You rely on your air conditioning system all summer to keep your home cool and healthy—but do you know how your home air conditioner actually works?
Many people think that their air conditioner just supplies cool air into the home, but it actually does double duty. To keep your home comfortable, it also needs to pull the heat out of a home too.
This is made possible through physics of evaporation. Imagine how your skin feels after rubbing alcohol is applied. The cooling sensation you feel is caused by the alcohol drawing heat away from your skin as it turns from a liquid to a gas. Your air conditioner basically uses the same principle to cool your home.
Here is a tutorial on home A/C with five simple explanations.
Of course, these are just the basic principles. The process is a little more complicated than that – which is why you need a professional cooling technician to service your home A/C unit every year to make sure your equipment keeps working properly.
