    Know Your Whole Comfort System
    For many people having a warm home in the winter or a cool home in the summer are taken for granted. It’s something that everyone grows accustomed to. It allows us to do everything in our lives more efficiently and comfortably. The more you come to understand how your heating and cooling system works, the more you may appreciate how complicated of a system it is.

    • How Does Your Air Conditioner Work?
      A central air conditioner isn’t one simple unit located inside or outside your home. In fact, it’s a split system. Outside the condensing unit it located, and inside the air handler can be found. The basic function of your air conditioner is to move heat from one unit to the next. And Freon is the refrigerant your air conditioner uses to carry this heat.

    • The compressor in your condensing unit changes the Freon into a gas; that gas goes through the outdoor coil, loses heat, and changes into a liquid. The liquid refrigerant travels through copper tubing into the evaporator coil where the refrigerant expands. This expansion turns the refrigerant into a gas. The gas then absorbs heat from the air circulating in the ductwork. The cooled air is then distributed back through your house. At the same time, the heat absorbed by the refrigerant is carried back outside through copper tubing and released into the outside air.

    • How Does Your Furnace Work?
      Gas, oil, or propane is burned by your furnace to generate the heat in your home. When this fuel burns, it creates hot gasses that travel through tubing that’s referred to as your heat exchanger. Air passes over your heat exchanger and absorbs the heat it puts off. The air then circulates through your ductwork to warm your home, and the gasses created by the burned fuel are released outside through a vent.
