Know the difference between Evaporator and Condenser Coils, how do they help cool your home and why it is necessary to clean AC coils.
An evaporator coil, also known as the evaporator core, is the part of an hvac system where the refrigerant absorbs heat. This is where the cold air comes from. The evaporator coil is located inside or near the air handler where the blower fan is. Evaporator coils are made from copper, which is a type of metal. Copper is used due to its ability to distribute heat more evenly than other materials like aluminum or stainless steel.
Evaporator and condenser coils work together through cooling cycles. When your air conditioning system undergoes a cooling cycle it takes in heat from inside your house and transfers it through the condenser coils where it takes the heat and releases it outside. Condensers do not rely exclusively on cooling performance; they work together optimizing room temperature for comfort too.
The condenser coil captures heat from the air and then releases it in a process that is opposite to how an evaporator works. In this case, cold refrigerant gas goes through your home or business by way of heating coils which turn into vapor when they're warmed up enough before passing through them again at higher pressure levels.
If the ac condenser coils do not absorb the heat properly the coolant can cause the gasses that are released to stop condensing into liquid and cause it to freeze. All of these reactions can cause your system to fail.
HVAC systems need preventative maintenance so that the units do not have to be replaced in their entirety later on. Even for pricey systems, if regular cleanings are not sought after the efficiency will seriously decrease. For air conditioner condenser coils and evaporator coils, the issues that arise can be the accumulation of dust particles. Even if it is simply a thin layer of dust - it can affect its efficiency and will take a longer amount of time to cool your home properly.
Having regular AC maintenance is important to ensure your system stays running smoothly.
