The system itself may seem complicated but the basic principle behind how the air conditioner works is quite simple to understand for anyone. In essence, heat is removed from the indoor area and the hot air is expelled to the outside.
An air conditioner has five major mechanical components;
A chemical refrigerant
The compressor and condenser are located on the outside of the air conditioning system while the evaporator is located on the inside.
Heat drawn from inside your home is transferred to the chemical refrigerant and then pumped to the outside unit.
As the heat is moved by the chemical refrigerant to the outside coil it passes through the compressor.
The compressor works as the core of the system, it acts as a pump, causing the chemical refrigerant to flow throughout the system. It draws in a low-temperature, low-pressure refrigerant in a gaseous state and compresses the gas.
The chemical refrigerant then exits the compressor in high pressure and high temperature and moves to the condenser coil.
As it moves through the condenser coil, a fan delivers ambient air all over the condenser coil getting it to cool and it also changes from gas to liquid. The high-temperature, high-pressure liquid then reaches the blower or expansion devise.
The evaporator is connected to a fan which blows the inside air over it making the condenser coil to absorb heat from the air.
The air is cooled and delivered to the inside of the house through ducts. The chemical refrigerant continues back to the compressor and the cycle begins again.
