Copper Tubing is an integral part to any HVAC system. The primary use of copper tubing is to transport water either hot or cold inside buildings and homes. One of the other primary uses of copper tubing is for air-conditioning and refrigeration systems. Copper tubing is a great choice for an air-conditioning unit because it is resistant to corrosion, machinability, great heat transfer, and also consumption of less refrigerant.
Reasons To Choose Copper Tube Over Aluminum
At one point aluminum was used over copper in air-conditioning units. In addition to being less expensive, aluminum also has high transfer properties. However, the downside of the aluminum choice was the high maintenance costs. Aluminum is very hard to repair and most of the time needs to be replaced. Copper tube, on the other hand, is 8 times more durable than aluminum. The best part is that it is also a high thermal conductor.
Copper tube has pretty much replaced aluminum in almost all condenser coils. The copper tubing has proved to be a much better option than its aluminum counterpart. Copper has superior strength, reliability, excellent heat transfer, and ease of repair all better than aluminum.
