What is an Air Conditioner Condenser?

Air conditioning is an incredible invention, one we are all thankful for. AC, as we know it today, was first devised in 1902 by a young man named Willis Carrier. It is said that he stood on a train station platform in Pittsburgh, peering into the fog. Suddenly, he realized he could dry air by passing it through the water to create fog. But even into the 1930s, air conditioning was used only in movie theaters and other luxurious places, but it was not until the 1950s, in the post-World War II economic boom, that residential air conditioning became popular. Suddenly, more than 1 million air conditioning units were sold in 1953 alone. By the 70s, window units were losing their popularity as the central air was developed. The units consisted of a condenser, coils, and a fan. Today, however, 84% – 87% of Americans use air conditioning. According to the Census Bureau, who reported on the Twin Cities metro homes, 74% use central air while 22% use window units. Studies have also shown that air conditioners use about 6% of all electricity produced in the United States. Did you know that on average, it costs between $0.36 and $0.70 to use an air conditioner for just one hour?

HVAC Direct explains the air conditioner condenser

You may be wondering, “What is an air conditioner condenser unit?” Air condensers are the outdoor portion of an air conditioner or heat pump that either release or collect heat, depending on the time of year. It has a heat exchanger section that cools down and condenses incoming refrigerant vapor into liquid. The compressor is used to raise the pressure of the refrigerant and move it along, and the fan blows outside air through the heat exchanger section to cool the air. has the air conditioner condenser… and more, in inventory
