An essential component of your home's air conditioning system is the condensing unit. Typically situated outside the house, the condensing unit plays a critical role in the cooling process.
The condensing unit is filled with refrigerant gas. During the cooling cycle, the evaporator coil absorbs heat from your home's air and transfers it to the refrigerant. This heated refrigerant gas is then sent outdoors to the condensing unit. In the condenser, the gas is compressed and cooled, releasing the heat it has collected from your home to the outside environment. As the refrigerant cools, it transforms back into a liquid, which is then sent back to the evaporator coil to restart the cooling cycle.
The condensing unit also contains the compressor, the system's "pump" that keeps the refrigerant moving through the system, and a fan that helps disperse the heat from the refrigerant to the outside air. Regular maintenance, including cleaning and inspection of the condenser, is vital for maintaining your AC system's efficiency and longevity.
