Evaporator Coil Services

Heating & Cooling Professionals in Virginia Beach

For a lot of homeowners, an evaporator coil is out of sight and out of mind. However, without this important component, your heating and cooling systems would not be able to function. The coil makes heat transfer possible in in your Virginia Beach HVAC system.

It works in tandem with a whole-house AC unit or a heat pump to draw cool air out of a house in order to warm it, or warm air out of a house to help cool it. An evaporator coil also helps remove excess moisture from the air, serving as a kind of dehumidifier.

Need to repair or replace your evaporator coil? Contact us at (757) 347-8549 for service in Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.

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
  • Water dripping from your AC unit or from the pipes around it
  • Vents blowing cool air when the heater is on
  • Warm air blowing 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. Our Virginia Beach 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.

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.
