Air Conditioning Installation and Service - West Chester PA

The summer heat in West Chester is difficult to deal with as a home owner. How do Air Conditioners keep the air cool when it is hot? It’s important to know what needs to be done to maintain them so that they don’t fail during critical times in the summer.

Central air conditioners are your best safe guard against the heat.

Air conditioners have three components that work together to cool the air.

Those are the condenser, blower, and ductwork. This is how they function together to produce cool air.

  1. The condenser is the box located outside. It regulates the thermal reading of the refrigerant, often Freon. It then pressurizes the Freon Gas, transforming it into high temperature liquid.
  2. The blower motor is located inside the home. Freon is a high temperature liquid that the blower motor takes over turning it back into a liquid gas that’s much cooler
  3. The ductwork and coil are located in the house. The blower motor pushes that gas through the ductwork and when it passes over the coil it cools. The cool air in the ductwork is then distributed throughout the home thought the vents.

What should I do to make sure that my air conditioner running efficiently?

  1. It is important to have your heating and air conditioning company preform Bi yearly Preventive Maintence cleanings and your Heating and Air conditioning systems. We recommend that the Air Conditioning Preventive Maintence cleaning be performed in the spring or early summer. It is important to get this done before it gets too hot
  2. When the intense heat strikes this will better assure that your air conditioner is working well.
