Central Air Conditioner Services in Twin Falls, ID
In the 1950s, the invention of the window air conditioning unit helped spread the use of ACs through residential buildings. For the first time, it was affordable for households to enjoy the benefits of an electro-mechanical air conditioner. But today, window units are only helpful for small apartments. The central air conditioner—also known as a split air conditioner because it has two sets of components, one outside the house and one inside—is now the main way that homes enjoy cool temperatures during the summer heat.
If you’re a homeowner, you probably already have a central air unit cooling your home, or you’re considering having one installed. No matter the situation, you can rely on Evans Plumbing Inc for any AC services you may require. We’ll install a new system, replace an old one, or rush to you with fast repairs—any time of the day or night—in Twin Falls, ID and the surrounding areas. Service… it’s the heart of our business!
How a Split Air Conditioner Works
A split air conditioner consists of an outdoor condenser and an indoor evaporator. To cool down a house, the evaporator unit absorbs thermal energy from inside, and the condenser releases it outside, a process called heat exchange.
At the center of the heat exchange process is a component called the compressor. The compressor places refrigerant (a chemical blend that changes easily from liquid to gas and back again) under high pressure to raise its temperature. The hot refrigerant gas first travels to the outside condenser coil, where it releases heat through condensation. Cooled down, the refrigerant moves to the indoor unit, passing through a thermal expansion valve that drops its pressure and makes it even colder. The cold refrigerant moves through the indoor evaporator coil, where evaporation absorbs heat from the air. An air handler blows the cooled air around the coil into a ventilation system and to each of the vents around the house. The cycle starts over when the refrigerant returns to the compressor.
