Air Conditioning Basics

The four main components to your air conditioner are:

Condenser: The condenser is the outside metal unit and where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas entering the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered, so the gas can convert back to a liquid.

Compressor: The compressor is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrate the heat, and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.

Evaporator: The evaporator is the part of the system inside the home. In simple language, it absorbs the heat from your home.

Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.

All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat is collected in the evaporator, sent outside to the condenser. The heat is removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home.

AC Facts

An Air Conditioner Doesn’t Create Cool Air.
What happens in the AC process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes from liquid to gas and back again. During this process, the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cool.

Your AC Will Remove Humidity.
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.

Your Air Filter Needs To Be Checked And Replaced Every Three To Six Months.
(depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations)
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money, and over time can put stress on your unit and could cause a costly repair.

Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance.
Your air conditioner needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over all.

SEER
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.

Air Conditioner Replacement in Edgewater, MD 21037

“On April 29 , our whole house a/c system failed to start up. I troubleshot the system and found the compressor locked up.I immediately placed a call in to Bay Breeze. They dispatched a service tech " Justin", who arrived on time , and troubleshot the system. After going over the entire HVAC system, it was determined that our 18 year old system had failed. It was good while it lasted. Justin discussed the options , for which we selected to rip out and reinstall a new system. Following our conversation , Justin made a call back to the office and had a service writer dispatched. Early the following day , Shari arrived, explained all our options, and prices. She inspected the system , took the necessary measurements , and produced the estimate on site. On , May 1 , the installation team arrived. Dave , Clarence and Ethan , all very polite, clean uniforms, geared up , inspected the old unit and began the rip out. They explained every step that they would take for the rip out and install. After the new unit was installed, they asked me to inspect the work and approve prior to charging the system. The craftsmanship was superior, no trash or dirt on the floor, no old parts left lying around. I approved the installation , they set about charging the system and then running it through the programs. The system ran flawlessly. The system is super quiet, and super cold. I give Shari , Dave , Clarence Justin and Ethan five stars , a Five Star Team. I suppose that this work ethic comes from the company leadership and it shows. Thank You. I recommend this company highly.
Since writing this review, We had a return visit from Shari. She came out to do a followup inspection. She took a punch list and inspected the entire installation. She sat with me and asked me questions about how the installation day went, how was the units performance, how was the work crew. All was five star.” – Kevin R.

“Bay Breeze, and particularly Kevin, have been servicing my home HVAC for years, including installing a Mitsubishi mini AC unit in my son’s room that has been fantastic in cooling an unusually warm room above the garage. Bay Breeze is always courteous, professional and on-time! Kevin makes sure I am good with everything and the systems are working properly before he leaves. I would definitely recommend Bay Breeze.”
