Air Conditioning Basics
The four main components to your air conditioner are:
Condenser: The condenser is the outside metal unit and where the gas from the compressor is condensed into a liquid. The gas entering the condenser is very hot. The temperature is then lowered, so the gas can convert back to a liquid.
Compressor: The compressor is inside the condenser. It circulates the pressurized refrigerant, to concentrate the heat, and changes the low pressure gas to high pressure.
Evaporator: The evaporator is the part of the system inside the home. In simple language, it absorbs the heat from your home.
Expansion Valve: The expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant in your system.
All of these pieces are connected by a copper tube that handles refrigerant, creating a closed loop. Heat is collected in the evaporator, sent outside to the condenser. The heat is removed, and the cool air is recirculated back into your home.

An air conditioner doesn’t create cool air.
What happens in the AC process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes from liquid to gas and back again. During this process, the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side, it is cool.
Your AC will remove humidity.
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level in your home by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.
Your air filter needs to be checked and replaced every three to six months (depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations).
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money, and over time can put stress on your unit and could cause a costly repair.
Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.
Your air conditioner needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over all.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.
At Scottsdale Air Heating and Cooling, we provide all the services you need to keep your AC running in top-notch shape. Call us for repairs, maintenance, or new-system installation.
How Much Money Can You Save with a New Air Conditioner?
Our SEER energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit’s SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home’s system for a more accurate calculation.

Air Conditioner Repair in Gilbert, AZ 85296
“Labor day weekend we had our upstairs HVAC unit stop working (probably the worst time to expect a service response from anyone). Bottom line; Scottsdale Air was the only company that even returned my call for repair. The technician (Justin) followed up and was very professional and courteous. He was able to diagnose and resolve the problem relatively quickly. We would definitely use Scottsdale Air again.”

“Our AC was having issues late in the day. We called and talked to the after hours tech John Areikat who came the next morning as promised. John diagnosed the problem and promptly repaired the unit. He was professional and stayed until he was certain the unit was operating at peak level. We have used Scottsdale Air three times in the past year. We have had an excellent experience with their customer service and maintenance. We recommend this company to anyone who has AC problems.”

Your Team Is the Best
“Several people in our neighborhood have often referred Scottsdale Air as the best service provider in our area. Wow – were they spot on. I called on a Saturday and after speaking with the Answering Service, Eric D called me back in less that 15 minutes and was on my doorstep in less than an hour. Please note, we leave 30 minutes from town and he still responded that quickly. He was very professional and took care of the problem immediately and had us up and back with full A/C in less than two hours from the original call. Your team is the best and I will be using Scottsdale Air for my future operation and maintenance services. I am with one of the largest Construction Firms in the U.S. and I understand the industry; with confidence I can say your organization is top notch / best in class. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Personable, Professional, Patient
“Jerry was awesome! He took the necessary Time to really look for the true root cause analysis of our air conditioning problem rather than just defaulting to some type of Band-Aid approach so he could move on to the next customer. He was personable, professional, patient, and really did a significant amount of detective work. We have used Scottsdale Air many times in the past with various degrees of satisfaction but having the opportunity to work with Jerry on this particular problem was incredibly refreshing and a restoration of confidence to continue to use Scottsdale Air in the future. THANK YOU JERRY!!!!!!”
