    An air conditioning system equipped in the vehicle used to provide comfort to the passenger by removing excessive heat from the passenger compartment and maintains a fair temperature. It removes heat from the interior of the vehicle and sends back to the outside of the vehicle. A refrigerant is used in the air conditioning system as a circulating medium to remove and absorb heat from the entire system. It is partly a mixture of a fluid and a gas and kept under pressure inside the system. If the pressure of the refrigerant is increased or decreased so as its temperature also varies accordingly...
