Cool Comfort: Air Conditioning 101 with Admiral Plumbing

As the temperatures rise, the familiar hum of air conditioning becomes a welcome sound. In this blog, we're diving into the basics of air conditioning – the technology that keeps us cool during the warm months. Join us on a journey through Air Conditioning 101 and discover how Admiral Plumbing can ensure your home stays comfortably cool.

How Air Conditioning Works

Air conditioning is more than just a magical box that blows cool air. It operates on a straightforward principle:

Taking Heat Away: Air conditioners use a special fluid to remove heat from indoor air. This fluid quickly changes from a liquid to a gas and back again.

Cooling the Air: Once you remove the heat, the refrigerant carries it outside. The indoor air is left cooler and more comfortable.

Circulating Fresh Air: Air conditioners also help improve indoor air quality by circulating and filtering the air, removing dust, allergens, and humidity.

Components of an Air Conditioning System

Evaporator Coil: Located inside the home, this coil absorbs heat from indoor air.

Condenser Coil: Located outside the home, this coil releases the absorbed heat into the outdoor air.

Compressor: The heart of the system, the compressor circulates refrigerant between the indoor and outdoor coils.

Thermostat: The thermostat acts as the control center, allowing you to set and maintain your desired temperature.

Types of Air Conditioning Systems

Central Air Conditioning: The most common type, central air conditioning, uses a system of ducts to distribute cool air throughout the entire home.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems: Ideal for homes without ductwork, mini-split systems allow for targeted cooling in specific areas.

Window Units: These standalone units are designed for cooling individual rooms and are easy to install in windows.
