A Primer on the Essential Parts of AC Units

Parts of AC UnitsLike many homeowners in Provo, you probably count on your air conditioner to work reliably and ensure your comfort throughout summer. Still, you might have little idea of how your air conditioner actually functions. At Western Heating & Air, we encourage homeowners to understand the basic parts that make up their AC units. This knowledge might not equip you to take care of repairs and maintenance on your own, but it can help you understand how your AC unit works and why proper care is essential.

Basic AC Components

Your air conditioner uses the following parts to chill and dehumidify the air in your home:

The arrangement of these parts depends on the type of air conditioner. In window AC units, these parts are situated in close proximity. In central air systems, the compressor and condenser are actually located in a separate unit outside of the house. Still, you can find these basic components in any standard air conditioning system.

Looking After Your AC Parts

With a better understanding of the parts and principles that power AC units, it’s easy to see why proper maintenance is important. The failure of just one part can derail the whole cooling cycle. If you notice signs of trouble with your air conditioner, or if you haven’t scheduled maintenance in a while, call Western Heating & Air today to keep your AC unit and parts in top condition.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
