Air conditioning replacement service

Your air conditioning will need replacement services of the major components and the minor components after the technician checks for repairs and determines that those parts cannot be fixed. The replacement is usually of a new component and will improve the performance of the system. The first thing that the technician will check for is leaks using a special dye. This is because refrigerant when exposed through leaking evaporates. He/she will also look at the pressure readings and basically does a visual test to tell whether the air conditioner needs an in depth check. The specialized expert will also be able to change your old refrigerant type to the new environment friendly refrigerant. The technician will also recharge your system for you. If you are low on refrigerant he will do the evacuation then fill it with the appropriate amount of refrigerant. The technician may also recommend that some of the parts be repaired. Although he will not replace anything without your consent and he will show you the price of the item to be replaced and the models available.

A good repair technician will be qualified to fix many types of air conditioners, the car air conditioner, the wall air conditioner, the central air conditioner, the portable system and the split system air conditioner. Most air conditioners have the following similar parts, the compressor, the condenser, the evaporator, the expansion valve and the drier or accumulator. These parts are interconnected using pipes and valves. Refrigerant is the fluid which is also highly volatile that transports heat from one component to another. The air conditioner basically starts working when you turn on the AC and the refrigerant goes to the compressor where it is compressed and absorbs heat and changes from liquid to gas. Then it goes to the condenser where it is cooled sometimes in some systems the condenser may be fitted with an electric fan. After being cooled and changing back to liquid the refrigerant moves to the evaporator where it is cooled further and then air is blown across it for it to become cool and this cool air is then blown into your environment. The refrigerant then absorbs the heat from the air blown and it reverts to a gas. The drier removes any impurities on the refrigerant using filters and desiccant to absorb any moisture. The expansion valve controls how cool the air you receive will be. Before you start acquiring a unit you should check how energy efficient it is and for some of the appliances industries they offer free installation of your unit.

Most repair service companies offer the following replacements of parts of your air conditioner:

  • pipes
  • Compressors
  • Evaporators
  • Condensers
  • thermal expansion valves
  • Driers/accumulators
  • These replacements can be done within the same day as service companies stock on repair parts and you can also get great installation offers of a new AC unit if you want to change your old unit.
