WHAT IS CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING?

Central air conditioning, also referred to as central A/C, is a method of cooling your home that relies on ductwork to distribute cooled air from a central location to all areas of a home.

HOW DOES CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING WORK?
Central air conditioners don’t actually create cool air. What they do is remove warm air from inside your home, cool it down by passing it through several components, and then recirculate it back throughout your home. This air conditioning cycle repeats over and over and ultimately lowers the temperature of your home.
COMPONENTS OF A CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONER
A split air conditioning system, which is the most common central A/C setup, normally includes these components:
  • An outdoor AC unit that includes a compressor, condenser coil and fan.
  • An indoor unit (usually a furnace) that includes an evaporator coil and blower.
  • Ductwork that circulates and distributes cool air throughout the home.
