In Colorado there are several ways to cool off your home during the summer months. There are evaporative coolers (swamp coolers), mini split ductless systems and central air conditioning.
A central air conditioning system is made up of three main pieces of equipment, which include:
- The outdoor condenser unit with a compressor, as the name implies, compresses & cools the refrigerant gas into a liquid.
- The indoor evaporative coil processes the refrigerant as it passes thru the series of aluminum coils and fins.
- The coil is connected to either the furnace or an air handler, with a blower, that drives the air over the evaporative coil and circulates this cooled air thru the interior of the home.
