Can the top baffel on the A-coil be removed?


Can the top baffel on the A-coil be removed?

I'ved attached a picture of an A-coil inside a furnace.

My question is can that top silver baffel be removed to increase airflow and lower static pressure?

the simple answer is no, its there because if removed theres an open space between the two coils where the air will flow thru without being cooled. removeing it wouldnt make any noticeable differance anyways

It's called "Evaporator Bypass". All evaps have it to some degree. It is the amount of space between A coils fins. The better evaps have less space between the fins making it dehumidify and cool the home air more quickly and eff iciently because there is more cooling area in contact with the air moving thru it.

The lesser quality A- coils have more space between the fins and as a result do not cool or dehumidify the air as well.

So removing that babffle would let airflow got straight thru the coil with little cooling performed.

Hope this helps.!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
