Your air conditioning system uses a refrigerant (usually Refrigerant), which converts from gas to liquid, thus transferring heat out of your home. AC compressor presses the refrigerant, which gets there as a cool, low-pressure gas. The compressor’s task is to pack the fluid molecules closer together. This increases gas energy and temperature; as a result the working fluid is turned into a hot, high-pressure gas. This compressed gas is transferred to the AC condenser for the next stage of the AC process. An AC condenser has metal fins all around it. The fins operate like a radiator in a car that helps the heat disperse faster. The temperature of the working fluid leaving the condenser is much cooler and changed from a gas to a liquid under high pressure. In such a way that proper cooling is provided for your residential or commercial property.
In some cases, condensers become damaged or worn out due to mineral build up and results in the AC system running less than efficiently.
