How Air Conditioners Work

Air conditioning includes both the cooling and heating of air. It also cleans the air and controls the level of moisture, or the humidity, of the air you breathe.

An air conditioner is able to cool a building because it removes heat from the indoor air and transfers it outdoors. A chemical refrigerant in the system absorbs the unwanted heat and pumps it through a system of piping to the outside coil for dispersal. The fan, located in the outdoor unit, then blows outside air over the hot coil, transferring heat from the refrigerant to the outdoor air.

Basic Air Conditioner Operation

Most systems have four mechanical parts:

  • • A compressor
  • • An expansion valve or metering device
  • • An evaporator coil and blower
  • • A chemical refrigerant

 

Most central air conditioning units operate by means of a split system, which means they consist of a “hot” side (the condensing unit, including condensing coil, compressor and fan, situated outside your home) and a “cold” side that is located inside the house. The cold side consists of an expansion valve and a cold coil, and it is usually part of your furnace or some kind of air handler. The furnace blows air through an evaporator coil, which cools the air. Then the cooled air is routed throughout the house by means of a series of air ducts. A window unit operates on the same principal, except the hot and cold side are located within the same housing unit.

The compressor is controlled by the thermostat and is the “heart” of the system. The compressor acts as the pump, causing the refrigerant to flow through the system. Its job is to draw in a low-pressure, low-temperature refrigerant in a gaseous state and, by compressing this gas, raise the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant. This high-pressure, high-temperature gas then flows to the condenser coil.

The condenser coil is a series of piping with a fan that draws outside air across the coil. As the refrigerant passes through the condenser coil and the cooler outside air passes across the coil, the air absorbs heat from the refrigerant, causing it to condense from a gas to a liquid. The liquid then reaches the expansion valve.

The expansion valve is the “brain” of the air conditioning system and senses the temperature of the evaporator, or cooling coil and allows liquid to pass through a very small orifice, which causes the refrigerant to expand to a low-pressure, low-temperature gas. This “cold” refrigerant flows to the evaporator.

The evaporator coil is a series of piping connected to a furnace or air handler that blows indoor air across it, causing the coil to absorb heat from the air. The cooled air is delivered to the house through ductwork. The refrigerant then flows back to the compressor where the cycle starts again.

Our qualified and trained local HVAC technicians service all makes and models of air conditioner units.
