During most of the year, people tend to take advantage of the comfortable cabin temperatures that can be controlled with a simple turn of the air conditioner dial — then summer hits. When it’s hot outside, the cooling capabilities of your car suddenly become very important. That’s why you should know about the components and how to care for them. Let’s start with a quick explanation of the parts of your car A/C system.
This component compresses low-pressure refrigerant gas into a high-pressure, high-temperature gas. After the conversion, the compressor pumps the less stable gas into the condenser.
The condenser takes the high-pressure, high-temperature gas from your compressor and turns it into a liquid.
After the compressor turns the gas into a liquid, the liquid moves to the evaporator. This is where water is evaporated from the liquid so what remains can be reverted back into a gas to be blown into your cabin with help from fans.
