Your Heating & Cooling system is the most expensive and intricate appliance in your home. It consumes 40 - 60 % of your homes energy, and requires maintenance to maximize lifespan as well as minimize repairs.
Air conditioners do not cool the air, they remove the heat from it. Heat is energy. By extracting the energy (heat) from the air that passes through it, your air conditioner passes air out of it's vents as much as 20 degrees cooler than when it entered the system.
Your air conditioning system is made up of many different systems all working together. From the compressor and coils to the thermostat and ducts.Your air conditioning system is made up of many different systems all working together. The refrigerant moves between the condensing unit and the air handler and is hot or cold depending on it's location and settings. There is a flow of indoor and outdoor air across the refrigerant charged coils. The air is moved by fans that are powered by high voltage electricity along with the compressor. These items are controlled by a variety of relays along with the thermostat that are powered by low voltage electricity. If one system fails to operate as intended, the entire system suffers or fails.
When all of the systems are working as intended, there is still a multitude of adjustments required and monitoring necessary to ensure efficiency or even a working system. Proper refrigerant charge measured by superheat, duct static pressures adjusted by duct sizes, and CFM's (Cubic Feet per Minute) of air pushed by adjustable electronically controlled variable speed motors, are just a few of the items taken into consideration during service and repairs.
