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.
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 one to three 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 and Sheet Metal, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

Air Conditioner Replacement in Lake Charles, LA 70601
“If you are reading my review to help you decide if you should select Trouth for your HVAC problem, then my opinion is most definitely Trouth will be a great choice. This past August our almost 50 year old system completely died. Go figure. Having never been responsible for solving this kind of dilemma I did a lot of Google research. I also did the due diligence of contacting 3 contractors. Choosing the right contractor is primary. The brands are close in their various ratings. Several Google sites agreed that Trane is a leader in their selectivity of contractors to carry their HVAC products. Rusty Trouth is a factory trained "Trane Comfort Specialist". This is significant. He did an energy survey of our house's square footage, window exposure to sun, venting, electrical, etc. Rusty is the most relaxed, personable sales rep I think I've ever enjoyed working with. He will present the facts and offer YOU to decide. Trouth's crew had to deal with my replacement unit in 90+ temperatures. We don't control when these mechanical things decide to quit. Troy had a squad of co-workers(no shortage here) and they did a great job. These young men were all well trained, focused on the job, courteous, and brought no loud music to distract me or them. The old system was hauled off completely by them. Nothing was put on the street for the city. It was turn key.
One key to my selection of Trouth is that their family operates, in addition to the HVAC company, a plumbing company, and a remodeling company. That told me if the AC team had a problem then they also had expertise available to fix anything that arose.
This review ran a little long(also late) but hopefully you can tell we feel very pleased; we also view Trouth as friends, and a team we can depend on in the future.

Air Conditioner Installation in Westlake, LA 70669
“1010 Hickman St, I'd like to express my appreciation for the excellent installation of my new Trane unit. I was apprehensive at first since they appeared younger than my grandson, but I can assure you they worked as a team. They conducted themselves in a professional manner, answered any questions I had and left me with an outstanding installation. Please pass along my "Thanks" for a job well done.”
