What Problems Affect Evaporator Coils?

Unfortunately, evaporator coils can develop problems. The coils have to cope with swings in temperature, from freezing to hot, that would stress any mechanical part. The more common problems include rusting, leaks, and freezing. Because coils are under constant stress, many manufacturers require regular inspections by a qualified heating and cooling technician to keep the warranty valid.

Signs that a coil may have failed include water dripping onto the floor near a heater. Frozen parts in an AC unit, as well as water dripping from your AC unit or from the pipes around it, also indicate evaporator coil failure. Other trouble signs include vents blowing cool air when the heater is on, or warm air when the AC unit is active.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Evaporator Coil?

Even a handy homeowner can have trouble fixing or replacing an evaporator coil. In most cases, it’s best to leave repair and maintenance to a technician. Contact us for an inspection of your system to accurately diagnose the problem.

Our technicians will advise you on whether to repair or replace the part. If the coil is still under warranty, replacement is usually recommended. Leaks can generally be repaired; however, once a unit leaks it is likely to develop further leaks even after repairs. For these reasons, we often recommend replacing any malfunctioning evaporator coils.

Responsive, Reliable, Trustworthy – Three words describe American Mechanical HVAC technician , Jon Schemetti. Early Sunday morning, I discovered two large wet spots forming on my bathroom ceiling. I climbed into my attic to check my electric water heater and found water in the drain pan and all over my attic floor around the heater. I immediately shut off my water main and called American Mechanical because they had replaced my water heater four years ago and I initially thought my water heater had failed again. Within an hour or so, Jon Schemetti called to say he would be here soon. He called back soon again after to say he was on his way. He asked me what color my water heater pipes were.  I went back to the attic to check and discovered the leak was from a blown brass coupling seal leading to the water heater. Jon quickly replaced a section of copper pipe and installed a new brass coupling. He could have tried to sell me on a new water heater, but instead he was honest and only charged me $125 for the repair, which was extremely fair since it was the weekend emergency call. American Mechanical continues to earn their first place standing in my book for all my HVAC, plumbing, and electrical repairs.  Thank you Jon and American Mechanical!"

Maintaining Your Evaporator Coil

Regular cleaning and inspection by our technician can help prevent, or at least postpone, coil failure. Some homeowners ask if they can clean out coils on their own, but this is not recommended due to risk of damaging the unit. In addition, some coils are sealed to prevent casual access and damage.

Our technician is able to access the coil, clean the trays and the coil unit itself, and test for leaks or other signs of failure. We provide you with the maintenance and cleaning needed to keep your overall HVAC system healthy and efficient.
