what are the things that you are looking for in an air conditioner? Number one in the list would be reducing energy. It is true that air conditions consume a lot of energy and electricity, thus our electricity bills easily shoot up. This may contribute to financial problems to families. Of course we always want an easy life, and one to contribute to that good mood is to have a cool air when at home, while during the cool weather, we want some warmth.

This is how I see it. Anyway, thanks for this commendable post.

In a split system, the compressor condenses and circulates the refrigerant through the outdoor unit, changing it from a gas to a liquid. The liquid is then forced through the indoor evaporator coil or cooling compartment.
