How does an Air Conditioner Work?

Most cooling appliances operate in a similar fashion; they use chemicals that convert gas to liquid. The ability for an air conditioner to reduce ambient air temperature in a room is structured around a simple scientific principle and the application of a couple mechanical techniques.

Air conditioners use refrigeration to cool indoor air and use the physical law of phase conversion.  As a liquid turns into a gas, it absorbs heat. Air conditioners encourage phase conversion by introducing special chemical compounds that evaporate and condense over and over again within a system of coils.

These compounds are called refrigerants and contain properties that enable them to change from liquid to gas at a low temperature.  As the air becomes cold, it is blown out of the unit and into the room. The fan that is contained inside of the AC can be adjusted to blow out air at different speeds. This helps to cool the room on very warm days.  If you need to have your air conditioner repaired or need a new one installed, contact a local air condition repair or air conditioner installation specialist to assist you. Staying cool this summer should not be an issue.
