There are many parts required to build a modern HVAC system. The thermostatic expansion valve is just one of the components that keeps your system operating safely.
Definition of a Thermostatic Expansion Valve
The thermostatic, or thermal, expansion valve is designed to control the amount of refrigerant sent into the evaporator. It regulates the refrigerant so that it flows at a steady rate. When operating correctly, the valve helps the system cool the air. The expansion valve is one of several metering devices incorporated into the cooling equipment.
