1202 Evaporator Coil Collecting Hot Air Inside House - Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps -

Image Text: Warm air from inside house at 75 degrees Fahrenheit > evaporator coil > warmer flow direction > warm Freon gas (typically 50 degrees Fahrenheit) > cooler air can now be sent back into the house through the ductwork at 55 degrees Fahrenheit > flow direction > cold liquid Freon (typically 20 degrees Fahrenheit) > the warm house air boils the cold liquid Freon into a gas > lots of heat is absorbed in the process - this is called the latent heat of vaporization - and makes for very efficient heat transfer > because the Freon is VAPORIZING in this coil, it is called the evaporator coil > Freon makes an excellent heat transfer material - at atmospheric pressure, it is a colorless gas > when it boils, it absorbs a lot of heat > when it condenses from a gas to a liquid, it gives off a lot of heat (this is helpful when discharging heat to the outside through the condensing coil)
