Proper air conditioner installation has never been more important!
Evaporator coils made over the past few years are earning a reputation as “pure garbage” according to many, local to Fort Myers, air conditioning contractors. The coils being made today, having copper tubing and aluminum fins, are proving themselves to have a very high failure rate. Whether due to poor engineering, low quality materials, or even “planned obsolescence” is unclear, but, one thing is for certain …
… air conditioner coils manufactured in the past three to five years are definitely
not lasting as long as their predecessors!
One major, name brand, air conditioner manufacturer has a class action law suit filed against them due to their high evaporator coil failure rate.
The replacement coils now are mostly all aluminum like this replacement coil on the top. I’ve replaced more evaporator coils that are anywhere from 8 months to 7/8 years old in the past three years than I have replaced in the past 30 years! The coil pictured on the bottom in the picture below is a Bryant evaporator coil about 7-8 years old. Bryant has always had an exceptional reputation for quality and durability, and in the past a typical lifespan for a coil such as the one pictured below would be ten to 15 years at a minimum with proper installation and maintenance. In some cases we are now seeing coils fail after only 7 or 8 MONTHS of service …. and in my opinion that is a disgrace!
With all of that being said I am going to go out on a limb and say that the air conditioner running your home RIGHT NOW is the toughest and most durable piece of air conditioning equipment you may ever own for the rest of your life … if you are talking air conditioners they just ain’t making them like they used to. With that in mind, it is now more important than ever to have your equipment serviced regularly, and installed not just properly, but, with genuine care. You want to be certain to use a licensed, qualified contractor in order for your product warranty to be valid, and additionally … make certain that licensed, qualified contractor does his part in processing the paper work that puts your new air conditioner equipment’s warranty into effect. At Community Cooling we truly believe that attention to detail is a main ingredient in providing value to our customers whether it applies to our technicians work in the field, the paper work in the office, or the level of customer service we provide either in your home or on the phone!
