What Causes Evaporator Coils to Leak?
Acid is created when moisture and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are released into the air from common household cleaners, air fresheners, and aerosol.
This acid creates tiny holes in the evaporator coil, and refrigerant leaks out. This leaking is not always easy to detect just by looking at it. Not only is this leaking refrigerant bad for your air conditioner, but it is also bad for your health. That’s why repairing these tiny leaks in your evaporator coil should be repaired or replaced as soon as you notice a problem.
How to Tell If Your Evaporator Coil Is Bad
Do you notice warm air coming from the vents in your home when the AC is set to be on? This is a telltale sign that there is likely a problem with your evaporator coil.
Second, if there is water leaking from the unit itself, this could be due to a pinhole leak in your evaporator coil.
Finally, take a look at the copper lines which lead to the unit. If the line looks to be frozen or covered in ice, the evaporator coil might be failing.
