Condenser or condensing unit, that’s the name for the outside unit. This picture shows a cutaway view of an air conditioning and the components that make up the central air conditioning system (outdoor).

In this cutaway view (left) you see the big black compressor with the copper lines running to it. The compressor is the main component of the a/c system. With out the air conditioning compressor no cooling can be produced.  In the picture, on the top part of the condenser depicts a condenser fan motor which expels the heat that is taken from your home and delivers it outside. Chicago air conditioning repair and residential cooling is not that difficult if you understand the basics.  Other key components that must function properly in your residential air conditioner are the capacitors for the compressor and the condenser fan motor, capacitor’s are basically a electrical energy storage device.

The next important component of your condenser is the contactor. The contactor is the device that acts as the brain of the outdoor unit. When the indoor Thermostat calls for cooling, a 24-volt signal is sent, and the contactor pulls in and makes contacts that send the 240-volt power through the capacitors to the compressor and condenser fan motor simultaneously. This is what allows your comfort cooling to begin.  The next important item is the condenser coils. In the picture you see part of the coils cutaway,  the coils will typically be on the sides of the condenser. Cleanliness of these coils is very important.  It is imperative that your condenser , a/c or air conditioning unit be very clean and free of debris, cottonwood and any other lints or dirt.  Spring is here and the air conditioning companies are out to get your business so be informed and don`t forget to have Around The Town Heating & Cooling™ out to clean and check your a/c or tune it up!
