Know Your AC unit Components.

Essentially, the air conditioning unit works on the successive heating and cooling of a super-volatile liquid called Freon. The latter first enters the compressor and is compressed into gas form, therefore giving off heat and cooling the liquid as a result. The dispelled heat is then fanned out with the help of a rotating fan. Next, the liquid gets into the condenser and soaks up the surrounding heat to transform into vapor again. So obviously, the surroundings cool down. This whole process goes on in a cyclical pattern, therefore bringing down the temperature level in the room.

Apart from the 3 above major parts of an air conditioner, the device also has a hot coil, a cool coil, one outside fan, one interior fan, and a control circuit in it. The hot coil is put outside to dispel the heat out, and the cool coil is put inside to soak up heat. The control circuit modifies the temperature level by regulating the rotation speed of the fans with the help of a potentiometer.

Of all its parts, the compressor remains the most valuable and expensive part of an air conditioner. So, the air conditioning unit manufacturers always offer a warranty on the compressor. A compressor of superior make and quality has a long life and functions fine over years. And, if the original compressor gives you problems, it can be replaced with a brand-new one. It's simple to buy a new compressor and fit in your old air conditioning unit. However, here it is always a good idea to go for the compressor of the same brand name as that of the rest of the machine. However, the issue is that only a handful of companies make their own compressors. All the others simply buy them and install it in their air conditioning units.

The evaporator and condenser in an air conditioner can be replaced too. So can the coils, in case they break. Any troublesome coil can result in defective heat-dissipation, and lead to a major malfunctioning after that. The two fans are the most basic of air conditioning unit parts that can be easily replaced, precisely because they are fixed with screws on the outside, and with wires inside the air conditioning unit circuit board.Air Conditioning Services Tucson AZ\nTucson AZ Air Conditioning Service
