Evaporator Motor Replacement
Today's air conditioning systems may come with a number of different evaporator motor types, particularly as the efficiency increases. Until recently, most evaporator motors were standard, single speed motors. As the efficiency requirements increased, so did the technology within the HVAC industry. In addition to coil surface area, another opportunity to increase efficiency with a heating and cooling system is the motors. Electronically commutated motors or ECM's were developed and we primarily see these with the X-13 and variable speed motors. These motors adjust up and down depending on the required airflow. Some other benefits of variable speed blower motors are increased comfort because of humidity removal. When humidity is high, the fan will run at a low speed, thus pulling more moisture from the air. This increase in technology does also require an increase knowledge of these systems and how they work and although technology has increased, the parts can still fail. An evaporator blower motor may have failed because they run very hot, some in excess of 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of the difference of the ambient temperature surrounding the motor, condensation is created. This can cause corrosion and a premature failure. Other forces such as electrical surges may also cause a failure. In the event of a evaporator motor failure, it is important to hire an Orlando air conditioning company that understands the differences between these motors to offer the appropriate solutions. Melco HVAC Services of Orlando trains technicians daily to ensure that if your blower motor fails, it will be replaced with the appropriate match and installed with perfection.
