How Does An Air Conditioner Work?
Air conditioners (AC) have become fundamental necessities for us as they are primary components of the central heating system and the cooling system in offices, homes, businesses, and other buildings. Air conditioners come in many different shapes and sizes, but they operate on the same principle.
The basic working principle of AC is that they draw the heat and humidity from your home, transferring them to the outside air and ultimately making your house colder. The cooled air is then returned to the inside space to maintain the cold temperature.
For this, sheet metal ductwork is used, and the process is carried out by a scientific principle, using a specialized chemical known as 'refrigerant".
The scientific principle mentioned above is the main working of air conditioners, while the rest is done mechanically. With that being said, let's take a detailed look at how air conditioning helps in keeping your house cool.
Types of Air Conditioner
Air conditioners are consumer electronics, and there are few main types of them:
A split unit air conditioner is the common air conditioner type in our home. It consists of two separate units: the air or water-cooled condensing unit and the air handling unit.
Cassette units work the same way as wall-hung split system units. Cassette differs from split as it is installed into the ceiling instead of on the wall.
As its name says, a portable air conditioner works the same way a wall-mounted one does, just that it is portable and more affordable.
How does an Air Conditioner cool your home?
To understand the working principle of air conditioners, you must know about the three major components that make up the air conditioner:
The three components work together for the air conditioner to work. First, a chemical called refrigerant is converted from gas to liquid and then back again. The pressure and temperature of the chemical are increased by the compressor, which then sends it to the condenser.Condenser and evaporator
The condenser performs the function of converting the refrigerant into a liquid. When the refrigerant is in liquid form, it goes back indoors to the evaporator coil. As the name suggests, the evaporator coil evaporates the refrigerant, which performs cooling the indoor coil.Cooled air out
A fan then blows the cooled air out, and the heat from the house is absorbed into the refrigerant. In the same way, the refrigerant is cooled down repeatedly until the house has reached the desired temperature. This process is repeated to bring the house to the required temperature.How does an Air Conditioner remove hot air and blow cold air?
In short, the refrigerant carries out the main working principle of the air conditioners.
First, the refrigerant absorbs the heat from the surroundings and increases its temperature. It then rises from the compressor to the condenser in the form of high-pressure and high-temperature gas.
The cold air produced is circulated outwards through a fan, which helps it distribute all over the desired places. In this way, the desired ambient temperature is achieved.
How Does SHARP's Plasmacluster Ion Technology Air Conditioner Work?
Plasmacluster ions are surrounded by water molecules and are released into the air. The ions form hydroxide (OH) radicals that will be highly oxidizing when they adhere to the surfaces of airborne microbes. The microbes including suspended allergens, bacteria, mold, and viruses.
Also, it removes hydrogen from the surface proteins, breaking them down. The hydroxide (OH) radicals combine with hydrogen(H) to form water (H20) which is returned to the air.
Advantages of SHARP Air Conditioner Plasmacluster Ion Technology
One of the unique features of SHARP Plasmacluster air conditioners is the production of positive and negative ions similar to those occurring in nature. These ions help combat many airborne viruses, mold, and other contaminants.
In addition, these air conditioners have a self-cleaning option which makes sure that your air conditioners are never dirty.
What makes SHARP Air Conditioner Plasmacluster Ion Technology different from others?
SHARP Plasmacluster air conditioners take a massive intake of hot air, which speeds up the cooling process. Through this, the temperature can be increased up to 5° in 5 minutes.
In addition, it also provides an extended (Coanda) airflow, which is about 15 meters. This makes sure that all the areas of your room are getting equal airflow.
Why should you choose SHARP Air Conditioner Plasmacluster Ion Technology?
SHARP air conditioners use AI and IoT integration. Motion detectors are used, which determine if someone is present in the room or not.
In addition, SHARP air conditioners can also work through Smart Control Apps on your phone. You can control your air conditioner via a smartphone even when you are away from home. What's exciting is, you can walk right into a comfortable home by turning on the air conditioner just before arriving home.
Also, you can easily adjust the air volume, wind direction, and timer settings at your fingertips.
SHARP Air app enables you to observe the temperature and humidity of the room anytime and anywhere to help you find the most suitable setting for your room.
The app allows you to view and monitor your air-conditioner operational usage to get better use out of your air conditioner. It even lets you know when to perform the cleaning service.
