Not only does the ComfortLink™ II XL824 monitor indoor and outdoor temperatures so you can adjust your system to be energy-efficient, but it also tells you when it’s time to change a filter or schedule routine maintenance.

How does my Air Conditioner work exactly?

The air conditioner in a central heating and cooling system provides cool air through ductwork inside your home, by providing a process that draws out the warm air inside, removing its heat.

In a split system, the compressor condenses and circulates the refrigerant through the outdoor unit, changing it from a gas to a liquid. The liquid is then forced through the indoor evaporator coil or cooling compartment. The indoor unit’s fan circulates the inside air to pass across the evaporator fins. The evaporator’s metal fins exchange the thermal energy with the air around it. There, the refrigerant turns from liquid into vapor, removing any heat from the surrounding air. As the heat is removed from the air, the air is cooled and blown back into the house.

From that point, the condenser or outdoor unit then turns the refrigerant vapor back into a liquid, removing any heat. By the time the fluid leaves the evaporator again, it is a cool, low pressure gas, eventually returning to the condensor to begin its trip all over again. This process continues again and again until your home reaches the cooling temperature you want, as programmed and sensed by your thermostat setting.

Meet Michael Gray

You can control your home comfort with perfect air and save energy with a new thermostat.

Hello Washington County, Utah and surrounding areas! Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Michael Gray from Temecula, California. I, along with my wife Suzanne, son Wyatt and daughter Morgan, recently relocated to Saint George. After many years of vacationing here and even working in this fine city for a short time over a decade ago, we decided it was time to call Saint George home.

I come here with a broad background in construction, manufacturing, and HVAC. I began my HVAC career twelve years ago in San Diego, California, working for Xnergy as an apprentice technician and later advancing to journeyman. In seemingly no time, I was offered a position as a factory service technician for Trane San Diego where I furthered my knowledge in HVAC, servicing large commercial properties such as hospitals, casinos, airports, office buildings, shopping malls, military bases, defense contractors and power plants.

Now, I feel extremely fortunate to work for S&S Mechanical, where the owner and service manager are exceptionally great people. Although my accounts are on a far smaller scale, I am enjoying the slower pace and the friendlier atmosphere of Southern Utah.

S&S Mechanical Wants to Help

Here are two tips to help
ensure your home is prepared for the upcoming hot months.

Have a programmable thermostat installed and set it for a few degrees warmer when you are away from home or asleep.

Minimize your use of bathroom and kitchen ventilation fans, because in an hour or so they can exhaust a significant amount of your cooled air.
