Overview

Air Conditioner

Air conditioners are a luxury in themselves, delivering refreshing chilled air to fend off overwhelming heat. Before you purchase an air conditioner, you should know what type of AC unit is right for you and your needs.

Always Measure Before Purchasing

Air Conditioner Measurements

Before purchasing any appliance, including an air conditioner, measure the space where you intend to install the unit. Even if retailers offer a return option because of improper fit, they may impose a restocking fee.

How Air Conditioners Work

How Air Conditioners Work

Air conditioners cool the air with a cold indoor coil called an evaporator. A hot outdoor coil called a condenser expels the heat outside. A refrigerant fluid moves between both, transferring outgoing heat and incoming cold between them.
