Get Schooled on How an Air Conditioner Works

The job of your home air conditioner is to move heat from inside your home to outside, cooling you and your home in the process. While you surely know what it feels like when your air conditioner is not functioning properly, you may not understand just how your AC actually does its job.

A local HVAC leader, Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning understands that a working air conditioner is a necessity for residents. As such, we do everything in our power to keep your system functioning at top capacity throughout the year. Learn more about how air conditioners work below and then contact our talented techs to schedule an appointment if your unit needs servicing.

How Air Conditioners Work

Air conditioners work by pulling heat from the air and blowing cool air in to replace it. When you turn on your AC system, a set of cold pipes known as an evaporator coil cools the air in a way similar to how water evaporates from the skin. The coil uses liquid refrigerant, which changes into a gas as it absorbs heat. The gas-version of the refrigerant is then pumped out of the house and into another coil called a condenser, wherein it returns to a condensed liquid state. The pump that helps move the refrigerant between the two coils is called a compressor.

Your home’s air conditioning system runs with the use of a motor, however, the system produces 3 times more cooling energy than the motor provides. The increase in energy stems from the way in which the system changes and recycles the refrigerant.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
