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.

Easton Frisby Did a fantastic job on maintenance and repair of our furnace. He answered many of my questions that were very complicated and couldn’t be answered by previous HVAC technicians from other companies. I hate paying money for things like air conditioner and heating maintenance, but they did such a good job that I signed up for a maintenance plan.

Taylor was awesome and able to return in a timely matter with part needed. Jeff was able to quickly diagnose what was going on with my system! Kayla was very helpful along with Rachel in office getting my rental unit scheduled very fast compared to other companies.

The technician, Brennan, was exceptional! During our follow up call he explained everything about the unit and its performance in detail, the adjustments made to improve functionality, and recommended an item I will have have done this coming year. Can’t say enough good things about Western Heating & Air!
