Air Conditioning Basics

The four main components to your air conditioner are:

Condenser: The condenser is the outside metal unit and where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas entering the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered, so the gas can convert back to a liquid.

Compressor: The compressor is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrate the heat, and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.

Evaporator: The evaporator is the part of the system inside the home. In simple language, it absorbs the heat from your home.

Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.

All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat is collected in the evaporator, sent outside to the condenser. The heat is removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home.

AC Facts

An Air Conditioner Doesn’t Create Cool Air.
What happens in the AC process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes from liquid to gas and back again. During this process, the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cool.

Your AC Will Remove Humidity.
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.

Your Air Filter Needs To Be Checked And Replaced Every Three To Six Months.
(depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations)
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money, and over time can put stress on your unit and could cause a costly repair.

Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance.
Your air conditioner needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over all.

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.

At ABT Heating & Cooling, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 801-695-4626 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

“Stockton was our technician a couple days ago. Our system was not responding and I could not get heat or cooling response. He quickly found the several problems, correcting them and leaving us in good condition. He was very courteous, respectful, and always made a point to wear his booties to protect our flooring as he had to go outside several times and work in the dirt where our outdoor units are located. I give him 10 points out of 10 for great job.”

“I have watched Stocton Maxfield personally since he was brought onto ABT, he is doing a wonderful job, his growth rate has been awesome to watch, he is a very fast learner and is very bright, he’s very attentive to the job and really goes above expectations to get things done and done right. He’s very professional and kind. I appreciate Stockton and his work, his ethics and his willingness to keep us going here at SLB. Outstanding employee in my opinion.”

“James and Stockton, did a great Job.”

“Technicians were on time and friendly. Replaced the faulty capacitor. I suspected it was bad. My only issue was the price of the replacement capacitor. $176. I am sure they aren’t more than $50 on Amazon. They were here only 30-40 minutes. I just have a little sticker shock. I am retired and on a fixed income and it was a little more than I was expecting. Some other neighbors have had the same problem and only paid $210 and had a after hour charge. I originally had a appointment with Gunther heating and air. I canceled it because I know Adam Merritt. I used to live by him. Looks like maybe I should have kept the other appointment. Your techs did a great job but total price was an ouchy.”
