How does an air conditioner work

An air conditioner works by extracting heat from the indoors and releasing it outside. This is done via a refrigerant inside the air conditioning system and works in 3 steps:

Step 1: the refrigerant inside the system evaporates (turns to gas) and in doing so absorbs heat from the inside air.

Step 2: via a compressor the evaporated refrigerant is pushed through the air conditioning system to again become a liquid. Whilst the refrigerant turns back into a liquid, warm air is expelled via the outdoor unit

Step 3: whilst the evaporated refrigerant is flowing through the air conditioning system, cooled air is circulated back into the room, providing a cooling effect to create a comfortable temperature indoors.

Types of air conditioner

Any air conditioning system needs both an indoor and an outdoor unit. Depending on the system you choose, multiple indoor units can be connected to the same outdoor units. The system which is right for you, depends on your needs, your home and the way your home is built.

Single split

Single split air conditioning systems connect one outdoor unit to one indoor unit. This systems are perfect for controlling the climate of one room in your home, such as a bedroom or living room.

Multi split

Multi split air conditioning systems connect one outdoor unit to multiple indoor units (up to five), allowing you to control the climates of various rooms independently from each other. These systems are ideal for multi-story residences where outdoor space might be limited. They're a good choice if you want to control the temperature of multiple rooms or areas of your home.
