HOW AN AIR CONDITIONER WORKS

Air conditioners are an investment for your home and family’s comfort.

To get the most out of your central air system, it helps to know how it works. Then, you will be equipped to make smart and informed decisions regarding your air conditioner.

When you need an air conditioning repair, you deserve on-time service, upfront pricing, and friendly technicians that you’re comfortable having in your home. At Bell Brothers, we’ve been doing exactly that for 30 years.

  • It starts with the air inside your home. The first step your air conditioner takes in providing cold air is retrieving air from inside your home through the registers.
  • Once the air is sucked in through the registers, it is passed down through the supply air duct, making its way to the furnace.
  • The furnace is where both heating and air conditioning take place. The collected air passes through a filter.

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO ELEVATE THE QUALITY OF THE AIR YOUR AC UNIT PRODUCES

Service Champions makes sure to provide different air filter options to ensure a high level of indoor air quality, minimizing the pollen, allergens and other particles.

There are a few options for making sure your air is free of contaminants and irritants.

  • Ultraviolet Biocide Chamber: A product that uses UV rays to destroy airborne viruses, microbiological growth, bacteria, and contaminants.
  • Bioguard Powered Filter. An electronic filter sends waves of static charge into the air passing through it, causing even the smallest dust particles to collect in the filter before being blown throughout your home.
  • Air Scrubber Plus: An add-on to your air conditioning system that reduces home odors caused by chemicals, smoking, pets, and cooking and lessens microbiological growth, odor-causing bacteria, dust, surface, and airborne contaminants.

WHAT IS AN AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM?

At Service Champions, we prefer education and a consultative approach over high-pressure sale and a superior attitude. Below you’ll find information that helps you understand how an air-conditioning system actually works.

We install, service, and maintain all makes and models of air conditioners. Here are some basic terms to help you familiarize yourself when looking into a new air conditioning system.

In air conditioning systems, the efficiency is determined by the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio)The higher the SEER, the more energy-efficient the system is, and the lower the operating costs.

(AKA Outdoor Coil): This piece of the air conditioner removes heat from the refrigerant in vapor form. When the heat is removed, the refrigerant becomes liquid and moves back to the inside of the machine.

The compressor is usually located on the outside portion of the air conditioner. The compressor motor is a pump that moves the refrigerant from the indoor evaporator coil to the outside condenser coil and then back to the evaporator coil again.

The evaporator coil is located on the inside of the house. The coil takes heat and moisture out of the indoor air as it crosses over the coils, reversing refrigerant from liquid to gas.

The chemical used to cool air. Refrigerant expands to vapor form, gathering hot air, and then contracts to liquid form to cool the air.

Like a light switch, a single-stage air conditioner is either on or off. When your home’s temperature rises above your thermostat’s setting, it turns on 100% until your comfort level is reached and then turns off completely.

A two-stage air conditioner is more like a fan switch: it can be off, on, or at a medium speed. When your air conditioner only needs to cool your home a few degrees, it uses its “lower gear” to accomplish the task more efficiently. And when the cooling load is more strenuous, it uses its higher speed to cool your home quickly.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ZONING YOUR HOME?

Zoning refers to the system in which multiple thermostats are used to control heat and cool areas of the home with one central air system.

What this allows is for different areas of the house, or zones, to be heated or cooled to temperatures varying from zone to zone in the house.

  • Heats or cools only desired areas to maximize your comfort – Zoning allows the freedom to control the distribution of air in your home. This allows the maximum amount of personalized air conditioning and heating
  • Money savings on utility bills – Zoning is particularly energy-efficient since it reduces air conditioning to specified zones instead of the entire house.
  • Flexibility and control over temperature
