Air Conditioners Have Become An Important Part of Many Homes

When the temperature outside starts to rise, lots of people seek the cool comfort of indoor air conditioning. One type that we see all the time is the window air conditioner. Window air conditioners are an easy and affordable means to cool a small area. Air conditioning units come in various sizes, cooling capacities and costs. The majority of businesses and office buildings have condensing units on their roofs.

Air conditioners are one of those things that we see every day but hardly ever pay much attention to. An air conditioner is essentially a refrigerator without the insulated box. It makes use of the evaporation of a refrigerant, like Freon, to offer cooling.

Air conditioning units eliminate both heat and humidity from the air. If the system is too large, it will cool the room quickly, but only eliminate some of the humidity. This leaves the room with a moist, clammy feeling. A properly sized unit will eliminate humidity properly as it cools.

Room air conditioners are ranked by their energy efficiency ratio (EER), which is the cooling output divided by the power consumption. The higher the EER, the more effective the air conditioner.

Portable air conditioners are not as effective as window air conditioning units yet, and are only recommended when a window unit does not fit into a window such as casement or slide-out designs. Lots of people purchase an air conditioner that is too large, thinking it will provide better cooling. However, an oversized air conditioner is actually less effective, and wastes energy at the same time.Tucson AZ AC Services\nTucson AZ A/C Services
