Know Your Air conditioning unit Parts.

Essentially, the air conditioning unit works on the successive heating and cooling of a super-volatile liquid called Freon. The latter first goes into the compressor and is compressed into gas form, therefore giving off heat and cooling the liquid consequently. 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 once again. So obviously, the surroundings cool off. This whole process goes on in a cyclical pattern, therefore lowering the temperature level in the room.

Apart from the three above major parts of an air conditioner, the machine also has a hot coil, a cool coil, one exterior 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 soak up heat. The control circuit modifies the temperature level by controlling the rotation speed of the fans with the aid of a potentiometer.

Of all its parts, the compressor continues to be the most important and expensive part of an air conditioner. So, the air conditioning unit manufacturers constantly provide a 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 replaced with a new one. It's easy to purchase a new compressor and fit in your old air conditioning unit. However, here it is always advisable to go for 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 simply purchase them and install it in their air conditioning units.

The evaporator and condenser in an air conditioner can be replaced too. So can the coils, in case they wear out. Any bothersome coil can lead to defective heat-dissipation, and lead to a major malfunctioning after that. The two fans are the most basic 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.Company\nSan Diego CA Air Conditioner Repairs
