The best air conditioner is the one you don’t have to think about. It comes on the moment the indoor temperature set on the thermostat requires cooling performance, and then runs quietly and efficiently when needed. But when it’s time to perform routine maintenance, make repairs or replace your system, it’s helpful to understand how an air conditioning system works.

The Refrigeration Cycle

Using electricity as its power source, the refrigerant flows through a closed system of refrigeration lines between the indoor unit and the outside unit.
Warm air from the inside of your house is pulled into ductwork by a motorized fan.
The refrigerant is pumped from the exterior compressor coil to the interior evaporator coil, where it absorbs the heat from the air.
This cooled air is then pushed through connecting ducts to vents throughout the home, lowering the interior temperature.
The refrigeration cycle continues again, providing a consistent method to keep you cool. These are the basics of how an air conditioning system works.

Parts of a Central AC System

To get a better sense of how your air is cooled, it helps to know a little bit about the parts that make up the air conditioning system. A typical central air conditioning system is a two-part or split system that includes:

The outdoor unit contains the condenser coil, compressor, electrical components and a fan.
The evaporator coil, which is usually installed on top of the gas furnace inside the home.
A series of pipes, or refrigeration lines, connecting the inside and outside equipment.
Refrigerant, the substance in the refrigeration lines that circulates through the indoor and outdoor unit.
Ducts that serve as air tunnels to the various spaces inside your home.
A thermostat or control system to set your desired temperature.
