Parts & Components of Air Conditioners
- Blower Motor
- Circuit Control Board
- Condenser Coil
- Evaporator Coil
How a cooling cycle works starts with the refrigerant passing through an indoor coil. Here the liquid evaporates into vapor while absorbing heat and cooling the air around the coil. An indoor fan then pushes this cooled air throughout the ductwork on the property while the vaporized refrigerant goes through the compressor. Here the vapor is compressed as the pressure and temperature are raised as it travels through the reversing valve. It’s here that the hot and high-pressure vapor is released during condensation outdoors. Essentially, your AC blows air through a series of ducts often referred to as ductwork. This maze of ducts blows air through vents throughout the property and in some cases can be filtered to release purer air. Air filters can come with many different distinctions and abilities to catch onto particles. Whole house air purifiers are beneficial if you’d like pure air for each of your rooms as they essentially are placed in an area of your ductwork before the air is distributed separately into different places. Oftentimes, you’ll see problems emerge with your AC performance based on whether your filters are clogged. In order to improve indoor air quality and decrease monthly energy bills, it’s best to have them regularly changed every 6-12 months (with whole home purifiers you’ll only need to switch them every 3-5 years!)
Possible AC Problems
If your system is experiencing frequent on and off cycling it could be that your condenser unit is dirty or blocked or that you have an evaporator coil that’s dirty. Be sure to clear out any obstructions from your systems and clean the areas around any parts that could be affected. If you have a coil that’s frozen it could be that your air conditioner has been working harder in order to make up for some system malfunction that is preventing it from providing cooler air into the property. If this is the case check your air filters or see if there are any blocks in the return air ducts. Other issues could also stem from a poor blower fan or low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has been tripping it signifies that there could be a weak breaker that needs to be replaced or a compressor that needs to be grounded better. Other reasons could include a shortened condenser fan motor or a faulty capacitor. When your AC has been making strange noises such as squealing the problems could be misaligned belts or belts that need replacing. A grinding noise could mean that the motor bearings are having an issue while a pinging and popping noise could mean a loose metal flap in the ducts. Finally, if you’re hearing rattling noises it could mean that cover panels need to be re-tightened.
