Evaporator Coils in Riverside, CA, and Surrounding Areas
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler. The evaporator coils are a series of piping connected to a furnace or air handler that blows indoor air across it, causing the coil to absorb heat from the air. The cooled air is then delivered to the house through ducting. The refrigerant then flows back to the compressor where the cycle starts over again.
Thermal transfer is a major component in the operation and performance of an air conditioning or heat pump product. One simple job of the refrigerant in an air conditioning or heat pump system is to transfer heat—and remove humidity—from the indoor air. Because the majority of thermal transfer occurs in the condenser and evaporator coils, the Amana engineers readily accepted the challenge of optimizing thermal transfer in the condenser coils for products that use R-410A refrigerant. After all, the heritage of the Amana brand involves the design of energy-saving, money-saving, and resource-saving heating and cooling systems. In their quest, Amana’s engineers quickly resolved that the thermophysical properties of R-410A refrigerant are a great match for the heat transfer characteristics of 5mm diameter copper tubing. Scientific theory aside, it’s easy to see why smaller tubing in the condenser coil optimizes heat transfer.
