It's important that evaporator coils fit the specifications of the air processing unit in your home. Johnson Heating & Cooling provides a comprehensive analysis of your AC unit to make sure it’s running at maximum efficiency. This includes replacing or repairing evaporator coils. We serve customers throughout Greenwood and surrounding areas in Central Indiana.
How Do Evaporator Coils Work?
An evaporator coil looks like a metal grill with a series of wires or pipes protruding from its ends. Its job is to convert refrigerant so your home heated or cooled appropriately. The refrigerant is usually a liquid that turns into a gas used during the heat cycle, so your HVAC system can operate at its highest efficiency. In effect, an evaporator coil absorbs heat in the air and sends it back out conditioned to match the desired temperature.
What are Common Evaporator Coil Problems?
Evaporator coils are only part of a larger complex heating or cooling system, and due to their passage of heat and cold, many problems can arise. Dirt, dust, and debris buildup in your coils can cause a nasty backup and affect efficiency. Since the coils handle cooling as well, it isn't always just the winter months when ice or frost can form to such an extent that they negatively affect air passage. There are a number of other items that can jam up an evaporator coil, such as rodent hair and mold growth.
One part of the evaporator coil that often exhibits a problem involves the fins: these may need to be either thoroughly cleaned or replaced depending on the severity of the problem. We will be able to tell what should be done through an inspection.
Evaporator coils can also start to leak, often due to corrosion of the copper or aluminum materials. We will help you solve the problem with a repair or replacement.
How Can You Prevent Problems in the Future?
Making sure the elements in your HVAC system are maintained and clean goes a long way in keeping your system in excellent working condition. This includes cleaning and replacing your evaporator coils when necessary. Proper yearly inspections can also help you avoid costly repairs.
