How Does an Air Conditioning System Actually Work?
Air conditioning is a process used to establish and maintain optimum temperatures in indoor spaces such as homes, businesses, etc. Most people assume that air conditioning works by releasing cold air, which isn’t accurate. Instead, they extract cold air from indoor spaces and transfer it outside. Here is a detailed review of how an air conditioning system works.
According to the narrator, an air conditioning system has two main parts a condenser and an evaporator situated outdoors and indoors, respectively.
The condenser circulates refrigerant within the pipework, which flows through the entire system comprising other components such as the compressor and expansion valve.
Warm air from the indoor space is sucked into the system and flows over the cooled pipework, which cools the air.
A dehumidifier extracts the excess moisture; according to the narrator in the video, moisture can damage the compressor.
The warm air is pumped outside while refrigerant flows through the compressor and condenser, which helps turn it back into an extremely cold liquid.
Cooled air is then introduced into the indoor space and circulated, causing it to mix with the existing air, providing optimum temperature and humidity.
