Air Conditioners: Amazing Facts

Air conditioners are indeed amazing and, in this article, we’ll be sharing some facts about air conditioners; how they came to be, how they work, recommendations for maintenance and even some exciting trivia about air conditioners.

1.) How Air Conditioners came to be

The first modern air conditioner was invented by Willis Carrier in 1902 following the advent of electricity.

The invention was made for his company, where he published books, to maintain the humidity at a low temperature so that the paper would not contract or expand.

He never actually intended it for comfort at all.

2.) How Air Conditioners operate

The whole process involves a chemical known as a refrigerant which constantly absorbs heat and removes it from the home.

So what you think is just cool air being added to a room is actually hot air being removed as the air is taken away from the humidity by the refrigerant.

Mind blowing!

3.) What are the different parts that make up an Air Conditioner?

A typical Air Conditioning system is made up of four smaller constituents:

1.) The Evaporator – which holds the refrigerant

2.) The Condenser – which controls the transfer of heat

3.) The Compressor – which pumps or pressurizes the liquid refrigerant

4.) And The Expansion Valve

The air conditioning system also has other components like the fan, a motor, and filters for the blowers as well.

4.) How to optimize the life of your Air Conditioner

The primary way of extending the lifespan of an Air Conditioning system is by adhering to a monthly maintenance routine.

It is advised that the filters are checked and changed regularly. Always observe your air conditioner unit for any obstruction that might jeopardize the inner workings of your unit and ensure you get a professional to give your Air Conditioner a proper check up from time to time.

5.) Air Conditioners…the ultimate medicine?

Advances in medical science have been achieved through the aid of air conditioning systems.

These advances have been most notable in the fight against malaria and in the decrease of the mortality rate in infants.

Air Conditioners are literally lifesavers.

6.) Impact on Architecture

Homes, before the invention of the air conditioner, were built with breezeways, high ceilings, landscapes and sleeping porches to help their residents keep cool.

With the air conditioner, these types of homes became less popular but you’ll notice that old-style buildings still maintain a similar high ceiling, airy structure.
