In most cases air conditioning refers to cooling. In fact, cooling is more complicated than heating. For heating you could have a fireplace, a heater, a heat pump or even some form of central heating. Heating uses energy to create heat. In the case of cooling, air conditioners use energy to remove heat. Most cooling systems use a compressor cycle to transfer warm air from inside to outside.
A compressor uses a special fluid known as the refrigerant. This refrigerant can absorb and release heat and acts as the agent that transfers warm air from indoors to outdoors. That is the simple version. It’s actually a bit more complicated, but we leave that to the engineers and technicians.
What is important to know though is that even as simple and as remarkable the process sounds, it requires energy. This energy is provided in the form of electricity, and if you still have an old HVAC, it will require quite a lot of it. You will find that new energy-efficient cooling systems use less energy, i.e. less electricity to do the same thing, transfer warm air from indoors to outdoors.
The most common types of air conditioners or cooling systems are central air conditioners and heat pumps. You also get portable air conditioners, window mounted units and so on. The experts at air current will be able to advise you regarding the best cooling system for your home, office or building.
