You should probably be more specific about your problem and include a description and/or sketch about the heat exchanger in question

 

Is there an existing heat exchanger that isn't performing like it is expected to?

Are you designing a new one?

My question is more of an open ended question. I want to know what are the most common steps to improve the coefficient of a heat exchanger.

Is it fouled?  Compare actual U to design U.  It may need cleaning.
