An indoor coil is required for an air conditioner or heat pump to function. In fact, without an indoor coil your air conditioner would be useless!
The air conditioner compresses refrigerant which chills it, and this chilled refrigerant is pumped inside to the indoor coil. When using a furnace to heat your home, the indoor coil is located in a box mounted on top of the furnace, and it’s called an evaporator coil.
See the picture to the right (or below if on mobile) and you’ll see an example of an evaporator coil in the highlighted area.
Evaporator Coil Efficiency
UV lamps help keep coils free of mold that can grow on the coil. Why does mold grow? Because as warm air from the home passes through the chilled coil, moisture condensates. This dark, damp interior is a place mold is all too happy to grow. Mold can pollute your indoor air and also hurt cooling efficiency.
