The Magic of Air Conditioning

There’s nothing quite as relaxing on a hot summer day in Niskayuna, N.Y. than cranking up the air conditioning and feeling the heat and humidity drift away. But even as you enjoy the soothing coolness coming from your AC system, did you ever stop to wonder what is going on inside to make you feel more comfortable?

At Family Danz Heating & Cooling, we’ve been selling, installing, and servicing AC systems throughout the Capital District of New York State for nearly 40 years. We know AC equipment inside and out, so we’ve seen what goes on in there.

It’s not magic, but a scientific process of air treatment that removes both heat and moisture. The AC system has three main parts — a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator — all working together to expel that hot air and return cool air to your home or office.

Air conditioners use chemical refrigerants to convert gas to liquid and then back again by lowering and then raising its temperature. The warm air is sucked into the system and forced over chiller pipes containing the coolant fluid. That air is cooled and the dehumidifier inside the AC unit removes excess moisture, and then the treated air is blown back into the room via a fan. At the same time, the heat that has been removed is expelled outside via a separate exterior vent.

At least, that is how the system is supposed to work. If you are finding your own air conditioning isn’t quite up to the task of keeping you comfortable in the Niskayuna, N.Y. summer heat, Family Danz is right here to put our four decades of experience to work for you. Give us a call and we’ll make sure every component of your air conditioning system is working at peak capacity to help you keep your cool all summer long.
