Everyone in Phoenix knows that the best place to be in the summer is in an air conditioned location. But, how many of these people have ever thought, “How does an air conditioner work”?
Most people think that an air conditioning unit cools a location by pumping in cool air, however, this isn’t everything that is involved in the air conditioning process. The air conditioning unit is extracting warm air from the house, cooling it, and cycling it back in to the house. Air conditioners work in much the same way a refrigerator does, they use the evaporation of refrigerants, life Freon, to cool the warm air that is being extracted from the house.
Air conditioners also assist in keeping the air in your home clean. Every home has at least one air conditioning filter that needs to be changed regularly. These filters help catch dust, mold spores, allergens, smoke, pollen, dirt, and other every day items that are found in the air.
