Evaporator Coil Leak
An evaporator leak would be considered a major failure but can typically be repaired or replaced the same day by Melo Air as long as replacement coils are in stock at the distributor. We started to see an increase in copper evaporator coil leaks in recent years due to formicary corrosion. Construction on new homes had become so tight and energy efficient that volitale organic compounds would become trapped in the home and sucked through the evaporator causing pin-hole leaks. This prompted many manufacturers to begin producing aluminum evaporator coils because they were not vulnerable to formicary.
