Everyone knows in a general sense what an air conditioner does — it keeps your home cool during a hot Toms River summer season. But do you know how? Home comfort can really be boiled down to one task: moving heat energy. In the summer, heat energy is moved out of your home, and in the winter, it’s added back in. So how does an air conditioner move heat energy? Keep reading!
An air conditioner has one primary purpose, to cool the home. This is done by absorbing the latent heat trapped in the air. The unit comes on and compresses the refrigerant through the outside coil into a low temperature liquid. The outdoor unit is where the heat absorbed by the refrigerant is blown off in to the outside air. The cooled refrigerant is piped to the indoor coil where the warm indoor air is blown across allowing the refrigerant to absorb the heat. It is then transferred back to the outdoor system where the cycle starts again
The efficiency of an air conditioner is measured with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. An 18 SEER air conditioner is more efficient than a 16 SEER model. However, overall air conditioning efficiency is about much more than the SEER rating. A quality design and installation are paramount to achieving manufacturer specs.
