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 843-773-2550 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

Air Conditioner Repair in Florence, SC 29506

“Brett is a very knowledgeable and courteous young man. He explained the problem in terms that we could understand. He corrected the problem to our satisfaction. He is very professional. The young man left a positive impression on us. Whenever possible, please send him again whenever we have a problem.
Thanks, David and Carolyn Johnson” – David J.

Air Conditioner Repair in Timmonsville, SC 29161

“Having an older unit for many years became problematic, to say the least. Chuck Polk reviewed the numbers and explained we were paying more per year to maintain a 30 year old unit than it would be to replace it. We appreciated his honesty. We decided to upgrade our unit. No issues with the new unit. However, we have a split unit for the upstairs. It has some age but is in working order. Of course, this unit requires more maintenance. We had an issue with the unit today and Ryan Rhodes was our tech. Highly recommend him to do any work. Its very reassuring to know all we have to do is pick up the phone and call Quality Service Co. and they are always there to take care of us.
Chuck and Chris have assembled a team who are always on time, always professional, always honest and reasonably priced. We would recommend them for any of your AC needs.”

“Brett came out on my repair call and replaced the compressor on my a/c. About two years ago he came with someone else as a trainee but has now become a highly qualified tech. I watched as he worked and was satisfied that he was a true professional and that the job would be done right.

Chris I believe you have a top notch man in brett and that he is an asset to your team of qualified people.”

“Chris and his team are true professionals. I had a new unit installed and entire duct work replaced at my home due to flooded duct work and aging unit. I would highly recommend Quality Service Co. This company came highly recommended to me and I was blown away by the quality of work and professionalism shown by each member of this company. If you have a need with Air, Heat, or Electrical, Quality Service Co is who you should call. First time customer, and will be using them again.”

Air Conditioner Replacement in Florence, SC 29505

“This is our second experience with Quality Service Co. Our AC unit that serviced our upstairs went out and needed to be replaced. We had another company come in and evaluate the old unit and they informed us that they could repair with no problem. Their diagnoses sounded questionable so I called and Allen came out that afternoon and looked at the situation. His diagnoses was if they repaired it, I would be looking at future repairs because of where the damage was. Within just a couple hours the new unit installation was scheduled and financing was done. Within a couple days they arrived early and the old unit was removed and the new unit was being installed. This team was not only professonal, and courteous, but they left the work area in better conditon than they found it. They took the time to explain what they did and ensure I had no questions.
This team has the best when it comes to work ethics and professionalism. I have not seen this in very many companies in the past few years. I would highly recommend this company, team and individuals to repair, install or replace any AC unit or Gas Pack to anyone needing thier unit taken care of. Since I am limited to 5 stars I guess I will stop there, but they are really off the top of the chart.”
