Some call the evaporator coil the “unsung hero” of your home’s air conditioning system. On a hot summer day in The Woodlands, your air conditioner works hard to compress refrigerant which condenses it down to a chilled liquid. This cold refrigerant is pumped inside, and is used to absorb heat energy from your indoor air, which is what cools your home.
As you may have guessed, the evaporator coil is what holds the cold refrigerant from the air conditioner. The fan motor from the furnace pulls warm air from the home, and forces it through the evaporator coil. The air is cooled, and sent back into the home.
An enemy of the coil is mold. You see, when heat energy is moved from the air to the refrigerant, water condensates on the coil. This dark, damp interior is a nice little breeding spot for mold, and if that happens, air conditioning efficiency and air quality are threatened. A UV lamp kills airborne and surface mold, and is a cost effective way to protect your comfort and your home’s indoor air.
