The evaporating unit coils of an evaporating system can sometimes be bent or broken. These units can be dangerous to touch, especially in older homes or when they aren’t properly maintained. If you notice this problem, it’s probably best to have the evaporating system inspected by a professional. A good technician should know what to look for to determine if the coil is in need of repair. In some cases, the evaporator coil is simply too hard to reach, and should be cleaned properly.
Evaporator coils are usually located near the exterior of the home and are difficult to reach with a standard wrench towing device. This may mean that you have to hire a professional to take care of this issue. Unfortunately, many times the coils themselves are also the first part of the cooling equipment to break down. While a professional will be able to inspect the evaporator coils to determine if they need to be replaced, you’ll likely have to get them repaired on your own. Before you attempt to repair the coils themselves, you’ll need to check for signs of deterioration, and also to see if they are corroded or damaged at all.
As previously mentioned, the coils themselves are often a safety concern. If the coils have been improperly installed, you may have to pay someone to come in and install them for you. Also, in many cases, the evaporating unit itself may be damaged and require replacement. This can be expensive, as well as dangerous. If you’re not sure what damage has been done to the evaporating coils themselves, you should call a professional to come and see what needs to be done. Most professional companies will be able to provide you with a warranty on their work, so you won’t have to worry about repairs and replacements again.
