An air conditioner needs maintenance on a regular basis to maintain its lifespan and operate at optimal levels. What is an evaporator coil?
The evaporator coil is located in the air handler component of your air conditioning system and is the location where heat transfer occurs. Warm air from your home passes through the evaporator coils where heat is absorbed by the coils, leaving cool air to be circulated throughout your home.
A dirty evaporator coil limits the amount of heat that the AC unit can remove from the passing air. This causes a decrease in the efficiency of your AC unit and forces your air conditioner to work harder for longer times. When this occurs, there are other things that can be affected, including the AC unit breaking down.
The air that passes through the evaporator coils often contains dirt, dust, microbes, cigarette smoke and other air pollutants. This is why it is important to have an AC filter that you regularly change. Even with the use of a filter, however, the evaporator coil can become clogged with dust and other contaminants.
The first line of defense is in getting your AC checked on a regular basis. This will pinpoint any issues that may be going on. Using a trained technician from a reputable company such as Neighbors AC is key. Once the trained technician inspects your unit, he will assess the status of your evaporator coil to see if it needs to be cleaned. This is part of a routine Preventative Maintenance Check that should be scheduled on a consistent basis.
Your associate at Neighbors AC will be able to give you more details on the care of your AC unit, ways to cut costs and the benefits of getting an AC coil cleaning. Call us today and let us help keep your AC Unit maintained and working efficiently to provide you clean, cool air.
