Is Your Air Conditioner Ready For Summer?
During these hot summer days, escaping into your home to enjoy the A/C can be a real teat. Before you crank the A/C this summer, here are some steps to take first. “Before you start tinkering with the system, it's important to understand the basics of how it works. Central air consists of three main parts: the condenser, the blower unit, and the ductwork.
The condenser is the large outdoor unit that is probably tucked behind your garage. Its role is to manage the temperature of the refrigerant, usually Freon, which travels back and forth from the house. The condenser does this by pressurizing the Freon gas as it arrives, turning it into a high-temperature liquid. The Freon in its new state then travels back to the house and to the blower unit.”
