Are you having AC problems in the middle of summer? While regular maintenance can help prevent unexpected breakdowns and mechanical failure, problems can still occur. One of the most important components in your AC unit is the evaporator coil, which can freeze or become blocked without warning. A properly maintained evaporator coil can help extend the life of your AC unit and prevent untimely breakdowns. Read on to find out how our Colonial Heights AC repair experts can help with your evaporator coil problems.
What causes evaporator coil issues?
The evaporator coil resembles a small set of pipes and absorbs heat when warmer air is pushed through it. Heat is absorbed as your home’s heating or cooling appliance passes the indoor air through the evaporator coil. Along with the condenser, the evaporator coil is one of the major components of an air conditioner.
Common evaporator coil issues we handle:
- As air passes through the coils, dirt and dust may accumulate. If a significant amount of dust is allowed to collect, the coils will eventually become inefficient at cooling the air that travels through.
- Condensation on the coils may exacerbate the problem of accumulated dirt by attracting and trapping dust, bacteria, and mold from the air.
- The evaporator coil can also freeze. A frozen coil is often the result of low refrigerant levels in the air conditioning system. Coils may also freeze if the amount of airflow through the coils is too low. In some cases, an air conditioner may stop working altogether due to a frozen coil.
Evaporator coil problems can cause your AC to work harder than usual, which may lead to higher electricity bills. Avoid wasting your money on a faulty system and get your evaporator coil problem repaired as quickly as possible.
