Stay Cool with All Air Heating and Air Conditioning in Lodi, Ca.
In air conditioning systems, the efficiency is determined by the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio); the annual efficiency of a central air conditioner or air conditioner heat pump. The higher the SEER, the more energy efficient the system is, and the lower the operating costs.
When choosing to replace or add an air conditioning system to your home, it’s important that the system meets the home comfort needs of you and your family.
At All Air Heating and Air Conditioning we install, service, and maintain all makes and models of air conditioners. All air conditioning systems are not alike, and there are many different factors to consider when choosing a new air conditioning system.
Here are some basic terms to help you familiarize yourself when looking into a new air conditioning system.
SEER- In air conditioning systems, the efficiency is determined by the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio); the annual efficiency of a central air conditioner or air conditioner heat pump. The higher the SEER, the more energy efficient the system is, and the lower the operating costs.
Condenser Coil- This is also known as an outdoor coil. This piece of the air conditioner removes heat from refrigerant in vapor form. When the heat is removed, the refrigerant becomes liquid and moves back to the inside of the machine.
Compressor- The compressor is usually located on the outside portion of the air conditioner. The compressor motor is a pump which moves the refrigerant from the indoor evaporator coil to the outside condenser coil and then back to the evaporator coil again.
Evaporator Coil- The evaporator coil is located on the inside of the house. The coil takes heat and moisture out of the indoor air as it crosses over the coils, reversing refrigerant from liquid to gas.
Refrigerant- The chemical used to cool air. Refrigerant expands to vapor form, gathering hot air, and then contracts to liquid form to cool the air.
Single-Stage- Like a light switch, a single-stage air conditioner is either on or off. When your home’s temperature rises above your thermostat’s setting, it turns on 100% until your comfort level is reached and then turns off completely.
Two-Stage- A two-stage air conditioner is more like a fan switch: it can be off, on, or at a medium speed. When your air conditioner only needs to cool your home a few degrees, it uses its “lower gear” to accomplish the task more efficiently. And when the cooling load is more strenuous, it uses its higher speed to cool your home quickly.
