The AC evaporator coil is one of the essential parts of your air conditioner. The heat from the air in your home is absorbed by these coils and transferred to the refrigerant. This process helps to cool the air inside your home and makes your air conditioner more efficient. Without a properly functioning evaporator coil, your air conditioner would be less effective and more energy. In addition, a dirty or damaged evaporator coil can cause your air conditioner to freeze up, making it less effective and potentially damaging the unit. As a result, it is essential to keep your evaporator coil clean and in good working condition. Following are the signs that the evaporator coil needs to be repaired or replaced.
LEAKING EVAPORATOR COIL
If you see water dripping from your AC unit, it could signify that your evaporator coil is leaking. A leaky evaporator coil can cause your air conditioner to freeze up and stop working correctly. It can also damage other AC parts. Therefore, it is essential to have a leaking evaporator coil repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Furthermore, if you see water stains on your ceiling, it could also signify a leaking evaporator coil.
CONTAMINATED EVAPORTAOR COILS
Evaporator coils can get dirty and clogged over time, reducing your AC unit's efficiency. Dirt and debris on the coils can cause the air conditioner to work harder and use more energy. In addition, dirty coils can lead to premature AC unit failure. Therefore, it is essential to have your evaporator coils cleaned regularly.
If you notice reduced airflow from your AC unit, it could signify that the evaporator coil is dirty or frozen. A clogged or frozen evaporator coil can restrict airflow and cause your air conditioner to work harder. This can lead to higher bills and premature AC unit failure. Furthermore, reduced airflow can cause your air conditioner to overheat and shut down.
If the drain pan or drain line for your evaporator coil is clogged, it can cause water to build up and leak into your home. A clogged drain line can also cause your air conditioner to freeze up and stop working correctly. Therefore, it is essential to have a clogged drain line cleaned, repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
