Commercial Coil Cleaning Services

Are your cooling coils impacted and clogged with dirt and debris? Proper commercial coil cleaning is your solution.

If you are an engineer for a commercial building, you already clean your cooling coils on a regular basis.  But even when you routinely clean your cooling coils, sometimes the dirt and debris builds up faster than you can clean it out and becomes heavier over time.

With our heavy duty equipment specifically designed for cleaning cooling coils, we can help you make the most of your regular maintenance by deep cleaning your cooling coils.

Preventive Maintenance (PM) of HVAC: Preventive maintenance will improve IAQ and reduce energy use by removing contaminant sources (e.g. clean coils/drain pans), and insuring proper calibration and efficient operation of mechanical components (e.g. fans, motors, thermostats and controls). Data from many buildings throughout the United States show that a properly commissioned building with controls and equipment functioning properly can save 5%-15% in total building energy cost.

Cooling and Hot Water Coil Cleaning


Are your Delta-P readings too high? Has your basic pressure washing failed? Is your air flow restricted? Are you faced with the high cost of replacing your coils?

Have your cooling coils professionally cleaned by Power Vac America.   You can benefit from what we have learned over the years and from the equipment that we have to clean your coils. For your really bad coils, let us steam clean them.

These cooling coils, serving an office building in downtown Houston, show the difference between routine cleaning with a pressure washer and our coil cleaning technique:



Before Cleaning

Before commercial coil cleaning in Houston
Over time, the dirt has built up on these coils, even with regular in-house cleaning.  The lightened lines of an in-house pressure washer cleaning can be clearly seen.

After Cleaning

After commercial coil cleaning in Houston
After cleaning with our powerful equipment, these cooling coils have been restored to a “like new” state.  Since the air handler will be able to push air across the coils without as much effort, these coils are now much more energy efficient.  Additionally, they will be easier to clean in-house for future cleanings.

Could commercial coil cleaning solve your indoor air quality problems?

Here are the results!
Delta-P Before   3.65

That is a 46% reduction

Now you don’t have to replace the coils, which is costly both in time and money.

Dirty Cooling Coils

When you turn your A/C on, your system pushes the warm air over these coils.  The coils cool down the air, then the air continues down the line to exit out the vents in your home.  If your coils are this grimy, a couple things are possible:

1) The system has to work twice as hard to get air through.  All that dirt and debris means that your system is working overtime to push the air to the other side of the coils.

2) Possible odor issues and potentially hazardous microbes and fungal growth might be entering the air in your home.

If you can smell a “musty” or “mildewy” odor whenever you turn on your air conditioning, it’s possible that you need to have your coils cleaned.  Call Power Vac America to speak with Mike and to get an estimate for cleaning your system!

Clean Cooling Coils

When an HVAC system is clean, including the cooling coils, your system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.


Indoor air quality is one concern that building managers and building tenants have when they decide to investigate an HVAC system. Through normal occupation in a building, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation  causes a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork.

While a contaminated HVAC system doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy air, the situation may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Steam Cleaning for Cooling Coils

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning in a Rooftop Air Handler Unit
For especially dirty coils, we have an electric steam cleaner.
Since it runs on electricity, it doesn’t require the ventilation of a traditional propane-based steam cleaner and can access cooling coils even in the tallest, most inaccessible buildings.
Can be used with either our Clean & Green coil cleaner, or traditional coil cleaning products.
We record before and after Delta P’s across the coils, to thoroughly document the increase in air flow resulting from the steam cleaning.
