When To Call For AC Evaporator Coil Repair
Evaporator coil problems are fairly common and easy to spot. Here are a few signs you may need repairs:
- Warm airflow: As your AC’s evaporator coil is responsible for cooling the air in the system, if it’s dirty, clogged, or damaged, warm airflow is usually the first sign.
- Frozen coils: When too much water condenses on the coils, which normally operate at temperatures around 32° F, ice will form.
- Refrigerant leaks: Freon, the coolant in your evaporator coil, can be hazardous to your health, and repairs are more complicated than simply adding more. Our certified technicians will repair your evaporator coil and test for other structural defects before refilling the refrigerant.
- Unpleasant odors: If condensed water remains on the coil for too long without evaporating, it creates an environment that promotes mold and bacteria growth.
Even if you’re not sure your AC’s evaporator coil is what’s causing problems with your air conditioner, give us a call. Our local experts can quickly pinpoint cooling system issues and repair them just as fast.
When Is Evaporator Coil Replacement A Better Option?
The average evaporator coil has a lifespan of about 20 years, but it will be about 30% less efficient by the end of that time frame. We recommend having your evaporator coil—or your entire AC—replaced after 10-15 years as a result.
It’s also often more cost-effective in the long run to replace an evaporator coil that has extensive damage, large leaks or has required frequent repair. The cost of continued repairs along with rising energy costs as a result of lost efficiency often exceeds replacement costs.
We're happy to perform a full inspection and offer a recommendation as to whether repair, evaporator coil replacement, or full AC replacement is the better option. We'll always be honest with you about the condition of your HVAC system.
If it’s time for a new air conditioner, we can help with that too. We offer the highest-quality AC installation services in Niles.
The Importance Of Professional AC Evaporator Coil Cleaning
Your air conditioning’s evaporator coils naturally accumulate dirt and debris over time. If left unaddressed, this build-up can cause your cooling system to become less effective and can decrease your evaporator coil's useful life. Our professional cleaning services will restore your evaporator coil’s insulation capabilities and reduce the chance that your air conditioner will need future repairs.
Our trained professionals will also inspect and clean other components of your AC, such as the filter and air handler. Regular maintenance and cleaning is the best way to ensure your air conditioner works reliably and efficiently.
