A conventional central air-conditioning system consists of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, connected by pipes that carry a refrigerant compound.
For many homeowners, central air conditioning is the ideal solution to home comfort and efficiency issues. A central AC system is a great way to add value to your home while getting the best cooling system available.

A central air conditioning system relies on a refrigerant to "pump" heat from inside your house to outside. When the refrigerant compound is allowed to expand and change from a liquid into a vapor, it gives up a great deal of heat -- just like perspiration does when it evaporates from your skin. The evaporator coil in the HVAC system is cooled by this phase change. A blower in your central air conditioning system's air handler forces warm interior air through the evaporator, cooling it before it enters the ducts that distribute the air throughout the house.
Many homes with central air conditioning have a standard "split" system — an outdoor unit that rests on a concrete pad, and a separate indoor unit that's connected to the ductwork system. The interior part of a central air conditioning system will include a drain line for the moisture that condenses out of the interior air as it is cooled.
These days, air conditioning systems with a SEER of 16 or more are considered very good, with 21 or higher SEER systems considered to be at the top of the industry. An air conditioning unit that is 12 years old or more, may only be 10 SEER or less. This means upgrading systems can lead to a huge improvement in your home's energy efficiency.
If your central air conditioning unit is outdated, replacing it with an ENERGY STAR® qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30%. Our experts can help you understand what energy options are right for your home to provide the maximum value.
