IMPORTANT AIR CONDITIONING REPAIR TERMINOLOGY
SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, an equipment efficiency rating that measures how much energy is required to cool the air. Similar to an automobile’s MPG, the higher the SEER number the more efficient the unit.
COP Coefficient of performance, an efficiency ratio that compares the amount of heat given out to the amount of energy used. Similar to an automobile’s MPG, the higher the SEER number the more efficient the unit.
BTU British Thermal Unit, the measurement of heating and air conditioning capacity. A BTU is the amount of heat that must be added to one pound of water to raise its temperature one degree Fahrenheit.
R-22 A refrigerant containing chlorine used in air conditioning systems. It has been linked to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming. Most commonly referred to by its trademarked name, Freon. The cost of R-22 has sky rocketed during its phase out period.
R-410A The refrigerant that replaces R-22. It does not contain chlorine as did R-22, but it does operate at higher operating pressures.
MATCHED SYSTEM An air conditioner, heat pump, or heating system composed of component equipment that has been certified by ARI to work as one to deliver the specified heating and cooling capacity at the designed efficiency rating.
COIL A heating or cooling component made of pipe or tubing, usually with plates or fins.
CONDENSER The outside unit of an air conditioning or heat pump system. Here the refrigerant condenses from a gas to a liquid and hot or cold air from the building is released to the outside.
LOAD CALCULATION A mathematical determination of how much cooling and heating (BTUs) an HVAC system must deliver for occupant safety and comfort. It is based on a variety of factors: square footage, building orientation, number of occupants, size and placement of rooms, number of windows/doors as well as size, amount and type of insulation, number of floors, and regional outdoor climate.
