Your air conditioner holds the key to your comfort as the summer months heat up. Before the temperature starts to rise, we recommend scheduling an AC tune-up in Charlotte and Hickory. Not only will it ensure your comfort, but it will also ensure you remain compliant with any warranty requirements established by the manufacturer.
Failing to do so can be catastrophic, just as failing to choose the right company to do business with can cost you serious money. Sky HVAC is proud to be able to serve all of your air conditioning and heating needs. We are locally owned and operated and are focused on great customer service, hiring knowledgeable technicians, and showing you how an honest company does business.
The evaporator coil is the part of your AC that absorbs the heat in your house. It is located inside the blower compartment or the air handler and holds the chilled refrigerant that is moved from the compressor. In an air conditioning unit, the air is blown over the coil and the refrigerant removes the heat. As the refrigerant removes the heat, it becomes warmer and goes back to the condenser coils. When heat is needed, this process is reversed.
Having your evaporator coil cleaned is a basic part of air conditioner maintenance, whether your unit is residential or commercial. A dirty evaporator coil can lead to many issues, and oftentimes will make it seem like you are in need of a new unit. Sky HVAC knows better and won’t tell you that a new unit is needed until the evaporator coil has been checked and cleaned. Some common problems associated with a dirty evaporator coil can include:
The last thing we want is for you to call some other HVAC company and be told that you’re in need of a new AC system, when really, your evaporator coil is dirty. Of course, we can’t guarantee that this is the problem, but we will definitely consider it before moving forward. In the event that you do need a new air conditioner, we offer 0% APR financing for 36 months. As always, we are available 24 hours a day and offer flat-rate pricing for all work.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an evaporator coil and what does it do?
An evaporator coil is the air conditioner or heat pump component that absorbs the heat from the air in your house. It is positioned inside the air handler or attached to the furnace.
Why should I maintain my evaporator coil?
Dirt, dust, and debris on your evaporator coils makes it more difficult for your equipment to transfer heat. Since it is working harder, it uses more energy and reduces the lifespan of your AC components. Also, dirty coils can become corroded which leads to refrigerant leaks.
How can you tell if an evaporator coil is bad?
There are several indicators that your evaporator coil needs attention like: warm air from the vents; uneven cooling; frequent starts and stops; no power; refrigerant leaks; and abnormal noises near the cooling system (hissing or banging).
The Sky HVAC preventative maintenance program includes a 21-point inspection twice a year - once in the spring and once in the fall. We make sure your HVAC system is running at peak performance by checking amp draws, refrigerant levels, etc., which will save you on energy cost. We inspect critical components (motors, capacitors, condenser coils, and compressor) thus ensuring system reliability.
We will also conduct a full inspection of your duct system to make sure there are no air leaks that can be responsible for reduced airflow. An HVAC tune-up will ensure that your air conditioning system will be running as efficiently as possible and give your peace of mind!
