Wholesale Coils Buying Guide

The evaporator coil is the part of an air conditioner or heat pump that absorbs the heat from the air inside of your space. It is located inside the air handler or attached to the furnace. It is a crucial part of the HVAC system. 

You can choose between a cased and uncased coil, and you have chosen the cased coil, which is protected by a durable case. These models also come in different configurations, like upflow, downflow, a combination of these, and on a slab, specifically meant to accommodate horizontal air conditioners. 

You have chosen an upflow/downflow coil, meaning that your coil will be attached to your furnace in a vertical position.

The tonnage of your air conditioning unit should match up with the tonnage of your evaporator coil. So, for example, if you have a 2-ton condenser inside of your air conditioning unit, the evaporator coil should also be 2 tons. 

Here is a useful guide to tonnage sizes:

To find the desired tonnage for your evaporator coil, you’ll first need to calculate the square footage of the space that you’re trying to cool. Typically, the average home requires one ton of air conditioning per 400 to 1,000 square feet. There is a lot of variation in this number since you’ll also need to factor in how many windows the space has and how tall the ceilings are, as these things dictate how easily air flows through your space.

Disclaimer: Before making a purchase, you should always check first with your qualified installer to figure out what unit is best for your home or space.
