Port St Lucie AC Evaporator Coil Repair
Most homeowners don’t know the individual components of their HVAC system, so it can be challenging to identify a problem. All of the HVAC components are essential, but the evaporator coil is one of the most because it’s the one that removes heat from the inside air to keep you cool.
Scheduling routine AC evaporator coil cleaning helps to keep your system running efficiently and avoid various problems that could shorten your HVAC’s lifespan. Here are the most common issues that could signal you need evaporator coil replacement or service.
Poor cooling performance: When an evaporator coil gets dirty, it can affect its ability to remove heat from the air, resulting in less comfort. If your system can’t deliver the desired temperature, call a technician to determine if the evaporator coil is clogged or dirty.
Higher energy bills: Another noticeable issue that results from a dirty or damaged evaporator coil is higher energy bills. Dirty coils cause the AC to work harder to cool your home, resulting in greater energy consumption.
Leaks or drips: If you notice water or refrigerant leaks near the air conditioner, it could signify a damaged evaporator coil.
Unusual noises: The evaporator coil is a part of the air conditioner that works closely with other components, so any unusual noises, such as hissing or buzzing, may indicate a problem with the coil.
Warm or humid air: If you notice warm or humid air circulating instead of cool air, it could indicate a problem with the evaporator coil.
System shutdown: Lastly, a frozen evaporator coil can cause the system to shut down. Failing to get this fixed as soon as possible could damage your system and require an evaporator coil replacement or a complete system replacement.
The best way to avoid these and other HVAC problems are by scheduling annual AC evaporator coil cleaning and HVAC maintenance by a trained professional.

Our Evaporator Coil Replacement
Like your HVAC system, the individual components require annual maintenance and service to keep them working as long as possible. On average, your evaporator coil should last as long as your air conditioner — about 10 to 20 years. However, factors like its operating environment and maintenance routine will affect its lifespan.
You should consider replacing the evaporator coil and your entire HVAC system if it’s over ten years old. Also, if you require frequent, expensive repairs, replacing the worn-out part is typically more cost-effective than fixing it constantly.
