What Is an Evaporator Coil?

Standard residential air conditioning systems are comprised of two major components: The condenser unit located outside and the evaporator, which is inside. The liquid refrigerant travels from the condenser to the evaporator coils, where the liquid turns to vapor. The process of evaporation is what provides the cooling effect, much in the same way that the process of perspiration cools down the body.

Warm air is blown through the cold evaporator coils to cool it down before it travels through the ductwork towards the rooms in your house. The refrigerant in its vapor form loops back to the condenser to be pressurized back into liquid form, releasing the heat energy through the compressor’s fan. The refrigerant travels in a continuous loop, going from liquid to vapor and back again in a heat exchange process.

Common Causes of Evaporator Coil Problems

From time to time, you may notice that your air conditioner’s evaporator coils are damaged or affected by something that is keeping them from operating flawlessly.

Causes of evaporator coil problems include:

  • Dirt on the coils: through months and years of use, a layer of dust and dirt can accumulate on the coils. The problem is exacerbated if the air filter hasn’t been changed on a regular basis. The coat of dirt on the coils acts as an insulation between them and the passing warm air, slowing the cooling process greatly.
  • Excess moisture: condensation is a normal by-product of the cooling process. Water forms on the coils, drips into a pan and is eliminated through a drain tube. If the tube gets blocked or drainage is hampered for any other reason, the added moisture can lead to more dirt adhering to the coils and to the formation of bacteria and rust.
  • Freezing: frozen coils are usually caused by insufficient refrigerant in the system. The cooling process does not consume refrigerant, therefore, a lack of it is either the result of a leak or improper initial installation. Frozen coils restrict the flow of air, making it more difficult for the air conditioning system to achieve the desired cool temperature in your home.

If you notice that your air conditioner is failing to properly cool your home, you can count on us to diagnose the problem and fix it quickly.
