AIR CONDITIONER COMPONENT PARTS - CONTENTS: What are the indoor and outdoor components of an air conditioning or heat pump system?. This article lists and explains the function of the basic components of an air conditioning or heat pump systems and provides detailed inspection, diagnostic, and repair advice.
Example home inspection report language is provided to describe common air conditioning system components and their defects.
If your air conditioning or heat pump system has lost its cooling capacity or won't start see REPAIR GUIDE for AIR CONDITIONERS. See How to determine the cooling capacity of air conditioning equipment if the system seems to be working but is inadequate to cool your building. Contact us to suggest text changes and additions and, if you wish, to receive online listing and credit for that contribution. The air conditioning system (and heat pump) components introduced here are discussed in detail and are illustrated by photographs and drawings throughout this website using the links at the left of these pages. We explain how to inspect, diagnose, repair, or select, purchase, and install air conditioning systems or their individual parts and components. Condensate system: water, or condensate is produced when we cool warm moist air by blowing it over the evaporator coil. EVAPORATOR COIL or COOLING COIL (also called the "cooling coil" is connected to high pressure and low pressure (suction) refrigerant lines.
Return Plenum, connected to return duct system, is the air receiving compartment which provides air to the blower fan. Supply plenum connected to supply duct system, is the air collecting compartment to which building supply ducts are connected. Air Filters located at the return duct air inlets, at one or more central return air inlets, or at the air handler unit itself are used to remove dust and debris from building air. Return air ducts and registers collect warm moist air from the occupied space and return it to the air handler unit. Thermostat(s) are used to turn the air conditioning on and off and to set the desired indoor temperature. These components are discussed in detail and are illustrated by photographs and drawings throughout this website using the links at the left of these pages.
Condensing coil receives high pressure refrigerant gas from the compressor and cools this refrigerant gas back to a liquid state. Electrical controls: shut-off switch(es) for service at the unit are provided to permit maintenance and repair of the equipment. Service valves or ports are usually present on the refrigeration lines near the compressor. I suspect that power fluctuations are more of a worry for controlling circuit boards in general.
High side pressure is on the compressor outlet side and low side pressure is on the compressor suction side. Question: We began having a problem with the unit blowing hot air and going outside to the unit finding the fan not working but after hitting a red button the unit came on and functioned properly.
Rick: residential HVAC compressor motors are typically a sealed unit that cannot be field-repaired. I would investigate the squealing first - look for a failing blower assembly, belt, or in a split system, more likely a motor.

The Wine Institute was geared up for a major fight with President Obama before the proposed federal budget was released, because some in the administration advocated eliminating the TTB, the agency that governs alcohol. The Wine Institute was ready anyway with a letter (at left) signed by seven US Senators opposing the change. That makes sense to me and I don't really understand why the Wine Institute and seven US Senators oppose it.
Barrel-aged cocktails are one of the most interesting developments in the nation's bar scene. You can sample the concept by trying High West's barrel-aged Manhattan, made from the company's own rye whiskey, Angostura bitters and sweet vermouth.
The idea of aging a cocktail is to meld the flavors, and it works very well in the "The 36th Vote." The most noticeable characteristic of this drink is the smooth mouthfeel. People often drink Manhattans as an aperitif, and this would work well, but I have found I like it after dinner, perhaps because digestion makes me lazy. He could have gone off to pasture with his 6 James Beard Awards for food writing when Gourmet magazine folded in 2009, ending his stint as restaurant critic.
Like the Huffington Post, the Daily Meal doesn't pay writers, which means it runs a grab bag of mostly crap, often with hidden agendas.
It's an interesting change for an interesting man, who co-founded Saveur magazine, is considered an authority on Catalan cuisine, and has written eloquently for just about every publication that runs thoughtful articles about food. Alcohol policy is not a big issue in 2012, but it might as well be, given the low state of discourse between the Republican candidates.

