Central Air Conditioning

Your central air conditioning system helps to cool, ventilate and reduce the humidity in your home so it’s comfortable inside, even when it's hot outside. An air conditioning system works by extracting hot and humid air from inside your house and distributing cool air through a duct system.

Most central air conditioning units in Maryland are a split system, which is made up of an outdoor air conditioning unit and an indoor furnace. The alternative is a packaged system, in which the heating and cooling functionalities are both housed in the outside unit.

How It Works: Central Air Conditioners

Most Maryland air conditioning units are part of a split system. The cooling mode of a split system uses an outdoor air conditioning compressor and an indoor evaporator coil to cool a home. When cooling, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system and to the evaporator coil. As the air duct system pulls warm air from inside the house, the refrigerant in the evaporator coil absorbs the heat and removes the moisture from the air. As the air continues to move across the coil, the air is cooled and is then redistributed through the air duct system. The heat that was transferred to the evaporator coil is moved outside to the compressor, where the heat can dissipate and cool down. The process of extracting heat from the air, moving the refrigerant outside to cool and returning the cool refrigerant inside to cool the air is continuous.

A packaged air conditioning system is an alternative to the typical split system approach. However, the cooling process is very similar, except that the system is self-contained and requires no indoor equipment.
