How do Air Conditioners Work?

Quite simply, air conditioning takes the hot air in a room and pump it outside, while exchanging that heated air for cool air.

With the help of the liquid coolant, the air conditioner uses three main components to keep the air cool, being the evaporator, the compressor, and the condenser.

The heated air is first drawn into the air conditioning system through return ducts where it then passes through a filter, used to remove dust and other particles from the air. The heated air then flows over the evaporator coils where it is cooled by the coolant, absorbing the heat from the air. The coolant then changes into a warm gas from a liquid as a result of the heat. The cool air is then blown back into the room.

From here the coolant flows to the compressor, which controls the volume of the gas, and causes an increase in pressure and temperature, so that condensation can take place. The coolant then travels back to the evaporator to begin the process again.

The Benefits of Using an Air Conditioner

There are several health benefits to using an air conditioning system. An important benefit is that the air is cleaner. The air conditioner allows the air to move through a filter that removes all dust and other particles from the air. This also helps reduce the risk of allergies from particles in the air and reduces the risk of a person having an asthma attack.

Having an air conditioner also reduces the risk of illness due to heat, such as heatstroke, thereby keeping us healthy.

It also reduces the risk of dehydration as less liquid is lost due to sweating and evaporation.

With regulated temperatures, it is also possible to have a better night’s sleep with an air conditioner.

It is also arguable that your house is more secure as windows need not be opened while the air conditioner is in use. And with fewer windows open, there are fewer insects in the room, and any insects that do enter, are filtered out by the air conditioner itself.

The mechanism for an air conditioning system is complex but also simplistic, and with all these added benefits, it could add great value to your life. Maintaining your air conditioner is just as important. Centromac can help you! Contact our offices today to find out more about our air conditioning services offered.
