All About AC Coils: What’s an Evaporator Coil? What’s a Condenser Coil?

Not sure if you know the difference between an AC evaporator coil and a condenser coil? Air conditioner evaporator coils and air conditioner condenser coils may sound similar, but have very different roles to play. Here’s some background information about the inside of your air conditioner unit:

Evaporator coils and condenser coils are two crucial components in most air conditioning systems because they are responsible for the heat transfer process. The evaporator coil is located inside your home and is responsible for absorbing heat from the air as it passes over the coil. After the air passes over the coil, the cold air is then blown back into your home and processed through an indoor air handling unit. The air handler distributes the cool air into your ventilation system while the warm refrigerant gas is sent to the outdoor condenser unit.

The condenser coil is located in the outdoor unit and is responsible for releasing the heat absorbed by the refrigerant inside the evaporator coil. As the refrigerant gas enters the condenser coil, it’s compressed, causing it to become hot. The hot refrigerant gas then flows through the condenser coil, where it releases the heat that it absorbed from your home’s air. The heat is released into the outdoor air, and the refrigerant is cooled back down and sent back to the indoor evaporator coil to start the heat transfer process once again.

It’s important to clean air conditioner coils regularly. Frozen evaporator coils make it difficult for your air conditioner to cool your home, while dirty condenser coils reduce the system’s ability to expel heat. Both problems can lead to system failure and the need for costly AC unit repairs if left unaddressed.

Our AC Evaporator Coil Cleaning & Condenser Coil Cleaning Process

When you call us for air conditioner coil cleaning services in Sussex County, DE, we begin with an evaluation of your heat pump, ductless AC, or central air conditioning unit. We will look over your entire AC system, from the air handler unit to the blower fan to the electrical components and everywhere in between. Once we’ve had a clear look at what’s happening, our air conditioner coil cleaning professionals will pop open the removable access panel, remove the evaporator coil assembly, and get to work!

We utilize a variety of techniques for evaporator and condenser coil cleaning. We apply industry-grade disinfectant products, such as our super-effective foaming coil cleaner, to kill mold and mildew and use a specialized brush to remove dirt and debris. Our team may also use compressed air, a spray bottle, and a high-pressure water spray to blast away any stubborn residue that is hard to remove from outdoor condenser coils. For evaporator coil cleaning, we will remove the coil and place it in a specialized commercial cleaner solution that will dissolve away any buildup or residue. All of our cleaning methods are designed to be effective while also being gentle on your unit, and they don’t cost a fortune, either!

After evaporator and condenser coil cleaning is complete, our team will reassemble your AC condenser unit and conduct a thorough inspection to ensure that your air conditioner coils are working as they should be. We will then test your system to make sure it is functioning efficiently and effectively. If we notice any issues with your HVAC system during our inspection, we will address them immediately so that your AC unit can continue running smoothly.

At the end of the cleaning process, our team will provide you with a detailed service report that includes any issues we may have found with your AC unit and any recommendations we have for maintenance or repairs. And just like that, those dirty coils have been dealt with!

Signs You Need Help From Air Conditioner Coil Cleaning Professionals

Many homeowners notice early signs of AC system failure, but not everyone knows when they need coil cleaning. If you see any of these tell-tale signs of dirty coils, call our AC coil cleaning professionals right away:

Reduced Cooling Performance

If your air conditioner is not cooling your home as well as it used to, it may be a sign that your AC coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Since the condenser coil is housed inside the outdoor unit, dirt and debris can end up building up over time. This reduces the efficiency of your system, making it work harder to cool your home. Since the evaporator coil is located within the indoor unit, it’s not exposed to dirt as consistently, but it can still wind up sucking in debris from your home, such as pet hair, human hair, and dust bunnies, which can negatively affect indoor air quality.

Poor Airflow

If it seems like the airflow from your air conditioning system has decreased, it may be due to dirty AC coils. Without regular outdoor and indoor unit cleanings, your AC unit will inevitably fill up with dirt, dust, and other debris. We utilize compressed air, coil cleaning solution, and other air conditioning cleaning products to ensure that your outdoor condenser coil and indoor evaporator coil can vent cooler air throughout your space.

