The most important thing in AC (Air Conditioner) is Compressor. Compressor is a type of mechanical device that is used to increase the pressure of gas or air. Air is compressible, so the use of compressor increases the air pressure by reducing the volume of air.
The main thing in AC is the compressor. Compressor is a type of mechanical device used to increase gas or air pressure. Air is compressible, so the use of compressor increases the air pressure by reducing the volume of air. Compressor is also used in fridge and AC.
How does AC work?When refrigerant or air cooling material comes out from the evaporator of the air conditioner, it takes the form of low pressure gas. The refrigerant absorbs heat inside itself. To release that heat, the refrigerant has to pass through higher temperatures and more pressures.
The compressor of AC tightens the molecules of the refrigerant as gas. This process increases both temperature and pressure. As the heat moves from the hot to the cold surface, the heat whose temperature is high, it goes out towards the cold air i.e. outside and cools out with the help of condenser.
How long does an AC compressor last?
AC compressors last for 10 to 12 years. If before that there is any problem in your compressor, then you need to show the manufacturer or mechanic of AC.
What causes AC compressor failure?
Compressor of AC can be spoiled due to dirty coil, power problem, dirt in the AC system, less oil lubrication, suction line jamming, excess refrigerant etc.
Symptoms of compressor failure
Symptoms such as hot air coming in place of cold air, strange sound from AC, leakage in air conditioning unit, no compressor on, low air etc. indicate that there is a problem in the compressor.
