Evaporator Coils North Richland Hills, TXWhy are evaporator coils important to your AC system?

In an AC unit, there are copper coils placed near the blowers known as evaporator coils. These coils are made from aluminum or steel and they connect the condenser and the expansion valve.

As the refrigerant passes through these coils, they are boiled. The evaporator coil boils the refrigerant liquid to turn it into gas. It is the gas that goes into the compressor, and then the cycle begins again.

Without the evaporator coil, no component will absorb the air from your room, and the low-pressure refrigerant cannot pass through the condenser.

How do I clean my evaporator coil?

To clean your evarporator coil, make sure you use the appropriate cleaning attire, and use the right chemical solution to wash it with, preferably alkaline-based cleaning solutions. You can always contact us at THE AC HERO to get this taken care of.
