In our experience, one of the most popular types of air conditioner is the split system model. Split system air conditioners are probably the variety you are most familiar with, but you may not know how they work. Below, we will provide a brief explanation of how split system air conditioners work, so you can decide if they are right for you.
Split system air conditioners get their name from the fact that they use two units, one indoors and one outdoors, to cool the buildings they are attached to. The outdoor unit contains the compressor coils, which in turn contain the refrigerant. This chemical is pressurized in the coils, then passes through the system’s expansion joint, where the pressure falls and allows the refrigerant to convert to a gas and release heat in the process. Once the refrigerant has become gaseous, its temperature drops considerably, and it flows inside to the evaporator coils of the indoor unit. The indoor unit then draws air over the evaporator coils, which cools down the air by sucking the heat out. From there, the refrigerant returns outdoors to the compressor to release the heat it has gathered and starts the cycle over again.
