What’s the Importance of an Evaporator Coil?
The evaporator coil and condenser coils make the heat exchange possible, which is how you get cold or warm air in your house.
The evaporator coil is the part of an air conditioner or heat pump that absorbs heat from the air in your house. This component typically lies in the air handler or is attached to the furnace.
As air from the blower fan moves over the coil, the refrigerant inside removes the heat from the air. With the refrigerant now warmed, it passes to the outdoor condenser coils. In a heat pump, this process works in reverse to give you warm air during the winter.
As you can see, the evaporator coil plays a critical role in maintaining the desired temperature in your house and keeping you and your family comfortable. If this part breaks down develops issues, you must call in a professional for service as soon as possible.
Signs You Need Evaporator Coil Repair
Although most air conditioners operate for years without issue, they tend to malfunction more as they age, and often the problem lies within the evaporator coil. Here are the most common signs that your evaporator coil needs repair or replacement.
- Warm air blows through the vents
- The air conditioner turns on and off rapidly and doesn’t provide the desired cooling
- You hear strange sounds coming from your system, such as grinding, rattling, or hissing
- You notice there are leaks around the system
- The air conditioner fails to kick on
While it feels good to fix things around the house yourself, sometimes a repair is best left to the professionals, and AC evaporator coil repair is one of those instances. At KC’s 23 ½ Hour Plumbing & Air Conditioning, we have over 40 years of air conditioner repair in Palm Springs.

Our AC Evaporator Coil Cleaning Service
There’s no telling how hot it can get during summer in the Coachella Valley, but suffice to say, no one wants to be without an air conditioner during the hot months. Maintaining your air conditioner is crucial for keeping you and your family comfortable all summer long.
Because the evaporator coil plays a critical role in your air conditioner’s function, it’s essential to keep it clean. Dirty evaporator coils can increase the amount of energy your AC uses by up to 30 percent and lead to poor cooling performance.
The best way to keep your air conditioner in top form is by scheduling annual maintenance with a licensed HVAC professional. KC’s 23 ½ Hour Plumbing & Air Conditioning has served Palm Springs homeowners since 1980 with guaranteed AC maintenance and repair services.
