Living in Boise, the days can become real hot real fast. When we’re sweating through our shirts after a day of being outside enjoying the sun in Boise, it’s nice to come home to a cool house. But when our customers have problems with their air conditioning, we usually like to think its the evaporator coil.
The evaporator coil is the portion of the unit that takes heat away from the air before it is pushed through the ducts and into the building. The coils are buried inside the heating and air unit, and they are filled with refrigerant that sucks the heat out of the air and causes the air to cool. Without this part functioning properly, chances are that your a/c unit will not be up to par with the heat trying to enter your home.
Why Is It Important to Receive Timely Repairs or Replacements?
The evaporator coils inside an air conditioning unit must be repaired or replaced in a timely manner before problems with the air conditioning become bad enough to be noticed. When the evaporator coils are not functioning properly, the air running through the house will not be cooled. Homeowners will typically try to make the air cooler, wasting money on their energy bill while not actually seeing any results in the temperature.
The evaporator coils are in close proximity to other important pieces of the air conditioning system. If the evaporator coils fail, they could damage other parts of the system. When more parts of the air conditioner are damaged, it takes us longer to complete the repairs. The cost for these repairs can increase tenfold when timely repair replacement is not done.Schedule a Service
What Are Some Common Evaporator Coil Problems?
As with other electrical or mechanical parts, evaporator coils are susceptible to the wear and tear of time. This is why repairing them regularly, or at the first sign of trouble, can help you avoid costly replacement payments. Here are some common problems that affect evaporator coils.
Clogs: Clogs in the evaporator coils stop refrigerant from flowing through the coils. This causes hot air, instead of cool air, to be blown into the house. Also, these clogs can burst the pipes and cause leaks.
Leaks: Leaks in the evaporator coils could be caused by rust damage, but these same leaks could be caused by a defective or faulty coil. As coils get older, the integrity of the material begins to deteriorate, and this deterioration may cause leaks in the coils.
Rust: Rust that is caused by condensation or excessive humidity could rupture the coils. We have found all these problems in the coils of our customers, and customers should take note of the relative humidity in their area, the age of the system and the last time it was serviced.
