Evaporator Coils Replacement

Upon examination of your air conditioning unit, you will find the evaporator coils positioned strategically next to the unit. In all types of air conditioning systems, there are generally three different types of evaporator coils: vertical evaporator coils, cased evaporator coils and uncased evaporator coils. It is of the vitally important to carry out routine check-ups, maintenance and, if needed, to replace your evaporator coils. These coils can rust, wear down or simply age over time. Knowing the state of your evaporator coils will enable you to be pro-active with the maintenance and upkeep of them.

If there is a problem with your evaporator coil, the effects can usually be seen in the efficiency of the AC. When you turn on the system and set a temperature on your thermostat, if you only get lukewarm air instead of the chilled air you are used to, there may be an issue with the coil. If you notice refrigerant leaking near the air handler or from the coil itself, there is a split or hole in the coil and it needs attention.

It is of the utmost importance that you select the right evaporator coil for your air conditioning unit. This would be critical to the overall performance of your air conditioning unit.

There is a maze of pipes and ductwork that work together to transfer the air through and ensure even distribution throughout the building. The evaporator coil is part of this process and is responsible for distributing the cooled air through the ductwork. In short, the evaporator coil absorbs the heat from the building and allows free flow of the cooled air. The evaporator coil is kept moderately cool, under the dew point. It condenses water vapor from the already-processed air. This is very similar to the process of a cold drink forming condensation on the outside of its can or cup. The evaporator coil moves the water to the drain, removing the vapor from the cooled area, which results in lower humidity in the air.

It is critical that you perform regular and continual routine maintenance and, if needed, replacing your evaporator coil. This will guarantee peak performance of your air conditioning unit. It is be advisable that you replace the evaporator coil that has worn out. This will maximize the amount of fresh air flowing through your building.
