What a great relief it is too have an air conditioning system in your
car, especially on an extremely warm day. On colder months, you may not
realize how important it is but come summer, you would appreciate the
high level of comfort it provides. Newer vehicles such as those from
Chevrolet come with advanced air conditioning systems like dual and
three-zone air conditioning with separate front and rear controls and
air-filtration system that make your ride more comfortable and
worry-free. Although having excellent powertrain, suspension and
drivetrain components creates an excellent statement of your Chevrolet
vehicle's performance, comfort features such as the AC make your Chevy
car, truck, van or SUV, even more desirable.
It is important that you check your vehicle's AC system to ensure a
hassle-free ride. One of the most important things to examine on your
AC is the A/C condenser, which is often mistaken as the radiator
because they look alike and perform almost similar function. The
condenser is situated just in front of the radiator. In some vehicles,
however, the condenser is located somewhere else for improved
aerodynamic. The radiator cools off the coolant mixture, thus,
dissipates heat produced by the engine while the AC condenser
dissipates heat coming from the car's interior. The condenser must have
good airflow in order to radiate heat. In rear wheel drive vehicles,
air flow comes from the engine's cooling fan while in front wheel
drives, from one or more cooling fans.
The hot air from the vehicle's interior is forced into a cold
evaporator and is cooled off as it gives off heat to the refrigerant.
While the cold air is sent back to the car's interior, the refrigerant,
usually Freon gas, is compressed in the compressor and then sent to the
condenser where it is cooled off through the cool air flow provided by
the engine fan. At the condenser, the refrigerant transfers the heat
absorbed from the car and is converted to high pressure liquid. As the
refrigerant condenses into liquid, the heat is abstracted and released
to the atmosphere. The high-pressure liquid goes through the expansion
valve and to the evaporator where refrigerants again absorb large
amount of heat from the warm cabin air.
