How Does An Air Conditioner Work?

Did you know that your air conditioner and your refrigerator have a lot in common? Both appliances work to keep air cool in a similar way. Learn more about how your AC unit works!

Air Conditioner Parts:

  • Evaporator – Uses cooling coils to remove heat and humidity from the air.
  • Blower – Circulates the air over the evaporator to disperse the cool air.
  • Condenser – Releases heat into the outside air.
  • Compressor – Moves the refrigerant between the evaporator and the condenser to chill the air indoors.
  • Fan – Blows air over the condenser to dissipate the heat outside.
  • Filter – Removes particles from the air.
  • Thermostat – Regulates the amount of cool air that is distributed.
