Colorado Springs Air Conditioning Facts

A typical central air conditioning system is a split system. It has an outdoor air conditioning unit, or compressor bearing unit, as well as a indoor coil. The indoor air conditioning coil is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
Air conditioners use electricity as their power source. The compressor unit pumps refrigerant through the entire system to collect heat and moisture from inside the house and remove it.
Heat and moisture are taken from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby cooling the air.
When heat is transferred to the coil it is then pumped outside the home. At the same time, cooled air is pumped back inside. This cycle helps maintain a comfortable temperature inside the home.

Indoor comfort during warm weather – Central air conditioning helps keep a house cool and keeps humidity levels low.
Cleaner air – As your central air conditioning system draws air out of rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Some filters remove microscopic pollutants. The filtered air is then routed to air supply duct-work that carries it back to rooms.
Quieter operation – Because the compressor bearing unit is outside the home, the indoor noise level is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.
