Before understanding how the A/C system works, wrap your head around the fact that the air conditioning system does not create cool air. Wait, what? Instead, the heat and moisture are taken out of your car, leaving cold, dry air behind.

How the A/C System Works

  • Refrigerant, a compound liquid/gas mixture, enters the compressor as a gas.
  • The refrigerant becomes very hot under pressure in the compressor.
  • Next, in the condenser, heat is removed, and the refrigerant cools and becomes a high-pressure liquid.
  • Then, the receiver/dryer absorbs moisture with a drying agent so the liquid can be transferred to the evaporator.
  • The expansion valve then regulates the compound.
  • The liquid enters the evaporator and turns into a gas again, which absorbs heat from the cabin.
  • When it leaves the evaporator, it takes the heat with it, and the blowing fan moves cold air throughout the car.
