The Evaporator Coil and Refrigerant

This past week has been the hottest week on record.

  • When enjoying the news the other day I thought the meteorologist was exaggerating.

Periodically weather people get the weather wrong, especially where I live. During the winter time they’ll call for a big blizzard however then it’ll just be two inches of snow on the ground. Last week they called for a big rainstorm with flooding. Needless to say, their prediction was wrong once again. Therefore I thought this big heat wave that was supposed to be coming wasn’t actually going to happen. Well I was wrong and the meteorologist predicted right. I was rather impressed by their predictions this time around. It was an unfortunate event that my Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system decided to shut down on me during this very warm week. I called my Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C provider and asked if I could get an appointment that day. Unfortunately she told me that I couldn’t because she was so swamped with other appointments due to the weather. Two days later she showed up at my house. At this point I was dripping with sweat, bought portable fans and had my windows open to circulate air. The Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C professional diagnosed out my system. It turned out the evaporator coil on my a/c unit was not filled with refrigerant. She told me that this pressing since the evaporator coil is what changes the refrigerant from a liquid to a gas as it absorbs heat form the air. After she fixed the system, my house was back to its normal temperature and I wasn’t dripping with sweat anymore.
