Air Conditioning Basics

The four main components to your air conditioner are:

Condenser: The condenser is the outside metal unit and where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas entering the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered, so the gas can convert back to a liquid.

Compressor: The compressor is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrate the heat, and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.

Evaporator: The evaporator is the part of the system inside the home. In simple language, it absorbs the heat from your home.

Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.

All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat is collected in the evaporator, sent outside to the condenser. The heat is removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home.

AC Facts

An Air Conditioner Doesn’t Create Cool Air.
What happens in the AC process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes from liquid to gas and back again. During this process, the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cool.

Your AC Will Remove Humidity.
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.

Your Air Filter Needs To Be Checked And Replaced Every Three To Six Months.
(depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations)
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money, and over time can put stress on your unit and could cause a costly repair.

Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance.
Your air conditioner needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over all.

SEER
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.

Air Conditioner Maintenance in Kingsburg, CA 93631

“Chris was very friendly, he arrived in the earlier part of the morning; freeing up the rest of my day. He explained what he was going to be working on, offered us information on the service programs available and explained how we could save money by signing up. When I expressed allergy concerns he offered a UV light option that can “zap” some viruses in the air before going through our filter; giving us cleaner air and extra protection in the home. Overall, great service, very accommodating when it comes to wearing a mask if you’re concerned about that sort of thing, and felt safe to have him in our home and yard.”

Air Conditioner Repair in Kingsburg, CA 93631

“My AC unit has been malfunctioning since May. We have been fighting with our home warranty constantly to get it repaired. Calling Jack's was the best decision I have ever made. Tabitha was amazing and was able to hear the frustration in my voice. She assigned Waylon to come out and diagnose our system. Waylon listened to us and was able to figure out why our system was not working. He was patient and understanding. Last night was the first night in three months that we have been able to sleep in our bedrooms. Our house is finally cool and this is all because of Waylon. Our trust in AC techs has been renewed. We are planning to ditch the home warranty and get on a service plan with Jack's. I regret not calling when we first started having issues. Waylon went above and beyond for my family and we are eternally grateful.”
