Know Your Air conditioning unit Parts.

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

Apart from the three above major parts of an ac unit, 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 placed outside to dispel the heat out, and the cool coil is placed inside to absorb heat. The control circuit modifies the temperature by regulating the rotation speed of the fans with the aid of a potentiometer.

Of all its components, the compressor remains the most important and costly part of an ac unit. So, the air conditioning unit manufacturers constantly provide a service 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 substituted with a brand-new one. It's simple to purchase a new compressor and fit in your old air conditioning unit. However, here it is always a good idea to choose the compressor of the same brand name as that of the rest of the machine. However, the problem is that only a handful of companies make their own compressors. All the others just purchase them and install it in their air conditioning units.

The evaporator and condenser in an ac unit can be replaced too. So can the coils, in case they wear out. Any bothersome coil can result in defective heat-dissipation, and result in a major malfunctioning after that. The 2 fans are the simplest 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.Profile\nTucson AZ Air Conditioning Service
