How Does My Air Conditioner Work?

Monday, June 8th, 2020

AC-techniciansThe title of this blog poses a pretty complex question. There are a lot of different components in any given air conditioning system, electrical relays, capacitors, etc. When most homeowners ask this question, though, what they have in mind is how their air conditioners actually cool their homes. And to that question, there is a fairly simple air—through the use of the refrigerant cycle. By evaporating and condensing refrigerant, ACs are able to move heat from inside the home, out.

That’s a huge oversimplification of the process, of course, but it gets the major point across. Today we’ll be diving into the topic a bit further, discussing refrigerant, how your air conditioner uses it, and the very real risk of serious problems posed by a refrigerant leak.  Just keep in mind that any air conditioning repairs, absolutely including refrigerant leaks, require professional attention. Don’t ever attempt to handle your AC repairs in Chesterfield, MO, on your own.
