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 ACS Air Conditioning Services, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 520-230-5668 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

I couldn't be happier with ACS!

“Earlier this week ACS replaced my entire HVAC system. I decided to go with the Daikin 2 stage, 16 SEER system and associated Daikin furnace. The install team was at my house at 6:00 a.m. as promised. Brandon, Abel, and Aaron all worked on removing my old HVAC system and installing the new Daikin system. Their work was impeccable! The ACS install team focused on details that most HVAC contractors don't address during a new install. They were clean, meticulous, and extremely professional. I highly recommend ACS and I will be calling them to service my new HVAC system each year. I couldn't be happier with ACS!”– Terri G.

Excellent service once again

I just had Manny Borboa out to check on my HVAC new systems which ACS installed in 2/2019. He was charming, thorough, knowledgeable and provided excellent service and information. Wow! You are a fortunate company to have this outstanding technician. I appreciate his work and ACS. I will gladly continue to pass along my solid recommendation of ACS.

A Very Professional Operation

“From the time Ryan gave us an estimate to the completion of the installation of the new Daikin AC and gas furnace by Dustin and Abel everything proceeded smoothly. The old AC and furnace were removed cleanly. The new furnace and AC are functioning flawlessly. A very professional operation.”
