The Process of Air Cooling

Air conditioning, or cooling, can be a complicated process. Heaters use energy to create heat, whereas air conditioners do the opposite. They use energy to remove it. Much like a refrigerator compressor, air conditioners will transfer the heat from within your house to the outdoors. A fluid called ‘refrigerant’ absorbs or releases heat as it changes from a liquid to a gas. As it does this it takes heat from a warmer place (the inside of your house) and dumps it into a cooler place (outdoors).

There are 3 key parts to an AC unit. The compressor, the condenser, and the evaporator. The compressor and condenser are generally located in the outside part of the system. The evaporator is found inside the house. The compressor squeezes the cooling fluid and the molecules in the liquid are packed closer together. The more this happens, the more the temperature and energy rise.  

Fortunately, you don’t need to know how an air conditioning system works in order to receive the benefits of it. That’s where we come in. We can help you if you are having issues with your system, you are looking to upgrade to a better one or if you have any questions or concerns.
