Air conditioning is a process that controls the filtration, air circulation, temperature and humidity of an environment. Air conditioning is associated with the cooling and the dehumidification process of air, and is therefore identified as refrigeration equipment. A central air conditioning system keeps your entire home or business cool in the warmer months, while lowering indoor humidity levels.
Some may think that air conditioners cool their homes by pumping cold air in. However, the air conditioning process removes warm air from your house and cycles it back in as cooler air. This process will continue until the air reaches the temperature set on your thermostat.
The parts within an air conditioning system consist of a compressor, a fan, condenser coil, evaporator coil, and a refrigerant. The air conditioner removes heat from indoor air and transfers it outside, leaving the cooled air to circulate. A central air conditioning system is comprised of three different parts an outdoor unit, an indoor unit, and ducting to move the air to specific locations throughout your home.
