Condensing units are familiar with temperature-control devices in refrigerators, air conditioners, heat pumps, and chillers. The compressor sucks the lower pressure working fluid vapor from the evaporator, raises its pressure, and sends it to the condenser, where it is condensed into a liquid with a higher pressure. The condenser is the parts of the air conditioning system that can transfer the pipe’s heat to the air near the pipe fast. Condensing units, in the form of heat, move energy by compressing a gas known as a refrigerant, they pump it through a system of coils and use the air around the coils to heat and cool spaces.
