Know the Components of a Compressor Bypass Valve

The compressor bypass valve is a valve that separates the hot air from the cold air. This allows the hot air to pass through a control valve and vent to a thermostat. When the thermostat is set to the right temperature, the compressor allows hot air to enter and the cold air to exit. However, the compressor can also allow hot air to exit even though the thermostat is set to the wrong temperature. The bypass valve is used to prevent these two things from happening.

There are several types of bypass valves and some are more efficient than others. It is important to know the differences between them and determine which one is the best for your system. The most common type of bypass valve is the dryer type and is typically attached to the thermostat of a dehumidifier. A wet/dry bypass valve can be installed to the compressor. It allows the hot air from the compressor to exit when the compressor is running and a stop/start sensor is in place on the compressor.

It is imperative that you understand all of the components in your compressor before purchasing a bypass valve. This is the only way you will be able to ensure that you are getting the best value for your money. There are many components that are important to have in your system. You should always consult with an electrician or a heating and air system engineer before making any changes to your system. They can provide valuable advice. When you are installing the bypass valve, make sure that you follow the manufacturers specifications. It is very easy to install, but it is always good to make sure that you do it correctly the first time.
