AC Compressors

A compressor is the driving component in an Arizona air conditioning or refrigeration unit. An air conditioner uses a fluid called refrigerant (usually freon) to cool the air because it flows freely, it heats and cools rapidly, and it can change from a liquid to a gas quickly. When freon is compressed and released, it gets very cold and cools the coils in your AC unit. When the fan forces the air through these cold cools… that’s what cools the air down for distribution throughout the home or building.

The compressor is what creates the pressure. As the refrigerant is fed into the compressor, it is forced to the sides of the tank by rapidly spinning fan blades. When this happens, the refrigerant becomes pressurized and is shot out the other end of the compressor and into the coils where the cooling, heating, and state changes occur over and over again in a cycle.

Unfortunately, compressors don’t last forever. If the air conditioner in your Arizona home has stopped functioning properly, you may need a new compressor.
