It conducts heat better than aluminum, it is seriously durable, and it is far easier to repair compared to its silvery rival.
Maybe you aren’t a metal nut like I am, but I can tell you a thing or two about human history and the impact of our metallic friends. In fact, I’m a bit of a copper fiend. Nestled immediately between the Stone Age plus Iron Age, this period rightfully would have been called the “Copper Age” if not for the presence of Tin. The Copper-Tin alloy that was created proved to be more useful than the component metals plus after this discovery, the Bronze Era came to be around 3000 BCE. Copper metal has been a decorative plus functional metal ever since this invention. It is absolutely ductile (easily formed into any shape) plus highly conductive for energy and heat, making it a key element in electronics, wire, plus it is the number one metal to be used in air conditioner coils. Our other metal for AC units is Aluminum. Throughout most of history, Aluminum was nothing more than a curiosity. Then, we invented a way to extract Aluminum from bauxite ore with a cheap plus feasible process. Of course, there is no doubt that the better option for metal for Heating as well as A/C cooling tubes is absolutely copper. It conducts heat better than aluminum, it is seriously durable, and it is far easier to repair compared to its silvery rival. The concern with copper is its price as highly regarded as a “semi-precious” metal that has forced Heating as well as A/C manufacturers to effectively turn to the much less extravagant. Clever engineering tricks have led to A/C units created with aluminum tubes that are effective plus highly affordable. For most people, the extra “work” that the good old Heating as well as A/C unit does to transport the heat outside is barely noticeable.
