Air Conditioning Basics
There are four main components to your air conditioner:
Condenser: The condenser can be found outside, it is the metal unit where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas enters the condenser at a very hot temperature. The temperature is then lowered so the gas can convert back to a liquid.
Compressor: The compressor is located inside the condenser. Its function is to circulate the pressurized refrigerant, to consolidate the heat, and convert the low pressure gas to high pressure.
Evaporator: The evaporator is the component of the system that lives inside the home. In essence, it simply absorbs the heat from your home.
Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the level of refrigerant in your system.
The magic is in the orchestration of all the pieces. They are all connected by copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat collects in the evaporator, and is sent outside to the condenser. The heat is ultimately removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home. Like magic, your home operates at comfortable temperature.

Common Air Conditioning Repair Problems

Outside fan unit is not running: The consequences of a fan motor not working, is that it will overheat and could cause severe damage to your compressor, causing it to burn out. When the motor burns out, the unit will need to be replaced.
Outside unit not running: If the complete outside AC unit is not running, one potential issue could be a blown breaker or power not being supplied properly to the unit. This is best resolved be a trained specialists.
Frozen Coil: A frozen coil is typical caused by not changing out your air-filters on a regular basis. We recommend air-filters be changes every 30 days. Low refrigerant can also cause blockages in the ductwork, that could be another potential cause of a frozen coil.
