UNDERSTAND HOW AUTO AIR WORKS?  

Here are a few things to know about air conditioning theory of operation:

1.)  Refrigerant has a unique characteristic in which it's temperature can be controlled by controlling it's pressure.  When R12/134 has high pressure, it gets hot, and conversely, when it's pressure is reduced, it gets cold.

2.)  Airflow has a lot to do with the efficiency of a cooling or refrigeration system.

3.)  Routine maintenance done to a working airconditioning system can make it last much longer than one that is not maintained.

4.)  The basic system requires a group of components.  They are:

Compressor

Cycling Switch

Condensor

Plumbing

Drier

Air Ducting

Expansion Device

Orifice Tube

Evaporator

Accumulator
