Frequently Asked Questions
What is an evaporate coil?
In your air conditioner unit, the evaporator coil is an integral piece. The refrigerant passes through the coil, which is made of aluminum, copper, or steel. In the coil, the refrigerant boils and becomes a gas. Then in the compressor, it is forced back into a liquid, releasing heat. Your air conditioning unit cannot effectively absorb heat from the room if the evaporator coil isn’t working correctly. The evaporator coil can either be part of the furnace, or it could be inside of your air handler.
What are common evaporator coil problems?
There are several issues that technicians commonly see during evaporator coil services:
Ice buildup: The evaporator coil can freeze even on a hot day.
Dirt and debris: A common problem is the accumulation of dirt and debris in the coil over time. This dirt can block the airflow, resulting in poor performance.
Neglect: If The evaporator coil does not get serviced regularly, or if it has never been serviced, it can force the entire air conditioning system to work harder.
Age: Over time, even regularly maintained evaporator coils could fail.
How long does an evaporator coil last?
The evaporator coil can last between 10 and 15 years. The length of time that the coil will last depends on several factors, but the most important is how frequently maintenance occurs. If a technician is servicing the evaporator coil regularly, it will likely last a long time. However, many people who move into a home with an existing air conditioning unit may not know the age of the evaporator coil or whether it was ever serviced. Regardless of the service history, it is critical to have a technician inspect the evaporator coil when you move in.
What are evaporator coil services?
A technician who comes to perform evaporator coil services will inspect the coil. Inspection will help determine if there is any damage and what kind of damage is present. The evaporator coil can also be a dust and debris magnet so that a technician can do a thorough cleaning of the coil. Sometimes the technician will discover damage that is beyond repair. If this happens, your technician will determine whether to replace the evaporator coil or the entire air conditioning system. Calling a technician at the first sign of trouble could save you the more costly expense of replacement.
Can I service my evaporator coil myself?
There are some things that you can do yourself to extend the life of your evaporator coil. The first may surprise you: regularly replace your air filters. By replacing clogged air filters, you reduce the strain on the evaporator coil and dust buildup. Another task that many people can perform themselves is superficial cleaning of the coil. You can get a bristle brush and a commercial-grade cleaner. Make sure you use personal protective equipment to protect you from the cleaner. It is best to call a technician if you are unsure about cleaning or if you need other kinds of repairs.
How often should I have my evaporator coil serviced?
If you already have a service routine established, a technician can inspect the evaporator coil once a year. However, you may want to have a technician check the evaporator coil more often in certain circumstances, such as before and after a high use season like summertime. And if you have recently moved into a new home, you should call a technician for evaporator coil services to be on the safe side. Older coils may also need a little extra care. And finally, replacing your air filters monthly can be one of the most critical components of your evaporator coil maintenance.

And if you’ve just moved into your home or you have never had the coil serviced, it’s better to be safe than sorry and schedule a service today.
