In this HVAC Video, I give a Tutorial to Explain the Refrigeration Cycle with Superheat and Subcooling Step by Step, Detailed and Concise! I go over how the Basic Refrigeration Cycle works from where the refrigerant enters the vapor compressor as it goes completely through the system, what the saturated state is, what superheat, total superheat, and subcooling are, as well as other detailed comments as we go through the system.

Thank you much!!! Very helpful

Francisco Ramos says:

Yes I was funny wrong heat in gargre

Ashroyer86 says:

How much of a pressure change coming out of the condenser? Since heat corresponds to temp.

MajorKee says:

Am I the only one who gets bothered by the fact that subcool is in red and super heat is in blue. I know that’s how the hoses are set up on the gauges but that always gets me a bit confused

Jonathan Carbajal says:

What a great video!!! Thanks for explaining 🙏🏻

Rene Cuevas says:

Nice presentation

Rene Cuevas says:

Need more Volume pls tnks

Rene Cuevas says:

Been a svc tech 30 yrs and still watch this video to keep up with the basics to teach the newbies on the Trade

Michael Centeno Silva says:

You're the best teacher!

Johnny Parterlee says:

Thanks a ton, was asked this question for a job interview. now I know!

Victor Correa says:

thank you so much for this, its helped me understand refrigeration cycle in full. I was having trouble fully understanding some points in class and this video along with your superheat/subcool have cleared those issues up for me. subscribing to your channel for sure!

Cortlandt Att says:

Awesome how you explain.
Thank you

Jesse S says:

Great explanation.

Why do I always hear “the heat is dumped outside,”” (at the condensing coil). Indicating that the heat you feel from the outdoor unit is from inside the building?

legendslayer 289 says:

Cooga shaca cooga Shaka oh nothing just resurrecting my WiFi router so I can learn this

Broshugan says:

91C US Army, thanks for the help!

Jake Hojo says:

Why is it called superheat when it's coldest and subcool at its highest?

Mister Revealator says:

I just started in the field. This video was extremely helpful! Thank you!

elkvis says:

Saturated state, where gas and liquid exist at the same time, sounds an awful lot like the definition of a supercritical fluid.

Meximon says:

Sigh, yet another guy who manages to better explain in 4min what my prof couldn't in 2h of lecture.

Bob Parks says:

You are incorrect

Flyboy 0711 says:

HI @AC Service Tech LLC What happens if the airduct is partially blocked? Is seems to produce a higher temperature output. Any clues?
