When we hear the words “air conditioning”, we immediately think cool, amazing air that just makes everyone groan and say a long “ahhhh…” Air conditioning is a process that uses air conditioners to alter properties in the air. The aim is usually to distribute the already conditioned air in buildings, cars and other occupied spaces. By definition, air conditioning is a system that uses an apparatus or a group of devices for making the air clean and control it’s qualities to make it even better. An air conditioner, therefore,is tasked with removing hot air and replacing it with humid and cooler air that can be controlled by the user. However, there are different types of air conditioners that serve this purpose. Here are some of them.
Mini-split conditioners are the ductless systems that have two main components; indoor air handler unit and an outdoor compressor/condenser. These two main components are linked by a conduit which is the resident of the power cable, the suction tubing, the refrigerant tubing and a condensate drain. They are ideal for rooms that can’t have ducts extended. Mini-split air conditioners are the most recommended air conditioners due to a plethora of advantages.
Windows air conditioners are designed to offer cooling to multiple rooms by installation on a standard double-hung window, casement windows or fit in walls. When shopping for a window air conditioner it is important to consider the installation, the cooling capacity, the energy efficiency, the maintenance and the electric requirements.
A central air conditioning will use a system of supply and return ducts to circulate cool air to its zone. The supply ducts and registers are usually openings that are made on the walls, the floor or the zones ceiling. These are the agents that carry the warmer air to the conditioner and the cooled air to the zone.
Portable air conditioners are mobile cooling systems that are practical for single rooms. The self-contained system comes with an easy to install kit, sits on the floor and can be moved from room to room especially if the unit has a set of wheels.
