AC Evaporator Coils

If you need an evaporator coil installation, repair, or replacement in the greater Atlanta area, Cunningham Associates is here to help. Evaporator coils are responsible for cooling the air in your home by extracting heat from them. When they break, it can cause all sorts of problems, from a rise in your energy bills to a decrease in your indoor air quality.

There are many reasons why your evaporator coil might break. It may be age as the coils can corrode and break down over time. Another reason is improper maintenance which can cause your coils to freeze up and stop working. In any case, call Cunningham HVAC when you need help with your evaporator coil. We'll be happy to come out and take a look, and we can usually have your problem fixed in no time. 

Why is an AC evaporator coil important?

The evaporator coil is one of the most critical parts of an AC unit, and it plays a vital role in the cooling process. The coil is filled with a refrigerant, and as warm air passes over the coil, the refrigerant evaporates. This change of state absorbs heat from the air, cooling it down. The cold air is then blown into the room. So, a healthy evaporator coil is essential for maintaining a comfortable indoor environment.

But several things can go wrong with an AC evaporator coil, including:

LEAKING EVAPORATOR COIL

If there is a leak in the evaporator coil, the refrigerant will escape, and the cycle will not be able to continue. This can cause the compressor to overheat and eventually fail. In addition, leaks can also cause ice to build on the coils, which reduces their ability to absorb heat. If you suspect that your evaporator coil is leaking, it is essential to have it repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your HVAC system.

CONTAMINATED EVAPORATOR COILS

If HVAC coils become contaminated, they can spread harmful bacteria and viruses through the air. A recent study found that HVAC coils can be up to ten times more effective at spreading viruses than other surfaces. As a result, it is important to keep HVAC coils clean and free of contaminants. The best way to do this is to have the coils professionally cleaned regularly. This will ensure that they continue to function correctly and do not pose a risk to the health of occupants. 

AIRFLOW ISSUES

The evaporator coils are responsible for providing the airflow that circulates the air in the system. If the coils are dirty or blocked, the airflow will be restricted. This can cause the system to overheat, which can damage the compressor. In addition, it can make the system less efficient, resulting in higher energy costs. 

CLOGGED DRAIN PIPE

A clogged AC drain line can be a major problem for your HVAC system. When the condensate drain line becomes blocked, it can cause the evaporator coils to freeze up. This can lead to a loss of cooling power and can eventually damage the compressor. The best way to prevent a clogged drain line is to regularly have your HVAC system serviced. A qualified technician will be able to clean the coils and clear any blockages in the drain.
