Parts of Your Air Conditioning Unit And What To Know

Getting a repair on your air condition isn’t everyone’s idea of a good time. Regardless of your feelings it’s important to know a little bit about a system. In the long run it will save you time and money. While it’s not much different than an AC unit in your car it does have unique qualities. Air Conditioning Repair Grand Haven residents find may not provide you with everything you need to know so here’s a guide, the parts of an air condition system that may need repair.

The compressor could be considered the “heart” of the system, pumping a refrigerant though all the refrigeration components in a big loop. Refrigerant enters the compressor as a low-pressure warm vapor and leaves it as a high-pressure hot vapor.

Another important part is the condenser. From the compressor, hot vapor moves to the condenser. Here the high-pressure hot vapor is cooled by air blowing over finned condensing coils by the condenser fan as it moves through the finned coils. The compressor, condenser coil and condenser fan are all located outside of your home often called a condensing unit.

In an air condition system the fan moves air across the cool coils to deliver the cool air. If your system is fan mode, the coils aren’t cool since the compressor is off, so the fan only moves the air around without any cooling. If your fan is not working then there is no way to bring air into the system and then into your home.

Your filter helps to keep dust from collecting in your air conditioning system. It is located inside the air handler and is one of the main components of any air conditioning system. Any dust that passes through the filter ends up back in your living space and can be very irritating to anyone who is sensitive to dust or has allergies. The filter also prevents the evaporator coil from becoming clogged with dust and reducing the efficiency of the equipment. If you’re experiencing dust in your home you may want to look at the filter. This is typically an easy fix.
