What are the parts of a central air conditioning system?
The four major components of your central air conditioning system include the evaporator, condenser, compressor and expansion valve. The evaporator is located inside of your system and it receives refrigerant and converts it to gas to then cool and dehumidify the air. That gas absorbs heat from the air to bring it to the condenser, which is located on the outside. The condenser brings hot refrigerant gas outward to vent heat and convert the refrigerant back into a liquid. The evaporator and condenser work as counterparts.
The compressor works with the condenser to turn the refrigerant into liquid by pressurizing the gas. You’ll find it on the outside of the system. The expansion valve works with the evaporator to regulate the amount of liquid refrigerant is moving to the evaporator.
