Ever Wondered How Air Conditioners Work?
Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The goal of any air conditioner employed at a house or office is always to:
  • Maintain a healthy and sufficient amount of air humidity
  • Provide a constant stream of desired ventilation continuously
  • Clean the air from dust and other particles that may be harmful
  • Provide a constant supply of cool indoor air even during the hottest months
The air-conditioners’ chief tasks would be to cool and clean the air inside the confines of the room or home it is in.

To cool the air, the air conditioner pulls the heat out of the air via the evaporator coil. This is a set of cold pipes which are constantly kept ice cold. The concept is simple and basically employs the law of physics pertaining to the cooling effect of evaporation.

The Evaporator Coil

These pipes of the evaporator coil are frozen solid this is basically done by running a refrigerant in it. This refrigerant is a liquid that absorbs the heat and turns into gas while cooling the air. This hot gaseous refrigerant is then pumped to the external unit. This then goes to a second coil with a condenser which would then absorb all the heat from the refrigerant. This heat would be dispersed into the environment while the condenser turns the hot gas into a liquid. The heat is then released into the environment.

Refrigerant

The refrigerant is in its standard state a gas which is cooled to a liquid. This is usually the R22 Freon gas. This gas is then moved between the evaporator and condenser coils. This is usually done with the help of the compressor and the heat of the gas. The compressor is also responsible for maintenance of the refrigerant pressure, thus making sure that the two conversion processes happen in the different coils dedicated to them.

The Motor

The motor in this appliance is basically responsible for running the compressor. The compressor tends to use the energy required to execute these processes and power the coils. The air conditioning system basically multiplies the cooling power of the compressor to three times and uses it to cool the room. This happens because the refrigerant evaporation and condensation increase and decrease the mass of the gas. This allows the system to move using less energy when the Freon is gaseous and using more energy when the Freon is liquid.

Now that you have a basic understanding of how air conditioners work and its main components, we can move on to the air filters.

Why Air Conditioner Filter Maintenance Is Important

It is crucial for maintaining your air conditioner’s functioning that you replace or clean the air filters periodically. The frequency of the replacement usually determines how clean the air is and how safe it can be. The frequency of change depends on the filter's dimension and by the cleanliness of the air.

A clogged filter would need more power to push the same air to the room. Its always smart to keep them clean. This makes a regular air filter change an excellent money saving tactic.
