Evaporator coils are an essential part of your HVAC system. They are the part of the system where the refrigerant absorbs heat and forces cold air into the rooms of a house. It is important to choose evaporator coils that last a long time to prevent HVAC failures.

If you notice that your HVAC system is deteriorating, it is time to upgrade your evaporator coils. Installing new ones isn’t easy; therefore contacting specialist like Atlas HVAC, Inc. can help you pick out quality coils that will sustain throughout time.

Not only will replacing your broken evaporator coils fix the airflow throughout your home, but it can also cut down in energy costs. When evaporator coils start to break down, they will begin to collect dirt and dust that can restrict the airflow, and will cause your system to work harder. Also, since it won’t be absorbing as much heat, the evaporator won’t warm up as much as it used to. This could direct the whole coil to frost over when the cold refrigerant causes the water vapor in your air to freeze instead of condensing to liquid.  By always keeping up the maintenance of your HVAC system, you can avoid having to fix your unit frequently.

Dirty evaporator coils can also be harmful to your health. All of the dust that floats around can create mold. These airborne pollutants can stick to wood, carpet, and furniture. All of this build up can make you sick by breathing it.  Making sure your coils are always clean can prevent such hazardous conditions.

I general, your AC will last you up to 15 years if maintained regularly. Always consult your HVAC contractor to properly handle the conservation of your AC coils.