Warm Air

If your air conditioner is blowing warm air instead of cool air, it could be a sign of condenser coil problems. Your outdoor condenser coil is responsible for releasing the heat absorbed by the refrigerant, and if the coil fins are clogged with dirt, dander, and dust, they can’t effectively release heat to perform the cooling process. Eventually, this can result in hot air blowing from your vents — even when you have the AC cranked up to the max. We can safely remove the dirt and dust from your air conditioner coils so that your AC unit runs smoothly once again.

Increased Energy Bills

If you notice a sudden spike in your energy bills, it may be time to clean your AC coils. Dirty coils can cause your air conditioning unit to work harder than necessary to cool your home, resulting in decreased energy efficiency and increased energy costs. If you’ve never considered the cost of your increased bills versus our average AC coil cleaning cost, it’s time to start running the numbers. Those underperforming coils could be costing you big time and compromising cooling capacity!

Unpleasant Odors

If you’ve smelled a strange odor coming from your air conditioning system, it may be due to dirty coils. Dirt and debris in or on your AC coils (or growing inside the air handler enclosure) can lead to musty, unpleasant odors when the system is running. This microbial growth isn’t just a nuisance for your nose, either. Breathing in mold and mildew can be toxic to your family members, so this issue should be handled ASAP. We’ll clean your AC coils thoroughly to remove these toxins and restore your unit’s cooling capacity.

Get your coils cleaned today by the Top Flight team and say sayonara to that dirty-socks smell! We will clean out your AC unit using special foaming cleaners and compressed air, then replace your AC filters before double-checking that any mold and dirt buildup is taken care of.

Short Cycling

“Short cycling” is the term for when your air conditioning system turns on and off frequently. This often happens as a result of a dirty condenser coil, which can cause your system to overheat and stop the air conditioning process prematurely. Book AC unit cleaning now, and we will make sure your AC unit can operate without these annoying hiccups.

Ice Buildup on Air Conditioner Coils

If you notice ice buildup on the refrigerant lines or the evaporator coil, it’s never a good sign. Over time, as the aforementioned dirt and debris accumulate, they can end up insulating the coils, causing them to freeze over. This problem will both make your system work harder AND compromise your energy efficiency, which can cost you more money on energy bills.

UPDATE: Tyler was just out to service our AC for the first time. Just like Ryan he took the time to explain everything he was going to do and answered all of my questions.As a new customer and and not having a gas furnace prior, Ryan took the time to explain what he was doing and how the system worked. He was very knowledgeable and professional.I would have no problem recommending Top Flight to any of my neighbors.

Tyler from TopFlight was fantastic. He earned a new service subscription customer.A prior tech from Air Temp solutions left the previously working system disabled and not working. Their follow up tech quoted $1,250 for a new thermostat and thermostatic board. Needless to say I searched for another company.Tyler diagnosed a simple but easily overlooked problem. The system was restored with only a service call.Big call out to Tyler and Top Flight!

Isaiah was my technician who performed a routine AC checkup. He was professional, knowledgeable, and polite. I was impressed with the service so I signed up for the annual plan and have high expectations if I ever run into any issues. Top flight was recommended by a friend who had issues and used several companies that couldn’t fix the problem before finding Topflight that did fix the problem.

We had Top Flight install a new HVAC system. Isaiah and Tyler were great at the installation. They cleaned up after the job which was nice. The plus is the system is nice and quiet compared to our old system and the balancing they did reduced the temperature extremes in our upstairs vs downstairs.

Very professional and explained everything. I love the fact that they gave me different quotes and I did not feel like they were just trying to get money from me. Our house is only 4 years old and have had nothing but problems with the company that put the system in the house. I FINALLY have peace of mind knowing it was done right. I also really liked the yearly maintenance contract and it was not a crazy amout of money. Thank you for your trained technicians.

