Air Conditioning Basics

The four main components to your air conditioner are:

Condenser: The condenser is the outside metal unit and where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas entering the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered, so the gas can convert back to a liquid.

Compressor: The compressor is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrate the heat, and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.

Evaporator: The evaporator is the part of the system inside the home. In simple language, it absorbs the heat from your home.

Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.

All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat is collected in the evaporator, sent outside to the condenser. The heat is removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home.

AC Facts

An air conditioner doesn’t create cool air.
What happens in the AC process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes from liquid to gas and back again. During this process, the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cool.

Your AC will remove humidity.
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.

Your air filter needs to be checked and replaced every three to six months (depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations).
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money, and over time can put stress on your unit and could cause a costly repair.

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.
Your air conditioner needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over all.

SEER
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.

At Climate Control, Inc., we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

“I was pleased with Juan's work and the way he explained everything. I felt that he cared about the questions I asked and that he answered them thoughtfully.”

“Juan arrived to unlock and reset the thermostat to the Carrier cooling-heating unit in my condo after calling ahead to say he was on his way. He was quick, efficient, and effective. When he finished, he checked the restored air temperature at the ducts and coached me on what to do if the unit locked again. He also recommended that I subscribe to CC's one-year service contract.

Thank you, Juan”

“Climate control and Steve are awesome! He came out the day after an emergency call for a malfunctioning A/C during a rare hot Portland week keeping the toddler up all night! He took a good history, thorough checked things out, made the necessary repairs and explained everything really well, point by point. He was professional, friendly, (especially to my little boy and the cat who climbed his ladder!), prompt and efficient. I feel much more confident that we'll have our working unit for the rest of summer (it's almost 20 years old!) and look forward to our ongoing maintenance and eventual replacement with this company. Bravo!”
