A top name in passenger and luxury vehicles, Toyota provides air-conditioning systems for additional passenger comfort. (luxury yellow dirty suv bmw x5 speed on road image by alma_sacra from Fotolia.com)

A best seller in standard model passenger cars as well as luxury models, Toyota vehicles are considered some of the best performers in its field. Included in the many features standard to the vehicle is the air-conditioning system, which helps regulate both the temperature and humidity within the interior of the vehicle. The newest Toyota models also boast temperature controls in the front and rear passenger areas that operate off a standard air-conditioning system model.


The compressor portion of the Toyota air-conditioning system acts as the heart of the air conditioner. The compressor functions by providing movement of the refrigerant gas, known as Freon, within the pipes of the air-conditioning unit. Freon is combination of liquid and gas that is circulated through the air-conditioning system after being compressed within the compressor. This air, which travels to the evaporator, is further compressed within the compressor. As part of the compressor unit, the air-conditioning clutch is mounted at the front part of the compressor. Generally electromagnetic in construction, the clutch is empowered through the individual commands of the air-conditioning unit.


Through the expansion valve, which assists in the expansion and contraction of the Freon and functions between the condenser and the evaporator, the refrigerant is pushed into the evaporator unit of the air-conditioning system. Situated in the front part of the evaporator is a blower fan that moves air across the evaporator. In addition to the cooling that occurs with the aid of the fan, heat from the refrigerant liquid is absorbed with the assistance of warm air blown into the evaporator.


Each of the parts of the air-conditioning system in a Toyota performs an important function. The condenser is the final stop for the cooled air before it is pushed through the vents and onto the passengers within the vehicle. Composed of coils which are constructed of lightweight aluminium, the condenser of the air-conditioning system is where the refrigerant is cooled further. Once cooled, the condenser turns the refrigerant into "high pressure liquid." The refrigerant liquid is then pushed to the evaporator.
