How Air Conditioners Work

If you have an air conditioner in Gympie, you know how wonderful it is to walk into a nice cooled house during the heat of the summer.

At Tony Stephens Refrigeration, we can install, repair and service your air conditioner so that it always works as it should.

In addition to home air conditioning service, we can also help you take care of your commercial air conditioning needs.

Knowing how your air conditioner works allows you to detect problems so you can call us before they get worse.

The Basics

The basic work of an air conditioner is to cool the air in your house. This can be done via a wall unit that cools just one room or through the ducts in your house that can help you cool your entire home at one time.

The unit works to take hot air and cool it down before distributing it through your home as cool air.

This can be done in a few different ways so keep reading to find out more.

The Science

With a split system air conditioner, a compressor circulates refrigerant, turning it into a liquid that is then forced over the coil in the cooling compartment of the air conditioner.

A fan circulates the air as it passes over the evaporator where the refrigerant turns into a vapor that removes the heated air, cools it down, then releases it back into your home.

This process is repeated again and again as long as the unit is turned on so that the air in your home is always cooled.

We can help you find the ideal cooling solution for your house, based on its size and the way you want to keep it cool.

The Thermometer

Air Conditioning Units feature a thermometer that allows you to set the desired air temperature in your house.

When the air inside your house goes above the set temperature, it turns on and cools until it reaches the set temperature, then shuts off until it goes back up.

This is convenient for times when you aren’t home and keeps you from having to deal with the hassle of turning the unit on and off all the time.
