An Air conditioning system involves many components in your Kia such as an accumulator-drier, compressor, condenser, evaporator and expansion device. Among these components, the A/C compressor is called the heart of the air conditioning system. It pumps the refrigerant throughout the system. It also acts as a junction which divides the high-pressure and low-pressure sides of the system.
The A/C system has a high pressure side and a low pressure side which are defined as discharge and suction. The A/C compressor draws the refrigerant gas from the evaporator in the low pressure side, compresses at a high temperature and sends it to the condenser. If you are having problems with your Kia A/C compressor, you need to find a replacement as soon as possible. Discount AC Parts is a well-respected online car replacement parts store.
