Perhaps you like to understand the mechanics behind the devices in your Tullahoma, Tennessee, home or business. When you find a new piece of technology, your first question might be, "How does that work?" By understanding how your cooling system works, you can make informed decisions so that you’ll choose the right unit based on your unique needs.
How Your Cooling System Works
Let’s start by looking at a conventional central cooling system. Your cooling unit pulls warm air from your home into the system and across the evaporator coil. The refrigerant running through the coil absorbs the heat as air passes over it. The process transfers the warm air outdoors to the compressor where the process begins anew. The system then returns cool air indoors.
Central cooling systems are only one option for beating the summer heat. A heat pump, for instance, works in much the same way. However, heat pumps feature a reversing valve that will change the direction of the refrigerant flow to also provide heat in winter. Ductless mini-split systems provide year-round comfort, but unlike heat pumps and central air conditioners, they don’t use a duct network to distribute air. Instead, ductless systems blow air directly into your living space from units installed in each room.
