Everyone knows what air conditioners do – they keep you cool! But have you ever wandered outside your home and looked at your air conditioner up close? If you do, you’ll notice there is no ducting attached to it. So where does the cool air come from?
The primary job of an air conditioner is to compress refrigerant. Refrigerant is a gas, but when compressed it releases heat energy and condenses to a chilled liquid. This is why you’ll here us HVAC techs sometimes call it a ‘condenser’ or ‘compressor.’ The chilled refrigerant is then pumped inside to the indoor coil which is a series of metal tubing. Warm air from the home is forced through the chilled coil, and the refrigerant absorbs heat energy from the air and turns back into a gas. The gas is pumped back out to the air conditioner and the process repeats
