Refrigerant is pumped out of the compressor as a high pressure vapor, and it goes into the condenser inlet as such. The condenser acts as a heat exchanger, transferring heat from the refrigerant to the air which passes over the condenser fins. While in the condenser, the refrigerant will change state from a high pressure vapor to a high pressure liquid, then it moves on to the receiver-drier (on a thermal expansion valve system) or the orifice tube (on a fixed orifice tube system).

There is a split air conditioner and there is a multi-zone split air conditioner. Multi zone means that you can have two condensers in different areas.

Allows heat absorbed by the oil to be exchanged with the air that passes through the fins of the cooler. Air conditioning condensers and car radiators work the same way.

clogged filters,dirty coils condensers,evaporators

No, OSHA does not require a lunch room that has air conditioning, condensers, or heat ex-changers. The only thing OSHA regulates is that employees must have a set amount breaks depending on how many hours they are working per day.

Heat pumps use compression pumps and condensers to cool air.

The local fire marshall will be able to give you this information free of charge.

Portable air conditioning is great for work or any place where you have different preferences than other people. It would not, however, be a good replacement for a home air conditioning system.

A day and night air conditioning system does not work at all as it is a scam and it is really the same system. There are no difference to its operating systems.

Air conditioning allowed people in hot climates to be more productive. It allowed them to work in occupations that would be dangerous from the heat. Air conditioning added the element of safety to hot occupations.

The Grand Caravans (I guess because they are so long) have two separate air conditioning units (unfortunately). Separate condensers, evaporators, blowers, etc. You will need to have both serviced individually. I have owned a 1994 and a 1995 and it was the same with them.

You won't have air conditioning.You won't have air conditioning.

Central air conditioning provide a uniform distribution of cool air in your home or work place. It creates a more comfortable environment. 80% of new homes built in the United States are built with central air conditioning.

Most states require an HVAC certification for performing work on heating and air conditioning systems. While not all employees of a heating and air conditioning company need to be certified, at least one employee on the job should be.

On some systems (such as air conditioning).

As refrigerant vapor flows through the tubes, it condenses to liquid and releases heat that the air stream carries away. The condenser is on the high side.

Central air conditioning is centralling located and can be used to cool several units. It has a central control that controls temperatures for multiple rooms.

by letting the wind flow through the top and there you have the answer.

Typically an air conditioning or HVAC engineer will the deal with the installation, maintenance and servicing of air conditioning units

because that's what air conditioning does. it cools the air.

That is the correct spelling of the term "air conditioning" (air cooling).

See my reply to `How does air conditioning work` on this site. PM me if you have a specific question.

The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Program offers online reviews of air conditioning contractors. Many air conditioning contractor websites also have review pages.
