How Does An Evaporator Coil Work?
In an air conditioner, an evaporator coil is the component that takes in heat from the air. When the air conditioner’s working, its condenser compresses refrigerant, which is a gas. The refrigerant is compressed to the point where it turns into a very cold liquid. This liquid is blown through the evaporator coils which causes the air that flows over the cold liquid in the evaporator coil to lose some of its heat. The cool air then enters the house and cools it down to the temperature specified by the thermostat.
What Are The Different Types Of Evaporator Coils?
Evaporator coils come in three basic types. There are A evaporator coils, which resemble the letter “A”. There are “N” evaporator coils and there are slab coils. A homeowner will most likely see A or N coils in their air conditioning unit. N coils are used with air conditioners that are more energy efficient and have a higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio or SEER.
What Are Common Evaporator Coil Issues?
Problems happen with evaporator coils when their size isn’t compatible with the condenser unit’s size. The size of both the coil and the condenser have to be perfectly aligned. If not, the coil could freeze and shut down the air conditioner. Another problem with a coil is that a broken drain pan or a drain pipe that’s cracked can allow moisture to accumulate around the coils. This also can make the air conditioner work less efficiently. The evaporator coil can also leak refrigerant. This becomes more of a risk the older the home and the air conditioning unit are.
