High-quality Auto Air Conditioning Service in Watertown, SD

Your car’s air conditioner functions similarly to a refrigerator. The purpose of the air conditioning system in your car is to transfer heat from inside to outside.

Your Vehicle’s Air Conditioning Unit Has Six Major Components:

The Refrigerant

Heat is carried by the refrigerant. The R-134a refrigerant is the chemical used in current automobiles. R-12 freon, which is used in older automobiles, is more expensive and challenging to locate than R-134a.

The Compressor

In the cooling system of the car, the compressor moves and compresses refrigerant.

The condenser

The condenser in your car converts the refrigerant from a gas to a liquid and releases heat.

The Expansion Valve

The refrigerant liquid's pressure is reduced, its flow is metered, and it is atomized by the expansion valve, also known as the orifice tube.

The Evaporator

The evaporator in your car cools your car by transferring heat from the air blown across it to the refrigerant.

The Receiver or Dryer

The receiver or dryer cleans the oil and refrigerant in your car by filtering out moisture and other impurities.

How Your Car AC System Keeps You Cool

When the air conditioning system in your car is turned on, the compressor presses the refrigerant into the condensing coils, which are typically located in front of the radiator. The condenser cools the air inside the car by releasing hot air outside. The refrigerant cools as a result, turning from a gas to a liquid, which then travels through the expansion valve and onto the evaporator.

The liquid-state refrigerant is delivered to the evaporator, which then releases pressure and cools the remaining liquid. Air is blown into the car’s interior and across the evaporator by the blower. The refrigerant runs through this cycle repeatedly if your air conditioner is left on.
