Air conditioning cools down your home by removing sensible heat from the living area. Central air conditioning system consist of Condenser (Outside Unit) and Evaporator Coil (Inside Unit). They work together to transfer the heat from return air to outside with the help of refrigerants like Freon (R-22) or R-410A in residential applications.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This rating is designed by AHRI to help homeowners choose more efficient cooling system for their home.Today there are mini-ductless, air source residential AC units available with SEER ratings up to 27.2 and forced air central air conditioners with SEER rating up to 25.
Since 2009, R-22 (Freon) as a ozone depleting refrigerant has been phase out and replaced by environmentally friendly refrigerant called R-410A. This new refrigerant operates in higher pressure and uses special synthetic oil.
Covering your air conditioner condenser unit is optional. It's important to remove the cover before starting your air conditioner since some homeowners forget to do so and burn their air conditioner accidentally.
