Answer: Those coils draw hot room air over them. The coil is filled with cool refrigerant. The coo liquid absorbs the heat of the air and cools it. This cooled air is circulated to the rooms to cool them. The evaporator coil is present inside the house, just above the air handling unit of the furnace.
