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.

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 Precise Comfort and Climate Specialists, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 504-273-0522 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

Air Conditioner Repair in Kenner, LA 70062

“My house was hot as my AC wasn’t cooling and they came out on a Saturday night and fixed it. Other places advertised 24/7 service but didn’t return calls or couldn’t assist me. These guys are the real deal. Thank you!” – Allison L.

Air Conditioner Repair in New Orleans, LA 70112

“I had our A/C looked at when it stopped blowing cold air. Was told that the condensing unit needed to be replaced. I wanted a second opinion and called Precise.

They were able to come out the next morning and found that a capacitor had been wired incorrectly when it was previously serviced.

Precise saved me $3600! Couldn’t be happier that they helped extend the life of the current condensing unit.”

– Harrison H.

Air Conditioner Replacement in Metairie, LA 70002

“Replaced two 14 year old air conditioners at my home. Very reasonable price and great service. They responded immediately with the quote, and the installation, and everything was done very professionally with attention to detail. Wouldn’t hesitate to call Melvin, and Precise, again for any of my A/C and heat repairs and service. Great job!”

Air Conditioner Installation in New Orleans, LA 70126

“My job used Precise 2 years ago for a complete AC replacement and we were well satisfied. When my home AC system needed replacement, I got several quotes, but Precise hit my price point and I knew their work.
On the day of installation, Melvyn and his men arrived at the stated time, 6:30 AM, and began work. By 2:00 PM we had completed the installation check-off sheet. True to form, the work was professionally done. The paperwork was submitted by Precise, and I received my warranty document from the vendor and the AHRI Certificate of product ratings.”

Air Conditioner Installation

“I was impressed with the time Melvyn took to explain how my system works and why it needed replacement. The installers applied a protective film over my new carpet to keep it spotless which I never seen done before. Melvyn then followed up by going over the installation and the operation of my new system. They are very professional and I highly recommend them.”

– Hector M.

“I was impressed with the prompt and professional attitude of the technicians. They arrived when promised, and, most importantly, they EXPLAINED what they were doing and why they were doing it. They did a thorough examination of my units, and detailed what was a necessity, what needed to be watched, and what should not be any problem at all. The technician also checked the status on any warranties I may have had on my unit. I will always recommend Precise Comfort to anyone who has heating and air conditioning needs.”
