The Main Parts Of Your Residential Air Conditioning Unit In Rhode Island

WHAT THE PARTS OF YOUR AIR CONDITIONER DO
Refrigerant. Most people know that their AC unit in Rhode Island needs refrigerant. But what does refrigerant actually do? As you can probably infer from its name, refrigerant is crucial to the cooling of your home's air. The job of this liquid is to carry heat from your home to the outside, changing from a gas to a liquid in the process. Then once its heat has been released, it changes back to a gas and heads indoors where it gets cold again. Then the fan takes over to blow the air over the cold coils to be then circulated through the home. This happens repeatedly in this close-looped process. Refrigerant is used because it can easily change from a liquid to a vapor.
Compressor. Another great component part of your AC unit that helps with cooling your home. The compressor (as its name implies) is responsible for heating up the refrigerant. The refrigerant has to be hotter than the outside air for it to release the heat to the outside world. Thus, the compressor pressurizes the refrigerant to increase its temperature. When you compress air, it heats up (this is the combined gas law in physics). Heat flows from hotter to colder bodies naturally, which is why it has to be hot.
Condenser coil. The condenser coil is attached to the compressor and is housing in your AC unit outside. The condenser coil receives the hot refrigerant and releases the heat to the outside air as the condenser fan blows air over the coils. When the heat leaves, the gas turns back into a liquid, where it heads to the expansion valve in order to be cooled down.

Expansion valve. The hot liquid from the condenser coil has to be cooled down before it can enter the evaporator coils. This is the job of the expansion valve. As the pressure is lowered, so, too, is the temperature (our combined gas law at work again!), which is exactly what the expansion valve does. Here, the refrigerant changes to a gas once again as it enters the evaporator coil.
Evaporator coil. The evaporator coils are inside your home. As the refrigerant returns via the expansion valve to your home, the air from your home is blown by the blower or the indoor air handler over the cold coils. Your home's heat is absorbed since heat naturally flows from hot to cold (according to the second law of thermodynamics) and begins to evaporate.
Bet you didn't know that your AC unit involved so much physics? The constant absorption and release of hot air is what your residential air conditioner was designed to do. In the process, liquid changes to gas perpetually, too. As long as everything is functioning properly, the result is a precision-cooled environment that you can enjoy.
