Heat is a byproduct of the engine's combustion process. The
coolant in your carís radiator absorbs the heat. The coolant is
then circulated through the heater core before returning to the
radiator. The heating system also includes a series of air ducts,
a blower motor and fan, and temperature and duct controls, which
select the desired temperature and direct the flow of warm air.
Air Conditioning System
This system shares air ducts, controls and a blower with the
heater, but has its own refrigerant system. The air conditioning
system is comprised of the following components:
Compressor - This is a pump that pressurizes and circulates
the refrigerant through the system.
Condenser - As the refrigerant flows through the condenser, it
gives off heat and converts from gas to liquid.
Receiver/Dryer or Accumulator - This is where clean, dry
refrigerant is stored as it circulates through the system.
Orifice Tube or Expansion Valve - This is a metering device
that controls the flow of refrigerant through the system.
Evaporator Core - Refrigerant enters the evaporator core as a
liquid. Heat from the air converts the liquid refrigerant back
into a gas, which cools the air before it enters your vehicle.
