Rely on Cousins Air Conditioning for Comfortable Temperatures

Posted on AC Info October 29, 2010 by John Brescia

Most people believe that their air conditioners are pumping cool air into their Broward homes, thus lowering the temperature. The warm air from your house is really being removed and cycled back in as cooler air. This cycle continues until your thermostat reaches the most comfortable, energy-saving temperature.

An air conditioner is basically a refrigerator without the insulated box. It uses the evaporation of a refrigerant, like Freon, to provide cooling. Freon is a nonflammable fluorocarbon used as a refrigerant and as a propellant for aerosols.

This is how the evaporation cycle works in your FL air conditioning system:

  • The compressor compresses cool Freon gas, causing it to become hot, high-pressure Freon gas.
  • This hot gas runs through a set of coils so it can dissipate its heat, and it condenses into a liquid.
  • The Freon liquid runs through an expansion valve, and in the process it evaporates to become cold, low-pressure Freon gas.
  • This cold gas runs through a set of coils that allow the gas to absorb heat and cool down the air inside.
  • Mixed in with the Freon is a small amount of lightweight oil. This oil lubricates the compressor.

South Florida air conditioning helps clean your home’s air as well with filters that catch dust, pollen, mold spores and other allergens as well as smoke and everyday dirt found in the air. Most air conditioners also function as dehumidifiers. They take excess water from the air and use it to help cool the unit before getting rid of the water through a hose to the outside.
