What Is an Evaporator Coil?

Evaporator coils are located in an air conditioner’s air handler. These coils hold the refrigerant that is used to remove heat from the air used to cool your home. As the refrigerant in the evaporator coils warms, it is sent outside to the condenser coils. Basically, the fan blows the warm air over the evaporator coil and the refrigerant sucks out the hot air, leaving cooler air. This means air conditioners do not ‘create’ cold air, but instead, removes the heat from it.

There are a number of common problems that can be seen with evaporator coils and although simple to fix, these problems will affect your unit’s ability to cool. Dirty coils are one of the main issues that can cause serious problems. When evaporator coils are left unmaintained, they accrue dirt and debris. This dirt and debris act as an insulator which means the air conditioning becomes inefficient. You could also have a refrigerant leak, which if left unaddressed will cause serious problems.

Why Is My Evaporator Coil Leaking?

Occasionally evaporator coils will leak refrigerant. This is most often caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the home’s air coming into contact with wet copper tubing. The combination of these two materials creates a corrosive acid which can cause pinhole leaks to form.

Preventing Evaporator Coil Problems

Luckily, problems with your evaporator coil are preventable! The easiest way to ensure your coils remain functioning is to have your air conditioning unit serviced twice per year—once in the spring and once in the fall. During this service, your technician will clean the coil to ensure there is not a buildup of dust and debris. Ask our AC techs about our Service Partner Plan to get the best value for your money.

The other way to prevent evaporator coil problems is to:

  • Reduce the use of VOCs – These include aerosols, certain cleansers, automotive products, painting products, wood preservatives, amongst other chemicals
  • Use a whole home air purifier – These units are designed to neutralize VOCs through the use of UV rays. UV rays are the same ones that come from the sun but unfortunately, the sun does not reach into your HVAC unit.
  • Regular cleaning – Yes, this is to remove dust and debris, but it also removes the buildup of the acid caused by the combination of VOCs and copper

It is illegal for a technician to ‘top off’ your refrigerant if there is a leak present. It will either need to be repaired or the coil completely replaced. This is because if left unrepaired, the refrigerant will continue to leak, which is bad for the environment and bad for your wallet.
