Condenser - Air Conditioning A/C

The air-conditioning condenser is a radiator positioned between the car’s grille and the engine-cooling radiator in which the gaseous refrigerant sheds heat and returns to a liquid state. When air flows through the air conditioning condenser, it cools down the gaseous refrigerant inside the condenser, and enables it to exit in a liquid state, ready to go to the accumulator.

As high-pressure refrigerant is pushed from the A/C compressor, it passes through a refrigerant line and into the A/C condenser. The condenser is located by the radiator and serves a comparable function. The condenser converts high pressure, high temperature gas into high pressure somewhat lower temperature liquid, required for A/C functionality.

Taking into account its important role, the car condenser does need some extra attention. The aim is to avoid the possibility of the condenser leaking which will impact the heat of the cabin when driving at low speeds or stopping.
