Depending on where you live, people depend on the air conditioner to provide comfort indoors from about May through September, and in the Vegas Valley, even longer. With routine maintenance and care, the air conditioner can last longer in optimal condition and significantly reduce the need for repairs. When it comes the standard operation of the air conditioning system, knowing the basics can help people better care for and even help recognize potential issues. With this in mind, we at Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to discuss the basic parts of the cooling system today.
In order to dispense the cool air into the individual rooms throughout the building, the air ducts are a series of metal or fiberglass tubing funneling the air. In order to ensure cost-effective and efficient cool air dispersal, the air ducts need to be tightly connected and sealed. Should they leak, the cool air you paid for is lost before it reaches its destination.
Air Handler / Blowing Unit
In order to draw room air to the evaporator and spreads the cool air all over your house is from these two components working in tandem. Overall, the air dispersal is done with duct assist.
Air Conditioning Compressor
In regard to the air conditioner, compressors are in simplified terms, the motor. The compressor functions to convert low-pressure gas into a high-pressure, high-temperature gas using a working fluid, also known as refrigerant, that easily transforms from gas into a liquid. During the process, energized gas is produced from the gap regions between molecules that get narrowed down. Coming from the compressor, the refrigerant, now energized gas, enters the condenser.
AC Condenser Coil
Fitted into the condenser coil is a fan, where the high-pressure gas is cooled down to be converted back to a liquid form. No in its liquid state, the refrigerant moves onto the next the part of the conditioner, the evaporator. Housed in the unit outside the building is where the compressor and condenser can be found.
Air Conditioner Evaporator
Generally close to the near the furnace, the evaporator is found inside the building. The condenser is linked to the evaporator with a very thin pipe. The now converted low-pressure liquid from the high-pressure gas will now enter into the part of the cooling system. The liquid is altered into the gas form due to the decreasing pressure in the evaporator. As the working fluid, or refrigerant, comes out of the evaporator, the heat is absorbed from the air, leaving the indoor space cooled. The working fluid comes out of the evaporator in the form of a gas next to again become compressed by the compressor. This continues on an everlasting cycle as the refrigerant does not get used up during the process.
The thermostat can be set manually or automatically, depending on the type of thermostat and its features. In order to maintain and control the indoor temperatures, the thermostat is a necessary device that regulate the heat energy flowing inside and outside of the air conditioner system.
