Just because your San Marcos air conditioning system is working
Air conditioning is an important part of controlling humidity as well as cooling. The refrigeration process originally developed by Willis Carrier was almost used solely for dehumidification in the early 1900’s . Residential central San Marco air conditioning systems keep homes cool in the warmer months, and helps control indoor humidity levels. Residential air conditioners today come as mini-splits that cool specific areas, and as central San Marcos air conditioning systems with ductwork that distributes cooled air to various rooms throughout the home.
How does your San Marcos air conditioning work?
Air Conditioning systems uses a pressurized “refrigerant” to remove the heat from the air in your home as the air is moved past an indoor refrigerant coil. The heat in the refrigerant is then released into the air outside your home. This refrigerant cycle continues until the thermostat reaches its set-point temperature and your San Marcos air conditioning system turns off.
San Marcos air conditioning systems are made up of many component parts such as a compressor, a fan, condenser coil, evaporator coil, and the refrigerant. These individual components must work in together properly in order to properly and efficiently cool your home.
The three main sections that make up most split central San Marcos air conditioning systems are:
- The outdoor condensing unit (with a compressor, fan, condenser coil and electrical controls)
- A matching indoor air handler (with a blower fan and evaporator coil)
- Ductwork (designed and constructed to deliver the correct amount of air to each room)
