Definition of Air Conditioning

We understand by air conditioning to the air cooling system that is used in a domestic way to cool the environments when the ambient temperatures are very high and hot. Air conditioning, although it refers to the air itself, is a device that is installed in houses, premises and other closed spaces with the aim of providing fresh air that is permanently renewed. Despite being a very useful device for daily comfort, its effects can sometimes be adverse not only on the health of individuals but also on the environment in general due to its constant expulsion of hot air to the outside.

Air conditioning works by circulating air from a closed space. This circulation adds, in addition, the variation that is generated in temperature and humidity from the entry of cold air and the exit of warmer or warmer air. There are two main types of air conditioning systems: centralized and autonomous. While the latter are the most common, those found in private homes, premises, etc., the centralized ones are those that depend on a central system, such as a boiler that receives and supplies the specific type of air.

It is important to know that air conditioners as air exchange devices can perform both cooling and heating environments. Here it is of great relevance to point out that while refrigeration must add dehumidification of the environment (since high humidity raises the temperature), heating must humidify the environment to prevent it from becoming very dry and dangerous for health.

Air conditioners are made up of several parts that can be carried out on the same equipment or outside of it. As most of these devices require an external fan, it is considered that the damage that air conditioners generate to the environment is high due to altering humidity and temperature. In other words, in a certain sense, air conditioners seek to neutralize a phenomenon with which they directly collaborate.
