Air Conditioning and Heating Systems

Air Conditioning System

air conditioning maintenanceThis system shares air ducts, controls and a blower with the heater, but has its own refrigerant system. The air conditioning system is comprised of the following components:

Compressor

This is a pump that pressurizes and circulates the refrigerant through the system.

Condenser

As the refrigerant flows through the condenser, it gives up heat and converts from gas to liquid.

Receiver/Dryer or Accumulator

This is where clean, dry refrigerant is stored as it circulates through the system.

This is a metering device that controls the flow of refrigerant through the system.

Evaporator Core

Refrigerant enters the evaporator core as a liquid. Heat from the air converts the liquid refrigerant back into a gas, which cools the air before it enters you car.

Heating System

Heat is a byproduct of the engine’s combustion process. The heat is absorbed by the coolant in your car’s radiator. The coolant is then circulated through the heater core before returning to the radiator. The heating system also includes a series of air ducts, a blower motor and fan, and temperature and duct controls, which select the desired temperature and direct the flow of warm air.
