Micro-Channel coils offer many benefits, including:
- Smaller Condensing Unit: Units that contain Micro-Channel coils can weigh 6-7 percent less than systems containing traditional coils. The height of some models can also be reduced by up to 4 inches.
- Less Refrigerant: A unit that has Micro-Channel coils uses up to 42 percent less refrigerant than systems with traditional coils.
- Durable: The consistent construction of these coils makes them hardier than traditional copper tube-in-fin coils.
- Better Heat Transfer: Micro-Channel coils can transfer heat better aiding in reducing the size of the condensing unit and making them more efficient.
