What Are Evaporator Coils?
Evaporator coils are an internal component of the AC unit that is used to cool the air circulating in your home. How do they do this? They compress freon into a liquid that is used to cool. As your fan brings warm air from outside, it passes over these coils, cooling it in the process and also removing any excess moisture. If they are in any way damaged, the process would be hindered, and your AC would cycle warm air into your home.
4 Signs an Evaporator Coil is Damaged
These coils are an integral part of the cooling process, and because of this, it’s important to make sure they are working. A few signs to be on the lookout for include:
- Fluctuating Temperatures: If evaporator coils are in any way damaged, they will not always be able to cool the air entering your home. This translates into varying temperature, which is never great in the summer months.
- High Energy Bills: If your coils are in working order, your air conditioner shouldn't have to work hard to cool the home. Pay attention to your energy bills and see if there are any unusual spikes, particularly when the AC unit is in use.
- Frozen Coils: Because they coils are constantly compressing freon, if they are dirty or in any way damaged, they can quickly become frozen. This will prevent additional freon from compressing and your air conditioner will no longer cool.
- Pooling Water: This is related to frozen coils, but if you find water pooling underneath your air conditioner, chances are it’s coming from your coils. Because they remove condensation from warm air, that excess water can easily find its way into your home.
