Excellent Service in Elgin, TX 78621

“I have used Wilson’s Heating and Air for several years and have been extremely happy with the service. Stephen Wilson is very personable, and reliable. He has always been fair in his business dealings and you can count on him to come out when you have problems. I have had many dealings with other A/C companies in the past and have never been able to really count on anyone to respond like Wilson’s AC. I would not hesitate to provide a reference.”

Air Conditioner Repair in Round Rock, TX 78664

“My Heat/Air system recently ceased working after a storm. I called and ask Stephen Wilson, who had installed the system two summers ago to come and diagnose the problem. Stephen worked my need in between other appointments on the same morning I called. Apparently, the breaker had been tripped during the recent storm. He pointed out where the breaker was and said there was no charge for this call. Since he was there, I asked him to look at a new thermostat I had purchase to see if it met my needs. After the discussion, I decided to return the very expensive one and purchased a more economical (MUCH simpler) one from Stephen. I also had been waiting for his new Maintenance Service, which he told me about on a service call last summer. With the discount and the Maintenance plan, I got a great deal! I highly recommend Wilson’s Heating and Air!”

How Does Air Conditioning Work?

June 18, 2018

An air conditioner is a standard appliance in interior comfort. The Energy Information Administration reports that 87% of homes have an AC unit and they account for almost 20% of yearly electricity consumption in the US. At Wilson’s Heating & Air, we believe that knowledge is power – the more you know about the appliances you are using, the more effectively you can operate them.

The modern air conditioner was invented in 1902 by Willis Havilard Carrier. It was invented to solve the humidity problem at a printing plant in Brooklyn. The concept of using chilled water to cool down certain areas predates his invention by centuries, however it is Carrier who is credited with inventing a system of chilled coils to maintain a constant temperature.

<h2>There are four main components of your air conditioner:</h2>

Evaporator – receives the liquid refrigerant

Condenser – facilitates the heat transfer

Expansion valve – regulates the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator

Compressor – pump that pressurizes the refrigerant

The refrigeration cycle inside your {AC unit} is as follows. It starts as a liquid and then goes through phase conversion to gas. Through this conversion it absorbs heat. It is then compressed and pushed through another phase transition back to liquid. Refrigerant is a chemical that allows this phase conversion to occur at low temperatures and it is this conversion cycle that creates what we know as modern air conditioning. The appliance forces this conversion to occur over and over again within a closed coil system.

Fans inside the unit blow warm air over the evaporator. The refrigerant inside picks up the temperature of the air. As it absorbs the heat from the air it turns into a vapor. The refrigerant goes from being a cold liquid to a hot vapor. The unit blows the cool air out while the hot refrigerant vapor passes into the compressor and gets compressed to an even higher pressure and temp. This then flows over the condenser which turns it back to a liquid and the heat is radiated away. Basically, the heat from the air is absorbed by the refrigerant and carried through the AC system to be pushed out the other side, while the cooled air is pushed inside.

An air conditioner also works as a humidifier and dehumidifier. You may have a moisture collection pan on your unit. As the refrigerant absorbs heat it also absorbs the moisture from the air.
