Air conditioning may seem confusing and down right annoying when it isn’t working the way you want it to. But have you actually gone it to look at how your unit works? By knowing how your air conditioning system works, you will better understand what may be wrong with it if issues arise in the future. This will potentially save you money and time if you know what could be going on with it.
Air conditioning units use chemicals that convert a gas to a liquid and continues this process. In each unit, you will find a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator. The Freon gets compressed down into a liquid and sent to the evaporator in the air handler where there is a valve that expands the Freon into a gas causing the coil to get cold.
From this point, the blower motor pulls air from in the house and blows it across the coil to cool the air then distribute it back into the house. The gas then gets sucked back to the condenser where it is compressed back into a liquid for the process to start all over again. The condenser fan on the outside unit is actually used to help pull the heat from the inside of your home or commercial property.
Although there are many different units you can get, and many different places they can be installed, they are serve the same type of purpose and all typically work the same way. We want to help you understand the ins and outs of your unit and what kinds of things you can expect after we install one. If you have any additional questions about the process or your specific unit, please give us a call.
