WHY AN ALL-ALUMINUM ALLOY COIL?
Because all-aluminum coils have been proven to withstand harmful environments that can lead to degraded performance due to corrosion, both outdoors and in. Contributing to this are weather, salt, air, and organic acids that are created when the off-gassing of volatile organic compounds from things like drywall, carpet, paint, and even common household cleaners combine with moisture on the coil. The end result is a coil rigorously designed and engineered to improve its resistance to corrosion and deliver peace of mind and years of reliable comfort.
TYPES OF CORROSION
The major types of corrosion react differently in their respective environments.
Off-gassing from fresh paint, new carpets, new furniture, and even common household cleaners generate what are called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). While you may not notice these VOCs, your HVAC system will. VOCs can create organic acids when combined with moisture producing a harmful environment for some coils, which could eventually lead to corrosion.
In coastal areas where salt air is common, galvanic corrosion of aluminum fins on outdoor coils can gradually compromise cooling capacity.
ALL-ALUMINUM ALLOYS: IMPROVED DURABILITY
We’ve engineered the Lennox Quantum coils to reduce the effects of corrosion in these tough environments, helping maintain your unit’s cooling capacity over a longer period of time.
ALUMINUM: LESS WEIGHT, MORE SUSTAINABLE
The specialized aluminum alloy we used to develop Lennox Quantum coils doesn't just reduce the chance of corrosion due to moisture, oxidation, or salt, it's also a key ingredient in our commitment to sustainability. Because aluminum coils are significantly lighter than traditional copper coils, some Quantum coil units can weigh up to 50 pounds less than the copper versions they replace. That translates into significant fuel savings and fewer emissions during shipping.
TOP ADVANTAGES OF QUANTUM COIL TECHNOLOGY
HVAC units should be a purchase made for the improved comfort and energy savings they provide, and Quantum coils are designed to deliver on both counts. Because they’re easy to clean—water is all you need—and resistant to corrosion, you’ll experience easier maintenance, better performance, and greater piece of mind for years of reliable comfort and energy savings.
