What equipment do we use in an AC install?
Unless you’re an HVAC pro (like us), you won’t be familiar with the different components and industry terminology. If you feel like your technician is speaking a foreign language, don’t worry! We’ll be sure to explain every detail and educate you in the process.
During an air conditioner installation, you might need to purchase just one piece of an AC system or have all the components included. Before you inquire about this type of project, it’s important to educate yourself on the basics outlined below:
Evaporator coil (also known as the evaporator or indoor coil) – The indoor side of your air conditioner is the evaporator coil. Most homes in LA have an evaporator coil right next to a furnace. If there’s no furnace, there tends to be an evaporator coil inside what we call an air handler. The evaporator coil is where cold refrigerant travels through. Evaporator coils also contain an expansion valve. The expansion valve keeps your coil at the necessary cool temperature.
Condensing unit (also referred to as a condenser, outdoor unit, or air conditioner) – The condensing unit is the big metal box that you see outside your home. The condensing unit builds pressure in the system and cools the refrigerant. The condensing unit has components that help with this, including a coil, a fan, and a compressor. The coil and fan cool the refrigerant, while the compressor builds pressure.
Other components in an air conditioning system: Although condenser units and evaporator coils are the main pieces of your air conditioning, don’t overlook these other critical parts:
- Piping for refrigerant that travels between the condensing unit and evaporator coil
- Ductwork, which distributes air around your home
- Blower (or indoor fan), which helps airflow through the ductwork. The indoor fan is inside a furnace or an air handler.
- Thermostat, which sends on and off signals to your condensing unit and blower
