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 Trouth Air Conditioning & Sheet Metal, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 337-527-8683 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

Air Conditioner Installation in Lake Charles, LA 70601

“Mike Buxton was so professional and courteous when he came by to give me an estimate for new AC install. I went through several contractors to get estimates but Trouth was the best. Mike even built a drip pan for the bottom of AC closet when the floor was a little rotten. That was so nice! The installers Scot, Loretta and Adam were so friendly and courteous. I will never use another AC company! Trouth Air Conditioning are highly recommended in my book! Thank you so much!!”

“We were experiencing issues with our outside condenser. Called and explained that to the service team. They scheduled us as quickly as possible. I got a call from service team saying that someone was scheduled and gave me a time frame for repairs. Shortly afterwards I got called by service technician advising me that they were on their way to my house. He showed up and quickly troubleshot the situation. Replaced the warranty part and tested the system and was able to fix the problem very quickly and promptly. Technician was friendly but professional with me.

“Contacted the office on Saturday afternoon and had the on-call tech calling me back a few minutes later. After a few minutes on the phone with Zach we were pretty confident as to what the problem was. It took Zach longer to drive to my house than it was to diagnose the problem, change the part and complete all the paperwork. Very professional and respectful. Thank you for treating us like family.”
