There are many parts that play a big role in the life of your air conditioner unit. The two most important components of the AC system are the condenser and the evaporator coil. Let’s take a look at how that coil helps keep you and your family comfortable.
What is it?
An evaporator coil is the hero of your home’s cooling system. It looks like a series of pipes within your central air conditioner.
How does it work?
Refrigerant is used in the evaporator. The refrigerant evaporates, or is converted into gas, which traps heat and humidity from the air that passes through your air conditioning system. The excess moisture collected during the process eventually migrates to a drain and is discarded. This lowers the humidity in your home, leaving the indoor environment clean and comfortable. Once the evaporator coil absorbs the air’s heat, cold, dehumidified air is sent back into your home via the ductwork.
Why is it important?
The evaporator coil is the most crucial contact for heat in your AC unit. The purpose of this coil is to remove humidity and heat from the air passing through. It then circulates cold air through the rest of your home. Without the evaporator coil, your home would not likely stay cool during the summer or warm during the winter. Its role is vital in keeping your home comfortable year round.
