A heat exchanger is a component that allows heat transport between various fluids separate from them coming into direct contact.
A heat exchanger will either have a coil or plate design and be effective in cooling and heating homes.
To understand how a heat exchanger works, you have to know how it cools and heats your home. A heat exchanger removes heat from the indoors to the outdoors using a refrigerant for an air conditioning system. This refrigerant is used to carry, absorb and eventually release heat as it changes from gas to liquid. In the AC, the refrigerant channels the heat through unusual components while it absorbs the heat as it adjusts to water vapor and cools the room. When the refrigerant turns into vapor, It goes into a compressor located outdoors, converting into a high-pressure boiling gas. The refrigerant then moves into the condenser, where the air gets to flow over the condenser carrying heat with it. This causes the refrigerant to cool and change back into a cool high-pressure liquid. As the refrigerant travels back to the evaporator, it cools off more in the expansion valve. The gas gas furnace uses a heat exchanger, which is in an airtight vessel with various openings. The burners in the gas gas furnace generate combustion gases sent through the first opening into the heat exchanger while the blower channels indoor air over the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger then uses the combustion gases to boiling the air and. The boiling air is then distributed around your home. The combustion gases are then released outside through the other opening called the flue.
