How does air conditioning refrigerant work


Without refrigerant, there would be no air conditioning […]

Without refrigerant, there would be no air conditioning, refrigeration or freezing technology. The air conditioner contains the refrigerant in the copper coil. When the refrigerant absorbs heat from the indoor air, it changes from a low-pressure gas to a high-pressure liquid. The air conditioning component sends the refrigerant outside, and the fan blows hot air through the coil and discharges it to the outside. The refrigerant then cools down and changes back to a low-pressure gas. Another fan located in the home blows air through the cooling coils to distribute the generated cold air throughout the building. Then the cycle repeats.

Type of refrigerant

The most common refrigerants used in air conditioning over the years include:

1. Chlorofluorocarbons. This is known to contribute to the greenhouse gas effect. The production of new shares ceased in 1994.

2. Chlorofluorocarbons. The damage to ozone is slightly smaller, but it is required to be phased out in accordance with the 2010 Clean Air Act and will be completely phased out in 2020.

3. Hydrofluorocarbons. The mixture does not contain chlorine, which is safer for the environment. It is now used to replace other refrigerants. The air conditioners that operate are more efficient, better air quality, more comfortable, and more reliable.
