What is Air Conditioning?
Technically the term air conditioning refers to a wide range of processes to heat, cool, ventilate and de-humidify air. All these process alter the “condition” of the air. But in practical terms an air conditioner, or A/C, has come to refer mainly to cooling warm air.
An air conditioner uses a process of heat transfer, similar to a refrigerator, to pull heat energy away from the air replacing it with cool air. The process also removes moisture from the air.
The drier air that AC produces also helps to keep us cool. We sweat so the moisture can evaporate from our skin as part of our bodies own heat transfer process. Drier air makes the evaporation process more efficient. The relatively high humidity that occurs with the hot weather here in Houston region makes the dryer air produced by AC an added bonus.
Today’s central air conditioning units are part of the entire heating, cooling and ventilation systems for your home or commercial building. Air is ventilated and filtered through the buildings duct work and the temperature control unit automatically decides when the A/C should turn on to cool the air down or the furnace to turn on to warm it up.

In the past, homeowners in the market for new air conditioning equipment were primarily concerned with selecting the best brand and efficiency rating to meet their needs. Now they must make an even more crucial decision: whether to replace their existing system with equipment which uses R22 refrigerant or whether to upgrade to R410A.
Air conditioning is the conditioning of air within a defined space. Conditioning usually involves heating or cooling, humidifying or dehumidifying, and filtering air. Central air conditioners cool and dehumidify a defined space. Heating is accomplished by an add-on to the system (such as an electric heat strip) or by a seperate unit (such as a furnace).
When your cooling system breaks down, you may be faced with the choice of repairing your existing unit or purchasing a new air conditioner.
