Freon Lines & Your HVAC System
How Air Conditioners Work
Air conditioners work by removing heat from warm air in your buildings/homes and replacing it with cool air until the thermostat reaches the desired temperature. Freon provides cooling by:
- Compressing the Freon gas causing it to become hot (high pressure Freon) in the systems compressor.
- Passing the hot air through a series of coils to dissipate the heat and condense the gas into a liquid.
- Passing the Freon liquid through an expansion valve where it evaporates to become cold (low pressure Freon).
- This cold gas runs through a series of coils that allows the gas to absorb heat and cool down the air inside the building.
HVAC units also help clean the air inside your facility by filtering the air of dust, pollen, mold spores and other allergens. Air conditioners also function as dehumidifiers as they take excess water vapor from the air and use it to help cool the unit.
