The coil does a lot
The condenser coil is in the largest outdoor air conditioning unit.
It receives the high pressure and temperature refrigerant of the AC compressor, and you can guess it is the opposite of the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil contains chilly refrigerant while the entire condenser coil contrans hot refrigerant. The condenser coil is where the heat is easily detached from the refrigerant. After the gas refrigerant is pressurized and properly heated in the compressor, it enters the condenser coil. Two things then happen. The volume of gas refrigerant transfers its heat to the air blowing over it. Simultaneously, the refrigerant easily cools and turns into a liquid. The air around the coil will begin to heat up and is blown out of the outdoor unit! Condenser coils need to be properly cleaned on a routine basis in order to continue functioning respectfully for long periods of time. A very dirty condenser coil can lead to inefficient performance and shortened system life. Over increased time, the refrigerant flowing through the evaporator’s coils wears down the inner lining and makes the coils structurally much weaker. Certain coil cleaners can also corrode and weaken the entire outer lining of the coils. The weaker the coils, the more prone they are to developing terrible refrigerant leaks. With the switch to R-410a refrigerant, systems that need the brand new condenser coil replaced often have to replace the lineset and evaporator coil as well. This fact is because aged R-22 refrigerants cannot mix with R-410A. When a company eventually tells you that an entire system needs replacing in this situation, do not guess that they are trying to swindle you. Some issues that can occur by mismatching your condenser and evaporator, and you should have it checked by a professional so you guess exactly what to do.
