Despite these being necessary parts of air conditioning and heating units, most coils installed in air handling units are done with extremely poor access. This is due to HVAC units being designed with little thought to how HVAC professionals will need to replace the coils in the future. If this is the situation you find yourself in, or you have purchased coils that seem to be too long, we have a solution.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”3038″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]You Have Options
When you find yourself in a pickle where you are dealing with a condenser coil, single coil, or any type of coil that is too long, you have three design options when it comes to a replacement coil:
- Two Half
Each of these options offers pros and cons. Overall you will need to decide which is appropriate for your budget, and which works best for your system.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]
Sectional Design Coils
When using sectional coil designs, there are two parts to the coil. The first uses a front header end and a back-return bend end. These will be secured in the middle of the coil, which allows you to come from either side. These two halves make one whole coil and come together in a fluid-tight connection.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
Pros and Cons of Sectional Design Coils
When choosing between sectional and two half, sectional coil designs are the most reliable. Despite this, they are also the most expensive option. These coils can be up to two times more expensive than other designs. The higher cost occurs due to the extra material used in this process.
When using sectional design coils, the face area will remain the same. The performance of these coils will continue to be the same when it comes to fluid and air pressure. You will be able to continue with the same connections to avoid added work.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]
Two Half Design Coils
This design uses two separate coils to make up the entire length of the coil that needs to be replaced. There are a few different options when it comes to the two half design:
- 90-degree connections in the direction of airflow.
- 90-degree connections into the air stream.
- Two coil heads back to back through the backside on the opposite side of the air conditioner.
These will all use the existing piping at one end of the unit.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
Pros and Cons of Two Half Design Coils
The primary benefit to the two half coil designs is the price. These coils are almost half the price of a section design. Along with this, they are installed at only 20% higher than the cost of a single coil replacement.
The downside to two half design is that you need to consider costs for mounting both coils, additional work for piping, and other requirements. Two half coils also require extra headers and return bends. Overall they will take more space than other options.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]
Custom Design Coils
If your HVAC unit is causing you trouble and you are looking for accurate coils that fit without using extra space, custom design coils are your answer. These are completely different from other coils in that they are made for your unit. Although this might sound expensive, when you purchase custom coils from a company like Rahn Industries, you get a competitive price for a great product.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
