How Does An HVAC System Work?
During the hottest portions of the summer it is always nice to know that an air-conditioning system is working at full capacity. However, many times the question arises as to how does an HVAC system actually work. In the simplest of terms, an air conditioner uses something known as refrigeration principles to effectively lower the temperature of air. This is done through the use of a condenser, a compressor and something called an evaporator. All these components work together to produce reliable conditioned air for homeowners.
One Simple Outdoor Unit Combination
In most cases a system will have a compressor and a condenser that is typically situated outdoors and an evaporator that is usually mounted on the air handler. Conversely, there are certain types of units that combine all components into one simple outdoor unit assembly. The operation of an HVAC system is rather simple in that a central air unit works to draw ambient room air through ductwork to effectively cool and dehumidifier as well as filter that air. It is then sent back into various rooms throughout a home via the air supply ductwork system.
Comfortable Air In Homes Year-Round
Finally, all changes to temperature and fan operation are performed through the central thermostat unit that is usually installed somewhere in a central part of the home such as a hallway. The thermostat can be manual or as is usually the case these days automatic. An automatic thermostat will sense temperature and turn the unit on and off as needed to control the temperature of air in a typical residential home. When all components of the central AC system are working in unison homeowners can enjoy comfortable air in their home year-round.
