How Do Air Conditioners Work

Are you a curious mind who likes to break down stuff, pull things apart and figure it out yourself for no particular reason except that it is fun? Well then, you have come to the right place. Like all big appliances, air conditioners too have a world of their own. However, it might be an expensive effort for you to pull its mechanics apart to figure out what really goes on inside. Let us save you the trouble!

First things first, visualize your residential air conditioning systems like refrigerators, except, instead of a steel box, the walls of your home are its cooling limits. Now, every air conditioner consists of two parts an indoor unit and an outdoor unit, also known as a compressor unit.

The compressor is one of the key parts that run your residential air conditioning systems. It is that part that expels the refrigerant's cool air onto the evaporator coils and the warm air onto the condenser to push outside. Sounds confusing? Let us simplify it. Simply put, the compressor is a unit that expels cool air produced by the refrigerant. What is a refrigerant you ask?

A refrigerant is another important part of your AC without which you would not have cool air! It is a cooling gas that converts the hot air into cold air along with the evaporator coils. The best energy efficient air conditioner, like Daikin's, uses the R32 environmentally friendly refrigerant to save power.

Speaking of power, another important addition to your air conditioner is inverter technology. This comes in the form of an inverter compressor that fluctuates the demand of cool air without having to shut down. Thus, consuming a whole lot less power.

Apart from these key parts, let us not forget the other smaller units like the condenser and evaporator coils, fans and blower that keep your AC running! Our smart technicians and service can help you decode those if there ever is a problem with your AC.
