What Your A/C (Air Condition) System Made Up Of?
Your vehicle A/C (Air Condition) is made up with several parts. These parts are A/C (Air Condition) Compressor, A/C (Air Condition) Condenser, A/C (Air Condition) Evaporator, A/C (Air Condition) Thermal Expansion Valve, A/C (Air Condition) Dryer or Accumulator. All these parts play a big role in your A/C (Air Condition). The Tire Shoppe & Auto Mechanic Repair will always lead you in the right direction to get you back in a cool temperature vehicle during those hot days.
These parts each play a part in your vehicle and here is a what each parts role is to keep you and your passengers cool.
Compressor: Your A/C (Air Condition) compressor is what keeps your A/C (Air Condition) going. The A/C (Air Condition) compressor uses the refrigerant and presses it so it can absorb the heat and make the air cool. Your A/C (Air Condition) is ran on a belt and has an electrical clutch that signals the compressor on and off when you want less or more cold air.
Condenser: The A/C (Air Condition) condenser looks like a small radiator and its always in front of the car next to your radiator. The hot air passes through the A/C (Air Condition) condenser with becomes cooler. As it gets colder, the gas condenses back into a liquid.
Evaporator: A/C (Air Condition) Evaporator does the opposite of the condenser, when the cold liquid is passed through the A/C (Air Condition) evaporator tubes, the air is forced through and gets really cold right before it enters the cabin of the vehicle. As the liquid refrigerant warms up again it then turns back into a gas and circulates though the system.
Thermal expansion Valve: A/C (Air Condition) Thermal Expansion Valve is used to control the flow of the cold refrigerant to the evaporator. The A/C (Air Condition) thermal expansion valve allows you to tell your A/C (Air Condition) system on how cold you would like the air to be.
Dryer or Accumulator: A/C (Air Condition) Dryer or receiver is a safety net. It catches the liquid in from refrigerant when your compressor is turning it into a gas so that that the leak does not damage your compressor. There is always a change that some liquid can get through to the compressor. A/C (Air Condition) dryer is basically a filter for your A/C (Air Condition) system that takes care of contaminates.
