living with hay fever and/or asthma. Learning how to control a home’s environment to reduce allergen levels is important for managing allergies and asthma. Individuals who suffer from asthma, or have other respiratory illness may potentially be at a greater risk for health complications associated with poor air quality in their homes. Legionnaire’s Disease, which can be caused by improper maintenance of cooling towers and HVAC systems, strikes 18,000 people and kills over 4,000 people per year.None found.
