One of the more important elements of your air conditioning system is the evaporator coil. The AC wouldn’t be AC without it, so it’s important to keep it clean and working well throughout the summer months. Many components of your air conditioning system can affect its performance and it’s always wise to watch for any problems, and you’ll know if the problem is with your evaporator coil.
Why Do I Need an Evaporator Coil?
The reason you need an evaporator coil to make your AC work correctly is that it contains the refrigerant that cools the air before it goes back into your living space. If the refrigerant isn’t there to cool the air as it is drawn from your home, there won’t be any chilled air to go back in.
How to Tell if It’s Broken
If your evaporator coil develops a problem, it’s usually a refrigerant leak. If the refrigerant is leaking from the coil, its ability to cool the air will be affected, and you may start to feel warm or lukewarm air coming from your vents. If you are near the air handler where the evaporator coil is housed, you may see the leaking refrigerant or smell it as it escapes from the coil. It’s important to call for assistance as soon as you see something like this, in order to keep the system running smoothly.

Can I Clean the Coil On My Own?
Your evaporator coil also has the tendency to collect dirt and grime as time goes by, and regular cleaning is recommended. Many homeowners do this cleaning themselves, but be sure you know about all the parts surrounding the coil so you don’t cause any damage that will need repairs. If you schedule routine maintenance for your AC system each year, the technician will clean the coil as part of the service, so self-cleaning and its risks are usually unnecessary.
