It’s safe to say that we all have some level of gratitude for a functioning A/C. Whether we take a moment of effort to appreciate these complex systems is a whole other story. Milford Heating & Cooling would like you to recognize these crucial components that make up your air conditioner to help give you insight into how sophisticated these systems are.  

What Are the Perks Of Recognizing an A/C’s Complexities?  

Understanding elements of your air conditioner can help you better handle it appropriately by making locating and fixing problems simpler and safer. This information can help dissuade unwarranted and expensive breakdowns, keep your system running at its peak efficiency, and guarantee your home remains comfortable. Our Milford Heating & Cooling professionals will now sum up the seven central components of your HVAC system that are essential to keep you nice and cool this summer and for future summers.  

What Makes Up an A/C Unit?  

  1. Thermostat: Depicts the current temperature of your household and enables you to modify that said temperature to your liking.  
  1. Air Filter: Safeguards your HVAC system plus improves your home’s air quality by eliminating contaminants such as dust, pet dander, and bacteria from the air blowing through the system.  
  1. Blower Fan: Is responsible for continuous and effective air distribution throughout your air conditioning system.  
  1. Expansion Valve: Adjusts the amount of refrigerant released into the evaporator to regulate the high heat of the refrigerant that flows out of the evaporator at a fixed level.  
  1. Compressor: The compressor crams the refrigerant molecules tightly together, boosting the refrigerant’s temperature and pressure. And since heat moves from warm to cool surfaces, the heat in the high-temperature refrigerant moves to the cooler air outdoors, where it circulates via the condenser.  
  1. Condenser Coil: Once the refrigerant is pressurized and warmed up in the compressor, it departs into the condenser coil.  
  1. Evaporator Coil: Often affixed to your furnace or established within your air handler, the evaporator coil is the element in your AC system that absorbs the heat from the air within your home. Fastened to your furnace or the inside of your air handler, it functions with a condenser coil to accomplish the heat exchange process that generates cool air.  

Must I Know the Parts and Functions Of My A/C?  

You don’t “need” to recognize every inch of your air conditioner. We don’t expect you to be a connoisseur in the area.

King, “The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.” Even if you know the bare minimum about your HVAC system and don’t memorize the information you’ve learned today, it’s okay.
