The two main components of an air conditioner are usually the condenser and the evaporator coil. What is a Condenser? A condenser unit used in central air conditioning systems typically has a heat exchanger section to cool down and condense incoming refrigerant vapor into liquid, a compressor to raise the pressure of the refrigerant and move it along, and a fan for blowing outside air through the heat exchanger section to cool the refrigerant inside. Condensers are outside units. It’s the outside portion of your central air conditioning split system. What is an Evaporator Coil? The evaporator coil cools and dehumidifies the air by converting liquid refrigerant into a gas, which absorbs the heat from the air. The warmed refrigerant is then carried through a tube to the outdoor unit (condenser coil). At Energy-Star Services, we supply and install the highest quality condensers and evaporator coils in the industry. Proper equipment for every application whether it be by a shore point or in a flood zone area. Call for more details.