Longtime readers know I'm a Democrat, so you can take this post with as much salt as you like.
Maybe this is uncouth, but as I watched the Vintners Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Monday, I was thinking about a fistfight.
While this year's class of inductees has seven members, only three are still living, and just two took the stage. The US and EU concluded a major deal on organic food labeling last week, basically agreeing to recognize each other's certification processes. The only product left out of the agreement was wine, and once again sulfites were the culprit. However, the administration did propose what seems to me a minor change, allowing the IRS to initiate investigations and prosecutions for excise tax violations on alcohol sales. For now, I felt like I owed you this update, considering more than 10,000 people came to my blog when I broke the news that the administration was considering eliminating the TTB this year. I plan to reconstruct the posts when I get home (spoiler alert: politics and baseball, my two favorite things to try to link to wine), as well as check in with the Wine Institute on the TTB thing.
Please check out my Valentine's Day anti-column on Palate Press: Let's Take the Romance Out of Wine. If the idea of rubbing elbows with some of the great historic figures in California wine appeals to you, next Monday is your chance. The event is much more affordable this year: $175, which includes dinner and plenty of wines from Hall member-associated wineries -- as well as wines that have been served in the past at the White House. The food is good, but what makes the event unique is the unmatched opportunity for casual conversation. If you'd like to mingle with me for some reason -- normally I'm relatively interesting, but not in this crowd -- I'll be there as my role as Chairman of the Electoral College. Until this week, there has been no such thing as "organic wine" in the EU, only "wine made from organically grown grapes," a category that also exists here. Of course, we won't see these "organic wine" labels in the US because these wines won't meet US standards.
Once people learn something about wine, they move away from the "organic wine" shelf, which more than one retailer told me compares to "kosher wine" as a death knell for sales to anyone other than those who feel the obligation to buy them.
California is releasing 34,000 non-violent prisoners because of a federal court order on overcrowding, which means anybody who commits crimes against property, not people, has a pretty good chance of walking free these days.
Fortunately, the worst wine villain of this millennium was tried in federal court, not state court. It's certainly not good journalism on my part, as I worked on the news stories seven years ago about the arson. I've had delicious wines with dim sum, most recently when Jamie Kutch joined me and friends at Hong Kong Lounge and brought some of his elegant Pinots Noir. But I'm the worst person to write about wine with brunch because I confess, I never go to American-style brunch. The implications are huge, and the wine industry is afraid -- although it might be a good move for consumers. The nix-the-TTB suggestion was in a memo last year from the Office of Management and Budget to the Treasury Department. To discuss what the move might mean, I called Michael Kaiser, director of communications for Wine America, which represents wineries in dealing with Congress.
I have been cautioned to stay clear of variable-speed blower options and their sophisticated electronic controls for lack of durability. While your surmise sounds sensible, in fact across thousands of readers and comments, I have not seen a particular pattern indicating that variable speed blowers fail more frequently than their simpler single speed units. On the outlet side of the AC or heat pump compressor the refrigerant is at high pressure (over 100 psi) while on the suction side the refrigerant pressures are quite low. There is also a squealing sound when the unit turns on and a lot of noise in the cabinet where the A-coils are when the unit is turned off. The text is intended as a reference guide to help building owners operate and maintain their home effectively.
There was a tiny change proposed, allowing IRS investigators to work on excise tax violations of alcohol law.
But consider what the cost of a call-brand Manhattan is, especially with rye from High West, Utah's finest distillery ("the 36th vote" refers to the vote Utah, of all states, cast to end Prohibition.) You'll get about 15 single cocktails from the bottle. Franklin Roosevelt beat him in 1932, then quickly moved to end Prohibition and celebrated by drinking one of the first legal beers in the White House.
Rather than decide which of the remaining quartet is the most severe conservative, I thought I'd take a look at what their election might mean for wine lovers.
I doubt that anyone is going to vote for any of these guys based on how they feel about wine.
John Parducci is still around, but at age 94 he wasn't feeling hale enough to trek to St. The luminary who volunteered to introduce Peter was Margrit Mondavi, widow of Peter's brother Robert. And on a night when any number of close family members -- such as his son and heir, Peter Mondavi Jr. Sulfites are crucial for wine production; wine is not likely to have fresh fruit flavors and aromas without them. While the Obama administration considered eliminating it and dividing its duties between the FDA and the IRS, when the budget proposal came out Monday, that idea was not in it.

Here's my tale of woe: I set up two posts for this week, one imaginative, and one which I spent a day researching. Appropriately, I spent V-Day apart from my lovely wife, and the rural restaurant where I dined -- where every table other than the wine group's was set for two with candles and hearts -- played "All By Myself" over and over. I love travel, I'm having a great time, I'm eating and drinking well and the story's really interesting. Tickets are still available for the 6th Vintners Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Monday, Feb. CIA graduate chefs, some who are now culinary celebrities, will each prepare one signature dish. At winemaker dinners, you generally sit at a large table and don't get a lot of personal interaction. In covering this issue, I have spoken to several natural wine producers -- leaders in the "green wine" field -- who said they might take the steps to be certified organic wine producers if allowed to add 50 ppm of sulfites to protect their wines from bacteriological harm. EU "organic wine" will have restrictions on winemaking -- including no addition of sorbic acid -- in addition to restrictions on viticulture. The USDA, which simply does not understand wine the way the EU does, ruled in December that "organic wine" cannot contain sulfites.
This is a guy who stole from other people's wine collections, and when facing charges for embezzling, he tried to destroy the evidence by torching a giant wine warehouse, destroying 6 million bottles of wine. That's a HUGE difference, and might mean Anderson, 63 -- who has been in prison since 2007 -- never gets out.
But it was never my job to cover the trial, only the impact on the wineries involved, and it was immense. But on my own, I never think to bring wine to dim sum, even though I often eat it at noon or just after. And I don't think twice about attending wine events at lunchtime and having multiple glasses there. The Obama administration is considering eliminating the TTB, the agency currently in charge, and divvying up its duties between the IRS and the FDA. Next week, when the new federal budget proposal is delivered, we'll see if the White House is planning to go forward. Indeed for systems providing both heating and cooling we generally want a blower capable of operating at at least two different speeds for the two different modes. Another tech came out and claimed the system had excess frion, the high pressure side was at 280 and suction was 75 on the compressor.
Mostly, these are drinks you have to go out for, although there's no reason you couldn't make them yourself at home using the instructions for bartenders in the article. The rye, normally a fairly strong taste component, is detectable mainly after the finish, along with a hint of pepperiness. The Republican, Herbert Hoover, ran on a socially conservative agenda that gained him the support of the Anti-Saloon League.
I spent some time researching their backgrounds on alcohol policy and the results surprised me. But in the case of at least one of these candidates, if you're a wine lover, you should.
Then I made the mistake of opening them to make last minute tweaks in Portugal with my iPad, which is not compatible with Blogger. It will also be nice to see Richard Sanford recognized for his pioneering role on the Central Coast. European consumers who prefer to drink wine that's closer to being a natural product, but who don't want their wine to taste spoiled, will now have the benefit of official certification.
This doomed "organic wine" in the US to continue being a tiny niche product for well-meaning, uninformed consumers. Being extreamly hot outside, perhaps causing either the fan motor to kick the system off or a pressure swithch.

I plan to contact the Wine Institute as soon as I get home from Portugal (lucky me) to get more details. Normally that would be a story, but I talked to so many better-known wineries that were also devastated that I didn't even have space for it. I could make you one with orange juice, shochu and sparkling water such that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
