An evaporator coil is an essential part of any cooling or heating system. They are typically found in air conditioners because they are particularly efficient at absorbing heat when air passes through them. A furnace or central air conditioner passes the air through the coil where the heat is absorbed and then sends it back inside the building as cold air through a series of air ducts. When your evaporator coil breaks down, it affects the rest of your HVAC system. Look to us for immediate repairs–we serve commercial properties throughout Long Island and Five Boroughs.
What are Common Evaporator Coil Problems?
There are a number of things that can go wrong with evaporator coils. Here are some of the more common problems.
Dirt and dust: All of the air that travels inside your property passes over the evaporator coils. Any dust or dirt that’s in the air can get trapped on the coils, preventing them from cooling properly.
Freezing: Low refrigerant in the system can cause the evaporator coils to freeze. Insufficient flow of air over the coils can also cause freezing. Frozen coils will lead to inadequate cooling, putting extra strain on the system.
Moisture: When warm air from the building makes contact with the cold evaporator coils, it forms moisture. This moisture can attract bacteria, dust, dirt, and even mold if not properly drained.
