What Is an Evaporator Coil?
Your AC system contains two coils that are essential to its functioning properly: the evaporator coil and the condenser coil. The evaporator coil carries the coolant and when the hot air flows over the coil, it becomes cool before entering your home. If your home isn’t getting as cool as it used to, chances are that it could have something to do with this coil, in which case we recommend either an AC evaporator coil cleaning or evaporator coil replacement.
Why You Need a Clean Evaporator Coil
When your air conditioner’s evaporator coil becomes dirty, it increases the amount of energy your system uses — some experts say as much as 30 percent, which is money wasted on higher electric bills. Also, a dirty evaporator coil cuts down on the system’s ability to cool the air coming in, which means your home doesn’t get as cool as you like. Lastly, a dirty evaporator coil can lead to the coil freezing, which can overheat your system’s compressor.
If your AC system is more than 10 years old and hasn’t been properly maintained, call our expert technicians for an assessment of your air conditioning system.
Whether you need to install a dehumidifier or repair your air handler, we have all your cooling needs covered in one place.
Why You Should Hire a Pro for AC Evaporator Coil Cleaning
We get it, you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, and we appreciate that. However, your home’s air conditioning system features some difficult to reach parts, and parts that need an expert to service so they work like new. Your AC evaporator coil is a delicate device and it doesn’t take much pressure to bend or break it. Also, in many instances, the evaporator coil is in a hard to reach location, which can be tough to access even for a pro.
That’s why it’s a good idea to have a licensed, trained AC professional service your AC evaporator and other parts associated with your air conditioning system. Our team has seen it all, and we’ve got the experience to get the job done quickly, and done the right way the first time.
