Evaporator Airflow Restriction
Airflow is one of the most overlooked aspects when diagnosing a HVAC system. Poor airflow can have disasterous consequences on your system. Both the condenser and evaporator are designed to operate with a specific amount of airflow and when that is disrupted, the system will not perform as efficiently or at all. When airflow is restricted in the evaporator, it could cause the TXV to overfeed and damage the compressor. The most common cause of evaporator airflow restriction is from dirty filters. All too often people will install them and forget about them. This is because the system will continue to work for some time. Replacing filters regularly is one of the easiest ways to save money on energy bills and future repair expenses. Airflow may also be restricted from dirty coils. Living in humid areas like Orlando can produce mold on the coils and needs to be cleaned regularly. Airflow may also be restricted from obstructed blower wheels and grills as well as leaking and/or undersized ducts. One way to tell that you have an airflow restriction is if your evaporator coil is frozen. Our competition may just thaw your coil and add refrigerant to your system and be on their way. Melco HVAC Services of Orlando will inspect and determine the cause of the airflow restriction. Without a leak in the seal system, it is difficult to be low on refrigerant. We will ensure the same issue does not happen a few months down the road. Contact us today and receive a free diagnosis when you decide to have the repair completed by us.
