Florida is a beautiful place to live, with bright summers and mild winters, but if you can’t keep your home or business cool enough, that beauty can turn sour pretty quickly. Choosing the right kind of AC system is a crucial step in the right direction. So how do you pick the right AC system for your needs? Knowing how AC systems work is an important factor.
A central AC system uses a refrigeration cycle, where refrigerant flows through lines both inside and outside the home. Hot air from inside the home is pulled through a fan into your ducts and then cooled by the refrigerant through the exterior compressor coil and the interior evaporator coil. The cooled down air is then pushed through the ducts and vents to cool your home. The whole process is then restarted, so there is a continuous cooling effect in your home. The main parts of a central AC System are:
- The outdoor unit, which consists of a fan, the condenser coil, compressor and electrical components
- The evaporator coil, which is installed inside
- Refrigeration lines, which connect the outside and inside parts
- Refrigerant inside the refrigeration lines
- Ducts throughout the home or business
It is important to know these different parts of AC systems and how they work in order to make an educated decision on which AC system to install in your home or business. You don’t want too small of a system, which will not cool down your home properly, or too big of a system, which will use too much power in cooling your home and cost you a lot more in energy bills.
