How Do Marine Ac Units Work? [SOLVED]

The compressor compresses the refrigerant into high-pressure vapor. Then the refrigerant is condensed (cooled) into a liquid by a condenser and hot air is discharged at this point 🙌 The high-pressure liquid then enters a metering device which feeds the proper amount of refrigerant to the evaporator coils 😁 These evaporator coils are part of a unit called an air handler. The unit responsible for cooling the air conditioner is the air handler. Refrigerant goes into the hot coils of the hot-evaporator and evaporates to low-pressure gaseous form. Evaporation creates cool air which is distributed through the fans. [1]

The experts agree. westmarine.comAir distribution systems: Cabin water is drawn through an return air grille into the unit, or air handler. This is the final step. cooled or warmed It is then forced back into the cabin by a ducting device. To ensure proper circulation, the air should be blown high into the cabin away from the return grille. You can install plenums in your ducting, which will allow you to have multiple discharge grilles in one or several cabins. It is recommended that an insulated conduit be installed to avoid secondary condensation. An air filterRegular cleaning of the air filter, which is located at the cooling unit and on the return grille must be done. [4]
