Comprehending the 4 Essential Components of an Air Conditioning System

An air conditioner is a complex system composed of many components, but the four main parts that are responsible for moving air in and out of your home are the evaporator, condenser, expansion valve, and compressor. The evaporator is situated on the cold side and its primary purpose is to receive the liquid coolant. It is then combined with a fan that blows air through the cooled coils to your home. The liquid refrigerant is converted to gas through a pressure drop by the expansion valve, which is located between the evaporator and condenser coils.

It regulates the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator. The compressor is located on the hot side and its main function is to pressurize the coolant. It is a large electric pump that repressurizes refrigerant gas to convert it back to liquid. This helps the condenser, while the expansion valve helps the evaporator. The six main components of an air conditioner that homeowners should be aware of are the thermostat, air blowing unit, air filter evaporator, condenser coil, and compressor.

The air filter is usually connected to the air conditioner's air handling unit and traps dirt, dust, and other small debris to protect the internal component of the air conditioner and improve air quality in your home. It's important to replace the air filter according to the recommended schedule as a clogged filter can wear out the equipment. The fan is part of the air handling unit and pushes air through the evaporator, where it is cooled. The fan then sends this cooled air through ducts to different areas of your house. Inside the evaporator coils there is refrigerant which captures heat from the air and is then pumped to the condenser coils where it releases heat outside your home. The compressor works together with refrigerant to convert low-pressure gas to high-pressure gas.

This high-pressure gas then exits the compressor and enters the condenser coil. This component serves to cool any gas under high pressure and converts it into liquid, preparing it for the evaporator of your air conditioner.Kimbro Air offers air conditioning services in Hendersonville, Nashville, Bellevue, Bordeaux, Brentwood, Franklin, Gallatin, Goodlettsville, Hermitage, Madison and Mt.
