Air Conditioning West Palm Beach | How Does A/C Work?
Air Conditioning might seem like a simple concept, but have you ever
wondered how it works exactly?
Here we can try to dispel some myths about air conditioning.
How it Works
While most people associate air conditioning with cold, the science
behind making your home cooler actually deals with the transfer of heat.
When that heat is lost or removed, the remaining cold air cools your home.
The outdoor unit is usually located in the rear or side of your house and
it is where the heat from inside your home is dispersed. It contains the
compressor, condenser coil, and a fan. The heat absorbed from your home’s
air is transferred to the refrigerant and then pumped to the outdoor unit.
As this heat is absorbed and moved by the refrigerant to the outdoor coil,
it passes through the compressor.
