The Parts to Air Conditioning Units
Whether you are getting an air conditioner installed in your home or if you need maintenance or repairs for an existing air conditioning unit, it is beneficial to understand the different components to a unit. Air conditioning units are typically made up of five mechanical components: chemical refrigerant, condenser coil, evaporator coil, expansion valve, and compressor.
- Chemical Refrigerant: The refrigerant runs between the condenser coil and evaporator coil and provides the cooling power for your home.
- Condenser Coil: The air conditioner condenser unit converts evaporated refrigerant back into a liquid through heat transfer. This part of the unit is housed in an outside unit.
- Evaporator Coil: The air conditioner evaporator is on the cold side of the air conditioner. It works with the fan to blow air over the chilled coils and into the home. It receives liquid refrigerant and turns into to gas through a drop in pressure.
- Expansion Valve: This valve is in between the evaporator and condenser coils. It is responsible for depressurizing the liquid refrigerant so it can convert into gas.
- Compressor: The compressor for air conditioner unit works in the opposite way the expansion valve works. It re-pressurizes the refrigerant so it can turn back into liquid.
Be sure to see an AC set up by looking at our Air Conditioner Parts Diagram. For most central air conditioning systems, there is a unit that is outside of your home and another that is inside your home. The air conditioner itself works to cool and heat air, clean and control moisture level, and provide the maximum indoor comfort. The system pushes hot air out of the building and returns cool air.
