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 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.

Brett was prompt, courteous and professional. He was sure to talk in plain language with me about our system needs, and did his work quickly and with very little impact on my day. Definitely glad we went them!

Trustworthy, dependable and helpful. Brian told me what he was doing and why before any work began. I have used this company for over 15 years. Always good service.

Bryan was extremely professional and respectful when repairing our unit. He was efficient in his work and cleaned up completely when finished. Brian took time to thoroughly clean the unit. When informing us that the capacitor needed replacing, he actually took the time to show us the reading. I appreciate the respect he showed us as homeowners. I would welcome him back!

We had to have our home's HVAC system replaced. Josh came out, evaluated our old system and quickly provided us with their current models we could choose. Josh was very professional and informative. Panther Heating & Cooling sent a team to replace our complete system and they were all very professional, courteous and cleaned up after the install was complete. We had an issue with the new unit, however, Panther Heating & Cooling was very responsive and resolved our issue quickly and we are very satisfied with our new system! We definitely recommend Panther Heating & Cooling. Thank you to everyone at Panther Heating & Cooling!

Bobby and Todd came out to inspect my heating unit a second time to help quell my anxiety about having to shell out a large amount of money to repair. Thanks to Bobby’s knowledge we were able to fix the issue without a massive repair bill. The true test will be if my cold room heats up when it’s 20 degrees tonight. but the techs were professional, punctual, and friendly and I will continue Panther for my HVAC needs.

The technician was very courteous and stayed on task until he was finished. He serviced both of my systems ; installed surge suppressors and an air purification unit . I have not had my system checked since I moved into the house a few years ago. The annual inspection program will keep everything in good condition and happen without me having to remember to schedule maintenance.

William came out to service my 3 units. Did a great job. I really like the communication from the office. He was able to find a capacitor that was going bad and change that out so that we wouldn't be without heat all of a sudden. Our last gas pack was purchased through Panther. The install was seamless and I'm super happy with the unit!

Thomas was complete, informative and generally did a great job. He helps us at the Fort Mill Care Center too and that service went great as well.
