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.

“Eric Hoyes came out yesterday for my annual air conditioning unit maintenance. He has been to my house before and is always courteous and knowledgeable. While here, he noticed a problem with the furnace. There was condensation in a couple of the pipes, which caused the furnace to not come on properly. He cleaned the pipes out for me and explained to me how this happens. I am very happy with the service that Eric provided and happy to know that the air conditioner is ready for another summer.”

“Eric was on time as scheduled. He went about doing his usual highly professional checking of my "old AC system", explained that his instruments indicate my system is on its last days of use. I decided to install a compressor hard start capacitor. "This part may help extend the life of my system". I trust his judgement and honesty in doing my job. I've been a customer since 1999. He is an excellent Technician.”

“Eric Hoyes came by to provide Climate Control's Spring Maintenance Service for our Carrier HVAC System. He was pleasant, cheerful and a thoroughly professional technician. He took pride in his work and was very happy to explain what he was doing. (What a welcome change from the other contractors and/or technicians that I've previously utilized for other home repair issues. Climate Control, Inc. employs a great staff, as all of their technicians who have come here over the past 3 1/2 years have exhibited the very same passion for their work. I am always pleased with the work they performed. Eric represents professionalism and proficiency at its best. He is a terrific asset to the company. I am glad that I chose Climate Control for all of my HVAC needs. It is one of the best decisions that I've made since moving here!”

“Dennis and Luis came to our house to investigate a vibration in the indoor blower component of our heating/cooling system. They arrived at the scheduled time (actually early 🙂 ). And within minutes had figured out the problem and made the necessary repair. They were friendly (good sense of humor) and thorough in their analysis and explanation of their repair. Dennis took extra time to explain some of the more technical workings of our unit which helped me to better understand how to get the most from our system. Thank you Dennis and Luis!!”
