Your home’s air conditioner is a complex piece of machinery and understanding the basics of how it works is something every homeowner should know. It’s especially important to understand refrigerants because common AC scams often revolve around this vital component. 

Refrigerant is the chemical that’s primarily responsible for your AC’s ability to cool your home. With the help of the compressor, condenser, and evaporator, various pressures are imposed on the refrigerant causing it to transform physically between liquid and gas states.
