Air Conditioner Condenser

AC CondenserThe air conditioner condenser is the outside unit that receives high-pressure, hot refrigerant from the compressor and allows it to cool by flowing through a set of coils. By the time the air reaches the end of the coils, it is still a pressurized liquid, but the heat has dissipated. Then it flows out of the condenser through a very small valve and converts back into gas.

Diagnosing A Faulty Air Conditioner Condenser

The condenser can attract dirt and dust. Over time, these particles might cover the coils and create a kind of insulation, which will prevent heat from dissipating effectively. This is dangerous because it can cause the air conditioner to overheat.

Other possible problems include refrigerant leaks. If the coils get damaged, it is possible for refrigerant to seep out, which will make the air conditioner less effective. It is also common for the cooling fins to get damaged, which might reduce the amount of heat being released.

Role Of The Air Conditioner Condenser

It is the transfer of heat from the refrigerant into the outside air that makes air conditioning possible. The refrigerant is absorbing heat from inside the house so it can be blown into the outside air. The condenser, working alongside the compressor, is an essential part of this process.

This release of heat is what allows the air conditioner system to function, creating cool air that blows through the vents in the house. Anything that hinders that process will not only reduce the amount of cool air being produced but also put the system in danger of overheating.

Regular maintenance can ensure that the condenser coils are kept clean. If you believe that there is a problem with your condenser, don’t delay. If left unaddressed, a damaged condenser can lead to costly repairs to other parts of the AC.

If your air conditioner has become less effective, we can determine if it’s a problem with the condenser. Cousin's Air, Inc. has built a reputation for top-notch AC installation, maintenance and repair in South Florida, so Call Us Today!
