It’s hard to imagine Crystal Lake summers without an air conditioner.
Have you ever taken time to consider how that noisy appliance on the side
of your house keeps you cool?
The basic principle behind air conditioners is evaporation. Liquids cool
down when they evaporate. So does the liquid inside your air conditioner
(known as refrigerant). Your home cools down as air is blown over the
coils because the evaporating refrigerant makes the coils extremely cold.
The evaporated refrigerant is pumped through a compressor where it is
turned into a liquid again. This cycle repeats over and over as long as
your air conditioner is running.
Watch this video clip for a further explanation of how air conditioners
work. Even if you don’t understand how air conditioners work at
all, you can bet that your
