As a homeowner, you depend on your air conditioner to keep you cool and comfortable in your home. While you may not know all the internal components that make that happen, one you may want to be familiarized with is your evaporator coils.

What Are Evaporator Coils?
Inside of your AC is the air handler, which cools and distributes the air throughout your home. In order to cool that air, it uses compressed gas inside of the evaporator coils. As air passes over the coils it’s cooled, giving you access to the comfortable and cool air you enjoy so much in your home. Although they’re out of sight and often out of mind, it’s important to check them periodically to ensure they’re working as optimally as possible.
How Can You Tell When Coil Cleaning Is Needed?
Don’t wait until your air conditioner starts blowing hot air to determine that you need AC evaporator coil repair. Your unit will often provide other warning signs, including:
- Fluctuating Temperatures: Even if the refrigerant has leaked out of your coils, there still may be some pockets that help cool your air from time to time. If you’re noticing that your air is sometimes cold and other times lukewarm, chances are your evaporator coils need service.
- Water Leaks: When the evaporator coils are covered in dust and grime, they’ll often freeze over. Not only will this prevent them from working properly, but when they do start working again, they’ll thaw. This will leave you with a puddle under your air conditioner.
- High Energy Bills: The worse the condition of your AC, the stronger your unit has to work to cool your home. If you’re seeing spikes in your energy costs, your evaporator coils could be the cause.
Anytime your air conditioner is struggling to produce a steady supply of cold air, it should be a cause for concern. While sometimes this can be attributed to a larger concern like a damaged coil, in other instances it can be something simple like a coil cleaning.
One of the leading causes of dirty evaporator coils is homeowners forgetting to replace their air filters. Your filter doesn't just keep impurities out of the air your breath, it also keeps them off essential components. An evaporator coil cleaning can get your system back up and running in no time.
