Air conditioners are amazing machines that make living in the summer bearable. Its main components work together to take hot air from your home and dump it outside. Here is a guide to how those five components work together to cool your home:
Refrigerant – The refrigerant pumps through cooling tubes, changing from vapor to liquid as it collects heat and ejects it outside. The coolant also keeps your AC working without overheating.
Compressor – The compressor is used to pump refrigerant throughout the AC. Refrigerant enters the compressor as a warm vapor and leaves as hot vapor.
Condenser – After the refrigerant leaves the compressor, it enters the condenser where condensing coils cool the hot vapor. This process changes the hot vapor into a hot liquid, after which it moves to the expansion valve.
Expansion Valve – As the hot liquid refrigerant passes through a tiny opening in the valve, it emerges as a cool mist.
Evaporator Coil – The cold liquid that leaves the expansion valve them runs through the evaporator coil, which sends the now cold gas through your air ducts to cool your home.
