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.

At Quality Service Company, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 843-252-0360 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

Air Conditioner Repair in Florence, SC 29501

“EXCELLENT SERVICE, EXCELLENT TECHNICIAN. Allen D. was very professional and extremely knowledgeable in fixing the air conditioner. He assessed the problem, provided the estimate and started work immediately. This air conditioner quit working on April 15th and I had two different contractors come to fix it and neither one got the job done in 75 days. Quality Service Co. was quick, honest and precise. I had only called them about two hours before Allen arrived. From initial phone call to completion of work was less than six hours total time. Allen didn’t waste any time, but the amount of work required to complete this repair took about three and one half hours. Allen took the time to check and double check the repair was done right and unit working properly. I wish I would have called Quality Service Co, 75 days ago. Highly recommended Company and Technician. I can’t thank them enough.”

“The two young men who installed our new AC/gas pack to replace our old heat pump were Justin and Devon. They spent all day removing the old pump and air handler and installing our new AC/Gas pack and worked hard with great clean up. During the day, I asked several questions. Both technicians were very personable and answered my questions in a professional and understandable (non techie) manner. I would recommend these young men to anyone who needs this type of service as I consider they did an outstanding job. Very pleased with the end result.”
