Cooling Coils in Colorado & Wyoming
A cooling coil (also called an evaporator coil) is the workhorse for your central air conditioner. It’s the set of pipes that physically absorbs the heat from your home’s air and moves it outside. You’ll usually find it inside your air handler or attached to your furnace, and most of the time, it’s surrounded by metal fins that help to dissipate the heat that your cooling coil absorbs.
However, cooling coils require regular maintenance to function at their best. Here are some frequently asked questions about Rheem cooling coils and information on where to get cooling coil maintenance in Colorado and Wyoming.

If the air that comes out of your cooling vents is warm, your AC isn’t cooling your home properly, you find refrigerant leaking from your air conditioner, or your air conditioner is making hissing or banging sounds, your cooling coil may be to blame. The good news is that Rheem cooling coils are easy to repair and replace.
A high-quality evaporator coil (like the one Rheem Pro Partners offers) should be replaced every 10 to 15 years or sooner if it fails. In general, we recommend replacing a cooling coil as soon as it develops a leak. You can extend the lifespan of your Rheem cooling coils by keeping your air conditioning system tuned up and regularly cleaning your air filters.
The number one issue that cooling coils face is corrosion. Because most cooling coils are made up of copper tubes, they are prone to a form of rust called formicary corrosion. This can cause tiny leaks in your cooling coil, allowing the refrigerant to escape slowly from the tubing. This also reduces the pressure of the refrigerant inside the cooling coils, reducing your air conditioner’s power even further.
If your Rheem evaporator coils get dirty, your air conditioner won’t function efficiently. Dirty coils can increase your air conditioner’s energy use by more than 30%. More than that, the buildup of dirt and dust on your cooling coils can dramatically shorten the life of your air conditioner. The coils may even end up freezing in the middle of summer, which may, in turn, cause a lengthy air conditioner breakdown.
One of the best things you can do to keep your cooling coils from getting dirty is to replace your AC unit’s air filter every month. You should also schedule AC tune-ups at least twice a year. Thankfully, Rheem Pro Partners is ready to clean your cooling coils for you.
