AC CONDENSERS IN GREENSBORO, NC 27405

Air Conditioning Condensers are usually made of aluminum. In the past, some were constructed from copper/brass.

The AC Condenser is really just another heat exchange. It’s only function is to remove the heat from the air conditioning system’s refrigerant (Freon)

Condensers look very much like radiators, but are usually a little thinner. Just like a radiator, the condenser depends on the air blowing across them to cool the refrigerant. For that reason, they are usually located in front of the radiator.

Like aluminum radiators, condensers are also constructed as a series of tubes with fins around them.

The air conditioning system’s evaporator absorbs the heat from the air entering the vehicle. The heat is absorbed by the refrigerant of Freon. The refrigerant is pumped to the condenser to release the heat the refrigerant absorbed while it was flowing through the evaporator.

The condenser can be compared to a radiator in an engine cooling system: The radiator releases heat from the hot engine coolant passing through it, to the atmosphere. The air conditioning condenser releases heat from the hot A/C system refrigerant passing through it, to the atmosphere.

Regardless of whether the condenser is made of copper tube/aluminum fins or all aluminum construction, the condensers only function is to remove the heat from the refrigerant to keep your car’s air conditioning system blowing cold air!

THINGS THAT CAN GO WRONG WITH AIR CONDITIONING CONDENSERS

Just like radiators, condensers are also susceptible to external blockage, mostly from things like leaves, insects, or even dust. They should be well cleaned as part of a regular maintenance schedule.

Condensers are also sualumisceptible to severe internal blockage after a compressor failure. Metal particles and other debris from the failing compressor move into the condenser with the refrigerant, and can quickly block the very small passages inside the condenser. In some instances, it may be possible to flush this debris from inside the condenser, but in many cases, the blockage is so severe that the condenser must be replaced.

Like other heat transfer components including radiators and evaporators, condensers can suffer a seam or weld failure. That will result in leakage.

When it comes to heat exchanges, condensers are somewhat unique because of their “up front” mounting location – usually right in front of the radiator. That means they can easily suffer physical damage from debris like small stones and such kicked up off the road, or from front-end collisions.

In the vast majority of circumstances, internally clogged, leaking, or damaged condensers are not repaired, but replaced with new units.
