The question of how an air-conditioner works is  on one that we get a lot and knowing how your AC
works allows you to make the right call when  considering a new unit or deciding whether
or not you need to repair. The thermostat in  your home which controls the temperature for
both heating and cooling has a gauge that tells  your air conditioner to turn on or off. Now the
cooling process itself goes through three  main parts and relies on both your furnace
and AC to work together. First, there’s the  blower motor, the part of your furnace that
circulates air throughout the home. Second,  is the evaporator coil which is located above
the furnace and the third component is the  condenser which sits outside of your home
and connects to the evaporator by two pipes which  hold the refrigerant. When your AC is turned on,
the blower motor draws warm air into the system,  sends that air through the evaporator coil to
cool it down and then pushes cold air back out  throughout the home. But you might be asking, how
does the cooling happen? Well, the evaporator uses  cold refrigerant to absorb heat, remove humidity
from that warm air. That refrigerant is then sent  back out to the condenser to be cooled once again.
This constant loop of removing warm air from the  home is how an AC works. Knowing this, it’s also
important to point out that a properly sized  unit that is regularly maintained is needed for
your AC to be as efficient as possible. Having  an AC that is the right size for your home can
also help keep the humidity levels optimal.  Remember if you need a new air conditioner,
