How Does My Air Conditioner Work?
Has it ever occurred to you to learn about what is happening in your air conditioner to make the air cold? It might surprise you to know that your air conditioner works nearly the same as your refrigerator does. Inside of the air conditioner is a refrigerant in the form of a gas called Freon. The air conditioner’s compressor begins to compress the refrigerant and causes it to get pressurized and hot. Once the gas is hot and under pressure it begins to pass through the condenser coils of the air conditioner, this process reduces the pressure and heat of the gas until it becomes a cold liquid. A fan blows air over the cold liquid refrigerant, thus cooling the building.
How Can I Make My Air Conditioner More Efficient?
Homeowners can’t ignore the need for being energy-efficient. Not only are there energy and tax rebates, but also reduced monthly power bills. Some tips for maintaining an energy-efficient air conditioner include:
- Have your air conditioner professionally services once per year by your friendly R. Poust, Inc. technician
- Your air conditioner needs new air filters every three months
- The air ducts in your home must be cleaned regularly
