Re: how much should a-coil cleaning be?


It really depends on how accessible the coil is and how they intend to clean it. If the coil is encased in ductwork and has no access panel, it might need to be removed... which means a LOT of work and very high cost. But if it has easy access to the "dirty" side then it will be easy and cheap. There are also coil spray cleaners that you spray on that purport to loosen the crud up so it flows out with the condensate. I can't give you any numbers, but just am trying to show that costs can vary a lot. The best strategy is to use decent filters and change them regularly to try to avoid a dirty coil in the first place. It would help if you posted a picture of your system here so the pros can tell you what might be involved in cleaning your particular coil.

No personal experience because ours has never needed cleaning to the best of our knowledge, but our service tech only removes them to clean and i suspect the charge is around 600 bucks. Some he takes to a car wash if it isn't too far away. The pic is an example he keeps on file.

Re: how much should a-coil cleaning be?


this is not a "how much should this be" board - how would we know without seeing it and being in your area to know pricing?

"I think it's dirty" - evap coil cleaning is not part of normal maintenance. There are different ways to see if a coil is dirty, if it is dirty the air isn't being properly filtered.
