While you may not know how your air conditioner works, you’ll easily be able to tell when it’s not working. One of the internal components that keeps your air cold and comfortable is the AC evaporator coil.

What Are Evaporator Coils?
To keep things simple, your evaporator coils are responsible for keeping the air in your home cold. How do they do it? These coils work by compressing the refrigerant that runs through your air conditioner into a gas that’s then housed in the coils. As air passes over these coils, it’s cooled, giving you that comfortable feeling you enjoy on a hot summer day in Livermore. While these components are often durable, they do require regular AC maintenance to ensure they’re working at the highest level possible.
Signs You Need Coil Cleaning
As mentioned before, evaporator coils are housed inside your air conditioner, which makes it hard to tell when coil repair is needed. With that being said, there are some warning signs you can look for before you’re faced with an emergency.
- Poor Air Quality: Your evaporator coils directly affect all the air entering your home. If you notice an uptick in colds, respiratory issues, or overall discomfort, chances are you need AC evaporator coil cleaning.
- Fluctuating Temperatures: Without your evaporator coils you’ll find yourself with no cold air. If your temperatures are fluctuating between cool and lukewarm, but never getting cold, chances are you could have a refrigerant leak in your coils.
- Dusty Coils: While it’s not the easiest thing to do, you can look under your air conditioner to see a part of your evaporator coil assembly. If you notice a lot of dust or grime, it could mean cleaning is needed. If your AC filter is not replaced frequently, this can be a common problem.
- Water Leaks: If your coils are leaking freon or covered in dust, it’s common for them to freeze over. As they start to thaw, you could find yourself with a pool of water under your air conditioner. THis is always a clear sign that evaporator coil repairs are needed.
