Air Conditioning Basics

The four main components to your air conditioner are:

Condenser: The condenser is the outside metal unit and where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas entering the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered, so the gas can convert back to a liquid.

Compressor: The compressor is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrate the heat, and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.

Evaporator: The evaporator is the part of the system inside the home. In simple language, it absorbs the heat from your home.

Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.

All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat is collected in the evaporator, sent outside to the condenser. The heat is removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home.

AC Facts

An Air Conditioner Doesn’t Create Cool Air.
What happens in the AC process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes from liquid to gas and back again. During this process, the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cool.

Your AC Will Remove Humidity.
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.

Your Air Filter Needs To Be Checked And Replaced Every Three To Six Months.
(depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations)
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money, and over time can put stress on your unit and could cause a costly repair.

Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance.
Your air conditioner needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over all.

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.

At Sunbelt Service Pros, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us at 910.944.2044 for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.

“I called after hours with an emergency and was able to speak with Jacob. He said he could come that night, but it would take 90 minutes to get to my house. He was there 45 minutes later and assessed the issue and was able to take care of it. He even spent some time educating me on my unit and making sure I knew how to take care of it. He was friendly, personable, and professional. I was impressed and thankful to have someone local that did such a great job. I will be glad to recommend and use him again.”

Air Conditioner Repair in Southern Pines, NC 28387

“Jacob was fantastic! I called them at 4:30pm yesterday when my AC wasn't keeping up and the house was 5 degrees over the set temperature. They said they would have a Tech out to me by 6:00pm which was great for me, but Jacob ended up arriving at 5:00pm (a half hour after I called!). He had the whole thing diagnosed and fixed in about 15 minutes, just needed to swap out my capacitor for a new one he had on hand. He stayed until cold air was blowing and the house temperature was going down to verify his work fixed the problem. Great guy, great service, great company! I would definitely recommend them to others.”

“I am so thankful that I went with Sunbelt. Anthony my initial technician and Craig my sales representative were so kind, helpful, and incredibly knowledgable! They explained everything that was going on with my HVAC (in terms I could understand), and all the different buying options that would work for me at different budget levels since my unit had to be replaced. The guys that did the installation were efficient and had 2 units installed in one day! I will recommend sunbelt to all my family and friends!”

He is professional, knowledgeable, and explains everything very well. The problem was the heat-pump and it was fixed quickly and all is great! I was very satisfied with Anthony, he let me know to call if I had any problems. I highly recommend Sunbelt and would use again. Thank You.”


I have been a Sunbelt customer for 13 years

“I have been a Sunbelt customer for 13 years, and I am pleased to say that I have been consistently impressed with the expertise and professionalism of all the Sunbelt techs who have worked in and around my large and complex HVAC systems. Bruce O., who has done a lot of work at my home, is a very nice guy, but targeted and focused on his job; he knows these HVAC systems like the back of his hand, and his diagnoses and repairs have always been spot on. He is economically sensitive, as well, which I appreciate.

Four other chaps have worked at our home over the past decade, and all have been excellent. Although I have paid some large bills to Sunbelt, I have never felt that they were inappropriate. I have recommended this shop to several friends and colleagues.”
