How Does An Air Conditioner Cool Indoor Air?
A fan circulates warm indoor air over the AC evaporator coils. Compounds in the refrigerant turn into a gas and absorb heat. That causes the temperature in the room to drop. After the refrigerant turns into a gas, it cannot absorb any additional heat. Instead, it must travel to the outdoor unit condenser coil where it expels heat and is returned to its liquid form.
The outdoor unit of your air conditioner houses a condenser coil and a compressor. Compressors are basically electric pumps that pressurize the gas that’s inside the condenser coils. Heat from your home in the form of gas is transported to the outdoor unit and pushed through the compressor. subjected to high pressure, the gas from the refrigerant condenses into a liquid and releases heat. The liquid drains out of the system via the condensate drain pan and the condensate drain pipe. Meanwhile, a blower fan moves heat away from the condenser coils.
Air conditioners work like refrigerators. They create coolness in one place and will move it to another place. A blower fan forces cooled air into your ductwork and through the vents to cool off individual rooms, A thermostat controls how much cool air is produced and distributed throughout your home. Thermostats monitor indoor temperatures and by turning off and on, they maintain a consistent indoor temperature throughout your home that matches the thermostat setting.
The most popular AC choices include central air conditioning and ductless mini-split air conditioners. Central systems cool your entire home via a system of duct work. If you want central air conditioning and your home lacks duct work, you will have to install it. Mini-split systems cool individual rooms or zones. Ductless air conditioners are highly efficient and do not rely on ducts.
When it comes to a new AC installation, accurate sizing and proper installation are key. Ask your HVAC contractor to perform a Manual J load calculation to ensure that the system will be correctly sized. Also, ensure that your contractor is licensed to perform air conditioner installation in your state.
