The HVAC system is derived from many parts, appliances, and other elements that work in harmony to produce a heated or cooled space. Like the overall system, the air conditioner unit itself has many pieces that bring it all together. The components help make your home cool and comfortable by removing the heat and balancing the humidity. The compressor component is absolutely essential to the cooling process. The basics of the air compressor is what we at Absolute P&M Services would like to share today.
AC Compressor Working Principle
As part of the compressor’s job, the temperature of the refrigerant is raised. By squeezing and increasing the pressure put on the refrigerant, this is accomplished. Once the temperature is raised to a certain point above the temperature of its surroundings, the refrigerant, in its liquid state, moves throughout the system. After the refrigerant is heated, it then begins to move throughout the condenser coils on the outside unit. Through this process, the heat absorbed by the refrigerant to be released into the outdoors. The air is cooled inside your home once this process is complete.
