Mounted to the interior of your automobile, you will find the evaporator unit for your vehicle’s air conditioning system. The warm air inside the interior of your car is absorbed by this part. After running through the evaporator, it evaporates via the evaporator coil. Along with the refrigerant, heat is carried off. From there, the condenser takes over to cool air and, as a result, your vehicle’s interior.
A car A/C evaporator works the same whether it is mounted below the dash, behind the dash, or as a built-in part.
Automotive A/C Evaporators
The chance of needing a new evaporator in a car is pretty slim. Unfortunately, this component’s life can be shortened due to a number of factors. Corrosion can be caused by moisture created by and developed within the air conditioning system. Due to the metallic makeup of an evaporator, this can present a problem. The evaporator may also experience coolant being leaked onto it from another component in the A/C system. On the evaporator core, damaged outer seams can cause leaks.
It is important to keep your entire air conditioning system as clean as possible, but a clean evaporator is essential for proper A/C operation. At least twice every year (once if you don’t use your vehicle very often), the A/C evaporator in your vehicle should be cleaned.
Finding the Right AC Evaporator for Your Automobile
While you can find a lot of information you need for the care of your vehicle in the owner’s manual, you can’t find everything all the time. When it comes to components for your air conditioning system, you’ll probably need to talk to either a certified automotive technician, a dealer, or a company that specifically sells/deals in automotive air conditioning components.
By supplying them with the make, model, and year of your car – and any other engine specifications that may apply – they’ll be able to tell you which part is needed (i.e., part number, cost, shipping specifications, etc.).
Unless you are extremely good at working on automobiles, you may want to leave this job to the professionals. It’s labor-intensive and can point to other problems that exist – or will soon exist – within your vehicle’s air conditioning system. A certified automotive technician will not only repair the problem with the evaporator, but they’ll also be able to potentially head off any other problems that may be in the works.
