Quality Services to Keep South Chicagoland Residents Cool
When summer arrives in Northwest Indiana, a central air conditioning system offers welcome relief from rising outdoor temperatures and humidity. A properly designed and installed HVAC system can provide many years of quiet, economical comfort and help improve indoor air quality. Homeowners with an air conditioner that is over eight years old may benefit from upgrading to a new energy-efficient model. In fact, replacing a 10-SEER air conditioner installed in the 1990s with a new 13-SEER system can save up to 30% on annual cooling costs.
Understanding Air Conditioners
All air conditioners use the same basic technology to cool the indoor air. The refrigeration cycle begins when low-pressure refrigerant enters the compressor and leaves as a high-pressure gas. The gas flows into the condensing coil where the action of the fan dissipates heat and transforms the refrigerant into a high-pressure liquid. The indoor blower pulls warmer indoor air across the evaporator coil, and the refrigerant absorbs the heat energy. The resulting cooler air is then pushed back into the living air through the supply duct.
Air conditioning equipment is available in three primary configurations including:
- Split Systems – A split system air conditioner has a separate outdoor condensing unit and an indoor furnace or air handler. Copper refrigerant lines connect the two parts of the system. Since the condensing fan and compressor motor are outside, split systems are very quiet. Locating the evaporator and air handler indoors provides greater overall efficiency.
- Packaged Units – Primarily installed on rooftops for light commercial and residential applications, packaged units combine the evaporator coil, blower, condensing coil, and the compressor in a single unit. Packaged units are ideal for installation sites with limited space.
- Heat Pumps – Available in both split system and packaged unit varieties, heat pumps provide both heating and cooling from a single unit. Heat pumps include a device called a reversing valve, which changes the direction of the refrigerant flow when the thermostat mode is reset.
