Get Schooled on How an Air Conditioner Works


The job of your home air conditioner is to move heat from inside your home
to outside, cooling you and your home in the process. While you surely
know what it feels like when your air conditioner is not functioning properly,
you may not understand just how your AC actually does its job.

A local HVAC leader, Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning, understands
that a working
air conditioner is a necessity for residents. As such, we do everything in our power to
keep your system functioning at top capacity throughout the year. Learn
more about how air conditioners work below and then contact our talented
techs to schedule an appointment if your unit needs servicing.

How Air Conditioners Work

Air conditioners work by pulling heat from the air and blowing cool
air in to replace it. When you turn on your AC system, a set of cold pipes
known as an evaporator coil cools the air in a way similar to how water
evaporates from the skin. The coil uses liquid refrigerant, which changes
into a gas as it absorbs heat. The gas-version of the refrigerant is then
pumped out of the house and into another coil called a condenser, wherein
it returns to a condensed liquid state. The pump that helps move the refrigerant
between the two coils is called a compressor.

Your home’s air conditioning system runs with the use of a motor,
however the system produces 3 times more cooling energy than the motor
provides. The increase in energy stems from the way in which the system
changes and recycles the refrigerant.
