What Do Your Evaporator Coils Do?
The evaporator coil within your AC is housed inside of the blower compartment, otherwise known as the air handler. The job of the evaporator coil is to hold the chilled refrigerant that the compressor moves into it.
The cold refrigerant then removes the heat from your home’s air as the air passes over the coils. The refrigerant then becomes warmer, eventually traveling to the condenser coils located outside.
In the winter, the process reverses when using a heat pump. Rather than absorbing the heat and transferring it outside, the evaporator coil expels heat from the refrigerant into your home. Many heat pumps have auxiliary heating elements as part of the evaporator coil. These elements are used to supply heat when temperatures drop below a certain point.
Why Repair or Replace Your Evaporator Coil?
Various small and fragile parts make up your air conditioner, and like all these, evaporator coils are subject to breaking down and requiring repairs. But because evaporator coils are essentially the most important part of your AC (they allow the transfer of cold and hot air that lets you control the temperature of your home) you definitely feel it if they break down.
But why do these units break down? Below are some of the most common reasons:
- An Old AC Unit: If your unit is getting older, a broken evaporator coil is usually the first sign of this wear and tear.
- Frozen Coils: If your coils are filled with dust, they won’t be able to transfer any cold air, causing the air to remain and freeze the coils. In some cases, this could even cause freon to leak from your unit.
- Dirty Coils: Dirty and dusty coils are the results of maintenance negligence. The longer a system goes without being cleaned, the more dirt buildup and the more likely a breakdown becomes.
