How an Air Conditioner Works:

Similar to how a refrigerator works, air conditioners transfer heat from a home’s interior to the warm outside environment.

What Is Air Conditioning?

Many homeowners get an air conditioner or HVAC unit installed into their homes for heating and cooling the temperature, but other than that, what else do you know about air conditioning? While it may not seem important to know how your unit works, it will help you to ensure that you get the most out of your unit. Not only will you be able to identify when a problem occurs, but you can also make sure that your air conditioning is working to the best of its ability. If you want to know a bit more about the machine you use to heat and cool your home – we’ve put together a quick guide that may be of your interest.

How does an air conditioner work?

An air conditioner does not create cold air; it simply removes the heat from the air. There are three main components to air conditioners, the evaporator coil, located in the inside unit, the condenser coil, located in the outside unit and the compressor, a pump that is used to pressurize the refrigerant.

A central air conditioner allows cold air to flow throughout your rooms at the same time as removing any heat that is in your home. The air conditioner pulls in some of the air from your home and eliminates the heat by cooling it down using the evaporator coil, located inside on the AC unit. For the air to be cooled, the evaporator coil must be filled with refrigerant – this is a liquid that changes into a gas when it absorbs heat from your home’s air.

The refrigerant then goes to the condenser coil in the outside unit, and the compressor pressurizes the refrigerant making it hot in temperature. The outdoor air then absorbs all of the heat from the refrigerant, and once it has cooled down, it goes back to the evaporator coil and re-does the whole process. The coolant will keep flowing backward and forwards until the air inside of your home reaches the temperature that you have set on the thermostat.

What Can Go Wrong with your Air Conditioner?

  • The compressor and evaporator coils can become dirty and will need cleaning during your annual maintenance check. If the coils are not cleaned, your air conditioner will not work to its full potential and will become less efficient. When it becomes less effective, it means it’s working harder to cool down your home – it’s using more energy and costing you more money.
  • If regular maintenance is not carried out, the lifespan of your unit could be shortened. If you have an air conditioner unit, you need to have it serviced once a year – it’s best to get it done at the start of spring, so if there were a problem with it, you’d have plenty of time before the summer heat to get it repaired or replaced. If you have an HVAC, it’s responsible for heating and cooling. It should have a maintenance check at the same time you would have an AC unit checked, and another one in autumn before the cold weather comes along.
  • Air conditioners can suffer from refrigerant leaks; this means your AC unit will not be able to cool your home as well or at all.
  • If the drain line becomes clogged, it can cause some water damage to the indoor unit.
  • If the airflow becomes reduced due to dirty air filters, the evaporator coil could freeze. Air filters need to be changed or cleaned every month. If you have long haired pets such as cats or dogs, you may need to change or clean them every fortnight.
