Air conditioning is essential for anyone who lives in Montgomery County during the summertime. Although air conditioners almost seem complicated, what’s going on inside your AC unit is actually quite simple. All air conditioners operate on the principles of evaporation and heat exchange. When refrigerant inside an air conditioner evaporates, it cools down metal coil housings. Air blows over these super cold coils, providing cold air for your home. The gas is then converted back into a liquid and the continuous cycle starts again.

Make sure you receive AC maintenance and repair before temperatures raise and you’re left without cold air on a hot summer’s day.
