Auto A/C Components
The major components of an automotive air conditioning system consist of the following:
Compressor - a belt driven pump responsible for compressing and transferring refrigerant gas. Once the refrigerant is drawn into the device, it is compressed and sent to the condenser where it then transfers the heat that is absorbed from the inside of the vehicle.
Condenser - A component that looks much like a small radiator. As hot compressed gasses enter into the top of a condenser, they cool off. As the gas cools, it condenses and exits the bottom of the condenser as a high pressure liquid.
Evaporator - its primary duty is to remove heat from the inside of your vehicle. A secondary benefit is de-humidification. As warmer air travels through the aluminum fins of the cooler evaporator coil, the moisture contained in the air condenses on its surface.
Refrigerant Fluid - universally known as Freon, environmental laws for chloro-flourocarbon emissions have advanced to using R134A and R1234YF refrigerants for 2015 models and newer. The recharging and handling of an auto air conditioning system should be performed only by authorized ASE certified auto technicians.
