The Basics of HVAC Operation

Before you make the call to have your unit checked, a basic understanding of how it operates may save you money.


  1. Compressor: This increases the pressure of the refrigerant so that it will accept the maximum amount of heat from the air.
  2. Condenser: Coils that move heat to or from the outside air.
  3. Evaporator: Coils that move heat to or from the air inside the home.
  4. Air handler: Fan that blows the air into the ducts of the home. Components 1, 2, 3 and 4 are found in all standard air conditioners.
  5. Reversing valve:Changes the heat pump from air conditioning to heating, and vice versa. This is not part of the thermostat.
