Performance Benefits

Micro-Channel coils can be found around the world in commercial HVAC applications and is quickly becoming the preferred technology in the residential HVAC manufacturing industry

The technology benefits appeal to the contractor, consumer and the environment. These coils solve many of the problems that were present with copper tube-in-fin coils. Micro-Channel is smaller, lighter, uses less refrigerant, features superior heat transfer and is durable.

Still not convinced? Here’s how all of these things benefit contractors.

Less refrigerant.

30% less refrigerant helps reduce costs, giving the contractor a competitive edge when it comes to pricing and saving time for the servicing contractor. Plus, less refrigerant means more eco-friendly – a great sell to the environmentally-conscious homeowner.

Smaller footprints and lighter weight.

These coils can be up to 50% lighter and 30% smaller than other coil models. Smaller footprints give contractors condenser location flexibility and lighter weight can help save time on the job. And, time is money.


The all-aluminum design makes the unit stronger, and it is not susceptible to formicary corrosion like some copper coils. More importantly, fewer brazing points ensures reliable performance. Put these two factors together and contractors can enjoy fewer callbacks.

Easy Cleaning.

Micro-Channel requires only water to clean the surface, simplifying the steps. In fact, chemicals or soap should be avoided, except when specifically instructed by the manufacturer.

Same Gauges & Service Tools.

Micro-Channel coils are no different to install than traditional tube-in-fin coils. So, if you already have temperature pressure gauges and the HVAC tools for a traditional install you are good to go. Outdated practices that measure refrigerant charge with a “rules-of-thumb” procedure no longer suffice, and are often the culprit of callbacks and customer dissatisfaction. All HVAC contractors should have the recommended tools in order to perform accurate and efficient installs. This reduces callbacks and on-site labor hours, while increasing homeowner satisfaction – resulting in a better bottom line for contractors.
