Air conditioners use chemicals that easily convert from a gas to a liquid and back again. This chemical is used to transfer heat from the air inside of a home to the outside air. The machine has three main parts. They are a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator……ok, do you really want the whole scientific explanation? Wikipedia
can give you a better version. We are here to give you the laymen’s phrasing so you won’t be completely wide-eyed.
So what you are probably concerned about is when the A/C kicks on….then what happens?
There is a vent there where air is sucked into the air conditioner and goes down ducts. The hot air is used to cool the gas in the evaporator. As the heat is removed from the air, the air is cooled. It is then blown into the house through other ducts usually at the floor level.
This continues over and over and over until the room reaches the temperature you want the room cooled to. The thermostat senses that the temperature has reached the right setting and turns off the air conditioner. As the room warms up, the thermostat turns the air conditioner back on until the room reaches the temperature.
What we want you to know is that we want you and your family or employees comfortable while being in your air conditioned rooms. It all comes down to your comfort and keep your system maintained so it does not break or put harmful bacteria into the air.
