Aircon Evaporator Cleaned For Bacteria HAC Rockhampton

Car air-conditioning evaporators are a breeding ground for all things nasty. You breathe the air that struggles through its filthy fins, get it cleaned.

The Two Schools of Evaporator Odour Elimination

The evaporator is located behind the dash panel in air boxes where all cabin air is circulated from. It is a potential breeding place for bacteria, micro-organisms and even mould or fungi. Foul odours can be masked with airborne treatments but the only way to have a clean evaporator is to remove it and clean it properly.


Car Air-conditioner Evaporator Issues

The role of the car aircon evaporator in your A/C system is to evaporate refrigerant liquid to a gas, and in doing so actually removes heat from the air which is constantly flowing through it's fins.

The car air conditioner evaporator in your A/C system evaporates the refrigerant liquid to a gas, and in doing so actually removes heat from the air flowing through it which is what gives us that crisp cool air inside the cabin.

As car A/C systems are made smaller and more efficient, so are their components. One of the components that has undergone a major size reduction over the years is the evaporator, located under the dashboard. This component is much like a radiator in design and is responsible for removing the heat and moisture from the cabin air.

Car air-conditioner evaporators can leak due to internal and external corrosion, and in this event, they must be replaced. This type of repair can take anywhere from an hour or two, right up to ten hours, depending on the type of car and the complications arising from removing and replacing the dash board. Regular maintenance will usually extend the life of your evaporator.

What are the Main Causes of an Evaporator Leak?

  • 1. Damaged Outer Connection Seal. Most leaks are due to a damaged outer seal on the evaporator core.
  • 2. Corrosion. It’s also quite common for corrosion inside the evaporator core to cause seals to leak. Corrosion occurs when debris finds a way into the air intake such as dirt caused by damaged or clogged air filters.
  • 3. The Connection between Coil and Core. Another leak source is the connection between the ac evaporator coil and the core. If a leak is detected, replacement of the entire A/C evaporator is the correct course of action.
Be mindful there is no quick fix for Evaporator problems, the expensive part is removal of the dash board to have access to the air box housing the Evaporator core. This can take from 1 hour to 10 hours depending on the make and type of vehicle. We are happy to inspect and quote up front.

Our expert advice

We recommend using your car's air conditioning system all year round. It is best to run the system for at least 10 minutes every month to keep the seals lubricated and so prevent leakage. Regular operation also stops unpleasant odors developing as a result of moisture forming in the filter or due to the build-up of bacteria.
