How Air Conditioners Work

Air conditioners are intended to create comfortable temperatures by removing the heat from inside your home through the process of filtration and conditioning. First, warm air is moved from the inside of the home to the air conditioner. Inside the unit, a chemical refrigerant removes the excess heat from the air, where it is then sent to an outside coil, where a fan moves the air to the exterior of the home.

Components of an Air Conditioner

There are several components of an air conditioner. Some are located in the outside unit, and others are located inside your home.

  1. Compressor
  2. Fan
  3. Condenser Coil (Outside)
  4. Evaporator Coil (Inside)
  5. Chemical Refrigerant

If any of these components are not functioning properly, your cooling unit is at risk of malfunctioning altogether, leaving you and your family without cool, comfortable air. If you’re worried your unit has a broken or malfunctioning component, turn off your unit and set up an appointment with one of our trained professionals as soon as possible. Running an air conditioner with broken components or limited access to air flow can exacerbate the problem and lead to more expensive repairs.

If your air conditioning unit is in need of a new component, call Greenway Home Services today to set up an appointment with one of our experts to learn more about your options for repair or replacement.
