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.

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 Panther Heating and Cooling, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at (803) 327-2700 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

Air Conditioner Maintenance in Rock Hill, SC 29732

“I have been a customer of Panther since 2001, when my house was built. I have maintained a service contract with them for my house and a house we purchased for my mother-in-law. They seem to really appreciate customer loyalty. I am always amazed at the quality, knowledge, and attitude of their technicians. Not a one has ever tried to encourage me to get a new system. They take great pride in making sure my systems are well maintained and operating to their maximum capacity. Today, I had preventative service done on both systems at my house and one at my mother-in-laws house. Panther noticed me by text that Terry Morrison would be the technician doing the service along with a picture of Terry. Terry showed up on time, wearing a mask for Covid-19, booties to protect my floors, along with a great attitude. Terry completed, what I consider a through inspection and necessary adjustments. He provided me with a very detailed inspection and service report, answered my questions, made recommendations on air filters, and things I can do to keep my systems operating efficiently. This is the service I expect from Panther and they never disappoint.”