The other day, when temperatures were in the teens, I woke up to 54 degrees in my house. I went on line to look up HVAC services and saw that Top Flight had many excellent reviews. So I called them. A couple of hours later, Isaiah and Tyler came to my house. I have to say that it was one of the best experiences, if not the best, that I have ever had with a contractor or service person. They were here all day. Isaiah explained everything to me in detail and encouraged me to ask questions. He was so patient and so nice. Of course, they fixed the problem and gave me some good advice. He was very professional but easy going and well-informed. Also, the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend this company.

We were going through a total nightmare trying to find a company to fix our HVAC system. We tried 3 different companies that took our money and left us with a system that would stop working within a month after they said it was fixed. Top flight found the problem the 1st time they looked at it. It's now been running for almost a year with no problems. Isiah and this company are the best. We highly recommend them. Thank you Top Flight.

As new customers with Top Flight, we were visited by Ryan for an initial system inspection and a review of the various customer programs that Top Flight offered.While Ryan's extensive experience and knowledge of our HVAC system were clearly evident, his ability to explain and demonstrate issues or items in normal, understandable ways impressed us the most as a new customer.Top Flight's office staff has been equally helpful. Christina, in particular, has been exceptionally helpful with all our new customer setups and arrangements.We highly recommend that Top Flight be included in anyone's short-list of an Honest and Polite Customer-Focused service from a well-established local firm.

Average. (I don't give extra stars to companies who demonstrate basic professionalism in being on time or having reasonable customer service). This company is VERY EXPENSIVE! They offer a discount to customers to "become members," which makes their service (which includes way more service than I want or need) appear cheaper by charging smaller monthly payments which add up to much more over a year than others charge for 2 annual maintenance checks. ($420/year for an 1800 sf house, compared to $180/year for the same sized house in Maryland.) This monthly payment plan makes it very difficult to track what service is already paid for and what is being prepaid. Thus they have pioneered a way to keep their hand in your wallet for months after the service has already been provided. No thanks. I don't buy it. They did allow me to cancel -which is apparently unusual for them- although they did not provide a refund for payments I made already for service that I won't get.

What can I say.....BEST HVAC COMPANY EVER! Since moving to this area I have be unable to find a company to actually listen to me and do proper work. Upon a recommendation from a friend I tried this company out and I was not disappointed. Ryan was extremely professional in diagnosing and fixing my issue. He made the whole process easy and as painless as possible. He gave me many options on new systems and even informed me on state and federal rebates in our area. Isaiah is an excellent technician who loves this work and really did an amazing job. He is also by far the most polite server provider I've ever had in my house period. Taylor rounded out this trio and made this an amazing experience. I'd recommend this company to anyone who doesn't want to be pressured by pushy sales people, "know it all" technicians, and "I know better than you" owners.

One of the only companies in the county you can trust to do a honest job in the hvac industry. I had three companies out to try and fix my issue and they either failed to diagnose it properly or lied and said it was an expensive repair in order to upsell a brand new unit. Isaiah quickly identified a bare wire shorting out against a copper pipe in the fan unit and fixed it charging me the proper amount for the service . He is a young smart and determined technician, but most of all he is honest.

In a nutshell, this company is fantastic!If you're still reading I'm going to elaborate on just why that is. We opened a new small business here in Lewes, DE and when we went seeking a local company to take care of our system they came highly recommended. Ryan reached out to me directly on Facebook to introduce himself and the team. Vey quickly he set me up with Taylor who got the ball rolling. She listened to what we were looking for and sent Mike out to have a look. He was professional and knowledgable in his diagnosis of our newly installed system. For no charge they told me what needed to be repaired and we set a day to do so. Mike and Josh came back (sooner than the appointment time I might add) and did a thorough job gettin our system up and running. Ryan and I talked again about the work and he gave us a very fair price.I am now a subscribing customer and intend to be so long as we are doing business here. I have nothing but great things to say about the entire experience and strongly recommend this team to any business in the state!
