What is a scroll compressor
A compressor is a piece of machinery inside your hvac unit that compressor gaseous refrigerant so that it can pass through your refrigerant coil and be sent into your home to cool the air. A scroll compressor is a specific type of compressor that works by rotating pieces of metal instead of operating like a piston in an engine.
Why is a scroll compressor better?
Scroll compressors have fewer moving parts which makes them more energy efficient, quieter, and less prone to failure. This generally provides a better experience to the homeowner as the system will cost less to operate and repair, and will produce less noise than a traditional compressor.
