The Complete Guide to How Air Conditioning Works and How You Can Save Money on Your Utility Bills

What is Air Conditioning and How Does it Work?

Air conditioners work by removing heat from the air and transferring it to the outside of the building. This is done by condensing water vapor into liquid, which then becomes cold. The air conditioner then moves this cool air throughout the building with fans and vents.

How the Compressor Works and Affects the Energy Efficiency of an AC Unit

This section will cover the basics of the compressor system and its impact on energy efficiency.

The Compressor System:

The compressor is essential the heart of your unit, that compresses refrigerant. The pressurized gas is then pumped into an evaporator, which cools it down to a liquid state. The liquid refrigerant then cycles back to the compressor, where it repeats the process again and again until the AC unit shuts off or needs a break.

How the Compressor Affects Energy Efficiency:

The Compressors are responsible for about two thirds of all electrical usage to cool your house or office. So the more they run, the higher the electrical bill. If your unit runs all day without shutting off, you need to give us a call today!

Save Money on Utility Bills by Installing a Programmable Thermostat
