How Does Your Vehicle A/C Work?
Your vehicle’s air conditioner cools and dehumidifies your cabin’s air by circulating a chemical refrigerant through a series of mechanical components. The system’s fan then blows air across the chilled tubes into your cabin. The system continuously pressurizes and cools the refrigerant as it circulates and removes the heat and humidity from your vehicle’s cabin.
Automotive Air Conditioner Components
- Compressor: pumps refrigerant into the Condenser.
- Condenser: compresses the refrigerant into a cold liquid.
- Expansion valve: lowers the system pressure so the refrigerant can become a cold vapor.
- Evaporator: cold refrigerant travels through the Evaporator coils. The blower fan pushes warm air across the cold coils, and cold air is blown into your cabin.
The refrigerant warms as it absorbs the heat from your cabin. It travels back into the Compressor and the whole process starts again.

Excalibur A/C Customers Say …
We were experiencing a progressive problem with the A/C not cooling well. Call Excalibur and spoke with Brad. He advised to bring it in and they would take a look. No scheduling an appointment, no drop it off, no BS, just a straight yes we are busy but we will work you in. Upon arrival I met Brad(for the first time) and he stated just a minute and i get a service technician. Almost immediately i was greeted by the technician. After discussing the problem he took the vehicle. Approximately and hour later he was back advised the problem was relatively minor, that the A/C was now cooling properly and he was done. The next pleasant surprise came when I was told the amount of the bill. I was very pleased and will use them in the future.
