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.

SEER
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 A-Plus Mechanical, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 281-970-5200 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

How Much Money Can You Save with a New Air Conditioner?

Our SEER energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit's SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.

Air Conditioner Repair in Cy-Fair, TX 77433

“First off, Ray was the best! In almost 9 years of being a home owner, my husband and myself have never had any home improvement work or maintenance/repairs done without trouble. We were so extremely satisfied with his work and truthfulness, we decided to create a Gmail account just to give him a five star review. Finally to have someone work on our home that we could be 100% satisfied with. If you want someone you can trust, someone who knows what he’s doing, who is truthful and will take away your A.C. issues, A Plus is your company. We have had issues with our A.C. for years. Brand new house with 4 previous A.C. people come into our home to do work that did absolutely no improvement to our issues, until we were recommended to give A Plus a call. Fast Service! Reliable! Knowledgeable! Truthful! Professional!”

“A-Plus is a top notch repair / installation service that offers friendly, professional work at reasonable prices. For starters, Steve had the latest diagnostic software loaded on his tablet and was able to show me readings directly from my unit so I could see exactly how it was performing before and after the service. He was very informative about the options that were available to me regarding my older but still running A/C. At no time did I feel like I was being “sold” on something. He let me know in advance what the charges were going to be before the work was completed. No surprises. Steve and Ray took their time to do the job right with a level of quality and professionalism that is hard to find today. How many times have you paid for a repair service and been happy with the work AND pleased with the value? That’s the way I felt today after A-Plus Mechanical Services left. I hope I never need to make another repair call but if I do, I know who I’m calling. The pros.”
