The Importance of Condenser Coil Maintenance

Condenser Coil MaintenanceRegular maintenance of your commercial cooling unit is essential for it to work efficiently in all seasons.  A properly serviced system ensures that it will operate when you want it to.

Among the most critical operating parts of the unit are the condenser coil and the evaporator coil. When working properly, these components ensure that the refrigeration system is working at peak efficiency. A dirty, corroded, or leaking condenser coil or malfunctioning evaporator coil can be expensive to replace and could potentially cost your company business for a period of time.

It helps to know how important it is to maintain these components of your commercial cooling unit. Your unit may be manufactured by Trane, at which you will want to stick to Trane condenser coil replacement or condenser coil replacement parts. Regardless of the manufacturer, you should become familiar with these important functional parts of your cooling unit.

Different Roles

The condenser and evaporator coils handle different roles in the cooling process. When working properly, they ensure a comfortable commercial environment.

The condenser coil is part of a unit that includes tubes and fins, the compressor, a fan, and valves and switches. Warm refrigerant gas enters the compressor, turning it into a hot, high-pressure gas. The gas leaves the compressor and flows into the condenser coils, where the refrigerant gas releases the heat absorbed from the building. The unit fan blows air over the condenser coils, releasing the heat.

The evaporator coil is where the cold air comes from. As the cooling unit runs, the compressor draws cold, low-pressure liquid refrigerant through the evaporator coil tubing. As the refrigerant flows, a fan draws the hot air over the cold evaporator coil system, where the passing air is absorbed.

Dirty Coils

The nature of their tasks means the coils over time will accumulate dirt from the air and corrosion from water vapor. Dirty and corroded coils can cause the cooling unit to run harder, increasing energy consumption and causing higher bills. Dust and debris can interfere with the ability of the condenser to transfer heat, and a dirty evaporator coil can accumulate frost and cause the unit to fail.

Maintenance Is Key

Proper and regular maintenance is the best approach to keeping the condenser and evaporator coils of your commercial cooling unit operating properly and extending their longevity. Your local Trane HVAC technician can advise you on when to schedule your unit’s maintenance and recommend if Trane evaporator coil replacement or condenser coil replacement parts are the best servicing option to keep your commercial cooling unit in peak operating condition.
