The best air conditioner is a system that you don’t have to worry about. It turns on when it needs to and it will run quietly and efficiently when it drops below your desired indoor temperature. When it is time to perform routine maintenance, make repairs, or replace your system. It is very helpful for you to know just how an air conditioning system actually works.
How the Refrigeration Cycle Works
So, let us start with the refrigeration cycle, shall we?
The HVAC system uses electricity as its power source, the refrigerant travels through a closed system of lines that connect the indoor unit to the outdoor unit.
All of the warm air in your home gets pulled through your ductwork by a large fan.
The liquid refrigerant travels from the exterior compressor coil all the way to the interior evaporator coil, where it will then absorb all of the hot air resulting in an overall cooler space.
This now cold air is pushed through all the connected ductwork throughout your house, helping to keep the temperature of every room the same.
This is a perpetual cycle which is why it is called the refrigeration cycle so it a functioning ac unit will perform this process continuously in order to keep you and your house cool.
Components of a Central Air Conditioning System
Now let’s talk about the different parts of your central ac system.
This should help you get a better sense of how the air is actually cooled, relying on air conditioning it always helps to know a bit about all the components that make up the air conditioning system as a whole. The traditional central air conditioning system is a two-part system or sometimes referred to as a split system. Now, a split system typically is composed of the following.
The outdoor unit which contains your condenser coil, compressor, electrical systems, and your big input fan.
Then the evaporator coil, which is usually installed at the top of the furnace inside of your home.
You will then have the refrigeration system which we talked about before which is a series of tubes and pipes which will commonly be referred to as refrigeration lines, which connect the inside and outside parts of your split system.
Now, a necessary part of the refrigeration system is the refrigerant itself. This is the substance that gets pumped through the refrigeration lines that circulate through your indoor and outdoor units.
Then you have your ducts which you need to always keep clean because these are the pathways for the air that you breathe to be circulated throughout your home.
Then, of course, the one part that everyone is pretty familiar with. Your thermostat or sometimes referred to as your control system which is used to set your desired temperature. Some thermostats now such as the nest can be programmed to even further optimize your comfort.
The Benefits of your Central Air Conditioning System.
Improved indoor comfort in hot or warm climates – your split system helps keep you and your home cool as well as helping to reduce humidity levels.
The air that you breathe is probably one of the most important parts of your life. You will have cleaner air as your central air conditioning system sucks out all of the air from the different rooms of your home through your installed air cuts, this is air is pulled through your air filter, which helps to remove any airborne particles such as lint, dust, and dander. Some more advanced also help to remove microscopic pollutants from your air as well such as bacteria and some viruses. This now clean air is then circulated back through your air supply ductwork which provides cool clean air to all of the rooms in your home.
One major advantage of a central air conditioning system that many people may overlook. Having a split system results in quieter operation because the compressor-bearing unit is positioned outside of your home. This allows for the indoor noise level from the remaining components to be much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning.
