Central Air Conditioning Basics
At Vailes we believe that the more you know about your HVAC system the better decisions you can make in regards to it. Here are 4 of the main parts to your central air system:
This is the outside metal unit. This is where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas that enters the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered so that the gas can convert back to a liquid.
This is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrates the heat and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.
This is the part of the system that is inside the home. In simple language: it absorbs the heat from your home.
This controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.
All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating the 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.
