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.

“Our thermostat stopped working late in the evening. The after-hours technician, Mike S, responded immediately and was so very helpful. With the incredible customer service we received from Mike we were able to resolve the problem over the phone and avoid the cost of an after-hours service fee. It was a level of customer service that is rarely found these days. Thank you, Mike! We have used Crystal Air & Water for many years. It has definitely been the right choice.”

Air Conditioner Repair in Gainesville, FL 32609

“Our air conditioner had an issue that was difficult to diagnose due to symptoms that were not constant. My wife has breathing issues that make the AC an absolute must. Seth brought the basic maintenance issues up to date, working in the hot, high August heat, humidity , between rain showers. He then consulted with Ronnie for confirmation of the solution, and they got our unit up and running. These guys worked hard. A real lifesaver for us. We have been with The Penguin for over 13 years, and they have never let us down. Great service, always fair prices. Thanks to all at Crystal Air & Water.”

Air Conditioner Replacement in High Springs, FL 32463

“So, unfortunately my A/C unit needed to be replaced..(I KNEW it was coming, the unit was about 14 yrs old) I have renters in the house so when the tech gave us the news about needing the new AC, he immediately offered a temporary fix so they would not be without air-conditioning! Crystal Air worked us into their schedule and was able to install the new unit the following WEEK! They did an awesome job, my renters called me to complement the technician and the whole process. The house is cool again and they have noticed the air quality improvement with the addition of the air treatment unit.
My fiancé also has rental property and has always used Chrystal Air and has never been disappointed!!
In this day and age it’s great to see that some companies still put their customers service first !!!
Thanks again Ronnie @ Chrystal Air!!”

“We where having issues with AC not blowing hard enough. We made a service call. Tech advised we had some holes in Flex Duct. Spoke with Lance the estimator who advised repairs would be 1,475.00. Schedules repair work. Richard & Cisco arrived on time of date of repair. They where able to provide excellent customer service and found only a small section of Flex duct that would need repair. It’s the honesty and Integrity of these repair men that took their time to perform an assessment of quote work to perform the job, That reduced my bill to 575.00. They where able to advice management staff that an entire duct replacement was not needed. They where able to repair the section that was damaged. Its the quality and professionalism these individuals have to understand the needs of customers.”
