How Does An Air Conditioner Work?

Back to Basics

Do you know “How Air Conditioners Work?”

When I started working with Controlled Release about 6 years ago, I didn’t have the slightest clue how an Air Conditioner worked. Obviously, that information is vital in the HVAC Industry.

The President of our company, Lynn Burkhart, states all the time that if you don’t know “how or why” something is the way that it is, you aren’t going to understand it at all.

The majority of you may already know how an Air Conditioner works but the truth is there are those few who don’t know how it works (like me 6 years ago).

For those of you who do know, please chime in with comments and links to sites that you feel are super helpful for those of us who are still in the process of understanding the basics. 

If you are one that doesn’t know how an air conditioner works, check out this simple, yet awesome, 2 minute video below created by Genteq Motors that explains “How an Air Conditioner Works”.

“Perks” of Maintaining Your Air Conditioner

Maintaining your air conditioner is not a good idea, it’s a excellent idea. 

Isn’t is just the most thrilling thing when it’s 100 degrees outside and your Air Conditioner decides to call in sick that day? Leaving you to handle whatever issue is going on and having to call in your local HVAC Contractor. Take a look at the young man below, it’s summer time and he needs not be worried about being cool in the summer. But, for some reason, he is….

How about when it’s winter time. Do you want to be cold & shivering under twenty blankets? Or would you rather be cuddled up on the couch, drinking some hot chocolate, and enjoying family time? Seems like an easy answer, Right? The gentleman in the green jimmies below, is clearly having some HVAC issues and not able to enjoy anything mentioned.

Other than being cool in the summer and warm in the winter, there are a MANY MORE PERKS to maintaining your HVAC system.

Over a years time, dirt builds up on the coil. While the filter helps to slow down the soiling process, the dirt will still find it’s way to your coils. Dirt on coils decreases your airflow, and insulates the coil. As far as the outside coils, they too, become very dirty. Mowing the grass, leaves falling from trees, and wind blowing dust….these all contribute to the dirt build up on the coils.

When regular PM’s are done, you will achieve the following:

  • Preventing costly breakdowns
  • Reducing energy costs
  • Extending the life of the equipment
  • Improving system performance
  • Making the system safer

One of the ways to accomplish these goals are to clean and coat your HVAC system with products that will not eat away at your coils, nor inhibit heat transfer.

Say hello to a Coil Cleaning Kit. It has everything you need to solve any build up problems on your coils. Better yet, it will last a full year. It comes with our Instant Powder Kegs coil cleaner and First Strike Micro Coat easy to use annual coating.

Instant Powder Kegs is a powdered coil cleaner, that is easy to use, clean up and transport. Just mix with water, spray on and rinse.The coil cleaner is removing the dirt and build up on the coils. Then, apply the First Strike Micro Coat which is an annual coating that will repel anything from sticking to your coil. Leaving you with a years worth of protection on your coil.

What is a Macro Fan?

We always want to stay up to date on new interesting things in the HVAC industry. Just last week, we saw a Facebook picture of a huge fan! We’d never seen anything like it. So, of course, we had to reach out to our client & get some more info.

Our clients at Woodall Heating and Cooling just recently installed their first 24′ Macro Air Fan. You’re probably asking yourself the same question we were. What is a Macro Fan?

The Macro Fan is an industrial ceiling fan that is used to keep the work place cool at an affordable price.  It is a high-volume low-speed (HVLS) fan.  They are used in commercial and industrial settings.  They are mostly ceiling fans although some come as a pole mounted fan.  They are used to supplement HVAC Systems and help to maintain a constant temperature and humidity.

Blake Woodall said it was a very easy process, they installed it in a warehouse in the city of Alabama. Blake mentioned that they were able to use a scissor lift which really helped them out with the installation. Had they used ladders instead, the process would’ve taken a lot longer.

Blake was excited to let us know that the Macro Fan was a lot less expensive than other fan’s on the market. Some of the features are that it comes with a variable speed motor and a touch screen pad to control it.  Very cool!

If you have any questions on Macro Fan’s, you know who to call. Woodall Heating & Cooling in Enterprise Alabama. Be sure to go check out their Website & Facebook

Do you have any unique applications that you’d like to tell us about? We’d love to hear about it.
