Honda AC Condenser Parts
Your Honda air conditioning system is what is going to keep you cool on those hot summer days. It helps regulate the air temperature inside your passenger cabin and can also assist with your heating system. So making sure all components of your Honda AC are working properly will help you prolong the life of your air conditioning system. In this article, we are going to focus on your Honda A/C condenser. We will go over the other components of your Honda AC and also take a look at the importance of the Honda air conditioning condenser.
Your air conditioning system will be made of several components that work together to get that cold air out to you. The air conditioning system is a bit intricate since it relies on all parts working together. If one part does not work properly it not only stops the flow of cold air but it can also damage other parts of the system. The components of your Honda A/C system are the compressor, condenser, evaporator, drier or accumulator, and the thermal expansion valve. Let’s take a look at how the whole system works so we can better understand the function of the Honda AC condenser.
The compressor in your air conditioning system works by pressurizing the refrigerant and pumping it throughout the system. This pressurized gas is then sent to the condenser. The Honda condenser will take the high-pressure refrigerant gas in order to cool it. This cooling process turns the gas into liquid form and also releases heat during the process. The evaporator is also like a small radiator that allows the refrigerant to evaporate from liquid to gas and also absorb heat. The thermal expansion valve will control the flow of the really cold refrigerant to the evaporator in order to regulate how cold the air gets. The drier or accumulator will catch any liquid that tries to get back into the compressor. Since the compressor can only pressurize gas, liquid refrigerant will damage it so the drier or accumulator has to absorb it using desiccant.
Now let’s take a deeper look at the function of the Honda A/C condenser. The Honda condenser is one of the heat exchangers in the A/C system. The Honda air conditioning condenser looks like a radiator and is actually located in front of the car’s radiator. The Honda condenser shares the airflow of the main radiator and will usually contain its own cooling fans that turn on when the air conditioning system is on. Like discussed before, the job of the condenser is to take the high-pressure refrigerant from the condenser and cool it down. This condenses the refrigerant gas into a cooler high-pressure liquid and releases heat. The heat is then removed into the atmosphere through the air flowing in the condenser.
Some reasons that your Honda AC condensers could get damaged are:
- External blockage from debris getting trapped in the condenser
- Metal particles from a damaged condenser getting passed to the condenser
- Leaking which could be due to seam or weld failure
