Air conditioners are one part of a central heating and central cooling system that draws heat energy from outside of the home and transfers it.Air conditioners often use a fan to distribute the conditioned air to an enclosed space such as a building or a car to improve thermal comfort and indoor air quality.

Air conditioners give you the much needed thermal comfort during scorching summer. More specifically, air conditioners help to maintain the room temperature at optimum level. Watch the video from Learn Engineering for more info:
They also help in removing airborne particles and humidity from the room. Let’s find out how how these devices work. The cooling is typically achieved through a refrigeration cycle, but sometimes evaporation or free cooling is used.
Air conditioning systems can also be made based on desiccants (chemicals which remove moisture from the air). Some AC systems reject or store heat in subterranean pipes.
