How an Evaporator Coil Can Ease Your Buffalo Winter

Serving as the ‘Heat Exchanger,’ it Keeps Your Home Comfortable All Season Long

An evaporator coil is one of the hardest working components of your whole house heating system. Evaporator coils are used in oil and gas-based furnaces to absorb heat when air passes through the unit. That freshly conditioned air is then pumped throughout the house via fans and blowers and into your living areas.

Evaporator coils look like a series of, well, “coiled” pipes or tubes. Its chief function, heat transfer, is one of the most vital factors in achieving the high levels of heating performance and efficiency that will keep your home comfortable all winter long.

How It Works

Your evaporator coil lives inside your furnace and is one of its most important components. Inside the coil itself, the refrigerant evaporates (hence the name) as it absorbs heat from the air that passes through it. The evaporator coil essentially serves as the “heat exchanger” of your whole house heating system.

Keeping It Clean

A dirty evaporator coil can be bad news. It can decrease both the efficiency and the overall performance of your furnace. In order to keep your system running at design performance, it is critical that you have your coil serviced and cleaned regularly. Since they’re usually difficult to access, evaporator coils are easy to ignore until the problem becomes noticeable and you realize your furnace isn’t keeping you warm. Remember, a clean evaporator coil will yield higher performance and cleaner, warmer air in your home all winter long.
