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.

SEER
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 Red Mountain Air, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 480-836-7222 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

“Tim Friederich was the estimator. He took the time to talk with us and measure everything to help us choose the best system for us. He also pointed out some mistakes that the prior company made when installing our remaining system. In 2015 we used another company to install our upstairs system and Tim showed us that the unit they installed was 5 years old when they installed it. The name plate clearly shows that it was manufactured in 2010. I would never have discovered this if Tim hadn’t pointed it out. The work Red Mountain Air provided was far better than the prior company I was using. The efficiency was higher, the price was much more friendly and the installation was better. Thank you Tim and Red Mountain.”

“Great experience! Tim Freidrich was very thorough in his explanation, and details pertaining to replacing our air conditioner needing replacement based on the age of the unit and it’s lack of efficiency. We had received another quote prior to Tim coming out to address our needs, which the quote was mind boggling, and prompted us to seek additional service quotes. Needless, to say we were quite pleased with the installation, and felt very good about going with Red Mountain Heating and Air Condition near Fountain Hills.”
