What is an evaporator?
An evaporator is a component of refrigeration and air conditioning units that converts refrigerant from liquid to gas creating a cold surface. Warm air is transferred across the surface to create the cooled air that is transferred to the room or cabinet.
Evaporators can get very dirty and blocked with grime and debris. Refrigerator, cold room, and cellar cooler doors that are left open for significant periods can also cause the evaporator to become affected by a build up of ice as cold air escapes and warm air enters. Dirty and obstructed evaporators can reduce efficiency and increase energy usage by as much as 30%. These obstructions can also lead to poor cooling performance and overheating.
Regular evaporator cleaning is essential to ensure that ice and dirt is removed to improve performance and remove any bacteria in the evaporator, this will in turn reduce the bacteria in any water feeding into the drain lines when the unit is on defrost. When the water settles in the drip or condensate tray, the bacterial growth will be at a minimum, reducing the chances of any blockages or water leaks.
