How your A/C Works?

A/C Service & Repair

How often do you take your car for brake service? And how important is brake repair to you? Of course, many drivers take the brakes of their cars very seriously. What about the A/C? How often do you take your car for A/C service? When was the last time you had A/C repair? Despite using it a lot, many drivers do not understand how A/C works.

How your A/C Works

When one turns on the A/C, the system refrigerant (Freon) is compressed by the compressor. This raises the temperature of the refrigerant. As it flows through the condenser, the Freon loses heat. It then passes through the receiver/dryer. Here, moisture and other contaminants are removed, leading it on to the expansion valve/accumulator, where further slowing down of the refrigerant occurs. This causes it to lose pressure and temperature before getting to the evaporator. The evaporator gets cold and at the same time lowers the temperature of the refrigerant further. It also removes any moisture from the air. The blower motor of the ventilation system then blows cold air over the now cold evaporator and pushes the cooled air into the passenger compartment of the vehicle, bringing in that much-needed refreshment.

Like you would take your car for a brake service, do consider taking your car for an A/C service. It is just as vital. If the A/C system of your car is not giving you the desired results, then it is time to visit Precision Auto Electric & Air Conditioning.
