How Does The Air Conditioning Function?

By Ian Wynn

Air conditioners utilise chemicals which effortlessly change over from a gas into a liquid and back again. This element is designed to move high temperature from the air inside a house towards the outer atmosphere.

This appliance has 3 (three) major parts. They are a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator. The compressor and condenser are normally found on the outside the house air portion of the air conditioner unit. The evaporator is found inside the property, sometimes as element of a heater. That is actually the part that warms the house.

The functional fluid comes at the pump as a cool, low-pressure gas. The compressor pushes the fluid. This packs the molecule of the fluid closer together. The nearer the elements are compacted, the bigger its strength and its temperature.

The functional liquid exits the pump as a warm, heightened pressure gas and flows directly into condenser. If you looked at the air con component outside your property, look for the component that has metal fins all over. The fins behave a lot like a radiator in a motor vehicle and help the warmth escape, or dissipate, quicker.

As soon as the working fluid exists the condenser, its temperature is way cooler and has modified from a gas to a liquid influenced by high pressure. The liquid flows to the evaporator via a very little, narrow hole. On the other side, the liquid's pressurisation declines. Once it does it begins to disperse into the gas.

Because the liquid alters to gas and evaporates, it extracts hot temperature from the air around it. Warmth in the air is essential to break the components of the liquid from a liquid to a gas. The evaporator also has metal fins to help in exchange the thermal energy with the surrounding air.

By the time the functional liquid exists the evaporator, it's a cool, low pressure gas. After that it returns to the pump motor to begin its voyage yet again.

Linked with the evaporator is a fan which circulates the air in your home to carry across the evaporator fins. Warm air is lighter than cool air, which means that warm air within the room goes up to the top of a area.

There exists a hole there at which air is taken straight into the air conditioner and goes down ducts. The hot air is applied to chill the gas in the evaporator. As the hot temperature is taken away from the air, the air is cooled. Its thereafter blown directly into the house via various other ducts quite often at the ground level.

This continues time and again until the room reaches the temperature you want the room cooled to. The thermostat senses that the temp has reached the perfect setting and turns off the air conditioner. As the room warms up, the thermostat switches the air con back on until such time as the area reaches the temperature.
