The air is the gaseous mixture comprises the atmosphere of
the Earth. The concept is often used to name the atmosphere
in general or the wind.
Conditioned, on the other hand, is something of
good quality or is in proper condition. The verb to condition refers
to giving a certain condition or quality to
something or arranging a thing in the right way for a certain purpose.
These two definitions allow us to understand the concept of air
conditioning, which is used to name the atmosphere of a closed
space that is subject to certain conditions of temperature, humidity and
pressure by artificial mechanisms.
abbreviationfinder, air conditioning, therefore, is a process that
involves some treatment of the air of an enclosure to create a pleasant
atmosphere for those in that space. Increasing or reducing the temperature and
humidity level of the air are usually the most common objectives, although the
process may also involve a renewal or filtration of the air.
In everyday language, the notion of air conditioning is also used to name
the systems or equipment that allow the
mentioned process to be carried out. For example: "Please, turn on the air
conditioning that I am dying of heat in this room", "We will have to
call a technician: the air conditioning is malfunctioning", "Next
summer we will buy an air conditioning for the bedroom since you can't sleep
like that ”.
Nowadays, both in different types of premises and in homes, air conditioning
has become one of the essential equipments to ensure that during the hottest
seasons, a pleasant temperature can be created in these spaces.
For this reason, it should be emphasized that in spring and summer it is
usual for electrical appliance companies to be accessed in order to buy such
equipment. However, this is not an easy task, since there are various modalities
• Window. It is one of the most used within any home and has the advantages that
it is very easy to install, that it has a very economic price and that it is
also easy to maintain. However, it should not be overlooked that, on the other
hand, it makes a forceful energy expenditure and that it is somewhat noisy.
• Roof console. Another of the most used air conditioners is this, which is
identified because it is installed through a somewhat more complicated
process. It is especially indicated for large spaces.
• Split. Under this name are the equipment that is placed on the wall and is
recommended for homes or even offices. They have an attractive and modern
design, generate little noise and are very easy to maintain. Against they have
to be placed by a much more complicated process than that of window air
Centrals or laptops are other types that exist in the market.
To cool the atmosphere, air conditioning often uses mechanical
compression to run a cyclical process of heat transfer from inside a
space to the outside. For this, it promotes the evaporation of refrigerant
substances that are in a liquid state at low temperature and pressure
and that evaporate when the air inside is extracted. A compressor is
in charge of absorbing and compressing said steam and condenses it through the
transfer of heat to the outside (colder) air. Finally, the refrigerant, in a
liquid state, returns through an expansion valve that reduces
pressure and temperature.
