How Does an Air Conditioner Work?
Air conditioners pump cool air into your house, but not the way you might be thinking. Instead of simply getting that sweet cold air into the home, air conditioners work in the same way that a refrigerator works. The key difference is that, instead of keeping such a confined area ice cold, your air conditioner could be taking care of your entire house.
An air conditioner works by removing the heat from the inside of a home. This happens in a fairly simple way. Your home constantly has air traveling through it. The ventilation system in your home helps get that hot air out and into the air conditioner that is outside.
Your AC unit is comprised of three basic parts:
The air within your home cycles through these three parts of the system.

The Repair Process
The evaporator removes the heat from your air with coolant.
Within the air conditioner unit (sometimes called an HVAC, which stands for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning), a significant amount of coolant is contained within. Coolant is very quick to absorb heat and transform into a gas.The air from within your home is forced into the evaporator through a very small tube. Here, the air makes contact with the coolant, which absorbs the heat. The more heat the coolant absorbs, the more energy it contains. This changes the physical state of the coolant from a liquid to a gas. The thermal energy from the now gaseous coolant is propelled outward.
The condenser removes more heat from the coolant.
However, once the coolant has evaporated, that means there is no liquid coolant to absorb more heat. That’s where the condenser comes in. The condenser prevents people from having to go to their HVAC unit to fill it up with coolant every time they want to cool down their house. This saves time and makes the cooling process more efficient.The evaporator has already successfully separated the hot air from the cold air. The condenser takes the hot air and forces it through a small coil. This coil absorbs the remaining heat from the air and creates more coolant for removing heat.
The compressor makes the coolant ready to absorb more heat.
While the condenser has effectively removed all heat from the coolant, the air conditioner still has to get the coolant back into a liquid state. The compressor is able to repressurize the cooler air into a liquid, creating the coolant that will absorb the hot air from inside the home.This coolant will once again absorb the heat by going back into the evaporator, starting the process all over again. While there are a multitude of variations on this three step process, many of them start from a foundation based on this essential process of cooling the home.

Air Conditioner Repair
Have you went to turn on your AC one day during a nasty heat wave only to find out it’s refusing to start? If so, it might be time to give Tex-Perts Cooling and Heating a call to see why the ol’ AC isn’t listening to you.
While some people do use their air conditioner for heating during the milder autumn and winter days, most AC breakdowns happen during the peak of summer when the air conditioning unit is being used to the fullest. It so happens that this is the exact time when you need your AC working the most – having no cooling system during a heat wave isn’t just uncomfortable, but can also be dangerous.
So, how much might an air conditioning repair by Tex-Perts Cooling and Heating cost you? Truth be told, there’s no way of knowing until our technician gets on the site. And he will get there in the shortest amount of time possible after you have made your call – unlike some other companies, we don’t make our customers wait in long lines during hot summers or cold winters.
Once there, the technician will need to assess the state of the AC unit and see what went wrong. While there are some cases where an air conditioning repair isn’t really feasible due to the amount of damage involved, most of the time we can and will repair the AC unit successfully, thereby saving the customer the hassle and expense of having to replace their air conditioning unit altogether.
Professional Air Conditioning Repair
If you’re delaying your call to us for this or that reason, don’t – your AC isn’t going to get better on its own and, most likely, the summer heat isn’t going anywhere. The longer you wait to have your home air conditioning unit repaired, the more you rob yourself of the cool comfort that you deserves. Remember: when talking about keeping your home AC unit in working order, it isn’t just you that has to endure the heat, but everyone else under your roof as well. Therefore, a timely call to Tex-Perts Cooling and Heating is the right choice for the entire family.

As noted, there’s no need to delay a call to us because you’re worrying about long waiting lines or unfair pricing – every customer call we get is treated like an emergency, especially when it involves a home air conditioning repair during a tough heat wave. Moreover, our pricing deals are some of the best you’ll find on the market and are tailored to be affordable to every type of home owner, from those with many AC units covering multiple rooms in a large house to those with a single air conditioner that just needs to work.
