What is a Condenser Coil?
The condenser coil is one of two coils in your air conditioning or heat pump system, in which heat is removed from the refrigerant. Once the refrigerant is pressurized and heated in the compressor, it enters the condenser coil. The refrigerant will transfer its heat into the air blowing over it, cool and turn into liquid. The air around the coil will warm and blow outside the unit.
What are the symptoms of a dirty condenser coil?
When the condenser coil is dirty, the system will run inefficiently due to higher temperatures and pressure and result in higher compression ratios.
How much does it cost to replace a condenser coil?
A condenser coil will cost between $400 - $1200 to replace, although regional pricing and professional rates may vary from area to area.
