Types of air conditioning systems
There are many types of air conditioning systems, and the choice of the air conditioner system to be used depends on a number of factors, including the size of the area to be cooled, and the total temperature inside the closed area. Understanding the different types of air conditioning systems available will help you in making an informed purchase of air conditioners and helps to understand how Doing each of them so that it is possible to increase the efficiency of the approved air conditioning system.
Window air conditioner:
Window air conditioner is the most used air conditioner in single rooms. In this air conditioner, all components, i.e. compressor, condenser, extension valve or coil, evaporator and cooling coil are put in one box. This unit is installed in a hole made in the wall of the room, this conditioner will not be ideal for a larger house or more room than a room, as it does not effectively cool in wide or open places.
There is a type as a support for window air conditioners and it is called portable air conditioners. Portable air conditioners are the next generator for window units. This type receives the air from the room, cools it, and then directs it back into the room. The unit then ventilates any warm air outside the exhaust hose installed in a window.
Portable air conditioners are designed to cool only one room. It is easy to install, versatile and affordable. You’ll find it has the ability to easily adapt air conditioning and make it cold on a hot summer day.
Split or split air conditioner:
The separate air conditioner consists of two parts: the outdoor unit and the indoor unit. The out-of-room outdoor unit includes components such as compressor, capacitor, and expansion valve. The indoor unit includes the evaporator or cooling coil and the cooling fan. For this unit, you don’t have to create any holes in the wall of the room. Moreover, the separate units currently have aesthetic shapes and do not occupy as much space as the window unit. The separate air conditioner can be used to cool one or two rooms.
Packed air conditioner
The AC designer will suggest this type of air conditioner if you want to cool more than two rooms or more space in your home or office. There are two possible arrangements with the package unit. In the first component, all components, such as compressor and condenser (which can be cooled with air or water cooled) and the expansion valve and evaporator are placed in one box. Cold air is thrown by a high-capacity blower, and it flows through the channels placed in different rooms. In the second arrangement, the compressor and the capacitor are placed in one sheath. Compressed gas passes through individual units, consisting of expansion valve and cooler coil, located in different rooms.
Central air conditioning system
Central air conditioning is used to cool large buildings, homes, offices, entire hotels, gyms, cinemas, factories, etc. If the entire building is air-conditioned, then the HVAC engineers find that placing individual units in each room is too expensive to make this a better option. The central air conditioning system consists of a huge compressor that has the ability to produce hundreds of tons of air conditioners. Cooling large halls, malls, huge spaces, galleries, etc. is usually only useful with central air conditioners.
Of all the different types of air conditioners, this is one of the most common types of cooling systems, it is the best in large homes due to its ability to cool efficiently. Central air conditioners circulate cold air through the supply and return channels. The supply channels on the wall or floors carry cold air to the place or area to be cooled. After that, once the air becomes warm, it is circulated again in the supply channels as it will be transferred back to the air conditioner.
Installing a central air conditioning system requires a lot of planning and preparation as scaling is critical to system functions. If you install a wrong sized system, even if it is energy efficient, you will find that the tool costs too much.
Heat pumps (floor heating and cooling)
Heat pump is a kind of separate air conditioner system that uses both heating and cooling functions in the home. During the summer months, it provides cool air to flow around the house, and during the winter months, it provides warm air for comfort in cold weather. There are two types of heat pumps available:
Air Source Heat Pumps: These pumps pull heat from the air or release heat from home outdoors. Air source heat pumps achieve the target of heat and cool regardless of weather.
Geothermal heat pumps: Also known as geothermal heat pumps, they pull heat or return heat to the ground in order to cool and heat the home.
Geothermal energy is sustainable, energy-saving, and a long service life. Since the Earth’s temperature below us remains fairly constant 55 degrees, regardless of air or cold temperature in the atmosphere, geothermal technology is able to extract heat from below and transfer it to the home or surrounding environment. The geothermal energy coil (“rings” or “wells”) is installed deep in the ground and can be used to heat and cool the house. In winter, heat is extracted from the ground. In the summer, heat is extracted from the house and distributed again on the floor
