Believe it or not, without one of these your air conditioner would be completely useless. Why? Because an air conditioner doesn’t blog cold air into your home. An air conditioner compresses a gas called refrigerant, and condenses it down to a chilled liquid. The cold refrigerant is then pumped inside to the—you guessed it—evaporator coil.
An evaporator coil is made up of metal tubing to house the cold refrigerant sent from the air conditioner. The fan motor in the furnace pulls warm air from the home, and forces it through the chilled evaporator coil. When this happens, heat energy is absorbed by the refrigerant which turns it back into a gas. The now cooled air is distributed back into the home. An evaporator coil’s efficiency can be hurt when mold grows in the damp coil interior. You see, when the heat energy transfer happens, moisture condensates on the coil.
A UV lamp installed in the coil will kill surface mold, and protect cooling efficiency.
