How Does Central AC Work?
Central air conditioners differ from ductless systems and window units. These HVAC systems are more intricate, but can also garner more effective results. Central air conditioners are typically split systems with components both inside and outside of the home. The systems work by transferring heat energy to the refrigerant inside the evaporator coil. During this process, the refrigerant is pumped back towards the compressor and the cycle begins again. The refrigerant works to absorb any heat and moves it outside while cool air is circulated inside. The result? A cool and comfortable home.
What are the Benefits of Central Air Conditioning?
Installing a central air conditioning system offers a myriad of benefits for your home, but here are some of the best perks:
- Increased Comfort. This is one of the biggest benefits of central air conditioning. Window units usually have limited cooling capabilities and can only cool the immediate area where they are located—meaning you may need to purchase multiple window units (and spend more money). While window units only cool one area of the home, central air conditioning systems simultaneously cool the entire house.
- Better Air Quality. Ahh… breathe deeply! Central air conditioning systems use filters which work to take pollutants, allergens, and the like out of the air, meaning fresher, cleaner air for you and your loved ones.
- Low noise levels. One of the biggest pitfalls of traditional air conditioning systems is the noise level. Window units are located inside the house so they’re going to make noise—and depending on the system, this noise can be loud and potentially become a big annoyance. Central air conditioning systems, however, keep the condenser (and the noise!) outside of the house.
